    If I buy an annual pass today but don't use it until November, would it be good till next November? Or would it expire one year from today?

    Hello there, Charlene! I'm so glad you've stopped by planDisney to talk about one of my favorite things - Annual Passes. 

    I've been a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder for years now, Charlene, and I can absolutely tell you that it is well worth the initial investment. I have made so many wonderful memories being a passholder, it's been so much fun. Charlene, I think you'll be happy to know that activation of your Walt Disney World Annual Pass does not happen until the first time you use it to enter a Walt Disney World Theme Park. From then, you have a whole year to enjoy using your annual pass whenever possible. So if you go ahead and purchase it now, if you haven't done so already, but don't use it until your trip in November, you will have until November 2022 to enjoy it! 

    With the sale of new Walt Disney World Annual Passes opening back up last week, we did see some changes to the program, Charlene. Now, as an out-of-state-Guest, you are only able to purchase one tier of annual passes. What you would be looking at purchasing is the new Disney Incredi-Pass. This is the highest level tier of annual passes that they are currently offering and this is the level that I have. What you'll get is access to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks for 365 incredible days with no blockout dates. You'll also receive complimentary theme park parking and discounts on merchandise, food and select resort stays. On top of that, as a Disney Incredi-Pass holder, you'll be able to hold up to 5 park pass reservations at one time without a resort stay. This upgrade is awesome! Previously, we've only been able to make up to 3 park pass reservations at a time and it has made it a bit tricky for long weekends and weekly stays. The Disney Incredi-Pass really does offer so much, I think you will really enjoy it. 

    I hope this helps, Charlene. If you have any other questions about the Walt Disney World Annual Pass program or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. Have a great day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
