If you plan on an extended stay in Florida or you live in Florida, then an annual pass to Walt Disney World makes good economic sense and most passes give you added benefits such as complimentary standard parking, park hopping and discounts on some dining and merchandise.

Passes can be renewed on an annual basis on or before the expiry date and it costs about 10% less than the first time purchase price when you renew.

As well as the passes described below, Florida residents are also able to buy special Florida residents annual passes which are cheaper than the Platinum passes but have restrictions such as blackout dates especially during the busier periods.

Anyone (US or international) can buy either of the two Platinum passes but only US residents can buy the Premier Passport that gives you one year’s access to both Walt Disney World and the two Disney parks in California.


Walt Disney World annual pass ticket options are:

  • a Disney Premier Passport giving unlimited access to Disney’s parks in both Florida and California; i.e. Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom plus Disney’s water parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon), Disney’s Oak Trail golf course (green fees) and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex plus the Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park for a whole year
  • a Disney Platinum Plus Pass giving unlimited access to Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom plus Disney’s water parks (Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon), Disney’s Oak Trail golf course, DisneyQuest and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex for a whole year
  • a Disney Platinum Pass giving unlimited access to Disney’s Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom for a whole year
  • a Water Park Annual Pass giving unlimited access to both Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon water park for a whole year
