Last year, due to the ongoing pandemic, the sale of Annual Passes at Disney World was paused. Many waited anxiously for when Disney did decide to resume Annual Pass sales and that day has finally come! This morning, Guests are once again allowed to purchase an Annual Pass — though there are some pretty distinct changes.
The new Annual Passes at Walt Disney World have new names (Disney Pixie Dust Pass, Disney Pirate Pass, Disney Sorcerer Pass, and Disney Incredi Pass), new pricing, and a new logo! This morning, just as Annual Passes resumed sales, we are also seeing new signage appear at the theme parks, promoting the new logo.
Ashley Carter, a digital journalist with MyNews13, posted a photo of the new Annual Pass entrance sign at Disney’s Animal Kingdom to Twitter, writing:

If you are a valid Annual Passholder, you may enter the Park through the designated entrance, as seen in the Tweet above. The designated lines for Annual Passholders disappeared for the last few weeks, but as Disney is once again selling APs, it seems they have also brought back the special Annual Pass entrances, promoting the new logo.
Guests who wish to purchase a new Disney World Annual Pass can do so by visiting the Walt Disney World website or at Guest Services at one of the four theme parks beginning today. Guests who already have a Walt Disney World Annual Pass will not be required to select a new pass from the list of options until their old Annual Pass has expired.
It is important to remember that most Annual Passes are available only to Florida Residents. In fact, only one pass — the most expensive Incredi-Pass — is available to all out-of-state Guests. The only out-of-state Guests who have another Pass option are DVC members, who can purchase either the Incredi-Pass or the Sorcerer Pass no matter what state they live in. Florida Residents can purchase any of the four Pass types.
