Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA and Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida recently announced their reopening plans and dates for the theme park. Along with these plans, Disney also announced quite a few changes that would take place when the Disney parks reopen in order to help keep the theme park safe.

Many of the changes occurring due to the temporary closures are affecting some of Disney’s most valued guests — Its annual passholders.

Both Walt Disney World annual passholders and Disneyland annual passport holders who have expiration dates for this summer are left wondering “Will my annual pass be good for our upcoming fall vacation?” Here is everything we know thus far.

Walt Disney World will be closed for a total of 117 days (March 16-July 11), which means all Annual Passholders who paid for their pass in full will be extended an extra 117 days from the previous expiration date. Therefore, if you have an Annual Pass that is set to expire over the summer, odds are it will be extended through the fall months just in time for your upcoming fall vacations!

For those Guests who are paying for Walt Disney World Annual Passes using the monthly payment program, Disney has stated that they “may choose to have their monthly payments postponed starting with payments due April 5, 2020 through the park closure period, and then resumed on the Passholder’s regularly scheduled payment date once the parks reopen. Postponed payments will be collected in the months following the end of the Passholder’s currently scheduled payment term. The pass will be extended the number of days the parks are closed.”

Disneyland Resort is currently suspending the renewals of Annual Passports, however, Disney has stated that for those who paid in full will have their Passport expiration dates extended. The new expiration date will be reflected on the Annual Passholder’s Passport account prior to the reopening of the theme parks.

Disneyland will be closed for a total of 125 days (March 14-July 17), which means all Annual Passports will be extended an extra 125 days from the previous expiration date. Therefore, if you have an Annual Passport that is set to expire over the summer, odds are it will be extended through the fall months just in time for your upcoming fall vacations!
