    After decades of WDW visits, I'm finally a new Annual Passholder! I have the Pixie Dust pass for FL residents. I won't activate it for a couple of months, but will I be able to use passholder discounts and get a magnet before activating the pass?

    Hiya Elaine, and Welcome back to planDisney! Thanks so much for sending us another question. We're always happy to help guests like you plan visits to The Most Magical Place on Earth

    Congratulations on becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder! Hooray!! As a fellow annual passholder, I can say that it's so fun to visit the magic often! I spoke with a cast member about receiving your Pixie Dust Annual Pass discount and the magnet prior to activating your annual pass. In order to use your annual passholder discount for dining and merchandise, you will need to present the physical annual pass. This is also the case for the annual passholder magnet. I was told that when you get your annual pass card, it is activated at that time. The only exception is if you reserve a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. You can do this in advance of receiving and activating your annual pass, however, you will need to present it at the time of check-in. You can activate your annual pass at any of the theme parks or at Disney Springs. I would recommend weighing your options for when you want to activate your annual pass. If you do not plan to reserve a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel or enter the theme parks with it on your upcoming visit, you might want to wait. When you start using your annual pass, be sure to bring a photo ID with you as cast members will ask you to provide it.

    As you are planning, please visit planDisney again if you have any additional questions. In the meantime, I'm wishing you many pixie-dusted vacations as an annual passholder! The magic awaits you and we can't wait to see ya real soon!
