There will be an annual pass available for Disney World and Disneyland. Wow. Who would go to BOTH parks enough times in one year for it to be worth the price? Grandparents with grandkids on both coasts? Jet-setters?
Will Disney World passholders be able to pay in monthly installments?
Could it be true? Are Walt Disney World passholders finally going to be offered a payment plan?
Dedicated Disney-goers have been lamenting the inability to finance such a large entertainment purchase ever since neighboring Universal Studios and SeaWorld implemented their monthly options.
The folks at MousePlanet.com say Disney World will announce next week that the plan first offered to Disneyland annual passholders in 2008 will be brought to Orlando this summer, according to their WDW sources.
The Disneyland version requires visitors to make a deposit equal to the cost of a one-day, one-park ticket and the remaining monthly payments then are automatically charged to a credit card that is kept on file. The Disney World version is expected to be open to all Florida residents, MousePlanet.com reports.
Another annual pass option is also in the works, MiceChat.com says. The Domestic Parks Pass, an annual pass good for both Disney World and Disneyland, is expected to be announced next week, too, and will be priced in the $800 range.
