Have a Disney World Annual Pass? Here's What You Need to Know
Annual pass-holders to Walt Disney World have new options, as the theme park is now allowing you to defer payments.
Walt Disney World closed on March 16 and will remain empty of guests until at least April 30.
For all, pass benefits remain active. For example, those interested in buying tickets to a future event such as “Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party” are offered discounted pass-holder prices when logged into their account.
Disney says on it's website that it acknowledges pass-holders as “some of our most loyal guests” and says the COVID-19 virus has led to an “unprecedented time.” The company thanked pass-holders for “your patience as we work through the many details related to the temporary closure of the theme parks.”
Pass-holders who have already paid in full will automatically have the validity of their pass extended by the amount of time the theme parks remain closed. But, if desired, those pass-holders may request a partial refund reflecting the length of the shutdown.
Those on monthly payment plans also have two options.
Disney will stop collecting the monthly installments as of April 5 and refund any payments made between March 14 and April 4. Once the parks reopen, payments will resume and passes will still expire as scheduled.
An alternative is, pass-holders on payment plans can choose to extend their passes equal to the time the parks are shut. They still won’t pay until the parks reopen, and their monthly charges will be extended through their new expiration date.
Those with immediate questions can call 407-939-7277, though the company warned there could be significant wait times.
