    I'm thinking of buying annual passes, but don't know when I should purchase it. I would be buying them online, so how long do we have to take them down to WDW and redeem them?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Denise! Thank you for stopping by and bringing us your question.

    Denise, as an Annual Passholder, I can’t tell you enough how much I absolutely love being able to visit the Walt Disney World Resort often! I also love all the additional perks and benefits that come with my Annual Pass. Especially the current offer to help commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort, where you can enjoy a 20 percent discount on a list of 45 wonderful restaurants thoughtful the resort and select merchandise. Not a bad deal, huh? Being an AP is like being part of the most magical club in the world!

    Once you purchase your Annual Pass, there is no set date or timeframe to activate it. Your year won’t officially begin until you visit the parks and activate it. So, feel free to purchase in advance as you plan your next visit to mark your newly minted Annual Passholder status!

    I hope you do decide to become Annual Passholder and begin enjoying a year filled with magical visits to the place where magic is endless. You won’t regret it!

    See you real soon!
