    I'm going to WDW in May & Feb so I bought an annual pass. I've seen where you can pre-register for the half marathon if you have an annual pass. Will I be able to do that or am i not considered a passholder until I visit WDW?

    Hi Lauren!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I had a fellow panelist just run into this same situation recently when trying to register for the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, so I'm glad you brought this question to us for clarification!

    When you purchase an Annual Pass online it is not valid for early registration until it has been activated when you visit Walt Disney World. So after your visit in May, you'll be able to register early. For future reference, these are the early registration dates for Annual Passholders. While I understand this is certainly a great perk to have, I'm glad to let you know if you are ready to go when the general registration opens up, I think you'll find registration should still be relatively easy! If you haven't done so already, I'd recommend creating an Active.com account beforehand so that your information already populates. I always set a reminder on my phone so I'm on my computer ready to go at noon EST of registration date.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions and congratulations on officially becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder!
