    We book DVC 11 months out and like to book tickets at the same time. In 2019 we are coming for more than 2 weeks, so Gold Annual passes make sense. We won't be arriving until Fall 2019. How long do we have to activate the vouchers? Do they expire?

    Hi Sarah-Jane,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel, and hello to a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member.

    I'm excited for you to hear you're planning your next Walt Disney World vacation early. Personally, I always find the ability to make Disney Vacation Club Home Resort reservations at the 11-month booking window to be a great advantage in vacation planning.

    I also think it's great to hear you're planning on a Disney Gold Pass. I think an Annual Pass makes great sense in situations like yours when you're looking forward to an extended stay.

    You can purchase your Annual Pass and exchange the pass certificate for a valid Annual Pass when you arrive. Prices for the current Annual Passes are valid through December 31, 2019. It sounds like you are planning to activate your passes before that time, so your plan to buy the Annual Pass now and activate it when you arrive 11 months from now sounds like it will work out fine. If you were to activate them after December 31, 2019, you might have to pay a difference.

    You can call Member Services at (800) 800-9800 to buy Annual Passes or you can buy them online at DisneyVacationClub.com by going to the "Explore Membership" menu, and follow the link for "Member Benefits & More" where you you'll see the option to filter for "Benefit Type" to select "Tickets & Tours." Using these approaches to purchase your Annual Pass will help ensure to get the discount for which you're eligible.

    Sarah-Jane, here's wishing you a wonderful Disney Vacation Club stay!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
