    When we buy a new annual pass can we make park reservations immediately?

    Hi there, Laura! Thanks for stopping by to see us here at planDisney!

    First and foremost, I'd like to offer you a big warm Olaf-style welcome to the Annual Passholder family! I, too, am an Annual Passholder at the Walt Disney World Resort and I must say.. it makes our Disney vacations as easy as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo! Not only do we receive special offers and discounts, but we're part of one big Disney-loving family!

    Laura, I love being the one to deliver magical news! So the answer to your question is yes! You can make theme park reservations shortly after purchasing your Annual Pass. You'll just have to make sure it's linked with your My Disney Experience Account before doing so. There is a separate place for Annual Passholders to make their theme park reservations, so it may be just slightly different than the steps you've followed in the past with other theme park tickets.

    Even though you'll be holding theme park reservations, your Annual Pass does not activate by doing so. You'll still have to stop by a Guest Relations location to activate your pass before using it to enter the theme parks.

    I hope this helps answer your question today, Laura! But the bigger question here is.. do you like magnets? Annual Passholder magnets are serious business in our little community! Now offered via virtual queue at select locations, you'll be able to collect your Annual Passholder magnet while supplies last while visiting Walt Disney World! Ka-Chow!

    Have a magical day,
