After Disneyland released all the details about its new Magic Key program, it was only a matter of time before Disney World detailed their new Annual Pass system as well!
And today is the day. We now have TONS of new information on Disney World’s new Annual Pass program. Starting September 8th, Annual Passes will now come in four different tiers that have various pricing and blockout dates. After looking through all of the passes, the was one BIG thing that we wanted to point out!
Before we dive in, let’s do a quick breakdown of the Annual Pass options that are now available!
The Disney Incredi-Pass is the most expensive with NO blockout dates for guests. Passholders are able to hold up to 5 park reservations at one time as part of the $1,299 price tag.
Next is the Disney Sorcerer Pass, which has limited blockout dates and the ability to hold 5 park reservations at a time for $899.
The Disney Pirate Pass will give guests the ability to hold 4 park reservations at a time with blockout dates at peak times and the holiday season for $699.
And, the least expensive Disney Pixie Dust Pass will include 3 park reservations at once, but the most blockout dates for $399.
While you may be considering the pros and cons of which pass would work the best for you, Disney World is actually limited WHO can buy the new Annual Passes.
Guests who either don’t live in Florida or are not Disney Vacation Club Members will only be able to buy ONE kind of Annual Pass. Disney has shared that the Disney Pirate Passes and Disney Pixie Dust Passes will be exclusively available to Florida Residents only. And, the Disney Sorcerer Pass will only be available to Florida Residents or Disney Vacation Club Members as well.
That only leaves the most expensive Disney Incredi-Pass as open to all guests looking to purchase an Annual Pass. We will let you know if this changes, but for now, there is only one option for out-of-state guests (unless you’re a DVC member).
It is important to note that Disney has already shared that passes can sell out, so there is a limited number in place already. If you plan on buying an Annual Pass to Disney World, you may want to consider whether these restrictions make the passes worth it for you and your budget.
