Some interesting news out of Walt Disney World- currently, all annual passes except for Disney Pixie Dust pass are currently suspended for purchase. While Annual Passes just came back a short time ago, we’re now seeing this pause on them. Why, you might wonder? Well if we put our .02 cents in, we’ve been having a hard time securing some park reservations from time to time. When we think about past experiences at WDW and being an AP, we never needed to make park reservations until after the parks reopened. Due to park capacity and a major influx of travelers, we think that Disney is still limiting park capacity and this is one way to regulate it.

The upside of this all? Parks aren’t as crowded and ride times should hopefully stay lower. The down side? If you were thinking of grabbing an AP, you’re going to have to wait.

We’ll report back if we hear more on this situation.
