    We have booked our Disney vacation for the end of May 2018. I am tossing around the idea of annual passes. If I purchase annual passes would we get a discount on the hotel we have already booked? (Pop). That may be a deciding factor. Thank you!

    Hello Carrie! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    One of the major factors in my deciding to become a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder (aside from my constant visits) was the cost-effective value of booking Resort Hotels with the Special Offers afforded to Annual Passholders.

    The good news is that you can book a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room and then retroactively have a previous Reservation modified or rebooked to take advantage of a Special Offer as an Annual Passholder. The catch is that you will have to have the Annual Pass activated at one of the Main Ticket Gates at one of the 4 Theme Parks or Disney Springs Guest Relations before you Check-In for said Reservation.

    Additionally, I encourage you to check the availability for any Special Offers before purchasing your Annual Pass through the Walt Disney World Resort site or by speaking with a Cast Member at (407)939-1936. Special Offers are offered in limited quantities and having the Annual Pass will not grant you the Special Offer price if it has sold out or is not available for your particular Resort Hotel.

    If you do decide on becoming a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder, remember to look into all of the additional discounts and benefits available to you during your vacation.

    Good Luck!
