    Linda from VA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I am an adult child living with my mom who is a DVC member, can I activate and use my DVC annual pass without my mom (the member) being present on the day of activation? We both share the same home address.

    Hi there, Linda! Thanks so much for visiting planDisney--I'm delighted that you've decided to be our Guest! You've got a friend in me and I'll be happy to help you find the information you're looking for. 

    We've been Disney Vacation Club Members for close to a decade now, and I think it's still one of the best decisions we've made!  We just returned from a visit to Walt Disney World Resort and before we headed to Florida, I made a point of checking out the most up-to-date information on the Member Benefits page so we could use some of the great discounts and special offers. 

    One of the best Member Benefits is the ability to purchase a Sorcerer Pass, which is a Member-exclusive iteration of a Walt Disney World Annual Pass, currently offered at a significant discount. It's a great option if you plan to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth on multiple occasions during the year--and I fully support that plan!

    Linda, you will not be able to purchase a Sorcerer Pass yourself in this instance. As a DVC Member, your mother can purchase a pass for you as long as the home address listed on your photo ID matches hers (as you've noted in your question!). She will also need to be present to activate the pass, or she will need to provide you with a copy of her photo ID and place a call to Member Services to get authorization for you to activate it on your own.

    I hope this information is just what you needed to unlock a year's worth of adventures at Walt Disney World! Thanks again for bringing your question to planDisney--we're always here with more tips and tricks to add a bit of extra pixie dust to your vacation anytime you need us!

    Stay Magical!
