BREAKING: Disney World Pausing Sale of MOST New Annual Passes

Back in September, Disney World debuted a new Annual Passholder system, with Annual Passes resuming sales for the first time since the parks closed in March 2020.

At the time, Disney also shared that they could pause the sale of new Annual Passes at any time in an effort to manage capacity in the parks and limit attendance.

According to an update on the Walt Disney World website, Disney will be pausing any new sales of Disney Incredi-Pass, Disney Sorcerer Pass, and Disney Pirate Pass starting tonight.


While the three upper levels of Disney World’s Annual Passes will not be available for new sales, the Disney Pixie Dust Pass will still be available to new customers at a price of $399 plus tax. Notably, the Disney Incredi-Pass is the only Annual Pass option that had been available to non-Florida residents.


While the sale of new Annual Passes will be paused, current Passholders may still continue to renew into any of the four Pass types when their renewal period begins. Additionally, current Passholders with the Incredi-Pass, Sorcerer Pass, Pirate Pass, or Pixie Dust Pass may still customize their Pass with add-on options outside of their renewal window.


While Disney will continue to evaluate the sales of new Annual Passes, in the mean time, only Florida residents will have access to the sale of new Annual Passes with the only option of the Pixie Dust Pass.

  1. Yes get a new CEO. This guy is terrible. We have been passholders for several years. For me, and less so my wife WDW is like a drug addiction I love the place and will probably keep renewing our pass. It’s hard to notice the place is going down hill

  2. I’ve stated it before and don’t mean to alienate Florida residents, but I can’t for the life of me understand why Disney continues to pander to the Florida residents with much cheaper admission tickets while claiming to be fighting the over crowded park problem.

  3. As a DVC owner this is extremely frustrating. I wanted buy in the spring. I called DVC when sales first opened and asked if I needed to buy then. I was told DVC annual passes don’t sell out and I had nothing to worry about.

  4. Clearly the Disney Company would like people to visit non-Disney theme parks more often.

    Chapek is clearly trying to burn the company’s relationship with its theme park guests to the ground.

  5. And you know what will happen when they go back on sale?
    There will be a massive price hike!
    I guarantee it.
    I think this was manufactured and Disney’s plan all along.
    Bob Paycheck’s ultimate goal is charge more for less. So here we go again.

    1. Absolutely Agee. We purchased our first annual passes in 2010 for $450. Now, eleven years later (prior to t this recent discontinuance), the price was $1300. Without checking what the actual inflation was over that 11 year period, I’m pretty certain it was not 200% that was reflected in the selling price of the annual passes. So sad to see what has happened.

  6. Guests keep pouring into the parks. Lack of staff noticeable everywhere. I think Disney has a staff shortage, not a guest shortage. Park passes are in demand, if you want to visit a park on short notice it’s impossible. Here’s an idea- sell last minute park passes for $30-$50 a day. Disney is putting a price tag on everything else, why not this? Desperate out of town guests would pay

    1. Nah…the only misstep is listening to the fans and social media. What’s that sports quote…something like “if you listen to the fans, you’ll be sitting with them soon enough”. Quit listening to fans, make a decision, and follow it through fully instead of going halfway and pleasing no one. But don’t listen to me either, as I am a fan, haha.
