Disney World Blockout Dates

Yes the discounts are significant and have great perks, but there are a few stipulations to these great deals. Blockout dates, the three words no one wants to hear when thinking of the magical world of Disney. Just adding it to this article makes us cringe but unfortunately with a resident pass there are times when access to the parks are limited. The blockout dates vary from pass to pass so make sure you are checking the calendar. 

Luckily,  most passes are 325 days where Florida resident pass holders have access to the parks and 175 days of access to all 4 parks on given days. 

You can also purchase Disney’s resident passes which have 0 blockout dates.
