    Looking to purchase annual passes for my 2 adult daughters for christmas. This needs to be a surprise until they open their gift. Can I purchase them in their names without them knowing or can I purchase more than one in my name they transfer them?

    Hey there, Denise! Welcome to planDisney. Giving the gift of magic for an entire year is such a treat, I know your daughters are going to be very excited. 

    Denise, I went ahead and did some digging on this because I wasn't too sure on how you'd be able to keep it a secret from your daughters and I certainly didn't want to be the one to ruin the surprise. I spoke with a Cast Member today who deals directly with the sale of new Walt Disney World Annual Passes and they suggested that you actually call to purchase the new annual passes directly over the phone.

    If you do it online, you'll have to select someone to link it to. If your daughters have their own MyDisneyExperience account already set up, which I am thinking they do, then they would be able to see their new tickets linked in their account if they looked. By calling and purchasing over the phone, you are given confirmation numbers for the new tickets. You don't have to link these confirmation codes to a MyDisneyExperience account right away.  Once you've given your daughters their gift, they can go ahead and use that confirmation number to link their new tickets to their account. The number to call to purchase new Walt Disney World Annual Passes over the phone is 407-939-7679. I encourage you to call in the morning as the call centers are experiencing higher than normal call volume which is leading to longer wait times lately. This will greatly reduce your on-hold time when you are ready to purchase.

    I hope this helps, Denise. If you have any other questions about your purchase or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Have a great day!

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
