    I'm a Florida resident and am going to purchase Gold passes for my family using the monthly payment option. Can I set up FastPass+ selections on our passes once they are purchased but before we get to the park to activate them?

    Hi, Heather! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for bringing your question to us! Becoming a member of the Annual Passholder family is always a great idea, especially when you are able to take advantage of the great Florida Resident rates! I firmly believe there is no such thing as too much magic. Your Annual Pass will give you the ability to experience as many magical moments as you can manage over this next year. Be sure to keep an eye out for new V.I.PASSHOLDER Nights that may be announced. There was one held at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park just last night and I hear it was full of splashtastic fun!

    Once you purchase the Annual Passes and link them to your My Disney Experience account, you will be able to immediately make FastPass+ selections for any upcoming visits to the theme parks. As an Annual Passholder, you can make these selections up to 30 days in advance for any day you plan to enter a theme park. Keep in mind that if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, then your FastPass+ selection window will expand out to 60 days before your date of check-in at the resort. Be sure to check the Special Offers page for any available Florida resident exclusive room discounts!

    When you visit Walt Disney World Resort for the first time after your Annual Pass purchase, you will need to show proof of residency for its activation. This can be in the form of a current and valid Florida driver's license or state-issued ID card with listed Florida address, or a valid Florida-based military ID. There are a few other acceptable ways of verifying residency, so be sure to check the list on the Florida Residency page for up-to-date information.

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions!

Hi, I'm Brandy, a speech pathologist and busy driver of daughters to marching band and dance events. My Annual Pass is used often to check out new Disney must-dos and resort changes. I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
