    I am a Florida resident and almost always had Florida annual passes for me and my family. We just happened to not renew temporarily last year and then COVID happened. I want to know if past passholders are, or will soon be able to, purchase passes?

    Hey there, Catherine. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. I've been an Annual Passholder for many years and totally understand your want to get your's back as soon as possible! The benefits like room discounts, a year's worth of the memory maker downloaded straight to your phone, food and merchandise discounts and free parking at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks are just incredible perks. 

    Catherine, Walt Disney World is currently not selling new Annual Passes to the general public just yet. The good news is I don't think the program is going anywhere because Guests whose current passes are about to expire are being allowed to renewed at this time. Annual Passes are also being sold to two other groups of people right now. Guests with an active Annual Pass that have a child that has turned three are being able to purchase a new Annual Pass for their child. Also, Guests who during the shutdown decided to take a refund for their entire Annual Pass instead of just extending the lifetime of their passes are being able to purchase a new Annual Pass on a case-by-case basis. All of this leads me to believe that the sale of Annual Passes to everyone else is not too far behind. When the announcement is made, you'll be able to find all of the information on the Disney Parks Blog. 

    Catherine, if you still need tickets for your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation you can choose from two different options. Right now, you are able to purchase a standard theme park ticket which allows you to enter one of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks per day. The other option you currently have is a standard theme park ticket with the park hopper option. This ticket allows you to visit multiple Walt Disney World Theme Parks each day. Park hopping has just recently returned, since the start of this year, and does look a little bit different than it did before. Currently, if you are wishing to park hop you must make a park pass reservation for the first park you'd like to visit each day. On the day of park hopping, you must scan in and enter the Walt Disney World Theme Park with your park pass reservation first to activate your hopper feature. Park hopping hours are now from 2:00 p.m. and last until each park closes. I also should mention that park hopping is subject to capacity limitations at this time. I've been park hopping a little over 2 months now and have not run into any capacity problems when I've wanted to hop but you should just be aware. 

    Catherine. I have my fingers crossed that you'll be able to purchase a new Annual Pass very soon. I hope you have a great time visiting Walt Disney World. If you have any other questions before your trip, please feel free to come back and ask me

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
