    This is awesome, now I don't need to buy TIW - with all of these discounts, it would no longer make it worth it just to buy for Be Our Guest dinner and Cinderella Royal Table lunch.
    Think this will include alcohol?

    There aren't a large number of TS and QS locations available. BOG and CRT are not included. Most of the places that are included aren't where I planned to go anyway. Ah, well. Such is life. :)

    I think it will not include alcohol since the normal 10% AP discount doesn't.

    It does put a little pinch on the TiW sales I imagine. Mine expires in February so thinking to not renew until this benefit is gone. I can work around restrictions for 7 mos.

    The OFFICIAL Press Release:


    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Wrapped in exciting fall events, the merriest of holiday happenings and a 2017 filled with spectacular openings, Walt Disney World Resort is marking its 45th anniversary — and unwrapping three special offers for passholders.

    Popular Walt Disney World passes, good for theme park admission, valuable Disney savings and other perks throughout the year, gets even sweeter to mark the anniversary:

    • New dining and merchandise benefits – Passholders will receive 10 percent off food and nonalcoholic beverages at select table-service restaurants at theme parks and Disney resort hotels and 20 percent off purchases at Disney owned-and-operated merchandise locations. These new benefits will continue even after the anniversary comes to an end on Sept. 30, 2017.
    • Even more savings exclusively during the 45th anniversary – In addition to the ongoing benefits, passholders can save up to 20 percent off the price of food and non-alcoholic beverages at select restaurants in the theme parks, resort hotels and Disney Springs, as well as dinner shows. Passholders can choose from 45 restaurants participating in this special offer during the 45th anniversary year that runs now through Sept. 30, 2017. Among the great restaurant choices: Signature Dining (Flying Fish, Artist Point, Citricos) and Family Dining (Jungle Skipper Canteen, Wave of American Flavors). And, for the first time in forever, savings are available at select quick-service locations.
    • Get 13 months for the price of 12 – Guests who purchase a 12-month pass will enjoy 13 months of unsurpassed passholder magic filled with seasonal events, unique attractions and stellar entertainment. New passes must be purchased between Oct. 2, 2016 and Jan. 3, 2017. Prices vary depending on pass type selected – Weekday Select, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Platinum Plus.
    In addition to offering theme park admission, passes include special savings on resort hotel rooms, merchandise, recreation, sports, tours and spa treatments. Passholders will find still more savings on admission to special events and entertainment.

    I'm not seeing any official Disney page confirm the 13 months for price of 12. Am I missing it?

    So for the 13 month deal... if we buy before January 3, 2017 but don't activate it until May 2017, will we still get the free 13th month?

    Wow, I really think this is great offer. Essentially an 8% discount on AP. I was on the fence about AP purchase because we live flying distance away, but this (plus some creative Sams Club gift card purchases on Disney Visa) have turned this into 16% discount. Really can't beat that. I'm in!!

    I was wondering the same thing. Thinking of buying when I finish with my 10 tkt in Nov., Then redeem it in Dec 2017.

    Noticed you are DVC owners, so don't you get a discount for being DVC?

    I'm not sure since we purchased resale. Sometimes these discounts don't apply to us. I'm curious to know too but not holding my breath. Brand new AP's would sure help us get some good use out of our DVC. :))

    I'm super ticked over the 13th month thing. We just bought new AP's 2 weeks ago. Having this extra month could have meant we could go back again NEXT fall for F&W. REALLLLLY NOT happy about missing out on that. :headache::mad::sad2:
