    I am interested in purchasing an Annual pass but was wondering if it starts the day you purchase it or the day you enter the parks for the first time. I would like to purchase it asap, but I wont be going to the parks til January and want to make the most

    Hello Alissa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Becoming a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder was a  cost-effective decision that opened up a magical year of experiences for me. I was sure to take advantage of every discount and benefit afforded to Annual Passholders to offset the initial cost and I was pretty effective.

    When you purchase your Annual Pass online, you are provided a Confirmation Number and voucher to be presented to a Theme Park Ticket Window or at Disney Springs Guests Relations for activation. Once you enter a Theme Park after said activation, your year of magical visits begins and not a minute before.

    You can use the Confirmation Number you are provided when you purchase your Annual Pass to link to your My Disney Experience Account and begin planning your years of magical adventures. Again, while it is linked to your My Disney Experience Account, it is not activated until you enter a Theme Park after in-person activation.

    Have a Magical Year of Visit!
