Walt Disney World annual passes to be extended due to Coronavirus

The spread of Coronavirus has forced Disney to close all of its theme parks and suspend itineraries on Disney Cruise Line. The closures understandably created plenty of questions, including how Disney will handle guests who have annual passes at Walt Disney World.

Disney has released a new page on their website that aims to address the most common questions surrounding the closures, including ticket refunds, annual passes and resort reservations.

As of the date of this article, Disney has the following statement regarding annual passes:

Walt Disney World annual passes will be extended by the number of days the parks are closed, March 16, 2020 through March 31, 2020.

Currently, Disney has only announced a closure lasting through the end of March. However, Disney will reassess the situation as we get closer to the end of the month. It’s very possible the closures will be extended further depending on the spread of the virus.

All of that being said, Disney has now set a precedent for how it plans to handle annual passes during these strange times. Guests should expect additional days to be added to their passes that are equivalent to the total number of days the parks are closed.
