New Disney World passholder card gets you into parks faster



Getting into Walt Disney World just got easier for annual passholders.

Wednesday, Disney unveiled a new card for passholders to replace their current paper passes.

The new card takes advantage of the new touch-to-enter feature Disney has been adding to the theme parks’ entrance gates.

A photo posted on the official Disney World Passholders’ Facebook account shows what appears to be a plastic card being swiped across a round sensor containing the iconic Mickey Mouse symbol.

It sure looks a lot faster than entering your pass into the ticket slot.

So, when can passholders get their new card? Right now.

Starting Wednesday, March 20 through Sunday, May 19, passholders can bring their current paper pass, along with valid ID, to the Odyssey Center at Epcot, located between Test Track and the World Showcase Mexico pavilion, to get their new card.

Disney recommended the best time to visit the Odyssey Center was Monday through Friday after noon, adding it was currently the only location at this time where passholders can exchange their passes for the new cards.

Of course, the cards must be used by the same person who originally used the paper pass, Disney noted.

Disney said it’s unveiling the cards to passholders now to give them quick and convenient access to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, which also ends May 19.
