    When does my annual pass expire? I am buying it Jan2019. Do they expire12mths after I purchase it or 12mths after the first day I use it? I was hoping to buy it 2mths before so I can book rides with Fast Pass. Also, sometimes I see they expire after 13mths

    Bonjour Rebecca, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    I’ve had a Walt Disney World Annual Pass for well over a decade now, so I can definitely help answer any questions you may have. If you purchase your pass in January 2019 but you don’t travel until, say, March 2019, your Pass will be valid from one year from when you first use it to enter a Theme Park (that is, the first day that you choose to use it). 

    Based on my experience, you can absolutely use an Annual Pass that is linked to your My Disney Experience account in order to make your FastPass+ selections, even prior to its activation at a Theme Park. 

    Finally, in the past, there have been some Special Offers where renewals and other Annual Pass purchases have been extended an extra month so that the pass covers admission for 13 months following its activation. I don’t believe that there is any such promotion on right now, but you never know when one might pop up!

    I hope my answer helps you get the most out of your Annual Pass. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. Et n’oubliez pas que vous pouvez également me poser des questions en français!

    Have a Magical Day,
