Recent COVID-19 era changes to Disney Park policies and operations have resulted in the infamous Park Reservation system, which makes it difficult for Walt Disney World Annual Passholders to truly go whenever they’d like.

While it’s been confirmed that the Park Reservation system is here to stay, Annual Passholders may be getting a slight pass with Disney’s newest Passholder perk: “relaxed visits.”

These ‘relaxed visits’ mean that Walt Disney World Annual Passholders can make trips to Disney Parks in the afternoon without needing Park Reservations. Walt Disney World Annual Passholders can finally enjoy their spontaneous trips to Disney again.

The only catch? These spontaneous trips cannot be made on Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom. That being said, pass blockout dates will still apply.

According to Disney’s official announcement, Annual Passholders “will also receive access to Disney PhotoPass lenses and one complimentary Cinderella Castle Mural of Memories experience.”

This new perk will begin soon, “in the next few months.” Disney Tips will continue to keep Guests updated on the situation as more information becomes available.
