    If we booked a reservation at a resort with our annual passholder discount but when the event happens we will no longer be passholders.. What happens then?

    Hello Nykky! 

    So, you've been enjoying the perks of being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder and soaking up the Florida Resident goodness. From discounted surrey bike rides at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort to the joy of saving on merchandise at shops like World Of Disney at Disney Springs, it sounds like you've been living the best Annual Passholder life.

    Now, let's talk about your reservation puzzle. If your Annual Pass decides to take a break and expires before the big event, you’ll likely need to re-think your Disney Resort Collections hotel reservation. According to the mystical Disney language, "Passholder must present a valid Walt Disney World Annual Pass at check-in." If your Annual Pass isn’t active anymore at the time of check-in, you won’t be able to check in with that special passholder rate. 

    So here are some options for you:

    You first could summon the magic to renew your Annual Pass for more enchanting adventures. If you don’t want to renew, you could book the Resort hotel room at the standard rate—no discount, but still a fairy-tale stay. The third option, you can explore other Special Offers that might add a sprinkle of pixie dust to your reservation.

    May your day be as enchanting as a ride on the Mad Tea Party, spinning teacups!
