    Hi, I am looking to get passes soon for me and my child I am thinking about the silver passes .But can I use them for early admission when the park opens early or stays open late. Thank You

    Hi, Teresa! Thanks so much for stopping by with your question. I notice from your signature that you are from Hawaii. Currently, only residents of Florida are able to purchase the Silver Annual Pass. This pass includes admission to all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks (subject to blackout days), standard parking at all four theme parks, the ability to hop from park to park with the Park Hopper option, and unlimited downloads of photos taken by Disney's PhotoPass service for the duration of the annual pass. However, this pass does not include early or late admission to theme parks, known as Extra Magic Hours, as this is a benefit of Guests staying in one of the Resort hotels. Each day, one or more of the Resort theme parks will open an hour early or stay open two hours late, which tends to be a great time for Resort hotel Guests to hop on their favorite attractions with lower waits. If you are staying in one of the Resort hotels as an Annual Passholder, then yes, your Annual Pass will afford you admission to the designated Extra Magic Hour park of the day.

    Teresa, if you are still residing in Hawaii, then you have three types of Annual Passes available to you - the Platinum Annual Pass, the Platinum Plus Annual Pass, and the Water Parks Annual Pass. If you do hold Florida residency, be sure to bring along one of the accepted proofs of residency when purchasing or picking up your Silver Annual Pass. I hope this information helps you in planning your visit. Please stop by again if you have any further questions.
