    Hello - I am a DVC member with a trip this Oct. I purchased annual passes that I have not activated yet but they are showing in My Disney Experience page. Will I be able to make fast pass selections 60 days out? How will it know when I plan on activating?

    Hello Caroline!

    Congratulations on becoming Annual Passholders! We are also Passholders, and it is my favorite perk of being Disney Vacation Club Members. By planning two vacations within the year, I am really able to save on our vacations.

    Once you have your Annual Passes linked to each of your family members in My Disney Experience, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to your resort check-in. You should be able to make FastPass+ selections for the length of your stay. Your Annual Passes do not need to be activated to make your FastPass+ selections. 

    Once you arrive, you will need to visit a Guest Relations Window outside a theme park, or in Downtown Disney to have your Annual Passes activated. Be sure to have your all your Magic Bands, your Disney Vacation Club Membership Card and a Photo ID for each adult with you when you go to activate them. This process can take a few minutes so be sure to allow yourself some extra time. Hope you are getting excited for your vacation. I always get excited when it is time to make my FastPass+ selections because that means our trip is just around the corner!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
