Disney’s Annual Passes Are Out

The highly-anticipated annual passes are back as of September 8th, with four new offerings! These include the Incredi-pass for $1299, the Sorcerer pass for $899, the Pirate pass for $699, and the Pixie Dust Pass for $399. The water park and sports passes, as well as the PhotoPass options, can be added for $99 each plus tax; this applies to all four different passes, whereas in the past Disney Guests could only access the Water Park and Sports offerings with Platinum Plus. Ashley Carter released this information in the following Tweet:

These new annual passes will still include the Park Hopper offer, standard parking, and discounts of up to 20% on merchandise and dining. “Bonus reservations” will also be offered to Annual Passholders, as indicated by Scott Gustin in the following Tweet, and anyone with a current pass can renew their pass until September 7th.

On September 8th, all options will switch over to the four new offers. The exact details for the different pass options are also below:

Renewal prices differ from the above-stated prices, however. Annual passholders who are renewing into the new pass programs will have cheaper costs. The Incredi-pass costs $1,104 for them, the Sorcerer Pass costs $764, the Pirate Pass costs $594, and the Pixie Dust Pass costs $339. Monthly payment options are offered for Florida residents, after a $205 down payment.

Park reservation limits are also being increased across the board. According to Gustin, this will be effective on the 8th. Platinum Plus, Platinum, and Gold will each include 5 reservations, Silver will offer 4, and Theme Park Select, Weekday Select, and EPCOT After 4 will each include 3.

A summary of each plan’s offerings is below. If you’re staying at a Walt Disney World hotel, you will still be eligible for length-of-stay park reservations, and bonus reservations from these new passes won’t count against your allotted number.

Gustin noted that after September 8th, eligible tickets may only be upgraded in person (with website and app capabilities coming later), and he released the blockout calendars for each of the four new passes, shown below (the Incredi-pass does not have blockout dates). Gustin also observed that there’s been a logo change. He applauded the logo’s similarities with the vintage Walt Disney World logo.
