    If a passholder books a hotel room with their Discount but won’t be joining the rest of their party later in the week, will the other members of the party still be able to check in before the passholder gets there?

    Hi Kristen!

    Disney Annual Passholders have access to a world of magical benefits and exclusive perks designed to make visits even more special. Being a Passholder is like having a key to unlock amazing experiences and delightful surprises throughout the Disney parks.

    One of the wonderful advantages of being a Passholder is access to special discounts, including room-only discounts at select Disney Resorts Collection hotels. However, it's important to note that in order to take advantage of these special offers, the Passholder must be present at check-in. This is because the Passholder will need to present their valid Annual Pass ID to apply the discount. Therefore, if the Passholder is arriving later in the week, the rest of the party will not be able to check in using the Passholder discount until the Passholder arrives. My strong recommendation is not to book a room using a Passholder discount unless the Passholder arrives the day of check in. There are many other Special Offers that may fit your groups needs so be sure to check those out! 

    September is a fantastic time to visit, as it coincides with the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. This event offers a wide range of global cuisines, exceptional beverages, and a variety of special entertainment and activities. 

    While you plan your visit, don't forget to explore other Passholder perks, such as discounts on dining, merchandise, and special events. With so many benefits, being a Passholder truly enhances the magic of your Disney vacation.

    Enjoy your trip and I hope you make the most of the magical experiences awaiting you!
