    Hello! I am going to buy my family WDW annual passes, and I am a DVC member. My daughter has the opportunity to go with a friend before we go as a family, and I was wondering if I have to be present to activate her annual pass since I bought it? She’s 21

    Hi Sandy!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. A gift to the ‘World is such a magical gift for your daughter. I am sure it will be the gateway to many happy memories!

    As a Disney Vacation Club Member, you are eligible for fantastic Member perks, including discounts on certain Walt Disney World Resort Passes. Bonus (!), you get to share your love of the Mouse with others, as long as they are members of your immediate household.

    I’m assuming you are planning to purchase your Annual Passes online. Once you’ve decided which pass to buy for your daughter, head to “Guest Checkout.” There, you will find a dropdown menu where you can enter your daughter’s information, including name and address. The address that you enter needs to match the address that she has on her picture I.D. When she picks up her ticket at any Main Entrance ticket window (no need for you to be there!), she will need to show her Disney Vacation Club Membership Card, the I.D. with matching address, and the confirmation number. Make sure that the address on her I.D. matches your home address, as that will also help determine her Disney Vacation Club discount eligibility

    Since she’s planning on visiting before the family, you might want to consider purchasing the ticket in advance with enough time for her to make FastPass+ selections. If she’s staying on property, she can pick her “skip the line” picks 60 days before her stay. If not, the FastPass+ window opens up 30 days before her visit. All she needs to do is link her pass to her My Disney Experience account, and then make her choices!

    Sandy, if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to come back. We are all EARs!
