    We are DVC members planning our Thanksgiving 2013 trip. We will be buying 5 DVC annual passes this time and I would like to soften the financial blow by buying in advance one at a time. How long do we have to redeem our vouchers for actual passes?

    Hello, Terri!

    Purchasing your Annual Passes using your Disney Vacation Club Member discount is a great idea; it's a smart way to save money by getting another trip to Walt Disney World in on the same pass. Smart move!

    Believe it or not, when you purchase your DVC discounted Annual Pass, you can activate it at any time. You'll receive a voucher in the mail that you can then take to any ticketing window at the parks; they'll activate your AP based on that date and will print your AP at that time. I know that some folks actually purchase their DVC Annual Passes prior to even needing them so that when ticket prices increase, they don't have to worry about the added expense. That voucher will last until you decide to activate your Annual Pass. 

    While I don't think that this Disney Vacation Club Member discount will be going away, you should keep in mind that we're always told that DVC Member Perks are subject to change at any time and can be removed at any time.

    Again, I think that your idea of spreading out your purchase to soften the financial blow is a great one. Be sure to put those vouchers in a safe place as you plan your spectacular Thanksgiving visit to Walt Disney World! (Don't forget to have your DVC Membership card, and be sure that each adult in your party brings a photo ID with him or her, proving that that person resides in the same house as the DVC Member.)

    Send more questions as you're planning, too. I'd love to help!
