Walt Disney World values its Annual Passholders, and has just announced several new and exciting things coming to the Parks specifically for these AP holders.
One of those things includes V.I.PASSHOLDER Days!
V.I.PASSHOLDER Days at Disney World
Per Disney, “As one of our most valued guests, we are excited to introduce V.I.PASSHOLDER Days, featuring limited-time offerings just for Passholders coming to Walt Disney World Resort. It’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ for being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder!”
Their announcement continued, “V.I.PASSHOLDER Days will begin for a limited-time in June with more details to be announced soon, but just for our Passholders, we are excited to give this first look at what is coming.”
What Else Is Coming For Annual Passholders?
Disney World Annual Passholders can also look forward to a new Passholder magnet, which Disney teases is Figment by the verbiage. “No, it’s not your imagination—a new Passholder magnet is coming! Check out the special sneak peek video and see if it sparks any guesses as to who will be featured.,” they wrote.
Passholders will also have a “limited-time, exclusive space to rest and cool off with dedicated seating” as well as two limited-time photo opportunities to capture memories of their latest park visit.
In addition to all of these new and exciting things, Disney Passholders will also receive new discounts, as Disney announced, “Passholders can enjoy increased discounts on select merchandise and dining locations across Walt Disney World Resort, including select EPCOT International Flower and Garden Outdoor Kitchens.”
And lastly, Passholders can look forward to new, exclusive treats which will be available for purchase soon.
Disney World Resume Sales Of Annual Passes
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit and the Walt Disney World theme parks shut down, the company decided to pause new Annual Passholder sales. After the Parks reopened, Disney announced a brand-new Annual Passholder system with different types of Annual Passes; however, new Annual Passes could not be purchased — only those who previously had an Annual Pass could renew.
After being put on hold indefinitely for three years, fans of Walt Disney World can once again become Annual Passholders as sales resumed on April 20, 2023.
Guests who decide to become a Disney World Annual Passholder will be able to experience the magic as often as they’d like. For starters, the highly-anticipated fireworks show, “Happily Ever After,” just made its triumphant return last month, meaning with an Annual Pass, you can go see this show as many times as you’d like!
In addition to “Happily Ever After”, a brand-new rollercoaster at Magic Kingdom inside Walt Disney World also just opened — TRON Lightcycle / Run, and over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the world’s first “Toy Story”-themed table-service restaurant, Roundup Rodeo BBQ, recently opened, meaning Guests can chow down on a rootin’ tootin’ meal as often as they’d like with their Annual Pass.
But that’s not all because Passholders will now receive access to select Disney PhotoPass benefits. “We are so grateful for our Passholders who have a deep, strong connection to Walt Disney World, and we are looking forward to welcoming more of you to the Annual Passholder family, just in time to experience the feelings of a Disney Thrill this spring and summer,” Senior Manager of Communications Eric Scott shared in the announcement.
