TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Walt Disney World annual passes will be available for the first time since the purchase of new passes was abruptly halted last year.

On Thursday, Disney announced that fans will be able to buy new passes on April 20.

“We are so grateful for our Passholders who have a deep, strong connection to Walt Disney World,” according to a Disney blog post. “And we are looking forward to welcoming more of you to the Annual Passholder family, just in time to experience the feelings of a Disney Thrill this spring and summer.”
