    We are traveling to Disney World for the holidays with another family we are friends with. We have annual passes - they don't. Can they still go through the passholder line with us at the entrance?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle!

    How wonderful that you’re planning to spend the holidays at the Walt Disney World Resort, and how extra-special that you’re going to share those magical memories with your friends and their family. There is so much holiday magic in the air all around the theme parks, resorts, and Disney Springs, and you are all going to have so much festive fun.

    In my experience, yes, you will be able to bring members of your party who don’t have Annual Passes through the Annual Passholder line at the theme park entrances. Last year, I had an annual pass and my husband and Mouseketeers didn’t, and we had no problem going through the queue together. Just be aware that, during the busy holiday season, it’s at the discretion of the Cast Members, so your experience may be different.

    Also, keep in mind that the Annual Passholder line is not always shorter than the regular admission queues. My family members liked to race me to see who could get through first, and on more than one occasion, they got through faster than me when I was in the Passholder queue. It’s a great option to have, but just remember it may not always be the fastest.

    There are often great Passholder perks during the holidays, so keep an eye on the Passholder Extras web page. Last holiday season, I got an adorable holiday-themed Passholder magnet, and the Passholder-exclusive merchandise for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party and the Epcot International Festival of the Holidays is always so cute!

    Enjoy your time together at the most wonderful time of the year at The Most Magical Place on Earth, Michelle! Be sure to read the Disney Parks Blog for all the holiday news as you count down to your visit, and please come back and see us if we can help with any more questions.

    Wishing you a merry and magical vacation,
