    We are annual pass holders and have booked a room only reservation for April 2018. When can we expect the discounts for that time to be announced?

    Greetings, fellow Annual Passholder! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michele. Don't you just love the perks that come along with having the most magical pass on earth? I have throughly enjoyed the upgraded dining and merchandise discounts. My favorite perk of all.....the great rates Annual Passholders receive on room-only resort reservations. I scored a fantastic rate at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa last August when a last-minute vacation left me unable to book a resort through my Disney Vacation Club Membership. 

    In general, Special Offers for Annual Passholder room-only reservations are released three months out, so for an April, 2018 visit, you can expect to start seeing offers released in January. The best thing to do to ensure you don't miss out on any special promotions is to keep on eye on the Special Offers Tab on the Walt Disney World® Resort website. That tab is your link to the savings! 

    You have also made a wise decision in already having your room booked. This will allow you to make all your Advanced Dining Reservations at the 180 day mark. Once a promotion is released, you can call to have your current reservation modified, or changed, to reflect the new pricing. 

    I hope this is helpful, Michele! Let me know if you have any additional questions. As a Annual Passholder myself, I love helping guests understand all their benefits. 

    Here is a list of upgraded benefits available to Passholders in celebration of Walt Disney World® Resort's 45th anniversary. Who doesn't love a little bit of extra pixie-dust. Select the highlighted link to check it out. 

    Happy planning,
