    I am planning a trip to DW and I am thing about buying the Gold Annual Pass because I am a DVC member. Can I book fastpasss+ reservation's with only the pass certificate information? I won't be able to pick up the actual pass until I arrive in DW.

    Hi, Brigette! Thanks so very much for your question.

    The discounted Disney Vacation Club annual passes really make it so that our vacations stay magic. It's just one of the many DVC member benefits that we have been able to take advantage of since joining.

    With your purchase, you'll be given the voucher with your pass identification numbers. You will want to link those in your My Disney Experience account when you receive them. This won't activate the passes - so don't worry about the clock ticking until you actually get to the park and activate the pass. 

    Once you're all linked up, you'll be able to book your FastPass+ selections! You can book those 60 days prior to your arrival if you are staying at a Walt Disney World resort, including Disney Vacation Club resorts. But even if you don't have a resort reservation, with the annual pass, you can still book 30 days in advance. I have found that is an awesome thing if you happen to be doing a drive through in the Orlando area. Even though we live 1000 miles away, we have had occasion to be in Florida for family events that allow us to make a quick day trip to the theme parks - I love that I can go with FastPass+ times in my back pocket.

    I hope there are many more magical DVC vacations in your future!
