Can I Buy A Disney World Annual Pass From The UK?

Our guide for British guests who want to buy a Walt Disney World Annual Pass from the UK.


Can I Buy A Disney World Annual Pass From The UK?


Can you buy a Walt Disney World annual pass from the UK? Yes! Brits can purchase a Walt Disney World annual pass from the UK, but it can be quite difficult.

Back in the day, it was a no-brainer to upgrade your UK-Exclusive Disney Magic Tickets to a Walt Disney World annual pass (more on that in a minute). It didn't cost much more, and you could enjoy the discounts over your entire trip! However, things are a little different now. So, we've laid out if a Walt Disney World annual pass is worth it for Brits, and how to get one if you decide it's for you.

The Walt Disney World Annual Pass Brits Can Buy


There's only one Walt Disney World annual pass Brits can buy, and that's the top-tier Disney Incredi-Pass. This gives you access to each of the four main Walt Disney World theme parks - Magic Kingdom, Animal Kingdom, Hollywood Studios, & EPCOT - with no block-out dates. Park hopping and parking is also included. The Disney Incredi-Pass costs $1,449, plus tax. If you want to add Photopass and water park access, they're both an extra $99 plus tax to add. Fully loaded, the Disney Incredi-Pass will set you back $1,647 plus tax. Depending on the exchange rate, that's around £1,350.

How To Purchase A Walt Disney World Annual Pass


The two ways Brits can purchase a Walt Disney World annual pass is at the parks when you're there, or online. However, for some reason, Walt Disney World doesn't easily allow us Brits to purchase one online. Like a few other add-ons, for example, Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party, we have to use use a VPN for these Walt Disney World bookings.

1) Online & VPN


If you're a Walt Disney World regular you've probably already heard of the term VPN. They have exploded in popularity recently in many British Disney Parks communities like ours due to some Walt Disney World add-ons being unable to be easily purchased online from the UK. (The reason for is this we can only speculate. It could be due to GDPR and the transmission of data between the UK and the US, technical limitations, or simply could just be a choice.)

What a VPN does is route your network traffic through a server in another country to make it look like you're browsing from that country. You install a VPN (on mobile or desktop) choose a server in the USA, and then click connect. You can then go to the Walt Disney World US website and purchase whatever you'd like.

Free VPN Warning: There are thousands of "Free VPNs" online and in the Apple and Android App Stores. I will personally never install or connect to any of them, but many people do. Nothing is ever free, and if you're not paying money, you're paying with your data (I would be extra careful as you're making purchases). For some people, that's fine. For others, it's safer to purchase and use a VPN from a reputable provider. They're in the business of making money, not in whatever the services are doing to monetise a free VPN service. I personally use Proton VPN due to their privacy stances, but ExpressVPN and Nord VPN are good options as well. If you're only using the VPN to make some Walt Disney World purchases the individual selling points of each VPN are largely inconsequential. Proton VPN, ExpressVPN, and Nord VPN all have 1-month plans and also come with a 30-day money-back guarantee for extra peace of mind.

2) At Walt Disney World


You can purchase a Walt Disney World annual pass in person when you arrive at Walt Disney World. However, I would not recommend you do this because annual pass availability seems to ebb and flow and there's no guarantee when you arrive they'll be selling them. You can buy them at any theme park ticket window or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs when they are available.

Upgrading your Magic Ticket


If you've purchased a 7 Or 14-Day Disney Magic Ticket you can upgrade to a Walt Disney World annual pass (something I mentioned earlier). How this works is Disney will take off the value of the 7 Or 14-Day Disney Magic Ticket from the cost of the Walt Disney World annual pass. This gives you access to the Walt Disney World annual pass (and the discounts you get) right away! You can often do this on the My Disney Experience app, or in person at any theme park ticket window or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. Although, doing that now there's a bit of a catch because it turns your dated ticket into a non-date annual pass.

Post Lockdowns - There's A Catch


There are a couple of reasons why a Walt Disney World annual pass may not be suitable for Brits if the price hasn't already scared you off, such as park reservations. Park reservations are being scrapped in 2024 for date-based tickets (including the 7 Or 14-Day Disney Magic Ticket). Sadly, Walt Disney World annual passes are not date-based tickets. And you can only have 5 Park pass reservations at a time. If you're heading to Walt Disney World for a couple of weeks, this can be a real hassle and perhaps risky if you're visiting over busy periods when the parks might be full.

Why Multiple Disney Magic Tickets Might Be Better


If you plan to spend more than 4 weeks at Walt Disney World in any year, a Walt Disney World annual pass is probably more beneficial, even with the park reservation and booking hurdles you have to go through. If you're a DVC member or regular who goes about twice a year, you might be better off buying two 14-Day Disney Magic Tickets. A Walt Disney World annual pass costs around £1,350. That's about the same as two 14-Day Disney Magic Tickets. Remember that 14-Day Disney Magic Tickets - even though compared to the Walt Disney World annual pass you don't get discounts - do include Memory Maker (Photopass) and water park access, and starting in 2024 you won't need park reservations.
