    I'm planning on buying Florida resident annual passes online this week. If I go to Disney the next Day, can I use the free parking on my way to pick up the tickets, or will I need to pay for parking the first time? Thanks for your help!

    Hi William!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Congratulations on (soon) becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder!  I love getting my annual pass every year. There are so many benefits to it, but it also emotionally just makes me happy to know that I am connected to Disney and other passholders in that way. 

    Since you will have already paid for your annual pass, you should not have to pay for parking. You can explain your situation to the Cast Member at the park entrance. I recommend having your My Disney Experience app open to show them where it says you are an Annual Passholder.  That should be plenty of evidence for them to let you through. I have often used the app to get my AP discount when I don't have my card with me. 

    I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions and enjoy your new annual pass!
