    If I give my deposit to start our yearly passes. Do we automatically get admission to the parks?

    Hi Helin,
    So glad you could join us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! 

    I'm looking at your question and I'm going to make an assumption to give you an answer.  I'm going to assume that you're planning on using a payment plan for your Florida Resident Annual Passes that you're going to purchase in the future.  Congratulations!  I love being an Annual Passholder-there are so many wonderful perks that come with your pass.

    When you purchase your Annual Passes for the first time when using a payment plan, you are required to pay a deposit (generally equal to a single day admission ticket); the remainder of the cost is split up into eleven monthly payments.  You will sign your contract, link your credit card, and off you go to enjoy all the fun and amazing things to experience in the theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort. Yes, you can enter the parks and explore to your heart's desire the first day that you purchase your passes.  You'll get complimentary theme park parking (be sure to ask for a receipt if you park in a theme park parking lot prior to purchasing your pass-you will receive a refund for your parking fees for the day), discounts on select merchandise and select dining, plus discounts on hotel stays during certain times of year and much, much more!

    Helin, I hope I was able to answer your question.  Enjoy your Annual Pass!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
