If you’re an Annual Passholder, you may want to check your MyDisneyExperience account to see if you have received your expiration extension. Disney previously shared that “all active Walt Disney World Resort theme park and water park Annual Passes will be extended for the number of days the parks are closed. The new expiration date will be reflected on the Annual Passholder’s account prior to the reopening of the parks.” Yesterday, Passholders began noticing Disney has began updating those expiration dates.


Keep in mind, Disney has shared having an Annual Pass does not guarantee park entry. According to the Walt Disney World website:

“We understand how much excitement, thought and time goes into planning your Disney visits and realize some new changes may be disappointing. For example, during this unprecedented time, an annual pass will not guarantee park entry and Annual Passholders will be required to make an advance reservation to enter a park.”

  • “During the limited capacity period, it may be difficult for Annual Passholders to get park reservations to visit on certain dates. To help manage capacity, total reservation days held at one time will be limited. More details will be shared in the coming weeks.
  • Some pass benefits and features will not be available during periods of limited capacity. Also, park experiences and offerings will be modified and subject to limited availability or even closure.
  • Annual passes are subject to blockout dates. Guests should ensure their pass type is valid for park entry prior to making a park reservation.”


There is also a preview opportunity for Annual Passholders that we are eager to learn more about! According to Disney’s website “As we prepare for the reopening of the parks, we’re planning a special preview opportunity for Annual Passholders. We look forward to sharing details with you soon.”
