    Hi! We want to buy an annual pass next year, but not until we’re ready to use it (in Jauary). Does this mean we won’t be able to make any dining/fastpass reservations ahead of time? Thanks!

    Dear Heather,

    Thank you so much for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about planning ahead for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    I am also an Annual Passholder and I absolutely love all of the perks and discounts that come along with it!

    The great news is that you can purchase the Annual Pass whenever you choose, and then you can book your Advanced Dining Reservations and FastPass+ selections with no problem, at the prescribed dates ahead of time. On the first day that you arrive to the Walt Disney World Resort, you can stop by a concierge or any Guest Services location and they will be able to activate your Annual Pass so that you can get into the park!

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
