Summer has officially begun, and along with the arrival of summer, Disney recently announced some great new specials for WDW Annual Passholders. These new specials for Annual Passholders include discounts on dining, merchandise, and a great deal on water park tickets and guest theme park tickets, as well.
It’s no secret that Disney vacations are quite expensive. Although being a local helps to make Disney much more affordable, the cost of shopping, dining, and exploring Walt Disney World can still add up quickly. Thankfully, Disney offers some really great specials and discounts throughout the year, specifically for Annual Passholders.
Earlier this week, we wrote a post about the sudden and dramatic increase in annual pass prices. An often overlooked benefit of buying an annual pass is all of the special offers that come along with the annual pass.
WDW Annual Passholders can take advantage of a 20% discount on lunch at several restaurants in all four of the WDW theme parks, as well as restaurants in resort hotels. This discount is valid for lunch only, and is available from 11:30 AM to 4:00 PM. Annual Passholders can take advantage of this discount along with up to three guests. This offer applies to non-discounted food and non-alcoholic beverages, and excludes special events and dining packages. This offer is only available through July 2nd, so time is running out quickly.
Throughout the summer, Annual Passholders can also take advantage of a 20% discount on merchandise at WDW. Disney is rolling out a ton of new merchandise for the summer. This discount is sure to help Annual Passholders save some money as they load up on all of the great new options that will be available in Disney merchandise locations all summer long.
From July 5th through September 7th, 2019, Annual Passholders can purchase the Summer Splash Pass. For $69, plus tax, this pass provides Annual Passholders with unlimited enjoyment of Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach water parks. Tickets can be purchased at the ticket window at either water park. If you’re looking for a fun way to beat the heat at WDW this summer, this is a great option.
Gold, Platinum, Platinum Plus, and Premier Passholders can enjoy a significant discount on single-day park hopper guest tickets from June 18th through August 8th, 2019. These guest tickets are only $89, plus tax. This is a huge discount compared to the full price of a single-day park hopper ticket, especially on the busiest (most expensive) days. There is a limit of six guest tickets per Annual Passholder throughout the course of this offer, and these guest tickets must be used on the day of purchase. Tickets can be purchased at the ticket windows in any of the four WDW theme parks.
These are the newest specials and discounts to be announced by Disney. For the full list of current offers for Annual Passholders, you can check out the Walt Disney World website.
