Effective immediately, Disney has increased the price of all 4 varieties of Annual Passes that it sells for its theme parks. The increases range from about 3% on the two most expensive passes to 6-10% on lower-priced tickets available only to Florida residents. 

  • Incredi-Pass: $1449 (previously $1399)
  • Sorcerer Pass: $999 (previously $969)
  • Pirate Pass: $799 (previously $749)
  • Pixie Dust Pass: $439 (previously $399)

The Sorcerer Pass is available only to Florida residents and Disney Vacation Club members who qualify for Membership Extras. Owners must have at least 150 points purchased direct from DVC--or grandfathered under prior terms--in order to buy the lower-priced pass. The Sorcerer Pass offers more than 340 days of access to the Florida theme parks, with select blockout dates currently positioned around Thanksgiving and Christmas.  

The Incredi-Pass is available to all guests, offering year-round admission to all 4 parks. The Pirate and Pixie Dust Passes are limited to Florida residents, and contain a variety of blockout dates. 

Annual Passholders receive a discount of approximately 15% off the above rates when renewing a pass. 

Disney famously paused sales of Annual Passes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sales resumed in April 2023, with Disney refusing to comment on whether pass sales may be paused again due to high demand. Thus far, there has not been a halt in sales of either the Sorcerer or Incred-Pass.

Disney has publicly committed to spending $60 billion on enhancements to its theme parks over the next 10 years, nearly doubling its investment over the last 10. At a recent fan event, Walt Disney World leaders discussed plans for a massive expansion of Magic Kingdom and overhaul of the Dinloand area of Disney's Animal Kingdom.  However, those projects are still in conceptual stages with no word on projected start date or opening date.
