Walt Disney World Resort passholders enjoy a full year of magic, and this summer they can take advantage of several new perks and benefits with special, limited-time offerings.
From special ticket deals to exclusive merchandise opportunities and other experiences, now, more than ever, is the time for passholders to explore the many options available to them at Walt Disney World Resort.
New and limited-time passholder offerings for this summer include:
With the return of the popular Bring-a-Friend offer, select passholders can share the magic of Disney with others through the purchase of a one-day ticket with Park Hopper Option for the special price of $89 plus tax, available for purchase and use until Aug. 8 (offer valid for Gold, Platinum, Platinum Plus and Premier passholders).
Tickets will be available for purchase at theme park ticket windows and must be used on the date of purchase. Passholders can purchase up to six tickets over the course of this promotion.
Passholders can purchase a new Summer Splash Pass to receive unlimited visits to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park through Sept. 7 for the same cost as a nondiscounted one-day water park ticket, $69 plus tax. Tickets will be available for purchase at water park ticket windows.
Special event offers
H2O Glow Nights are back in 2019 at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon water park, and passholders can save $15 off the price sold at the ticket window when purchasing tickets in advance for this nighttime party on select nights.
While at the party, passholders can take a walk on the "vile" side during Disney Villains After Hours, a special event held on select nights this summer at Magic Kingdom Park, and save $30 off the price sold at the ticket window when purchasing tickets in advance.
They also will receive a complimentary special Passholder Disney Villains After Hours ornament featuring Hades while at the event (limit one per passholder while supplies last). Ornaments can be picked up at Mickey’s Star Traders in Tomorrowland during the event.

Also, Platinum, Platinum Plus and Premier Annual Passholders will be among the first to experience Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, with complimentary special preview opportunities planned before the land’s opening on Aug. 29.
Capacity is limited and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. More information and registration details for previews will be shared at a later date.
These added perks join a host of offerings already available to all Walt Disney World Resort passholders, including up to 20 percent off select merchandise; up to 20 percent off at select table-service dining locations; complimentary standard parking at theme parks and water parks; and special offers on stays at Disney Resort hotels from time to time.
