Announcing New Annual Passes

Starting September 8, 2021, Walt Disney World Resort will introduce 4 new Annual Passes—each bringing the special kind of magic that calls just for you.

Get Into the Magic with Your Annual Pass

Magic is calling you like never before during the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort—The World’s Most Magical Celebration. And as an Annual Passholder, you don’t want to miss a moment of it. With your Annual Pass, you can experience what’s new during this 18-month celebration—and revisit spots where some of your favorite memories were made.
An Annual Pass isn’t just a way for you to get into the magic, it’s the key to getting the magic into you. So you can say… “That’s my magic.”

Top Things to Know for Annual Passholders

Discover what’s exciting and new:


A New Look

With the Annual Passholder program’s new look and feel, we wanted to honor our past while looking forward to the future. Using a piece of the original Walt Disney World Resort logo as a foundation for bright colors and energetic design, the program’s new look puts Passholders right in the middle of the magic.
Coming soon, current, active Annual Passholders will be among the first to receive the brand-new Passholder magnet featuring our new look. It’s our way of saying “thank you” for being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder. (Two magnets per household. Not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged magnets).

Annual Passholders staying at select Disney Resort or other select hotels are still eligible to make theme park reservations for each day of their Resort stay(s), in addition to holding their maximum number of theme park reservations at a time on a rolling basis.
And starting September 8, 2021 select Annual Passes will be able to hold more reservations at a time:

  • Platinum Plus, Platinum and Gold Annual Passes: Up to 5 reservations held at a time

In an effort to make the reservation program more seamless, on September 8, 2021, Walt Disney World Resort will introduce an enhanced theme park reservation calendar that shows booked reservations, park availability and blockout dates. All current reservations will be maintained with the ability to make and modify additional new reservations as part of the update.
