The new annual passes are available before celebrations for Disney World’s 50th anniversary begin on Oct. 1 and last for 18 months.

Disney World has also changed its previous “FastPass” system to “Lightning Lane” and “Genie+,” which are paid alternatives to skip the lines of popular attractions.

Current tiers of annual passes will be retired Wednesday and pass holders currently using previous tiers will have to choose one of these new options upon renewal.
