Now that Annual Pass sales are set to return on April 20th, and have already returned for eligible DVC members, Disney has announced that they will be offering bonus Park Pass reservations to passholders for the weekends in both April & May. Let’s unpack all the details of what is being offered.
Bonus Park Pass Reservation Details
Annual Passholders have a special treat for the next 7 weekends! Disney is offering Bonus Reservations, which don’t count towards your usual reservation limit. That means Sorcerer or Incredi-Pass passholders can make up to 5 regular park reservations, plus take advantage of additional days with the bonus reservations that won’t count towards their total reservation limit.
These bonus park pass reservations will be on Saturdays and Sundays between April 15th to May 28th, 2023 and will apply to reservations made at both EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Discover The Benefits Of Annual Passes
Starting April 18th, you can enter the Walt Disney World theme parks after 2:00pm without needing a Park Pass reservation – except for Magic Kingdom on Saturdays and Sundays. This upcoming change should allow you to plan your next adventure sooner with this extra bit of flexibility.
Also, Annual Passholders will continue to enjoy a wide variety of discounts on dining, merchandise, events, entertainment, and recreational activities throughout Walt Disney World.
Historically, Disney has allowed Annual Passholders the ability to preview certain upcoming attractions, such as the recently launched TRON: Lightcycle / Run in Magic Kingdom, and Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind in EPCOT. If history is any indicator, Disney will continue this trend, and allow annual passholders the ability to preview upcoming Disney attractions. With the highly-anticipated Journey of Water set to debut in EPCOT this fall, it’s an exciting time to be an annual passholder!
