    I am interested in the Silver annual pass for my October 2018 trip. If I buy the pass now (on monthly payments) will my year start now? or when we visit in Oct. I want to buy it now to book hotel and fast passes. Thanks!

    Hey Michelle!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited to answer a fellow Florida Resident’s question today! Thank you for sending us your great question about Walt Disney World Resort annual passes.

    Michelle, being a Walt Disney World Resort annual passholder is truly magical! As an annual passholder myself, I often enjoy the many benefits and discounts associated to my annual pass. I am fairly certain you will as well!

    Regardless of when you purchase your annual pass, the effective date of your annual pass will be the date you activate it, in person, at Walt Disney World Resort. In order to activate your annual pass, please bring your exchange certificate and a valid photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport, to one of the following locations:

       •  Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket window
       •  Guest Relations location
       •  Disney Springs Guest Relations location

    Michelle, you will be able to enjoy many of the benefits of being an annual passholder as soon as you purchase your annual pass — whether or not you have activated it in person! Don't forget to check out the special offers currently available for Florida Residents as well.

    If you have any additional questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are all EARS!
