    Hi, I was wondering if I am able to share my AP discount, on merchandise, if I am shopping with family members who do not have Annual Passes.

    Hi Jennifer!

    Welcome back to planDisney! How exciting that you will be returning to the Walt Disney World Resort this autumn. Fall is one of my favorite times to visit. The temperatures are still warm enough to plan a pool day, but more comfortable than the heat of summer. By the end of November, most of the winter holiday decorations will be up, and it truly is the most magical time of the year.

    With your Walt Disney World Annual Pass, you’ll be ready to load up on all the newest holiday goodies with your Annual Pass merchandise discount! You cannot give your Annual Passholder Card to a family member to use. You as the Passholder must be present, and you must be able to show matching photo identification to receive any promotions or discounts. In my personal experience as an Annual Passholder, as long as I have been present and able to show my Annual Pass and ID at the time of purchase, I have been able to use my discount when paying for merchandise with my MagicBand or credit card, cash, or my family member’s MagicBand or credit card. If a Cast Member asked you as the Passholder to use your own method of payment, you could always make the purchase and your family member could reimburse you later.

    Be sure to check out the Walt Disney World Passholder Program so you are up-to-date on all the latest discounts and benefits you may be able to take advantage of on your visit, Jennifer! And please let us know if you have any additional questions before your trip!
