    We like to visit Walt Disney World 2 times a year. Would it be beneficial for one or both of us to become annual pass holders? When I crunched the numbers it didn't make sense for our children but it might benefit financially for rooms and tickets?

    Hi Lauretta! You are very wise to crunch those numbers to help you decide if an Annual Pass is right for you. Depending on how many days you plan to visit Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks during your vacations, I think it would be very easy to accomplish cost savings by scheduling two vacations within the span of an Annual Pass.  

    I did some number crunching myself for a recent vacation. I found the perks and discounts definitely worth the cost of purchasing an Annual Pass. In addition to Resort Hotel offers exclusively for Passholders, there are merchandise and dining discounts as well as complimentary PhotoPass downloads. The best part is, everyone in your family does not need an Annual Pass to take advantage of the benefits and discounts! In my case, I was the only person in my family with an Annual Pass. I was able to apply the dining discounts to my whole family, and I used my Annual Pass discount on all our merchandise purchases. Be sure to carry your Annual Pass card and a photo ID with you to receive your benefits. Don’t forget to look for the Annual Passholder entrances at the Theme Parks. I was able to bring my entire party with me through the tapstyles.

    Lauretta, I think you will love becoming an Annual Passholder. But be careful, you may be tempted to squeeze in a few more vacations! Please let us know if you have additional questions.
