BREAKING NEWS: Disney World Making Major Changes to Passes

Disney World has made significant changes to annual passes. The Seasonal Pass will be replaced by a Disney Silver Pass version and a Disney Gold Pass version. Both the Silver and Gold Passes will have blackout dates. The Standard Annual Pass will be renamed Disney Plantinum Pass. Finally, the Premium Annual Pass will be renamed the Disney Platinum Plus Pass and will continue to include admission to the water parks.

The name change is just the start. The Gold, Platinum and Platinum Plus Passes will now include complimentary PhotoPass downloads. This is a significant additional benefit for pass holders worth $199 dollars. This is likely a replacement for Disney Quest admission that will be lost when Disney Quest closes. However, this is a significantly better benefit for pass holders both in value and broader appeal. This is a very exciting news and makes an annual pass a great choice for even more guests.

Read details on what what this means for current pass holders here.

Changes take effect on Sunday, October 4. As we learn more about additional changes we’ll keep you updated. Sign up for our email newsletter to be sure you are the first to know.

We recently published an article highlighting why most people would benefit from purchasing an annual pass and broke down the savings it provided. Read that article here.





About Chad Nykamp

Husband, father and lover of all things Disney. Like every kid, I loved Disney and the couple trips I took to Disney World in my early years are good memories. But my obsession began in 2004 when we made our first family visit. It's hard to believe that we almost cancelled the trip because it seemed like a lot of work with 3 very little kids. We were hooked by the end of the first day. By day 3 we were planning our next trip back. By day 5 we were doing the math on DVC. And by the end of the vacation everyone was crying the blues that we had to leave. Since then, Disney World has become our favorite vacation destination, a hobby and now a home. We love the detail of the story telling and the memories of time spent with friends and family.
