Florida Residents who have either a Disney Silver Annual Pass or a Disney Weekday Select pass are typically blocked out from visiting the parks for most of August, but Disney has very quietly pulled off a “surprise and delight” move by lifting the block out dates for the entire month as shown in the photos below!
