Changes in Park Pass Requirements for Annual Passholders

Related Articles

Pass park requirements are changing for the Annual Passholders in 2023. So, here is an update you cannot skip.

Over the past two years, there have been so many changes in Disney World rules that frequent visitors want to know what is next. One of the massive changes would include Bog Iger’s return as Disney World’s CEO. Due to this, we knew that there would be significant changes to anticipate.

If you rooted for Bob Iger to come back, you would be happy with the latest announcement. The Park Reservation system will soon relax for Annual Passholders. While you still need a Park Pass reservation right now, and there are limited passes to grab for Annual Passholders, this is set to change.

Park Pass requirements for Annual Passholders in 2023

For the first few months in 2023, annual passholders do not need a park pass if visiting post 2 pm. This includes all theme parks except Magic Kingdom on weekends.

Disney introduced park pass reservations to minimize crowds and manage the park better. So, they won’t abolish the idea altogether. However, easing the process for frequent visitors can help them make the most use of the weekdays. Moreover, park blockout days will continue.

Annual passholders will now have access to Disney PhotoPass lenses and a free experience of the Cinderella Castle Mural of Memories.

What’s new in Disney World?

There is a lot lined up for Disney World in 2023, so keep those in mind when planning to come:

  • The Tron Lightcycle rollercoaster is all set to begin operations on April 4
  • Wait times are comparatively low post-holiday season
  • Disney Enchantment fireworks introduced during 50th-anniversary celebrations are all set to end post-April 2
  • Harmonious will end on April 2, so if you haven’t seen the performance yet, it is about time
  • EPCOT Forever is officially coming back on April 3

Final thoughts

There are going to be a lot of changes in Disney World post-March 2023. If you’ve still not experienced the magic of the 50th-anniversary celebrations, it is time to book tickets.
