As we warned you on Saturday, new Walt Disney World annual passes were indeed introduced this weekend. Walt Disney World’s official website offers a breakdown of the four new passes: Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Plus –
The main differences are really in the block out dates. Silver retains the blockout dates of the former Seasonal Annual Pass, while Gold will not allow access during the Christmas season and the peak of Spring Break season. Silver is the only of the passes above that does not offer PhotoPass downloads, but it does now offer free parking at the Walt Disney World theme parks.
Parking around the resort also saw an increase overnight. Basic parking at theme parks is now $20, while valet at the resort hotels is $10 for the first two hours and $20 for 3 or more.
The bicoastal Premier Passport also saw a large price increase, now $1439.00 plus tax.
