    Christina from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Do AP holders for WDW get any discounts or perks at other Disney parks or hotels/ resorts outside of WDW? Understand that it’s NOT able to be used to enter other parks and tickets for those must be bought separately. Thanks!!

    Hello there, Christina!

    I recently became an Annual Passholder, and I can’t believe how many perks there are. It’s also been exciting to follow the Disney Parks Blog to find the latest Annual Passholder news. 

    At the moment, I think one of the biggest perks for Annual Passholders is the V.I.Passholder Days occurring from May 31, 2023, to June 30, 2023. During this time, you’ll see temporary increases in merchandise discounts, food, and nonalcoholic beverage discounts, and EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival discounts. Passholders can make bonus theme park reservations during these dates that don’t count against your allotted park reservation hold for EPCOT and Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park. There are also a few Pass-holder exclusive offerings, like special food and beverage offerings at Sunshine Seasons in The Land at EPCOT and space in the pavilion to cool off for a break. Finally, there are a few Passholder-exclusive Disney PhotoPass Experiences near Journey Into Imagination with Figment at EPCOT and near the Tree of Life at Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park between Africa and Asia with Wall-E and Eve. 

    Besides the current V.I.Passholder Days, here are my top favorite Annual Passholder benefits:

    1. You can view all of the available Passholder discounts for dining, merchandise, events & entertainment, sports, recreation & spa on the Passholder Discounts website
    2. Annual Passholders with the My Disney Experience mobile app can access Disney PhotoPass Lenses. You can also make short Disney-themed video slideshows with your favorite photos to share over social media or keep to yourself.
    3. Except for Saturdays and Sundays at Magic Kingdom Park, Passholders can visit a theme park after 2:00 p.m. EST without a park reservation.

    I also recommend reviewing the Limited-Time Passholder discounts available for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, Disney After Hours events, select Disney Resort hotels, and 1-Day Water Park Tickets. 

    May the magic be with you!
