For fans of Walt Disney World Resort, nothing is more coveted than the famed Annual Pass. Not only does a Disney World Annual Pass guarantee more regular access to the theme parks, but it also comes with lots of discounts and other privileges.

However, many of the seasoned veterans of the Annual Passholder game have said that they’re no longer interested in paying for an Annual Pass, especially due to price raises.

One fan, in particular, took to social media to publicly announce that they were letting their Annual Pass expire:

After 10 years of being a passholder, this was the last picture I took of Cinderella Castle before my pass expired.

In Walt Disney World history, Annual Passes have only sold out once: when they were reintroduced after the Covid-19 pandemic in 2021.

A Cast Member recently informed us that those passes only lasted for about a month before selling out, leaving nothing but the Disney Pixie Dust Pass.
