Walt Disney World will offer special perks and promotions for select guests at various times throughout the year. These can range from great discounts on the new interactive Star Wars: Galactic Starcrusier, great preview events for TRON, and also discounts at Walt Disney World Resorts this summer.

These are great perks that are offered for a limited time, but now select guests can enjoy these great perks indefinitely.

PhotoPass Perks

Now being an Annual Passholder comes with a few extra perks that we are very excited about. Previously, the Disney PhotoPass lens was only available to guests that purchased Disney Genie+ for the day. Now, Walt Disney World Annual Passholders have unlimited access to these Disney PhotoPass lenses.

You can capture photos of you and Baby Groot for free. These PhotoPass lenses also are a great way to pass the time while waiting in line at Disney Parks. There are so many fun PhotoPass lenses and many can only be unlocked at a specific park.

Earlier we shared how you can add one of your PhotoPass photos to the Cinderella Castle Mural of Memories. For just $9.99 you could have this photo on the mural for the next 3+ years! Now, Walt Disney World Annual Passholders can add a photo to this Mural of Memories for FREE.

Create Your Own Disney Slideshow

As if this was not enough, a brand new perk is now available to Walt Disney World Annual Passholders. They can now create their own slideshow video featuring many of the photos captured by Disney PhotoPass photographers.

On the My Disney Experience app, there is an option near the bottom of the screen to Treasure Your Vacation Memories. After a simple click to View Video Memory, a beautiful slide show is created adding many of your favorite memories from around the Walt Disney World Parks. When you download your video memory, it will be added to the camera roll of your mobile device. You can then share this great slideshow with your family and friends.

These are just a couple of great perks simply for being an Annual Passholder. Remember that big changes are coming for Annual Passholders with Park Reservations on April 18th. Be sure to read more about this HERE.

Funny these are the same people that Chapek considered the scourge of Disney Guests. Now this is really not that great of a perk, but it is a step in the right direction. Now what about the Typical guest? You know like all resort guests get early or late admissions to various parks during the week like the pre Chapek days, and how about the Three-Tiered Dining Plan for all resort guests including the people camping in their own campers at Fort Wilderness? I believe that the parking fee for guests at the resort hotels was dropped by Iger last year. Another nice thing was the inclusion of photo pass with the purchase of the Dining plan. Since Genie+ operates off the old fast pass framework make it free a few suggestions for making it better for the Resort Guests and the AP, make a reservation system for Resort Guests 60 days out and for APs 30 days out (not staying a resort hotel). Save 20% of reservations for day guests and off-site guests. Speaking of Reservations get rid of it and return to the pre Chapek way of crowd control with the tiered closure of the park for entrance. Where the last ones to be able to enter a park before complete closure of entrance. It always worked before why it shouldn't still work now. It was a fairer system that this reservation system currently. The changes would make it a little more vacation like rather than work like. If Disney is truly listening to the fans they will start changing more and bringing back some of the old things that worked and made it a much more magical place. While Disney parks were expensive if one compared a trip for a week to Disney with hotel, dining and entertainment it still was valuable and in some cases was actually less than going to some of the big Cities. I used to do the comparison when I would take the family to WDW ad would take the costs of traveling to other popular destinations in the country and found that it wasn't that much ore to g to WDW. now it is no comparison going anywhere is less than going to a Disney Park.
