Columnist wants Disney fans in Texas to know they can get Annual Passes too!

A contributor for the Click2Houston website at KPRC News took time from her busy schedule to pen a post, assuring any Disney World fans living in the Lone Star State that Disney hasn’t left them out of the new Annual Pass program the park unveiled in late August.

Briana Edwards, the author of the post, was careful to outline all four passes now offered at Disney World as part of the revamped Annual Passholder program.

Passes were first made available for purchase yesterday, and the internet was abuzz with Guests who were excited to finally have one in their hands, like this man, who knows exactly how he’ll be spending his time now that he has his pass.

Some fans had plans for immediate use of their new-found treasure. @NekuraTargaryen says he’s going to be doing a lot more vlogging, thanks to the annual pass he just scored.

(Wow, it’s good for 78 years!)

Another Disney fan, who says a man just bought an annual pass one for her, isn’t complaining.

This fan was lucky enough to buy an annual pass for her husband that’s also good for 78 years! Oh, technology, how we love thy glitches!

And for everything that could be said in a tweet, this user’s words are more of what we need to be hearing today. She doesn’t care for Mr. Chapek, mind you, but she’s ecstatic for those who got their passes. Thanks, @DisKneeNerd!

Who would have thought a Houston, Texas-based news channel would report on the Disney World Annual Pass Program? You might be surprised to know how many Texans (and other out-of-towners) make the trip to the parks, many who–believe it or not–are not always aware that an annual pass is available to them.

After all, who’s going to use an annual pass when they live so far away?

Some of us come 900 miles to see Mickey, and others come more than 1700 miles–and every distance in between.

Yes, you can start out in Texas, drive 800 miles and still be in Texas in some spots. It’s a big place out here.

If you, like we Texans, don’t live in the Sunshine State, Disney’s new Incredi-Pass is for you. It’s the only one offered to non-Florida residents, and it functions a lot like the Platinum Pass in the old annual pass program. The difference is in the price and in the fact that PhotoPass is not part of the pass.

Do you have your annual pass yet? Are you planning to get one, or have you decided to skip yours this time? We’d love to hear from you!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
