    Am I able to purchase and use annual pass discount animal kingdom after hour tickets before I activate my annual pass? I’d like to attend the after hour event only not during regular park hours. I plan on activate my annual pass in June.

    It’s wonderful to see you at the Disney Parks Moms Panel today, Chia! Welcome back!

    Three chEARs for becoming part of the Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder family! Being able to prolong the magic for an entire year, along with the incredible benefits Annual Passes come with make it so very worthwhile! The discounts on select merchandise, dining, Resort hotel rooms, and let’s not forget the special ticketed events like Disney After Hours events are just some of the great perks!

    Disney After Hours events are so magical with incredible entertainment and lighter crowds. Although your Annual Pass won’t be active at the time, you will still be able to purchase the discounted tickets to Disney After Hours as long as you have purchased your Annual Pass! 

    If you purchased your Annual Pass online, it will already be linked to your My Disney Experience account. This is how you will be able to take advantage of the discounted ticket. If you have called to purchase the Annual Pass instead, you can use the confirmation number given to you to link to your My Disney Experience account to receive your discount. If by any chance you aren’t able to see the discounted tickets because your Annual Pass is not yet activated, you can call and speak with a Cast Member at Walt Disney World Annual Passholders and they will be able to verify that you are an Annual Passholder for your discount. After that, you will be ready to enjoy your night at Disney After Hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park

    Have the most enchanting time, Chia!
