    I live in the UK and am planning a trip to Disney Florida. We are staying off park so will be needing parking. I have seen an annual pass, could we purchase this for just one member of the group to benefit from the free parking and discounts?

    Hi Julia,

    You are one smart cookie! Yes, you can purchase an Annual Pass for just one member of your group and still enjoy all the benefits and discounts associated with that pass. (I have done this with my family.) For instance, if you are driving to a Disney theme park, only one person in the car needs to present an Annual Pass to receive free parking. I recommend that you purchase the pass for the driver of your vehicle or the person who is likely to do most of the shopping while on vacation. Only the person whose name appears on the Annual Pass will get the merchandise discount at the register.

    And don't forget that Annual Passholders get free PhotoPass downloads too. Just be sure that everyone traveling with you is linked to your Family & Friends list on My Disney Experience. Then every time one of them scans their MagicBand with a PhotoPass photographer during your trip, those photos will be available to you for no charge. It's a pretty awesome deal. One time I traveled as a chaperone with a dozen high school students. They were all linked to me in My Disney Experience so literally hundreds of photos showed up in my account. We had a whole scrapbook of complimentary pictures to remind us of our fabulous vacation.

    If you decide to become an Annual Passholder at Walt Disney World Resort, I'm sure you'll enjoy all the benefits that come with your Annual Pass.

    Wishing you many magical memories on your upcoming trip,
