    Can I buy DVC discounted annual passes for my children if I'm not travelling to Disney with them?

    Hi Jennifer,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so glad that you stopped by with a question for us!

    The discount on Annual Passes is a great perk for Disney Vacation Club Members, so I can see why you would want to take advantage of that offer. As a Member, you can purchase these for yourself and your immediate family living in the same household. In order to activate your Annual Pass, Members must present a photo ID along with their Disney Vacation Club Membership card at Guest Services at one of the theme parks or at Disney Springs. So if you wanted to buy Annual Passes for your children, then they would need their own photo ID (such as a drivers license) showing the same address as yours in order to activate their pass at the park. They would also need to have a copy of your photo ID and your Membership card with them. 

    If your children aren't old enough to have a photo ID, then unfortunately it won't be possible to activate their passes without you being present. Most all of the special offers and discounts require proof of membership, so keep that in mind too in case you were hoping to let your children enjoy any other savings on their upcoming trip. 

    I hope this helps to answer your question and if we can do anything else, just let us know. We are always happy to assist you!
