    Hi! So excited! Saving to purch our first set of Annual Passes for my D (16) and I! I want to purchase by 5/2017, but we are not coming until 8/2018 And 7/2019. Will it be ok to not activate until then and can we still get discounts when we purch?

    Dear Emilia,

    Thanks for contacting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder question! 

    I am an Annual Passholder myself and I love to enjoy all of the benefits that it offers me! You absolutely can purchase your Annual Pass now and then when you arrive at the Parks for your scheduled visit in August, you can activate it either at any Walt Disney World theme park ticket window, or at a Guest Relations location at Disney Springs. When you go to pick it up, be sure to bring your valid photo ID (driver's license or passport)!

    That will get you started using your Annual Pass, and will also activate all of the benefits that you are entitled to. You can book Annual Passholder hotel rates ahead of that time, though. Right now there are some terrific hotel discounts available from February through June! I recommend that you check them out. 

    Have fun planning!
