    if I buy an annual pass in 2017 but don't go until spring of 2018, what is the date of activation of the pass.

    Hiya Gary!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your excellent question about Walt Disney World Resort annual passes!

    Your annual pass year will begin the day you activate your pass at a Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket window or Disney Springs Guest Relations location. In other words, your annual pass will not be active until you activate it, in person, during your next visit.

    I am a Walt Disney World Resort annual passholder myself and am excited for you to find out the many Walt Disney World Resort annual passholder discounts and benefits that await you if you decide to purchase an annual pass. Benefits vary based on the pass you choose, but may include:

      Complimentary standard parking at Walt Disney World Resort theme parks
      Discounts on merchandise
      Discounts on dining
      Disney PhotoPass downloads

    Gary, I hope I have helped answer your question. If you have any additional questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are always here to help you plan your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Wishing you a Pixie-Dusted Year,
