    Ordered Annual Passes for our family. Received email with barcode. Is that all I need to get our passes activated? The email also mentioned bringing Pass Certificate for valid pass. Is there something else I get in the mail? thanks

    Hello Maggie!

    I am so excited for you and your family.   You will have one entire year to make magical memories.  I can't think of a better gift for you and your crew.

    I purchased an Annual Pass in January and also received my bar code in an email.  You can use the number under the bar code to link your Annual Passes in your My Disney Experience account.   This will not activate your Annual Pass, but it will allow you to make Disney FastPass+ selections before you arrive.   When you arrive a a Theme Park simply head to a Guest Relations window with your confirmation email and picture ID.   The Cast Member helping you will activate your Annual Passes and you will be set to enjoy the year of magic waiting for you.  Isn't that great?

    You will not receive anything else in the mail until you have used your Annual Pass for the first time.  Once you have used it, there will be an option to select a MagicBand for your Annual Pass in your My Disney Experience account.  You will receive these in the mail after you customize them.   

    I hope this has helped Maggie.  Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and we hope to see ya real soon with another question.
