    our planed family trip to WDW is in January. We want to buy annual passes and plan to activate them when we get there. So I would like to know if we can make fast pass selections if our annual passes are not activated yet?

    Hello Amanda!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When I became a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder for the first time last year, I activated it on a date that started on a Walt Disney World Resort Vacation and one that will end before my Annual Pass expires.

    Becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder provides many benefits, but one that is not listed is the ability to book your initial FastPass+ selections even before you activate your Annual Pass.

    When you purchase Walt Disney World Annual Passes and assign them to individuals in your My Disney Experience Account, you will be able to make FastPass+ Selections 30 days in advance of the initial visit when you are planning to activate your Annual Pass. To activate an Annual Pass, you will need to show your Annual Pass Certificate(you can even print it off online, if you have not received it through the mail) and Photo Identification at any Theme Park Ticket Window.

    Any FastPass+ Selections you make will not work until your Annual Pass is activated. If you have any difficulty booking your FastPass+ Selections ahead of time, you may speak with a Cast Member at (407) 560-7277.

    You can secure up to 3 FastPass+ Selections for 1 park per day for up to 7 days using a linked Annual Pass. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort during your stay you can make up to 7 days of FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance of your vacation.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
