If you’re a Disney World Annual Passholder, WDW is bringing back an awesome perk. In the My Disney Experience App, Disney World just announced that V.I.Passholder Days are making their grand return in June 2023. Disney World has previously held V.I.Passholder Events and had V.I.Passholder Perks, but this is the first time in a while that WDW will have this exclusive benefit for APs. It’s like Christmas in June, but with more Mickey and less snow (unless Elsa drops by).

Now, for those who are new to the Passholder family or need a memory refresher, V.I.Passholder Days are special, limited-time events created exclusively for Disney World Annual Passholders. Think of it as a VIP party where the “P” stands for Passholder – which you could probably gather from the name.

Disney recently released some details in The Passholder Buzz in the My Disney Experience app:

“No, it’s not your imagination—a new Passholder magnet is coming! Check out the special sneak peek video and see if it sparks any guesses as to who will be featured. Passholders will have a limited-time, exclusive space to rest and cool off with dedicated seating (subject to availability). Passholders can enjoy increased discounts on select merchandise and dining locations across Walt Disney World Resort, including select EPCOT International Flower and Garden Outdoor Kitchens. New Passholder exclusive treats will be available for purchase. Passholders will also get a chance to capture memories of their latest park visit with two limited-time photo ops.”

Let’s unpack everything APs can look forward to during V.I.Passholder Days.

Update 5-25-2023 – We’ve updated this article with new details of how to get the Figment AP Magnet, where to find the AP Lounge, what the new discount is, and more.

Disney World VIPassholder Days – 2023 Dates

VIPassholder Days will take place from May 31 – June 30, 2023.

New AP Magnet to Inspire Your Imagination!

Figment Annual Passholder Magnet - Disney World VIPassholder Days

First and foremost, Annual Passholders will have a chance to get their hands on a brand new AP Character Magnet, which is one of our favorite Disney World freebies. Disney dropped a not-so-subtle hint during the initial announcement:

“New Magnet? Imagine That! Looking for the next Character? Take a look and see if something sparks.”

Well, that got our Disney-sense tingling, and we were right. Everyone’s favorite purple imaginary dragon, Figment, will be featured on the magnet. Considering how popular his popcorn bucket is, expect this magnet to be in high demand.

How to get the Figment Annual Passholder Magnet

Creations Shop - EPCOT - Walt Disney World - Guide2WDW

The Figment AP Magnet will be available from 9 am – 9 pm at the Creations Shop.

From Disney:

“Each Passholder must be present and show their valid Annual Pass card, linked MagicBand or Disney MagicMobile pass, and a government-issued photo ID to receive a magnet. Limit one magnet per Passholder: Available while supplies last. Not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged magnets. Locations, dates and operation hours are subject to change without notice.”

AP Relaxation Zone in the Land

Next, we have an exclusive relaxation zone just for Passholders. When Disney first announced this, we were envisioning an AP-exclusive lounge, but it turns out that it’s just a reserved area inside the Land Pavilion next to Sunshine Seasons.

Two items will be available for purchase at Sunshine Seasons, exclusively for APs.

A Spark of Grape Shake: Grape, guava, passionfruit, orange and lime
Raspberry “Lemonade” Tart: Shortbread tart filled with lemon mousse, raspberry jam and raspberry mousse.
