Walt Disney World has begun emailing Annual Passholders who have chosen to extend their Annual Passes during this unprecedented time of park closures.
According to the email, APs must finalize and confirm their pass extensions, even if they were already applied to their My Disney Experience accounts.
Below is the full email (which includes instructions). Note that this email was shared with Inside the Magic, as not every AP has received it yet.
Dear Valued Passholder,
Thank you for deciding to extend your annual pass(es) by the amount of time the Walt Disney World theme parks were closed.
To finalize this extension and confirm your new schedule of payments, please review and sign the amendment to your Annual Pass monthly payment agreement by following these three steps:
Step 1: Link your Annual Pass to your Disney account in MyDisneyExperience if you have not done so already.
Step 2: Click here to consent to the use of an electronic signature.
Step 3: Follow the instructions after providing this consent to sign your amendment and finalize your extension.
Note that this pass extension may already be reflected in your MyDisneyExperience account. Please sign the amendment using the steps above by November 1, 2020, or this pass extension will be canceled. If you need any assistance, please call (888) – 701 – 4100.
Thank you for being a valued Passholder and we look forward to seeing you back at the Walt Disney World resort soon!
Walt Disney World announced back in July that they would be giving all Annual Passes one-month extensions, saying that it would be visible in My Disney Experience accounts in October 2020.
However, Disney also gave Passholders the following options for extending their APs for the duration of the park closure. That is what the email above is referring to.
If you are an Annual Passholder who has paid in full:
All active Walt Disney World Resort theme park and water park Annual Passes will be extended for the number of days the parks are closed. The new expiration date will be reflected on the Annual Passholder’s account prior to the reopening of the parks.
If you are an Annual Passholder on the monthly payment plan:
On April 5, 2020, we automatically stopped and will waive monthly payments due while the theme parks are closed. We will also retroactively refund payments made between March 14 through April 4, 2020. Payments will resume on the Passholder’s regularly scheduled payment dates once the parks reopen. Please note, pass expiration dates will not be extended and passes will expire upon their originally scheduled expiration dates.
Did you opt to receive an extension to your Walt Disney World Annual Pass, or have you since canceled your AP? Let us know in the comments.
