    I currently have an Annual Pass that is set to expire on May 24. If I renew the pass, when will the 1-year timeframe start? Does it start on the date of renewal or the first day of use in the parks?

    Hi Sarah,

    Being an Annual Passholder is your ticket to a world of continued joy and excitement throughout the year. Not only do you get access to the magic of the Walt Disney World Resort all year round, but you also unlock special Passholder discounts and perks that make every visit even more special. From exclusive merchandise discounts to discounts on some amazing Enchanting Extras experiences and even special events like V.I.Passholder days, there's always something extra to look forward to as a Passholder.

    Speaking of V.I.Passholder days, they're an incredible opportunity to enjoy the parks with a touch of extra magic, reserved just for Passholders like you. These events often feature unique experiences like our own personal Passholder lounge in EPCOT to a special Stitch Passholder magnet. 

    When you renew your Annual Pass, your Annual Pass will begin on the day your old pass expires, ensuring there's no gap in your magical adventures. This allows you to dive back into the wonder of Disney whenever you're ready.

    And when it comes time to renew your pass, Disney makes sure the process is as seamless as a fairy tale. You can start renewing your Walt Disney World Annual Pass 60 days before your current pass expires, and you have up to 30 days after your anniversary date to receive a special renewal benefit. Pass upgrade or renewal is subject to availability, so be sure to mark your calendar and secure your spot in the magic before it's too late.

    Remember, if you haven't renewed by the 30th day after your anniversary date, you'll need to purchase a new Annual Pass. But fear not, for whether you're renewing, upgrading, or purchasing anew, the magic of Disney awaits.

    Here's to continued magic and endless adventures with your Annual Pass. May each visit be filled with laughter, joy, and memories that last a lifetime!
