    I want to get annual passes now but won’t use them until December 2, Can I make fast pSs selections before I activate my passes?

    Hello Shanna, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I am so excited that you are planning to visit the Walt Disney World Resort this holiday season. This is one of my favorite times of year to visit because the entire resort is decorated in all its glory. Every theme park, Disney Springs and every resort hotel is decked out for the season.

    I am happy to tell you that if you purchase an annual pass in advance, you can make FastPass+ selections before it is activated. Any guest with a valid theme park admission ticket linked to their My Disney Experience account can make FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of your arrival. As an annual passholder, you can make up to 7 days of FastPass+ selections. If you are planning to stay at a select Disney Resort Hotel, you can make your FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance and for the entire length of your trip, up to 14 days.

    When you purchase your ticket, you will want to link your ticket ID number to your My Disney Experience account. You will still have to activate your pass at a theme park ticket window or at Disney Springs before you begin your day at a theme park. Once your annual pass has been activated, you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of being a passholder.

    See ya real soon,
