Annual Passholder Perks and Exclusives

Walt Disney World Annual Passholders not only get to enjoy a year’s worth of theme park admission, but they also get some AP perks. For example, many table service and signature dining locations provide AP holders with a discount. Annual Passholders can also get 20% off most merchandise around Walt Disney World.

It does seem at times that the list of perks has been shrinking. For example, Memory Maker, which was once included with Annual Passes is now an add-on for an additional fee.

However, now and then fun new perks and Annual Passholder exclusive merch, food, and drinks emerge. Here is a round-up of the latest AP offerings.

Disney just announce a new AP scavenger hunt. My Disney Experience states, “We invite you on a quest to find Orange Bird throughout Disney Springs starting July 5, 2022.”

Explore the 4 areas of Disney Springs––from the Marketplace to The Landing, from Town Center to West Side––in search of this fan-favorite bird. Passholders can pick up a complimentary scavenger hunt map from Disney’s Wonderful World of Memories from 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM each day, while supplies last. Once all Orange Bird locations have been found, Passholders can complete an additional puzzle using the clues they’ve complied on their hunt.

You will have to hurry though. The scavenger hunt is available only from July 5 to August 5, 2022, while supplies last. You must present your valid Passholder ID and government-issued photo ID to pick up your map.

  1. The only perk is a 3 cent magnet. What a joke. We APs can all see that DW is just trying to get APs into Disney Springs to spend more money without taking up valuable space in their parks. How about making the APs like we are valued customers again Disney?

  2. Well if I’d have said “B*D”, which is actually how I feel about this pathetic sop to us who have been loyal to Disney for many years of repeat visits, not to mention the money we’ve spent, it probably would have been censored.

  3. Passholder magnets were mailed out during covid,why can they not be mailed out now. We cannot always get down there from Indiana in the time frame window to get these sought after magnets. If it is a Passholder benefit then it should be sent to those of us that cannot get down there

  4. Wow! The “opportunity” to purchase an exclusive pass holder item! What. A. Joke! How about free Memory maker again? Increase the discount to 30%? Oh right…that doesn’t hell Chapek’s billion dollar salary!

  5. These are terrible “perks.” The opportunity to buy an item (without even receiving a discount) is so Chapek. It would’ve been better to offer nothing.

  6. Funny how the chance to buy an exclusive, overpriced drink somewhere at WDW is considered a perk. Ha! And you only get a magnet if you’re at WDW. Sigh…
