    My family would like to buy annual passes but not actually start using them until the end of July. Can I buy them now but not actually start our year until July?

    Hello There, Stacey!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am thrilled to answer your fantastic question about Walt Disney World Resort annual passes.

    Stacey, as an annual passholder myself, I can tell you that you have made a great choice in becoming a Walt Disney World Resort annual passholder. For us, the benefits and discounts that accompany our annual passes are absolutely priceless! We especially enjoy the dining and merchandise discounts, and feel that they really make renewing our annual passes year after year worth it.

    Yes, you can buy your annual passes now and begin your annual pass year in July. In fact, your annual passes will not be active until you activate them, in person, at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Your annual pass will become “active” when you activate them at one of the following locations:

      Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket window
      Guest Relations location
      Disney Springs Guest Relations

    Stacey, if you have additional questions about becoming an annual passholder or about traveling to Walt Disney World Resort, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We are all ears!
