Sales for a few annual Walt Disney World passes will soon start back up.
Come April 20, three annual pass options – the Disney Pirate Pass, Sorcerer Pass and Incredi-Pass – will again be offered for eligible individuals to buy online, according to a Walt Disney World blog post on Thursday. That, Disney said, will be preceded on April 13 by online sales of Disney Vacation Club Sorcerer Passes for certain members “as part of [their] Membership Magic benefits.”
The price will depend on the type of pass, with the Pirate one costing the least of the three resuming sales in two weeks at $749, and the Incredi-Pass costing the most at $1,399, according to the Disney World website. The company will charge $969 for a Sorcerer Pass.
They have varying benefits, and who can buy each type of annual pass also differs.

“Please know, as we look to provide a great experience for our Passholders, the quantity of the passes will be limited and passes, or a pass type, may become unavailable for purchase at any time,” Disney said in the blog post announcing the new sales.
During Disney’s shareholder meeting earlier in the week, CEO Bob Iger said the company is “currently planning” to invest more than $17 billion in the Florida park. That investment will span a decade, generating an estimated 13,000 new Disney jobs, according to the CEO.
