    Is the annual pass a good deal if we plan to go twice or so? Easier with a meal plan or could we just bring our own food? We will have a 4 and 2 yr old.

    Hi Lana!

    Walt Disney World annual passes have always been the best value for us, which is why we have been Passholders for the last 10+ years.  Having the flexibility of visiting whenever we want as well as park hopping is a major perk.  Walt Disney World is celebrating it's 45th anniversary this year, so there are added benefits and discounts until September 30, 2017 which include 20% off of select dining locations (including some quick-service restaurants!) and 20% off select merchandise locations.  You can check out all of the Passholder benefits and pricing to see if it would financially benefit your family.

    We do like getting the Disney Dining Plan while on vacation, but with the added dining discount from being a Passholder, we like to use our discount and pay per meal.  You are more than welcome to bring your own drinks, food and snacks into the parks as long as the materials are not made of glass.  This is also a great way to save money while on vacation.

    Have a magical day!
