Where can I buy a Walt Disney World Annual Pass? What does an Annual Pass cost?

Summary: Walt Disney World Annual Passes may be a great deal for you and your family

If Disney seems to have become a popular vacation destination for you and your family, you might want to check out the various seasonal and annual passes available. Depending on what your family enjoys most about the parks, how many times a year you go, and how long your average stay is annual passes might save you money – especially if you’re a Florida resident.

The Florida Resident Premium Annual Pass gives lucky Orange State residents all access to every Disney park, 365 days a year, at a bargain prices of $429 for those 10 and over and $379 for ages 3-9. Park hop until your family drops: these passes include the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, and Animal Kingdom, as well as both water parks – Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon – and Pleasure Island, a Mecca of shopping and nightclubs.

Just because you don’t live in Florida doesn’t mean you can’t take advantage of annual pass prices. If your family visits Disney more than once a year, stays longer than a few days, or likes to go to more than one park per day, annual passes still may be worth looking into. You can get the same Premium Annual Pass available to Floridians for $539 for 10 years and over and $475 for those ages 3-9.

If you’re willing the water parks don’t appeal to you then check out the Theme Park Annual Pass. The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney-MGM Studios, and Animal Kingdom will be available – park hopping included for the bargain prices of $325 for everyone over 9 and $285 for kids ages 3-9 for Floridians while non-residents have to fork over $415/$365.

Seasonal passes run only $215 for 10 and over and $189 for 3-9 year olds and allow you to park hop, but high-traffic vacation periods when the kids are most likely to be out of school are blacked out.

Other, more specific passes are also available. If sun and surf is all your family is after, consider the Water Park Annual Pass. At only $99.95/$80.50 it can be a bargain if the four major theme parks are only secondary to Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon. DisneyQuest, Disney’s Indoor Interactive Theme Park offers an annual pass at $89/$71 and adults can pick up the Pleasure Island Annual Pass for only $55.95.

***And to any Florida residents out there who are thinking of making a few bucks by renting out your resident passes to your non-resident friends – think again: proof of state residency is necessary to purchase passes is also required each time you use them
