    I need to activate an annual pass. Can this be done at the International Gateway of EPCOT?

    Hiya Chrysta,

    Welcome to planDisney and the Annual Passholder family! I love having an annual pass; it is like having extra magic in my pocket. Plus, convincing my husband that I must visit the Theme Parks for every vacation is much easier since my “tickets” are already paid for!

    I love entering EPCOT through the International Gateway entrance, and it is one of the many reasons I like to stay at Resort Hotels near Disney’s BoardWalk. The entrance tends to be less crowded than the main entrance, in my experience, and I also get to be closer to Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure!

    Great news, Chrysta! You can activate your Walt Disney World Resort annual pass at any ticket counter at the Theme Parks, including at the International Gateway entrance in EPCOT. Once you activate your annual pass, your next big decision will be how you begin your adventure. Are you heading to France, or is it UK all the way?!

    I hope you all have a magical time at Walt Disney World Resort and enjoy your year of magical perks! Before I let you go, if you want to save yourself a wait at the ticket counters, don’t forget you can also activate your annual pass at Disney Springs Guest Services. I do this most often because it saves me time in the morning and lets me do a little shopping!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
