    We bought APs we have NOT activated for a Dec trip. We want to purchase Villains AH tickets plus Magic Bands with the AP discount BUT when we get to the park for Villains, we don't want to activate our AP. Is this ok?

    Hi Mark,

    Ooh...I'm so happy to hear that you've recently joined the Annual Passholder family! Congratulations! You're going to LOVE being able to soak up the magic and fun of the Walt Disney World Resort for an entire year and will certainly make memories you'll cherish forever!

    While you are correct that being an Annual Passholder comes with many wonderful perks and discounts, you will need to have activated your annual pass before you'll be eligible for discounts. Once you have linked your annual pass voucher to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to make FastPass+ selections in advance and can even be eligible for Annual Passholder discounts on Disney Resort hotel rooms, but you'll need to show proof once you arrive and activate your annual pass that you really are eligible for the discount. A friend of mine just experienced Disney Villains After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park and LOVED it, so I'm sure that you'll have a wickedly fantastic time, but unfortunately you won't be able to take advantage of the Annual Passholder discount this time if you'd prefer to wait to activate your annual pass until December.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Mark, and please let us know if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a fun visit this summer and a truly magical year celebrating your favorite Disney traditions and discovering new favorites with your annual pass!
