    If I buy my annual passes online how long does it take for to receive them and how do I receive them?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kevin!

    I’m so excited you’re considering joining the magical Annual Passholder family! There are so many enchanted benefits that come with having an AP. But the best of all is getting to enjoy the magic more often!

    Kevin, when you purchase your Annual Pass online you will be able to link in to your My Disney Experience account and start planning your next visit. The pass won’t be active until you first use it. But once it’s linked, you can go ahead and start booking FastPass+ for any upcoming visits. You’ll be able to book up to 7-days of FastPass+ up to 30-days in advance. If you’re staying on property during your visit, you can reserve those up to 60-days in advance.

    On your first visit as an Annual Passholder, be sure to have valid ID for proof of Florida Residency if you purchased a Florida Resident Annual Pass. Upon activation, you will receive your Annual Passholder card that you can use to enjoy the benefits and discounts that come with your pass.

    Once your AP is active, you will be able to log into your My Disney Experience account and customize your MagicBand what will be shipped to you to use on a future visit. If you have MagicBands from a previous visit that are linked to your My Disney Experience account, those will work once you link your Annual Pass.

    I hope this helps answer your question. Be sure to bookmark the AP benefits and discounts page to your mobile device so you can access it during your visits and enjoy all the magical perks of your Annual Pass.

    See ya real soon!  ~Emille
