Being an Annual Passholder does have its benefits.
You have an excuse to make another trip, you can run into the parks just for lunch, and you get some nice discounts on merchandise and meals.
It can also give you a jump on the masses when it comes to registration for runDisney events.
*It does not GUARANTEE registration. Important to remember.*
This information is found on your Annual Passholder page on the Disney websites. Your registration links will also be found there and will go LIVE when the time to register happens.
Knowing this can help ease the worries and concerns of site crashes when it comes to registering for your favorite race.
There are NO discounts, just a week to two week head start on registration.
Something you MUST remember: registrations are limited for the Annual Passholder (and DVC members- typically offered the same dates but I’m not DVC so I can’t comment on that.) I’ve heard numbers reported that 10% of the registrations are available for these two groups, so if you do not have an AP, do NOT panic! Plenty of slots will open at the normal dates.
