    My family members are currently Passholders with the Water Park Option. While we love the Water Parks, we do not plan on visiting them during the next year. Will we be able to renew our APs without that Option?

    Welcome to planDisney, Bill!

    I love to hear that your family enjoyed the year splashing away at the Disney Water Parks. I’ve considered adding the Water Park and Sports Option every year that I’ve been an Annual Passholder, but because I “live” at the theme parks, I end up opting out. One day, Bill, one day! 

    I have good news for you: When you renew your Walt Disney World annual pass, using the “Manage Annual Passes” desktop webpage, you’ll see that your current annual passes are shown. If you have Florida residency, there is a dropdown box for you to choose which annual pass type you want for your next year. There are also two checkboxes where you can select the Water Park and Sports Option and Disney PhotoPass Downloads add-ons. So, it will essentially start you at your ticket’s base and then you can build from there. 

    By the way, as long as your family visits the theme parks together, you should have no problem only having one person in your party having the unlimited Disney PhotoPass Downloads option. I’m always sure to scan my MagicBand+ after a friendly Cast Member takes our photos. But, as you know, you all need the Water Park and Sports Option if you all do decide to take the dive back into the worlds of Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon and Disney’s Blizzard Beach. 

    I hope that this helps, Bill. Feel free to revisit us here at planDisney if you have any Disney vacation planning questions. Just keep swimmin’!

    Magic always,
