    I am thinking about buying my family annual passes for Christmas this year. I am trying to figure out if it is worth it, what are the extra perks. Also do you know how much extra the food and wine tickets at epcot would be?

    Hi Kristina,
    Thanks for stopping by with your question. I've been a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder for several years now and there are some really great perks! First, I don't pay for parking at any of the theme parks with my annual pass. 

    Parking is just the beginning! I get a discount on purchases in most Walt Disney World shops (including Pandora and Dooney and Bourke purchases). Note that there are some stores that are excluded, so please read the fine print and always ask if the shop offers a passholder discount-most do.

    I should also mention the dining discounts, which are detailed here. There have been times when I visit the parks just to have dinner! If you will be dining a great deal, your annual pass also entitles you to a discounted Tables in Wonderland membership.

    Passholders also qualify for room discounts at certain times of year, early registration for select runDisney races, discounted tickets for Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

    Admission to the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival is included in your park admission. You may decide to partake in all the delicious and tasty offerings at the many kiosks located in the World Showcase; prices for menu items vary.

    Kristina, I hope this has helped you make your decision!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
