Walt Disney World Adding One Month to Annual Passes or Offering Partial Refunds or Cancellations to Make Up for Reservation System Limitations

With the new Disney Park Pass Reservation system in place, Disney will be offering Annual Passholders some ways to offset the loss in value of needing park reservations to enter and no longer being able to park hop:

Annual Passholders who paid in full for their tickets will automatically get an extra month added to their pass in October 2020 if they do nothing. Alternatively, they can choose to cancel the remainder of their annual pass for a partial refund.

Annual Passholders on monthly payment plans (payments resume July 11th by the way) will automatically get the extra free month by taking no action. They can slo chose to cancel their annual pass and waive monthly payments due after August 11, 2020. Any payments made between July 11 and August 11, 2020 will be retroactively refunded for those that select this option and all future payments will be stopped.

Disney will send information in July on how to take these actions, if you want to do so.

One month? That’s it? The reservation system lasts until September OF NEXT YEAR, and they’ve already implied that park-hopping won’t happen until January at the earliest. How is this even remotely a good business decision. What about everyone who buys a platinum pass at full price? As it is, the renewal price for someone who bought it last year is absurdly high for NOTHING good to come from it. And because they’re closing the parks much too early, we’re paying $1200 just to watch a few channels on basic TV when we find ourselves shuttled back to the hotel at… Read more »

Just ask for a refund from March 16 to your expiration date, then call Morgan & Morgan if they refuse

Lynn did you call Morgan and Morgan? Do you know how much the payment is from March to September?

Is this month in addition to the reimbursement for the closed months or you just get 1 month full stop?

this makes it sound like the “partial refund” is for more than just the 116 days of the closure, but possibly for the entire unused portion after the closing. Do we have the specific details on the refunds?

Is the Annual Pass going to be next to worthless if you are opting to stay on property. The reason I ask is if you read the “Introducing the Disney Park Pass System” paper from Disney, in there they make the comment, “if you have a room only reservation at a Disney Resort or other select hotel for a stay in 2021, please call the Disney Reservation Center or call our travel professional beginning on June 24 to upgrade to a vacation package with tickets-and then make your theme park reservations.” This makes me wonder if you will have to… Read more »

Wow so the final screwing over of pass holders begins. Payments resume July 11th and we are expected to pay full price for a paper weight? Are you serious right now? Pass holder passes have lost all their amenities at the moment and some for rest of the year and Walt Disney thinks that’s ok.

This doesn’t seem to be getting the proper coverage either. Passholders are being taken to the cleaners
