Disney’s annual shareholders meeting was held in San Antonio, TX this morning. A few interesting surprises were unveiled at the meeting.
Going on a suggestions from last year’s shareholders meeting, Disney C.E.O. Robert Iger announced the creation of the ‘Disney Premier Passport’. The new passport goes on sale tomorrow and will cost $700.00 The passport gives the bearer unlimited admission at all U.S. Disney parks in Anaheim, CA and Orlando, FL with no blackout dates. Anyone buying today’s equivalent annual pass for Disney parks in CA and FL would be paying about $1058.00 for the 2 separate unlimited passes.
There’s also some parking perks and a few other bonuses involved. The full list of benefits is below:
At Walt Disney World:
- Unlimited admission for a period of one year to all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks, including the ability to visit multiple parks on the same day.
- Unlimited admission to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach Water Parks
- Unlimited admission to DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex(valid only on event days; some events require an additional admission charge) and Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course (greens fee only. Tee time reservations are required and subject to availability)

If you’re already holding a Premium Annual Pass for both Resorts, you’ll automatically be issued a “Disney Premier Passport” – with an expiration date based on the later of the two annual passes. You may also upgrade your annual or seasonal pass for one resort to a “Disney Premier Passport” for an additional fee.
The Passport will be available for sale at the Disneyland Resort box office and Walt Disney World Guest Relations windows beginning tomorrow.
