We just shared the news that Walt Disney World will be opening one of its two water parks on March 7, 2021! However, I find myself in the same old Passholder predicament I’ve been in during these last few months- what does all this mean regarding my platinum plus annual pass?
As per Disney, due to the current closure of Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, Disney will be automatically issuing Platinum Plus Annual Passholders with water park access a partial refund. This refund amount is based on the price difference between the price you paid for your Platinum Plus Pass and the price of a Platinum Annual Pass prorated by the number of days left on your pass prior to Water Park reopening.
You can learn more details as to when partial refunds apply and how they are calculated here. For those on the Annual Pass Monthly Payment program, please note you will receive a lump sum refund as noted above, however, your ongoing monthly payment will not change.
Refunds to the original form of payment can be expected by late October through early November. If the original form of payment is not available, you should expect a check by late November. Your pass will still include admission to Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course and if Disney Water Parks and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex reopen before your pass expires, you can visit them too.
Please note, Platinum Plus renewals are not available at this time, but you will have the ability to select from a variety of passes once it’s time for your pass renewal. If you have further questions, concerns or unique circumstances, please contact V.I.PASSHOLDER Support at 407-939-7277 for assistance.
