The big perk for the new Annual Pass program is the increase in park reservations. And, well, that’s about it. Otherwise, the cost has increased, and the perks have gone down. Here’s what annual passes cost when they were last on sale under the old program:

  • Disney EPCOT After 4 Pass: $309
  • Disney Weekday Select Pass: $369
  • Disney Theme Park Select Pass: $439
  • Disney Silver Pass: $539
  • Disney Gold Pass: $719
  • Disney Platinum Pass: $1,195
  • Disney Platinum Plus Pass: $1,295

It’s important to note that Disney is no longer offering comparable passes to the EPCOT After 4, Weekday Select, and Theme Park Select passes.

Further, the Platinum and Platinum Plus passes were both available to anyone, regardless of where they lived. But only the top-tier Incredi-Pass is available to those outside Florida in the new system.

When you stay on Walt Disney World Property as an Annual Passholder, you get a guaranteed park reservation. This does not count as one of your reservations through your pass. For example, if you have the Incredi-Pass with five park reservations and currently have four used up, you can book a stay at Pop Century with guaranteed park reservations and still leave that final park reservation up for grabs for another day.
