    I'm buying an annual pass as a gift. Will the person receiving it get an actual pass in the mail, or just an email with the confirmation # to bring to Disney along with photon ID?

    Hello Brent!

    I want to be your friend!  I can't think of a better gift for a Disney lover than a year full of making memories at Walt Disney World.   An Annual Pass is a practically perfect present.

    If you purchase the Annual Pass as a gift, you (or the recipient)  will receive a confirmation email.   In this email will be a bar code along with a confirmation number.   This confirmation number can be used to link the Annual Pass to a My Disney Experience account.   Once this is done the Guest will be able to make Disney FastPass+ selections before the pass is activated.    In order to pick up the pass and activate it, your friend will need to have the confirmation number and picture ID with a matching address of the one you provided for them when you made the purchase.   This can be done at a ticket or Guest Relations window.   Once they use the Annual Pass for the first time, they will be given an option in My Disney Experience to customize a MagicBand to use for the year with their pass.

    I hope this has helped, Brent.   Visit us again with any additional questions you may have about visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth.
