    3. 2024 Incredi Pass Blockout Dates (All Parks)

    There are no Blockout Dates for Incredi Pass Holders and no restrictions as to who can purchase this Annual Pass (Being a FL resident is not required).

    Which Disney World Annual Pass is the Best Value?

    In our opinion, the Pirate Pass provides the best value for the average visitor as it grants you access to the park for almost the entire month (minus a few days) on most weekends and weekdays, and the larger amount of Blockout Dates don't begin place until November.

    Another great value option (at a higher cost), is the Sorcerer Pass as it dramatically reduces the number of Blockout Dates for the year, only having Blockout Dates during 2 months, at the end of November and December.

    If you're unsure which Annual Pass to purchase, we'd recommend initially purchasing the cheaper pass, as you can always upgrade to a higher tier at the park, by paying the difference in cost between the passes.

    However, you can't downgrade an active Annual Pass.

    What Are Disney Blockout Dates?

    Disney's Blockout Dates mean that you can visit the park on any date, outside of those specific (blockout) dates. 

    Blockout Dates can appear on both daily admission tickets and Annual Passes, with its main purpose being to help keep the expected crowd levels under capacity through the busier seasons.

    In general, the cheaper the ticket, the more Blockout Dates will be on it.

    The Standard ticket 1-day tickets and lower tier Annual Passes will have Blockout Dates in their terms of service.

    It's also important to know that for Disney Annual Passes, you must reserve the day that you will visit ahead of time.

    For every date of the year, the Disney Calendar will show if the date is blocked out, if no reservations are available, or if reservations are available, depending on which pass view you select to view from.
