    I have an annual pass that I have not activated yet but is linked to MDE.I am planning a trip this fall but will be using other tickets,not the annual pass.Can I get discounts on purchases or activities even though the annual pass wont be activated on trip

    Hi Kelly,

    How exciting that you'll soon be joining the Annual Passholder family! You're going to LOVE all of the great perks and discounts and, of course, having the ability to visit "The Most Magical Place on Earth" whenever you'd like!

    To receive all of the wonderful benefits of your annual pass, you will need to activate it first. When you're ready to do so, you may simply take your voucher and a valid photo I.D. to a theme park ticket window or Guest Relations location at Disney Springs and a Cast Member will be happy to activate it for you. At that point, your year of magic, perks, and discounts will begin, and you'll receive a physical card that you'll need to show to verify your status as an Annual Passholder. I always keep my photo I.D. with me, too, because Cast Members can request to see that along with your valid Annual Passholder card.

    As my sweet friend and fellow Panelist Brandy shared, there is one benefit you may take advantage of before activating your annual pass. If you'd like to take advantage of an Annual Passholder Disney Resort hotel room discount before you arrive, you'll be able to do so, as long as you're planning to activate your annual pass on that trip.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kelly, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
