    We are new annual passholders (yay!) and will be headed to the parks in November to celebrate our son’s birthday. We have purchased the passes but not activated them yet. Can we activate them at our Disney resort upon check in?

    Hi there, Leah!

    Welcome to planDisney, and welcome to the Annual Passholder family! Woohoo! There are a lot of things in life that make me happy, but having nearly unlimited access to the Most Magical Place on Earth is definitely on the highlight reel. You are going to love all of the benefits, too. I love parking at the theme parks at no additional cost and receiving discounts on select food and merchandise around property. 

    While you are unable to activate your new annual passes at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can activate them at a theme park or at the Disney Springs Disney Ticket Center. Once they’re activated, you officially have your key to the kingdom for the year (from your activation date)!

    AN EXTRA GEM: I hope that your son has the BEST birthday celebration at Walt Disney World Resort later this month! Be sure to ask for complimentary celebration buttons from your Disney Resort hotel’s front desk or from any of the four theme parks’ Guests Services areas. My kiddos love proudly wearing their buttons around the parks, and sometimes, they get a bit of pixie dust, too.

    If you have any other questions about your upcoming vacation, Leah, please revisit us here at planDisney. I’m all ears! 

    Magic always,
