    I’m an annual pass holder and we are bringing my 8 year old grandson with us in June, he is not an annual pass holder but will have regular park hopper tickets. Can he visit the annual pass holder lounge with us that is open in Epcot during May and June?

    Welcome to planDisney, Cheryl! Always happy to talk with a fellow Annual Passholder about some of the perks. 

    I brought my 3-year-old nephew for a day with just the two of us at Magic Kingdom Park yesterday. I wish I got to do it more often. He was barraging his dad with all the stories of being the fastest race car driver, flying a rocket ship and hugging Minnie Mouse... all before my brother could get him in the car to go home. Those memories are priceless, and I am so glad you are gearing up to make some timeless moments with your grandson.

    This summer has lots of treats with V.I.Passholder Days running May 1 through June 26. A Passholder Lounge will open in Restaurant Marakesh in EPCOT from noon until 8 pm every day. Here you can recharge with air conditioning, snacks and water, and your phones can, too, with stations to add more juice to their batteries. This lounge is intended for Passholders. For your day with your grandson, you may want to check in at the front and ask if an exception could be made. Everyone's ability to enjoy this is based on capacity. There is no guarantee they would make an allowance, but it never hurts to ask, especially if you ask nicely. 

    Have you heard about the other special offerings for V.I.Passholder Days? My favorite Experiment 626 will be causing chaos through the galaxy when his Annual Passholder magnet becomes available. You can find the Stitch magnet in the Creations Shop in EPCOT. In honor of 626 Day, there will also be a special Stitch Cake Cone, available exclusively to Passholders at Sunshine Seasons

    What a great time to spend with your grandson! I hope your days are sprinkled with pixie dust and magic!

    Thinking of the happiest things!
