    We are DVC owners planning on going November 2017 and again summer 2018, can we purchase annual passes now to be first used November 2017 and if so when would I link them to MDE? I assume they are valid for 1 yr from first activated at park?

    Hi Andrina!

    Now is a fantastic time to purchase your next Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passes! Not only do they make wonderful gifts for this holiday season but also because there is a current promotion offering 13-months for the price of 12! I'm happy to see that you are considering shopping now for your vacations in the future.

    You are exactly right. Feel free to purchase your Annual Pass now and can decide to wait until your November 2017, vacation to activate it. Your 13-month timeline would not begin until you stroll through those magical theme park gates for the first time. Please also keep in mind that you must stop by Guest Relations and present your Disney Vacation Club Member ID and another photo ID to activate your Annual Pass if you take advantage of our special pricing opportunity.

    I hope this is helpful! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
