    I bought a 5-day ticket for use in December. On Oct 10th, I called and upgraded the ticket to an annual pass. I activated my annual pass on Oct 11th. What should the anniversary date be? The date purchased, the date upgraded, or the date activated?

    Hi, Shannon! Welcome to planDisney - and welcome to the Walt Disney World Annual Passholder family!  It looks like you've already had a chance to take your new Annual Pass out for a spin. I hope you had tons of fun exploring the theme parks!

    Typically, your Annual Pass will expire one year from the date of activation. The best way to verify the expiration date on your particular Annual Pass is to check your My Disney Experience account. Just fire up the My Disney Experience mobile app on your phone and click on the three little horizontal lines in the bottom right corner of your screen, then on the "Tickets and Passes" tile on the next page. That will show you all of the tickets and Annual Passes associated with your account as a shaded box with the name of the Guest who owns that ticket or pass. The expiration date for each one will be right at the bottom of that box. You can also click on the calendar to see the blockout dates for your Annual Pass, which will be a big help when planning your visits!

    Shannon, if you're having trouble locating your Annual Pass or the date doesn't look right, head over to the Annual Passholder Program page on the Walt Disney World website and scroll down to the bottom to see contact info for V.I.PASSHOLDER Support. A Cast Member will be happy to help you make sure you get every single magical day from your Annual Pass.

    It's such a great time to be a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder, isn't it? I'm really looking forward to all the amazing things coming as part of the 50th Anniversary Celebration!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, Shannon! I wish you a year full of faith, trust, and pixie dust as an Annual Passholder!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
