WDWNT will continue to update this story as more information becomes available.


According to a tweet from @imaginat1on, a Disney survey provides a glimpse into possible upcoming “membership” annual pass options. With Disneyland Annual Passes now a thing of the past, Disney is considering other options.

The survey image shared by @imaginat1on details possible “passport” options that include limited access and a reservation system.

Three Passports are available. All Passports include discounts on merchandise and food. Some Passports also include special event discounts and free or reduced parking. The survey also includes a 3 Day Multi-visit ticket, as well as 1-, 2-, and 3- day tickets.

Disneyland Resort Passports

The survey presents three different Passport options, each with unique features. All Passports have blockout dates. A Passport allows a guest to visit on one or two blockout dates, depending on the Passport’s limit.

Passports require a reservation. The reservation window varies based on the Passport. Two of the three Passports feature an “anytime reservation” that would allow guests to secure a reservation on short notice.

Discounts and other features vary based on the Passport. Passports are available for adults and children under 6.

I don’t see parkhopping specifically mentioned. Can one presume that is included in the Passports and/or ticket types? Another observation: the more expensive passport does not include Maxpass, yet the two $999 passports have vastly different features. Based on this snapshot from the survey, the choices seem to be a mix bag of good and not as good compared to the retired Signature APs and Premier AP.

Oh, and just how expensive will the food be if they’re considering a 30% discount on dining as a passport feature?

I also saw 10% food discounts in food and 30% on merch option? Gah!

Michael, I took the survey and anything is green is both parks, There were like 15 pages of passport options. Some of the pages had days marked in orange that were open only for California adventure.

Option # 1 is my pick. I eat lots of food at Disney but don’t buy much merchandise as an adult. I can live with 20% discount on parking because the annual price is less.

Seems like a lot of money for the most expensive one without all the features and still blockout days. I hope they do an all access like premiere pass that covers CA & FL with all the perks. $1399 is a lot to be missing some features.

I took the survey and there were like 15 pages of varying options (with one page literally just being 1-day, 2-day, and 3-day tickets). So don’t just take this one page as the end all be all.

Are you people crazy? At the prices your wanting to charge, an average income family couldn’t afford to come to Disney World! As former pass holders over the years, Disney has made it impossible for my family to ever be able to enjoy even a day at Disney World. I understand the bottom line is profit for shareholders and the way overpaid CEO. If Disney continues at this rate, you people will be filing for bankruptcy in the not so distant future. My family have always loved coming to Disney World in the past years, but can no longer afford… Read more »

*This is all based off of Non-COVID times*

As a former WDW AP, the Fastpass+ system was the practically bane of my existence. However, WDW is more vacation-based, so the planning makes sense. I’ve heard, however, that Disneyland is more friendly towards spontaneous visits, because most people attending the park are locals. (Again, this is from what I’ve heard). Based on this, I feel that a reservation-based system would not go over well at a park who’s visitors tend to decide to visit spontaneously. Y’all from SoCal can correct me if I’m off 🤣.

As a former AP holder of varying levels. I did have a top tier AP once or twice during my time I can say that definitely, most visits were of spontaneous nature (either day of or the day before). Heck there were even times where we would decide at 6 at night, let’s go to Disneyland and Power Hour Disneyland getting as many rides as we could!

Man I don’t like any of this. No thanks Not signing up for reservation annual passes at basically the same prices as before. I’ll spend my money elsewhere.

I don’t like any of them!! I’m a 20yr plus AP and I don’t want make reservations and some with no parking option? Just get rid of monthly payments. Payments in full and that will cut AP’s in half.

Disneyland has completely forgotten their disabled AP’s. I never know if I will be strong enough to go from one hour to the next. I have good days and days I never leave my bed. If I reserve a date then wake up sick I’m screwed. Or if I get to the park and pay $$300+ for one day and then have to leave after an hour due to my conditions that would be terrible! My first ap with parking cost less than the day passes now! Plus the parking. I spent $2080 on parking alone in one year without… Read more »
