    Can I buy annual passes for 2019 now (9/27/17)? When do they get activated also, the first time you enter a park or when you link them to your account? Thanks!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Joy Marie! I’m glad you’re hEAR, and I’m elated to hear that you are looking at purchasing an Annual Pass! I purchased my first pass in January of 2017 and I’m never looking back. From the Passholder discounts and benefits to the dedicated Walt Disney World Resort Parks entrance line, it’s better than I ever dreamed.

    You can purchase your Annual Pass at any time and then activate it when you decide to visit the parks, especially if you want to “lock in” a good rate or special offer. A pass purchased in 2017 won’t expire due to lack of activation until 2030! When it comes time to travel to Florida, you’ll bring your printed out confirmation as well as a Photo ID to a Guest Services and Ticket Window (I activated mine at Magic Kingdom’s ticket windows as fireworks blazed overhead. It was so exciting!) and activate your pass in person. You’ll then be given your golden yellow AP card, which is what you will use anytime you would like to elect your benefits. If you are using your same My Disney Experience email address to purchase your AP (and are logged in), then your Annual Pass will be automatically linked to your profile. If you have any issues you can call to speak with a Cast Member at (407) 560-7277.

    I just know you’ll love your Annual Pass, and if you’re like me, it will have paid for itself in just a month or so. It’s a fabulous way to celebrate your Disneyside! Please let me know if you have any more questions about your upcoming trip. ~ Lindsey P.
