    I want to buy Annual Passholder but already have date based tickets for my family. How do I make sure that on my next visit the date based tickets are used and not the AP (I don't want to activate for a couple months)?

    Hi Ashley and welcome to planDisney!

    Being a Florida resident and a Walt Disney World Passholder sure has its perks!  We love to pop over for day trips since we live so close to the magic.  I was really excited yesterday when the Disney Parks Blog posted the menus from the Holiday Kitchens for EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays and I immediately made my theme park reservations for later this month to try out some of the delicious offerings.

    You have come to the right place with your question!  I have the opposite situation as you as I have some tickets in my account that I don't want to use just yet since I have a Walt Disney World annual pass.  I spoke with a friendly Cast Member to make sure I give you the correct information and was told that if when you purchased your tickets, you had to make a theme park reservation to go along with them, your tickets will be pulled first.  You can also visit Guest Relations to have them prioritize your tickets so your annual pass doesn't activate unexpectedly.  After you enter a theme park on your next visit, you can take a look at your tickets on the My Disney Experience Mobile App to make sure that your tickets were used and not your pass.  To take a look at your tickets, click on the three lines on the bottom right of the app and then click on "Tickets and Passes".  Swipe to view all the tickets and passes linked to your account.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions. 

    Have a magical day!
