    When does an annual pass year begin?

    Hi, James!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I purchased my very first Annual Pass this year and I loved the freedom it gave me to visit Walt Disney World Resort many times! I learned that your Annual Pass doesn't start the day you purchased it. Your Annual Pass year starts on the day you activate your pass with Guest Relations at one of the four parks or at Disney Springs. I purchased my pass earlier in the year and activated it in March.

    I hope that helps you decide to purchase the pass and you get the chance to enjoy a magical year!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
