If you’ve been hoping to sign up for a new Annual Pass, and you don’t live in Florida, then you may be out of luck for the time being, because Disney has temporarily stopped the sale of three of its popular Annual Passes! Scott Gustin shared the news on Twitter last night, as did journalist Ashley Carter. The Disney Pirate Pass, Disney Sorcerer Pass, and Disney Incredi-Pass are all unavailable, meaning that the only remaining pass for any new customers is the Disney Pixie Dust Pass. Since that pass is only for Florida residents, it essentially means that there’s no Annual Passes available for new customers who don’t live in Florida–at least for now. The Disney Pirate Pass, Disney Sorcerer Pass, and Disney Incredi-Pass are expected to return in 2022, but that is not confirmed.
NEW: Walt Disney World is pausing new sales of some of its annual passes.
The Pirate, Sorcerer and Incredi-Pass are no longer being sold. The Pixie Dust (FL residents) is the only pass available for new purchases.

If you already have one of the three Annual Passes that have been suspended, no worries! You can still renew them; it’s only new customers who are out of luck.
According to Ashley Carter, “Disney said that annual passes could become unavailable for purchase as it “continues to manage attendance”” back in September when the Annual Pass sales resumed. With the holidays approaching, reservations for Disney World will already be in high demand–not to mention the celebration of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, which is ongoing and will result in some particularly special holiday celebrations this year–and the temporary removal of three Annual Pass options will no doubt be a big inconvenience for some prospective Disney World Guests who don’t live in the state of Florida! Have you been hoping to visit Walt Disney World for the holidays this season, and to enjoy some of the exclusive holiday meals being offered?
