    If I buy an annual pass, will I be able to make fastpasses 60 days out with my hotel reservation? If so, does this mean it’s active and my start date for the pass will be that day? Or will the actual annual pass not be activated until I go to guest service

    Hi Debbie,

    Congratulations on joining the Annual Passholder family! I’m so excited for you! Besides being able to visit the Walt Disney World Resort whenever you’d like, you’re going to love all of the benefits and discounts available to you!

    Once you have purchased your Annual Pass, it should link automatically to your account and will simply “hang out” there. It won’t be active yet, but because it’s there, you’ll be able to make your FastPass+ selections for your upcoming trip. With a Disney Resort hotel reservation, you may make your selections 60 days in advance for the entire length of your trip, up to 14 days. When you arrive, you’ll simply want to take your voucher and a valid photo I.D. to any theme park ticket window or to Guest Relations at Disney Springs and a Cast Member will activate your pass and give you your physical membership card. You’ll definitely want to hang onto that as it will be your ticket into the theme parks as well as proof of your membership for when you’d like to take advantage of any Annual Passholder perks. Once your voucher is activated, your magical year will begin!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Debbie. I hope you have a truly wonderful year celebrating traditions and making new memories with your Annual Pass!
