    I have been told that I'd you renew your annual pass before it expires you get a discount. Can you tell me about that? If not do you still have to have the same amount down? Can you upgrade?

    Hi Rosalind,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks so much for stopping by with your question.

    Yes, if you renew your Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass, you do indeed get a discount! You can upgrade or downgrade your Annual Pass when you renew and you still get the renewal price on your pass, whichever pass you choose.  Even better, once you've had your pass for one year, you no longer have to pay a deposit.  Renewals are done with equal payments throughout the year.

    Naturally, I don't have to mention, some of the best things about having an Annual Pass (aside from park admission, park hopping and the super cute magnets available throughout the year) are free theme park parking, discounts at select restaurants, discounts on select merchandise, and occasional Passholder events and merchandise throughout the year!

    Rosalind, I hope your Walt Disney World Annual Pass brings you another year of memories and fun adventures.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
