I'm trying to decide if I should buy a annual pass for just myself for our December (Christmas) trip this year with my family of 8. So that our whole group would get the APH discount for our table when we dine at a restaurant. -Is the annual pass holder restaurant dining discounts valid year round, or is their certain blackout periods throughout the year during the peak seasons that restaurants will not accept the pass holder discount??? -Also if I purchase just the 1 Annual Pass for myself as the rest of the group will have regular 1 day park tickets. Will I be able to use my annual pass discount for my whole group of 8 at our table?? Thanks in advance for your help!
