Availing of Disney World Annual Passes lowers the cost of enjoying the theme parks and allows you to spend instead on other things, like accommodation and food. Substantial discounts are given, so expect these passes to be a lot cheaper than the regularly priced Disney World tickets.
There are different kinds of Annual Passes: theme park premium, theme park regular, waterpark, Disney quest, and Pleasure Island. Here is a short guide to help you choose which Disney World Annual Pass to buy for you and your family.
Theme park premium discounts and cheap rates
This discounted ticket grants access to all of Disney World’s theme parks - Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, Animal Kingdom - everyday for one year. The holder of this annual pass can go from one Theme Park to another, even at the same day. Also, the theme park premium gives unlimited admission to the water parks - Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon - as well as Downtown Disney, Disney’s Wide World of Sports, and DisneyQuest.
While an all-day pass for Disney World can cost from $50 to a little less than $100, the theme park premium is available at a cheaper rate of $559 for 10 years old and over. For children three to nine years of age, the annual pass is priced at $493. Other passholder benefits like Theme Parking and transportation choices are also included in the package.
Theme park regular
For theme park regular customers, Disney World is open 365 days. Customers are free to roam around the four theme parks. However, unlike the theme park premium, this kind of annual pass does not give access to the water parks and other attractions in the famous theme park destination.
Since it offers less perks and privileges than park premium, the theme park regular ticket is cheaper at $434 for those who are over 10 years old. For younger children, the annual pass is $382. Parking and convenient Disney World transportation like monorails, ferryboats, and motor coaches are available for holders of the theme park regular ticket.
Disney’s Waterparks are among the most imaginative in the world. The waterpark annual pass enables its users to enjoy Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon for one whole year. Though repairs and refurbishments in the water parks are made annually, they are staggered so as to let families with tickets have at least one Waterpark experience in a year. The price for an annual pass for those who are above ten years of age is $99.95, while tickets for younger children can be availed for $80.50.
In DisneyQuest, families can enjoy indoor interactive attractions that this unique theme park offers. This area is perfect for children who are fascinated with sciences and other technologies but would also want to enjoy the company of their favorite Disney characters. A DisneyQuest annual pass for children 10 years old and above is $89 while those who are three to nine years old will pay $71.
Pleasure Island lets Disney fans dance and enjoy the night with comedy sketches and numerous Dance Clubs. Its most interesting feature is its daily New Year Eve’s. However, it is not as child-friendly as the other Disney World attractions since some of its establishments have an age limit. The Pleasure Island Annual Pass can be yours for $55.95.
