    When will the annual Passholders be available for purchase? Please don’t say soon.

    Hey there, Shelby!

    Here at planDisney, we are a group of moms, dads, grandparents, aunts, uncles and even puppy parents that love sharing our knowledge and expertise about visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. Because we are Guests just like you, we aren't privy to the type of information that you are looking for. I can honestly say I don't know a date for the return of sales for the Walt Disney World Annual Passes except for soon. The Disney Parks Blog did release an article a few weeks ago confirming that the program will be back open for sales and definitely before the big celebration kick off on October 1st. So that does narrow it down to the next few months. 

    I see that you have a vacation planned for mid-October. I would expect, given the announcement, that you should be able to purchase your annual pass before then. If I were you, I'd go ahead and purchase theme park tickets so you can make your park pass reservations. Right now you can choose from a standard theme park ticket that allows entry into one park per day or you can upgrade to include the park hopper pass. Park hopping is where you can visit multiple Walt Disney World Theme Parks in one day. There isn't a bad choice but I personally love park hopping. Once you've gotten your tickets and linked them to your MyDisneyExperience account you can make park pass reservations. This guarantees you a spot at the Walt Disney World Theme Park you'd like to visit each day. If the Walt Disney World Annual Pass is released for sale before your vacation, you can always just apply the cost of your tickets toward your annual pass. 

    I'm sorry I don't have more information for you, Shelby. I have my fingers crossed that you'll be able to join the Walt Disney World Annual Passholder family very soon. If you have any other questions in the meantime, please stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help! 

    Have a great day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
