    Family is considering out of state annual passes for 2013. Do they usually offer discounts for room and dining packages for passholders like other vacation packages with tickets? When does annual pass start - begining of year or first use? Luv the panel

    Hi Rachel!

    Having an annual pass has saved my family lots of money and not just on park entry.  I love taking advantage of the 20% off merchandise discount with my premium pass.  Even 10% off with a standard pass is great!  The only discounts that I have seen and taken advantage of for passholders are room-only discount.  There are no vacation package discounts for passholders.  Passholders do have the option of purchasing the dining plan if you are booked in a room-only reservation that was booked as a passholder, but it is at regular price and not discounted.  This is still huge because the only other guests who have the option of adding the dining plan to a room-only reservation are Disney Vacation Club members.  

    Your annual passes will have a start date of the day you activate them and will be good for an entire year from that day.

    Have a magical day!
