    Is there a way to get access to annual passes to plan park reservations and experiences before we can physically get there? Trying to plan a future trip off property & don't see a way to start plans without passes!

    Hi Dawn,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so excited that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort and that you are planning to join the Annual Passholder family!

    If I am understanding your question correctly, you will need to purchase those Annual Passes first. Once purchased, make sure they are linked to your My Disney Experience account. To link, find the confirmation number that should have been emailed tot you. Then, log into My Disney Experience, click on Add More Plans, and then click on Link Reservations and Purchases. Once linked, you should be able to make Disney Park Pass system reservations!

    When we first joined the Annual Passholder family, I did have to keep checking to make sure our Annual Passes were linked when I logged into My Disney Experience. After a few tries with logging in, they finally consistently appeared in My Disney Experience and the My Disney Experience Mobile App. When you arrive to your first theme park, stop by Guest Relations to have your Annual Passes activated. On our last visit, we picked up the new 50th Anniversary Passholder Cards!

    If you plan to stay in a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, I will also advise that you book that resort hotel and make sure it is also linked in My Disney Experience. With that resort hotel booked, you can start making advanced dining reservations. It looks like you are already currently within that dining reservation window!

    Dawn, I hope this helps! I apologize if I misunderstood your question! Sending you lots of extra planning pixie dust as you get ready for an Incredible visit!

    Magic and memories,
