    New to the page and have a few Questions.

    Hello I am new to this page and I am hoping that you will be able to help me better then other pages I have been on. First let me tell you about myself. I am a stay at home mother and Avon Rep. My two year old daughter is on a full blow princess kick so I am now watching most of the princess movies over and over again.. We are going back in October to Run the tower of Terror race. This will be my husband and mine second time. This year I am only running the 5k I want to see him run through the finish line. But I am very happy that they have added the kids race that morning so out little one can run too. OK here is my question.... I am looking at the annual pass for my in laws they are coming with us in October and are heading back to the world in January. But I want to know where is the best place to get them from? As well as the benefits of having one. We will not be staying on property. the cost was just to much. Were going to be a 3 bedroom condo at the All star vacation homes. The price was cheaper then on room at a mod resort. Any way any help would be great thanks....

    Re: New to the page and have a few Questions.

    You can purchase an annual pass at any ticket counter of any park, so it is very easy and quick to get an annual pass. You can also order a voucher through the Disney website, but you still have to take the voucher to a ticket window to get your actual annual pass.

    Being an annual passholder has some great perks!!

    Not only does it let you enter all 4 parks (and the water parks with a premium pass) for a full year, some of the other benefits include:
    *Free parking
    * 10% off of your food price at lunch at several Epcot, Downtown Disney and Disney Resort restaurants
    *Discounts on certain ticketed events (like Mickey's Christmas party or the Halloween party)
    *50% off of mini golf for up to 4 people
    *$2 off of adult admission to the AMC movie theater Downtown Disney
    *Discounts on sports and recreation throughout WDW
    * 15% off of several Disney tours (like the segway tour in Epcot)
    *10-15% off at several merchandise locations at Downtown Disney

    And, in my opinion, the biggest perk of all ---
    *** Annual pass discounted room rates throughout the year!!!!

    The annual pass rates have not come out for October yet - but keep a lookout for them (or have your Travel Agent keep their eye out) - this one perk alone could save you enough money to almost pay for the pass!

    Any other questions -- just give a shout out!!!
    I LOVE being an annual passholder!

    Re: New to the page and have a few Questions.

    I know you used to be able to buy the vouchers at any Disney Store also, so thats an option if you have one near you.

    Passholders also have the added benefit of various special events throughout the year, often getting to ride the newest attraction before it opens to the general public or viewing movies before they come out and many other opportunities.
