    Hi moms! I want to buy an AP for myself, but can I use it on a trip when going with others in the same package? Like just adding their tickets, and possibly dining? Would I be able to book everything the same, like fastpasses? Thanks! :-)

    Hi Todd,

    Hooray for you!  I think Annual Passes are a great investment if you will be visiting Walt Disney World for more than 11 days within a 12 month time period.  With an Annual Pass you are also eligible for special offers, discount on select merchandise, eligible to purchase Tables In Wonderland card, and many more benefits.

    Unfortunately if you intend to purchase a vacation package with theme park tickets and the Disney Dining Plan, all Guests on that reservation must have the same selections.  However I do have a suggestion for you if you haven't purchased your Annual Pass yet.  First you can make a reservation for a vacation package for your entire party that includes Disney Resort hotel room, theme park tickets, and Disney Dining Plan.  Then once you are at Walt Disney World you may choose to upgrade only your theme park ticket to an Annual Pass provided you are within 14 days of its first use and it still has 1 day left on it.  You can upgrade your theme park ticket to an Annual Pass at any of the ticket windows at the entrances to the theme parks.

    My husband and I recently upgraded our theme park tickets to Annual Passes but the other people in our vacation package reservation did not.  We paid the difference between the current listed price of our tickets and an Annual Pass.

    I hope this information helps you with making your vacation plans Todd!  Please let us know if you have any further questions, we are always happy to help you plan your next MAGICAL Walt Disney World vacation.
