    Hello!!! I am contemplating getting the annual passes. I will be going to WDW from dec 30-jan 5 and then again in April. Do you know what the block out dates for 2018 are yet?

    Hi, Heather!

    When you are planning 2 trips to Walt Disney World within 12 months, it is always a good idea to consider getting an Annual Pass. Not only can it be a cheaper way to cover your park tickets, the benefits and discounts really add up! Just the 20% shopping discount makes an Annual Pass a great value in my book!

    With the Disney Platinum Pass, there are no blockout dates to worry about. That means a full 365 days of magic are yours, even during the holidays or spring break.

    If you choose to get an Annual Pass, you can purchase it ahead of time online and link it to your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you to book your FastPass+ selections and qualify for any Annual Pass room discounts that might be offered. When purchasing, you will be emailed an Exchange Certificate that you can take to any ticket window or Guest Services once you arrive at Walt Disney World. Your expiration date for your Annual Pass will be 1 year from the activation date, not from date of purchase.

    Wishing you 365 days of magical fun with your Walt Disney World Annual Pass!
