    Hi! I'm a Disneyland Annual Passholder and I'm planning a trip to Walt Disney World.Are there any reliable places to buy discount tickets?Would I be able to use my Annual Pass discounts on food &shopping @WDW? Should I invest in a magic band?

    Hi, Kimberly!

    Greetings from one Disneyland Resort Annual Passholder to another! I’m so glad you stopped by with these questions, and I’m thrilled to hear you’re planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. I’m a big fan of the Disney Parks on both coasts, and I think you’ll love the excitement of exploring the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    The best, most reliable option is to purchase your theme park tickets directly from the Walt Disney Resort or your preferred travel agent. Check out the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts online. There is currently a promotion for a vacation package that includes a 4-night stay in a standard room at a select Disney Resort hotel and 4-day Magic Your Way base tickets for a special price now through August 30, 2018. There are also ticket and hotel room discounts available to active and retired U.S. military personnel.

    Just like at the Disneyland Resort, children under the age of 3 get free admission to the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, and they eat for free at all-you-care-to-enjoy dining experiences. Disney Visa Cardmembers also receive discounts at many merchandise and restaurant locations around the resort, as do Disney Vacation Club Members. Perhaps one of these offers applies to you.

    If you’re not planning to stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you can purchase a MagicBand online, from the Shop Disney Parks app, or at select shops and retail locations throughout the resort. I personally love the convenience of using a MagicBand, especially for longer visits. Plus, they make fun souvenirs and can be used on future Walt Disney World Resort vacations!

    Please feel free to ask me any other questions you may have as your pixie-dusted planning continues, Kimberly!

    Wishing you magic,
