    We have a reservation for November but are considering squeezing in a Sept. trip for adults prior to 1st trip with grandkids. Will an Annual pass cover both trips to WDW? Does the annual pass offer any benefits on the Disney Cruise?

    Hi, Gary!

    Your Annual Pass is good for 365 days from the date of its first use. If you plan to use it for the first time in September, 2016, it will be valid through the same date in September of 2017.

    While the Walt Disney World Annual Pass does not offer any discounts for DCL, there are many benefits that come with the Pass:  shopping discounts, select dining location discounts, room only discounts during different times of the year, and more.

    I am a frequent visitor to both WDW and DCL, so I like to add a day or two in the parks before or after my cruise. With my Annual Pass, it is nice to not have to worry about my theme park tickets. My Annual Pass is active and ready to go!

    I hope you get to make some wonderful memories with your grandchildren when you visit Walt Disney World! Read through this Grandparents Guide that might offer some great tips to make your vacation even more magical.

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
