Hold More Park Reservations

  • Except for the lowest level pass, Disney World annual pass holders will now be able to hold more Park Pass reservations – from three to four or five.
  • Disney also announced they will add “bonus reservations” on occasion to allow additional park reservation that does not count toward the limit.
  • If a Passholder stays at Disney Resort hotels or other select hotels, they can make Park Pass park reservations for each day of their stay in addition to the reservations based on their pass type.

Customize Your Pass

  • Passholders can add on Water Park and Sports options, or Disney PhotoPass downloads.
  • Adding on PhotoPass seems to suggest it will no longer be included for free.

New Integrated Calendar

  • Disney will update its reservation system with a new integrated calendar that shows Passholders blockout dates, available days, and reservation actions in one place.

Passholder Perks:

  • Park Hopper
  • Standard parking
  • Discounts on merchandise and dining
  • Surprises during the 50th-anniversary celebration!

Other Disney World Annual Passholder Items

  • Disney may limit or stop the sales of  Annual Passes
  • Passholders will still need Park Pass reservations
  • Current Passholders can use their passes as they do today.  Upon renewal, they can select one of the four new pass types at renewal rates
