    I would like to get an annual pass, but not sure when I will be able to attend, even when parks re-open. How long do I have to activate my pass after purchasing?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Myles!

    It is a pleasure to answer your first question and learn about your interest in unlocking the magic of a Walt Disney World Annual Pass. Passholders can take advantage of so many perks that depending on how often you visit each year or the duration of your stays, this may be the best option to enjoy all that the Walt Disney World Resort has to offer.

    There are different types of Annual Passes, but generally they currently include admission to all four theme parks, exclusive discounts, early access to FastPass+ planning, and complimentary standard theme park parking. Besides the regular benefits, there are pixie dusted special offers and extras that can make your visits even more magical.

    Myles, I have confirmed that there is currently no time limit to activate your Annual Pass, so you are welcome to do so at a time that works for you. After purchasing your pass, I recommend linking it immediately to My Disney Experience, and please note that your one-year period begins the moment you activate it at the Walt Disney World Resort. You may activate your pass at ticket windows located at the entrance of all four theme parks, or at the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. Don’t forget to bring your exchange certificate and a valid government-issued photo ID.

    Thank you for sending your question our way, Myles! I hope this helps you while planning Disney Magic Moments.

    See ya real soon,
