What you need to know about the new Disney World annual tickets


Lake Buena Vista, Florida – If you and your family are frequent visitors to Walt Disney World in Orlando, you may have paid close attention to some of the big changes happening there. The company has unveiled many new attractions and services across its Walt Disney World properties. Just in time to celebrate the resort’s 50th anniversary.

Among the biggest changes is the way the company has restructured its annual traffic system. That’s right, the days of the old system are gone. Starting now, it takes over the company’s new annual passes.

The big question on everyone’s mind is the cost. So here’s a breakdown of all the new levels of Walt Disney World annual tickets.

class cost dedicated to
Incredi Bass $1,299 Out-of-state guests and Florida residents
Wizard’s Corridor $899 Disney Vacation Club members and Florida residents
pirate lane $699 Florida residents only
messy dust lane $399 Florida residents only

Besides park access, these passes come with various levels of perks and discounts that you can use when visiting Walt Disney World.

Let’s allay some concerns quickly, these new passes will work the same way as the previous one. You can visit the Disney theme parks in Orlando as many times as you want, but depending on the category of permits you get, there are a limited number of days available for you to go to the parks in.

For example, Incredi-Pass will have virtually no ban dates. There will be times when reservations at the parks will run out, so you may not be able to go to the park you want on the exact day you want to visit (remember that parks are no longer first-come-first-served. You have to reserve a spot in advance.) but you have approximately 365 Days to choose from to go with a First Class pass.

However, if you choose the Pixie Dust Pass, you will have much less available. With the Pixie Dust Pass, weekends and holidays are off limits, but most days of the week are available to visit as much as you want. So this level would be better for people who live near the Orlando area.

The other two levels, Pirate and Sorcerer, have much lower blocking dates, and you’ll need to head over to the Disney website to see which dates and times suit you best.

Now those prices can seem intimidating and paying it all up front can be a huge commitment that people may not be ready for. The good news is that Florida residents have the option to pay for their permits in a series of monthly payments.

Recently, the park updated its mask policy, stating that anyone over two years old, including those who have received a COVID-19 vaccine, must wear a mask at all times. The park has also updated its social distancing guidelines, asking people in parties of 10 or more to divide them into smaller groups. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP)

Here’s how that works. First, you choose the card that suits you best, based on the information above. Next, you choose the monthly payment scheme.

You will need to make an initial payment of $205, after which depending on the card you select, you will start paying for the rest of the card in monthly payments of a certain amount. Below is a breakdown of these amounts:

pass class Payment breakdown
Incredi Bass $205, then $98.21/month
Wizard’s Corridor $205, then $62.71 per month
pirate lane $205, then $44.96 per month
messy dust lane $205, then $18.33 per month

Remember now that you pay for what you get. More availability and better privileges means a higher price. $18 a month might sound great, but he might not be able to visit as much as you’d like since that ticket isn’t available primarily on the weekends.

In the end it comes down to what works for you.
