In addition to the many benefits being brought back for some of the theme parks’ most popular client base, they have also included unique perks for Annual Pass holders and Disney Cast Members.

Beginning next year, on select days, Annual Pass holders and Cast Members may visit the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, or Animal Kingdom without ANY theme Park reservation. These are known as “Good-to-go days” and may vary by Park. However, Annual Pass block-out dates and capacity limitations continue to apply as they normally would. The days will be rolled out on an ongoing basis and offered in addition to the new 2 p.m. rule recently introduced.

More to Come?

Some think these announcements enhance the experience of Park visits for all Guests, Cast Members, and hard-core Disney World fans. In recent years, the removal of perks such as the Disney Magical Express busses and others has been highly controversial and criticized by many Disney Park Guests. The company has walked back some of these measures, such as removing the parking fees associated with staying at a Disney Resort. More announcements will likely be made shortly as Disney continues to make the experience of planning a vacation to their world-class theme parks easier.

DeSantis Epcot Monorail

As Disney continues its fight with Governor Ron DeSantis over local ordinances, monorail inspections, and taxes, it seems like Disney is more than happy to reward its loyal customers.




About Steven Wilk

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
