Disney announces VIPassholder Nights - Exclusive free event at Disney World

Disney World announces V.I.Passholder Nights for Annual Passholders

Being an Annual Passholder at Walt Disney World just got a bit sweeter. In addition to the already existing lineup of discounts and perks, Disney announced today that they are introducing a new series of special offerings for Annual Passholders called V.I.Passholder events. These promise to provide APs with exclusive experiences, such as in-park offerings and seasonal surprises.

While details are scarce about the extent of these experiences, Disney did announce the first of these events: V.I.Passholder Nights. Read on to find out more about V.I.Passholder Nights and how to sign up.

V.I.Passholder Nights

In select nights starting in August, Gold, Platinum, and Platinum Plus Annual Passholders will have the opportunity to “enjoy special after-hours access” to select attractions, shops, and restaurants at Magic Kingdom or Epcot for 2 hours after park closing. V.I.Passholder Nights is a free event.

This sounds a bit like Extra Magic Hours for APs, with one key distinction. You must register beforehand in order to get access to V.I.Passholder Nights. There’s no word on what the capacity is for these events, although expect registration to fill up quick.

How To Register

If you are an Annual Passholder, check your email. Disney will be sending out email invitations. It also looks as though Passholders can only make a reservation for one of the nights. Since Disney is saying that registration is limited, you might want to add notifications on your email app for disneydestinations@passholder.disneydestinations.com or any other Disney AP promotional email you receive (on Apple Mail this is the VIPs feature).

That’s all we know for now. Stay tuned for more details about this Passholder-exclusive event!
