New annual passes 9/8

I haven’t had a chance to peruse the internet this morning, but the recording when you call DVC Member Services was updated to say “new annual pass sales will resume September 8th” this morning.

The character dining options that ARE returning will be Tusker House and dinner at Chef Mickey’s. https://jilteddisneybride.com/2021/05/06/cape-may-cafe-and-tusker-house-heck-yea/ Cape May Cafe reopened today, but without characters for the time being. No announcement on when the characters will return. It is of course much [...]
