For many, including myself, it has long made sense to utilize an annual pass as a Disney Vacation Club owner choosing to visit the parks multiple times per year. As the dust settles on recently announced AP pricing increases, however, many may be reconsidering this option for their future Walt Disney World vacations.
Effective Tuesday, June 18th annual pass prices for DVC members have increased to the following:
- Disney Platinum Plus Pass – $999.00 (Increase of $150)
- Disney Platinum Pass – $899.00 (Increase of $150)
- Disney Gold Pass – $699.00 (Increase of $90)
Note that all discounted pricing listed above is only available to Direct owners with a valid blue membership card. Resale owners can still purchase Platinum Plus and Platinum AP’s, however this will be at an increased rate of $1,219 and $1,119 respectively, accounting for an increase of $225.
For my family these changes will not directly effect our plans but stings a little nonetheless. Share in the comments below whether this increase will change your DVC or ticket purchasing plans for the coming year!
