Getting your Annual Passholder discounts in Disney World is a little DIFFERENT these days.
Annual Passholders can generally get discounts of up to 20% on dining, merchandise, and certain activities. If you’re a Passholder, you may have been used to showing your physical Annual Passholder card to get those discounts while shopping in the parks, but now things have CHANGED.
Annual Passholders are now required to show a form of identification along with the portion of the My Disney Experience app that shows they are an Annual Passholder (instead of their physical Passholder card) in order to get some of their discounts.
According to a Cast Member we spoke with, some individuals were sending screenshots and utilizing other people’s passes in order to take advantage of the discounts, which is why this new policy is being put in place.
To find your Annual Pass through the My Disney Experience app, tap the portion that shows 3 horizontal lines all the way at the bottom right of the screen.
You’ll then select Tickets and Passes…
…and find your Annual Pass with your name on it, the pass type, and the expiration date. That’s what you’ll need to show to get your discount.
As this new policy is implemented, you may see variations throughout the parks, so just keep that in mind. Be sure to come prepared with your My Disney Experience app ready at check-out so you can make your check-out process run smoothly!
If you’re paying the big bucks for an Annual Pass, you should do your best to get the most out of it, so don’t forget to ask about those discounts at merchandise and dining locations throughout Disney World. The worst they say is “no.” The best they say is “yes” and you can save some $$$!
