    If I have an annual pass do my friends and family, have to purchase park tickets in order to get home

    Hi Charlotte, welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like you’re planning a visit to Walt Disney World Resort with your friends and family soon! With your Annual Pass, you can have a year full of magical Walt Disney World visits and it’s great that you want to share that magic with others. 

    Walt Disney World Annual Passes are valid for one Guest and may not be transferred. Walt Disney World Resort currently requires Theme Park Reservations, so you will still need to make a theme park reservation prior to your visit. If you plan on visiting with family and friends, they will need to purchase theme park tickets for the number of days they plan on entering the theme parks, as well as make theme park reservations. 

    There are a variety of theme park ticket options available to fit your visit. You can purchase standard date-based tickets which will allow your friends to visit one theme park per day or add on the Park Hopper Option which allows the ticket holder to park hop to another theme park after 2:00 PM. 

    Your friends and family can also add the Water Park and Sports option, which includes a visit to one theme park per day, along with a certain number of visits to a water park, or other activities such as miniature golf or Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course. The Park Hopper Plus option includes the previously mentioned activities as well as the ability to park hop after 2:00 PM. 

    Don’t forget about all the fun you can have outside the theme parks, Charlotte. Check out this episode of the planDisney Podcast which details many of the activities available throughout Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I hope this was helpful, Charlotte. If I misunderstood your question, please reach out to me again at planDisney and I’d love to help you further!

    Reach out and find your happily ever after,
