    I'm a DVC member and want to purchase annual passes. How far in advance do I need to do this? Are the certificates sent by mail or email?

    Hi Kathryn,

    Thanks for joining us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    We love the freedom of a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass. Gone are the days when you had to keep track of used "days" for each theme park admission ticket for your family. Instead, you can feel free to pop in and out of the theme parks as you please! In fact, just recently, I visited Magic Kingdom Park to pick up a souvenir for my daughter that she was really hoping to have, and then turned to leave! I was there for under 10 minutes. I left with the biggest smile on my face.

    If you purchase your Walt Disney World Annual Pass online while logged-in your My Disney Experience Account, you could visit a theme park for the first time that very day. Just keep in mind that you will need to swing by a convenient Guest Relations location to verify your Disney Vacation Club Membership if you plan to take advantage of the incredible savings we are offered for our Annual Passes. 

    If you will be staying on property for your next visit and would like to schedule your FastPass+ Selections as early as possible for the greatest availability, be sure to purchase your theme park admission at least 60-days in advance. That way, once you are 60-days from the first day of your visit, you can log-in and schedule away!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
