Annual Passholders Surveyed about Blackout Dates at Walt Disney World

It has been reported that the Disney survey teams are surveying annual passholders to determine how the passholders would react to 2 months of blackout dates after new attractions have launched.  They are curious to know how annual passholders would react and if they would purchase separate admission, upgrade their current pass to a pass without blackout dates or if they would just wait until the blackout dates were lifted to experience the new attraction.  It appears that based on the outcome of this study we may see more changes to the annual passholder blackout dates and/or see blackout dates that aren’t only limited to particular peak weeks and seasons, but also attraction schedules.  We will keep you posted as we learn more and anything official is announced.


About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
