    I have two trips to Disney World planned for 2015, so I'm considering purchasing an annual pass. The website mentions discounts and other perks, but nothing specific. Any advice on trying to find information to help make my decision or based on experience?

    Hi Holly,

    How exciting to have two trips to Walt Disney World planned for 2015!  You are wise to consider purchasing an Annual Pass.  Although your mileage might vary, my determining factor between Magic Your Way theme park tickets or an Annual Pass is if I will be visiting the theme parks for 11 or more days.  I currently have an Annual Pass and have found that since having an Annual Pass I visit the theme parks more often than if I would have purchased separate Magic Your Way theme park tickets.  Since I have an Annual Pass, I now usually visit a theme park the day of arrival and departure even if it is just for a few hours because I am not concerned about using up a day from my theme park tickets. 

    The current 2015 Annual Passholder benefits are outlined in the previous link.  To view the details of each category you will need to click each one.  For example if you click on "Dining Benefits and Discounts" you will see the current benefits in that category.  The exact details of Walt Disney World Resort room discounts may not be viewable to you unless you are logged in and have an Annual Pass linked in My Disney Experience.  The room discounts will vary from season to season.

    Holly I love my Annual Pass!  If you have two separate trips you are planning, chances are the Annual Pass will provide more value to you than separate Magic Your Way theme park tickets.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  Please let us know if we can answer any further vacation planning questions.  We love to help!
