    Hi! New Florida resident here! So excited about the annual passes coming back! What time on April 20th will they be available for purchase? This will make my year!!! Thanks!!!!

    Welcome back to planDisney, Emilia! With the recent announcement about Annual Passes returning, it feels a bit like Coronation Day, doesn't it? Many guests have been anxiously awaiting this event, and excitement is certainly in the air! As a long-time Florida resident, I'd like to welcome you to the Sunshine State. You'll love the Florida Resident benefits at Walt Disney World Resort, Emilia. My favorite benefit has been the Pixie Dust Annual Pass. It's a weekday-only pass only available to Florida residents and has been perfect for my family. 

    As you know, all Annual Pass levels will go on sale to the public on April 20. I have many friends who are plotting their strategy for purchasing their passes that day, but the tricky part is that we don't know specific details like the time of day sales will begin or how many passes will be available. It's all part of going into the unknown, Emilia! I know I'll be watching the Disney Parks Blog and the official Walt Disney World social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram for any details leading up to April 20. 

    Starting later this month, passholders will have a new benefit to enjoy. They can enter a theme park after 2:00 PM without a Theme Park Reservation. The exception to this new benefit is Magic Kingdom on the weekends, but this will be a game changer for many local passholders. I'm not local, but I spend several weeks in the area during winter, so I plan to take full advantage of this! 

    When you visit in June, check out the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. I recently completed the Garden Graze food stroll and highly recommend the Impossible Lumpia! My family also looks forward to fun music at the Garden Rocks Concert Series. You're going to have a blast!

    Emilia, I'm hoping that for the first time in forever you find the perfect pass for your family. Please stop by planDisney anytime! 

    Magic awaits,
