    Do annual passes include the memory maker or do you have to purchase that separately? Also if purchased in October 2018 would they be good until October 2019? TIA

    Hi Amy,

    I'm excited to hear that you're considering joining the Annual Passholder family! Not only will you be able to enjoy the Walt Disney World Resort all year long, but you'll find that there are lots of wonderful perks available to Annual Passholders!

    Yes, the two types of Annual Passes that are available to all Guests, the Platinum Plus and Platinum Annual Passes, do include unlimited PhotoPass downloads for the entire year. When you consider that Memory Maker is valid for 30 days worth of photos, that is quite an added value to your Annual Pass purchase! All of those photos and videos will surely help you relive the moments of your magical vacations for many years to come.

    And you're also correct that your Annual Pass will be valid for 365 days, but that time begins when you activate it, not purchase it. When you purchase an Annual Pass online ahead of time, you'll be able to link it to your My Disney Experience account to make FastPass+ selections for upcoming trips, but you'll only receive a voucher at that point. When you arrive at the most magical place on earth, you'll simply need to take your voucher to a theme park ticket window or Guest Relations at Disney Springs along with a valid photo ID to have your Annual Pass activated. Upon activation, your incredible year will begin and you'll receive your Annual Passholder card, which may be used not only for theme park admission, but also for various discounts all around the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy, and have a truly magical year celebrating traditions and creating new memories with your Annual Pass!
