    When can you purchase a new annual pass?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Melissa. I'm glad you've dropped by to talk about Walt Disney World Annual Passes.

    I've been a passholder for several years now, Melissa, and I can say with absolute confidence it is well worth the initial investment. Some of my favorite perks include complimentary parking at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, the use of the Memory Maker for the entire year and discounts on food, merchandise and select resort stays. Plus, getting to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks pretty much any time I'd like is pretty cool too.

    Becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder is so much fun and I know that you are probably patiently (or impatiently) awaiting an announcement when the program will open back up for purchase. Unfortunately, at this time, Melissa, I don't have any news as to if or when it might return. I do think the program is here to stay, however. Current annual passholders, like myself, are being able to renew for next year at this time. This gives me hope that the program is not going anywhere and will open back up for purchase soon. I think the pause of new sales is a way that they are controlling theme park capacity since it is still operating at a limited number. But that is just speculation by me. 

    Until you are able to purchase a Walt Disney World Annual Pass, have you checked out any of the Florida resident discounts on tickets that are currently being offered? I see that is where you are from and if you haven't looked, you totally should because there are some great deals right now. There's a summer fun ticket being offered which is a 4-day ticket starting at $54.00 per day. That's amazing and the best part about those tickets is they are flexible. You can use them consecutively or break them up. They are flexible to work with your schedule. 

    I'm sorry I don't have better news for you as of right now. But be sure to keep your eyes open over on the Disney Parks Blog for an announcement about the return of sales for annual passes. I have my fingers crossed that you'll be able to join the passholder family really soon. If you have any other questions or just want to check back, please feel free to stop by and ask me. I'm here 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
