Today, Disney sent out an email to the Platinum Plus Annual Passholders for Walt Disney World Resort:
As some of our most loyal and passionate Guests, we thank you for being part of the Annual Passholder family. We truly appreciate your patience over the past several months as we took the necessary steps to responsibly reopen our Theme Parks.
We want to let you know that due to the current closure of Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, we will be automatically issuing Platinum Plus Annual Passholders with water park access a partial refund.
This refund amount is based on the price difference between the price you paid for your Platinum Plus Pass and the price of a Platinum Annual Pass prorated by the number of days left on your pass prior to Water Park reopening. You can learn more details as to when partial refunds apply and how they are calculated here. For those on the Annual Pass Monthly Payment program, please note you will receive a lump sum refund as noted above, however your ongoing monthly payment will not change.
Refunds to original form of payment can be expected by late October through early November. If original form of payment is not available, you should expect a check by late November. Your pass will still include admission to Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course and if Disney Water Parks and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex reopen before your pass expires, you can visit them too.
Please note, Platinum Plus renewals are not available at this time, but you will have the ability to select from a variety of passes once it’s time for your pass renewal.
From our travel partners at MEI/Mouse Fan Travel –
Water park news! Disney currently plans to reopen one of the two Disney water parks on March 7, 2021. They may adjust their proposed reopening date, and if that happens, we will let you know what to expect in a future update.
If you currently have a water park ticket or annual pass, Disney will be extending those. Connect with your @meimousefantravel advisor for further details.
Thanks again for your continued patience and understanding.
