    I know as an AP holder that I can book a basic package with just a room and dining (when dining plans were available) since I am an existing ticket holder. Do you know if the same is true for those who hold ONLY Water Park Annual Passes?

    Hello Kaitlin! Thanks for floating your question by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'd be happy to assist you today.

    Duuuuude! Like Crush and Squirt, my kids and I love cruising the current Disney's Water Parks. If you spend more than a few days per year hanging ten at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park or staying cool at Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park, a Water Park Annual Pass is a fantastic value as it offers a full year of unlimited access (during normal operating hours) to both parks. 

    While theme park Annual Passholders can add a Disney Dining Plan to a room-only reservation, Guests with Water Park Annual Passes cannot. I encourage you to take a look at the Compare Passes page to view the benefits of both types of admission. If you are looking to experience the four major theme parks as well as the water parks in the same year, AND potentially add a Disney Dining Plan to your reservation, you'll want to purchase a Disney Platinum Plus Pass. This little piece of magic grants you admission to all four theme parks, both water parks, Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course, and the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Keep in mind that currently during its reopening phase, Disney has suspended Disney Dining Plan purchases. I suggest keeping an eye on the Know Before You Go information page and Disney Parks Blog as we await the return of this delicious and popular offering. 

    Kaitlin, I hope this helps you navigate admission options as you select the best choice for your family. I wish you a memorable year of visits to the Most Magical Place on Earth. If there is anything else we can do as you plan your vacations, please come back and see us again. We're happy to lend a fin.

    Just keep swimming!
