    Can I purchase 1 annual pass and book my reservations, etc for my entire family? How do I purchase an annual pass while I am NOT at Disney?

    Hi Nanci!

    Thanks for swinging by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question about Annual Passes. I love being an Annual Passholder at Walt Disney World Resort and I bet you will, too. There's nothing quite like the feeling that you could visit any of the Disney theme parks in Orlando as often as you want for a whole year!

    You don't have to be on Walt Disney World Resort property to buy an Annual Pass. In fact, I purchased my pass last September from the comfort of my own home. Once you decide which Annual Pass is the right one for you, just click on the pass you have chosen and the website will walk you through the process to purchase one.

    Often, Annual Passholders can reserve guest rooms at a discounted rate. Once you connect your Annual Pass number to your My Disney Experience account, you can reserve the guest room of your choice and start booking all your dining reservations 180 days in advance of your check-in date by calling (407) WDW-DINE, or (407) 939-3463. These dining reservations can cover everyone in your family.

    As a guest with a reservation at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will also be able to make your FastPass+ reservations 60 days prior to your arrival. However, unless those traveling with you have theme park admission tickets linked to them in My Disney Experience, you will only be able to make FastPass+ reservations for you. So they should purchase their theme park tickets prior to that date if you want to book those FastPass+ times together.

    Don't hesitate to let us know if you have additional planning questions. My friends and I here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel would love to help!
