    All passed are currently unavailable for purchase except for the pixie dust pass. However I've never seen the others available since launch, but I've heard about other people having them. Are they only available for pass renew upgrades?

    Hey there Karl!

    Welcome to planDisney. I'm so glad you stopped by with this question. Like you, I'm eagerly awaiting an announcement about the sale of new Annual Passes for Walt Disney World Resort. The Disney Pixie Dust Pass is currently available for Florida residents to purchase, but as an out-of-state guest, this leaves me feeling like a combo of Inside Out's Sadness and Anger. 

    As we know, Walt Disney World Resort entered a period of phased re-opening post-pandemic and new sales of the existing Annual Passes were paused. I can confirm that Annual Passes did return renamed and at different price points in September 2021. I know this because those new sales coincided with my birthday and I debated on purchasing one for myself then, or waiting to upgrade a two-day ticket I already had for my visit a few months later. I decided on the latter, but my plans were foiled when sales of these new Annual Passes were paused in late November 2021. We've been waiting for their return since then, but I'm sure a number of people did decide to purchase in that three-month window which is why you're likely hearing about them being current Passholders. Others maintained their Annual Passes through the park closure, so there are likely a variety of renewal scenarios still happening at this time. Guests who purchased a pass are able to renew within 30 days of their anniversary, subject to availability.

    When I think about that missed buying opportunity, I feel like Sadness all over again. “I’m too sad to walk. Just give me a few… hours.” But I'm waiting patiently and hoping I'll be feeling like Joy soon enough. I'm "thinking positive" that I'll eventually make a year full of core memories in my happy place before we know it!

    In the meantime, I plan to enjoy some shorter visits and experience all the thrills at the parks. I'm especially looking forward to riding TRON Lightcycle / Run presented by Enterprise later this month. I'll be telling Fear to take a backseat while I enter the grid.

    There's always a way to turn things around and find the fun!
