    If you buy an annual ticket is the start date the first day you use it? Can you book fast passes in advance prior to activating?

    Hi Victoria, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    As a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder, I can confirm that the date that you first use your Annual Pass to enter a Theme Park becomes your Pass’ “anniversary” date, regardless of when you first purchased it. 

    You can absolutely make your FastPass+ selections prior to your first visit with your Annual Pass. If you purchased it online, you will be able to link it to your My Disney Experience account. Once you’ve linked it, then you’ll be able to make your FastPass+ selections, just as if it was a fully activated pass. If you have any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact Walt Disney World Resort for assistance. 

    Have a Magical Day,
