Pluto Topiary at Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

    Im an AP holder and am taking a trip with my family of 5, not staying on sight. Is my annual Pass package enough to buy a dining plan and use the discounts? We don't all need annual passes? I would just buy tickets for them and not for me?

    Hi Sheri,

    Greetings from a fellow Hoosier! I'm excited to hear that you'll get to enjoy a Disney trip with your entire family! You'll be visiting during one of my favorite festivals of the year - the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival! The flowers and topiaries are spectacular, and there are also delicious foods to eat and fun concerts to enjoy. It's so much fun!

    While only Guests who are staying at a Disney Resort hotel are eligible to purchase a Disney Dining Plan, I'm happy to let you know that you will be able to use any available Annual Passholder discounts, including the retail and dining ones. Your discount will be valid for your entire family's meals and purchases as long as you're with them. There's no need for them to have an Annual Pass, too. You'll just want to be sure to keep your Annual Passholder card and a valid photo ID with you to claim any discounts.

    Perhaps one of my favorite perks of being an Annual Passholder is being able to view, download, and share all of your Disney PhotoPass photos! The only thing better than enjoying a visit to the most magical place on earth is being able to relive the memories for years to come. As long as you're all connected via the Family & Friends list within My Disney Experience and have given each other permission to see your photos, you'll be able to access the photos captured by any of your Mouseketeers.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sheri, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you and your family have a truly magical vacation!
