    I am a new annual pass holder and wondered if I would be able to use my discount to purchase after hours tickets for someone else. Do I have to be present in order to do that? Or can I purchase them and put them under their names.

    Hi Elise,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am always delighted to greet a fellow Walt Disney World® Resort Annual Passholder. Welcome to the Annual Passholder family!

    We have found the benefits of being an Annual Passholder to be fantastic. According to the current Terms and Conditions, "A Pass must be used by the same person on any and all park visits and benefit redemptions with the Pass. Further identification may be required." I did call to confirm with a cast member - you may use your Annual Pass to purchase up to three additional Special Event Tickets but you must be present with those guests and have your Annual Pass and identification ready.

    My family just enjoyed an After Hours event for Disney Vacation Club members last year and we had a great time. As you continue planning, have you considered a staycation? When we are not using our DVC membership for our resort hotel stay, we have appreciated the Annual Passholder discounts that have been offered on resort hotel rooms. We always check the Special Offers page. There is a current Special Offer for Annual Passholders - check the details of the offer to see eligibility terms and conditions.

    Elise, I am so excited for you to experience all of the benefits of having an Annual Pass! We are now much better at remembering to use our Annual Pass discount on merchandise, dining, and special experiences than we were when we first became passholders. Make sure that your Annual Pass is linked in your My Disney Experience account, and you are logged into that account to see your applicable Annual Passholder discounts when purchasing Special Event Tickets. Be sure to check all of your passholder benefits as you prepare for future visits!

    Magic and memories,
