    What is the effective date for an annual pass renewal? I assume it is the previous date of expiration. Can you negotiate for a 60-90 day gap before restarting?

    Hello Fredrick,

    As a fellow Annual Passholder, I would be pleased to help you out with your question. I hope you are currently enjoying all of the special enhanced benefits and Passholder Discounts offered this yEAR in celebration of the 45th Anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort! With up to 20% off select dining and merchandise, it is a fabulous time to be a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder. Hurry as these special enhanced discounts are currently scheduled to end on September 30, 2017.

    Fredrick, when it comes time to renew your Annual Pass, you will have a 90 day window to do so. Annual Passes can be renewed up to 60 days prior to the Anniversary Date, or 30 days thereafter. Whatever date you chose to renew, the effective date for your new Annual Pass will be the Anniversary Date, or expiry date of your old Annual Pass. Unfortunately it is currently not be possible to obtain a gap in the activation of your new Annual Pass if you wish to take advantage of the special reduced rate for Annual Pass renewals.

    Don't forget that you can renew your Annual Pass online, over the phone by calling  (407) 560-PASS or (407) 560-7277, or at any Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket window or Disney Springs Guest Relations location.

    I hope this information is helpful to you, Fredrick. Should you have any other questions, please let us know. Have a Magical Day!
