The Magic Shot will be available with PhotoPass photographers by Discovery River near the Tree of Life from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. from May 31 through June 30. In the photo, one guest will be holding the boot with a plant from “WALL-E,” while the two robots stand next to them. Similar WALL-E and EVE Magic Shots have previously been available during Earth Day celebrations.

Disney teased a second limited-time photo op during the V.I.PASSHOLDER Days announcement.

Also during V.I.PASSHOLDER Days, Walt Disney World Annual Passholders visiting EPCOT will be able to enjoy an exclusive space at The Land Pavilion and pick up the new Figment Annual Passholder magnet. Annual Passholders will also receive a 10% increase in discounts for select dining and merchandise purchases.

V.I.PASSHOLDER Nights was a free after hours event previously held at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT.

Walt Disney World Annual Pass Program

Walt Disney World Annual Passes were sold continuously from September 1982 until March 2020. Since then, the price had increased dramatically, multiple tiers were introduced with various blackout dates and benefits to match. At times, the resort even encouraged guests to become Passholders through advertising at the parks, around Central Florida, and through benefits like discounts on merchandise and food.

Of course, at the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, that all changed. While Walt Disney World did not go the route of Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Resort by canceling every Annual Pass and issuing refunds, nor did they resume sales immediately as the Paris, Hong Kong, and Shanghai resorts did upon reopening. Passes remained valid and renewable after the COVID-19 closure concluded in July 2020, although new sales were halted almost immediately upon reopening. At the time, Disney assured guests it was a “temporary” measure due to capacity restrictions at Walt Disney World.

In August 2021, Walt Disney World announced an overhaul of their pass system, replacing the four tiers introduced in 2015 with a more confusing character-based system. New passes then went on sale in September 2021, and remained on sale for nearly three months before being suspended in late November. The two middle tiers were briefly on sale last June for a single day before halting again. All four Walt Disney World Annual Passes went on sale again this year.

Beginning in April 2023, Walt Disney World Annual Passholders can visit the theme parks after 2:00 p.m. on most days without a park pass reservation. This perk does not include Magic Kingdom on Saturdays and Sundays, when a reservation will still be required.

It was recently announced that beginning next year, Walt Disney World Annual Passholders would no longer need park pass reservations for select “good-to-go” dates.
