    We plan to purchase annual passes for trips to Disneyland in Oct ‘19 & Mar ‘20. Can I purchase the APs online now to secure AP-discounted DL Resort hotel reservations prior to physically activating the APs in the parks in Oct?

    Aloha, Donna!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. How smart of you to plan two fantastic trips to the Disneyland Resort and purchase Annual Passports! Not only will this be a more economical way to purchase tickets for your trips, but you will also get to take advantage of great perks like discounts on shopping and dining!

    I'm happy to tell you that you are more than welcome to purchase your Annual Passport prior to arrival to take advantage of special offers for Passholders like discounted rates at Disneyland Resort Hotels if available. To do this, though, you will need to make your Disneyland Resort Hotel room reservation by phone at (714) 956-6425. Prior to checking in at the hotel, you would need to pick up your Annual Passport at the Main Entrance ticket booths to show when checking in. If you do not have your Passport at check in, you will not be given a discounted rate even if you booked it over the phone. This is because the Cast Member at the hotel will need to attach your Annual Passholder ID found on your pass to your reservation. I hope this helps!

    Before you arrive, I suggest taking a look at all the great discounts available for Passholders on this handy chart. You can even take advantage of discounts on Tours such as the popular "Walk in Walt's Disneyland Footsteps" Guided Tour. This is such a great way to learn a little bit more about the creation of the Happiest Place on Earth as well as see some areas that are normally not available to Guests!
