Annual Pass Benefits

I just received my first Annual Pass. Yay! I was wondering if you all could tell me some benefits you get with it besides the on site hotels. Thanks in advance!

You can use them at any store/restaurants inside either park and receive a discount. You can also use an AP at CityWalk for discounts at most stores and restaurants there too. If you have an AP, you are eligible for discounts on special events such as Halloween Horror Nights and Rock The Universe.

Basically...the two main benefits are: free parking and discounts on food, hotels and merchandise.

I'm wondering something about the APs. If I buy one Preferred Pass and three Power Passes, would there be any problem with that plan? I was thinking that I would use my Preferred Pass to park and I'm usually the one to buy the food anyway. We wouldn't be going during any of the blackout dates anyway.
Thanks!

many families do that.

you only need one preferred pass for the discounts.


power pass has no added perks.

Sounds like a grand plan to me!

That is exactly my plan, and I've ran it through this board before and got the stamp of approval.

Just wondering how much is the restaurant discount (10%?) and is it the same at all restaurants inside the parks and on Citywalk?

It's usually 10% at all establishments. Not all restaurants at CityWalk offer discounts but you should show the AP when you order. The worst thing they can say is no.

The beverage carts (within the parks and CityWalk) do not offer the discount.
