    If I were to purchase an annual pass on 12/24/2017 and start using it on 12/25/2017. Does it mean I can use it on any day between 12/25/2017 and 12/24/2018 (excluding black out days) ?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel Khang! 

    I’m thrilled to learn you are getting ready to join the magical Annual Passholder family! As a fellow Annual Passholder myself, allow me to welcome you to a new yEAR filled with magic, pixie dust, and memories.

    Khang, you are correct! You can purchase your AP anytime, but your Annual Pass calendar year doesn’t begin until you activate it upon your first visit. On that day, we’ll call it activation day, your magical, fun-filled year begins and you can begin enjoying the magic as often as you like. 

    Did you know your My Disney Experience mobile app has your annual pass block out calendar dates right on the app? It’s an easy click away to see which days you can enjoy the magic before you go. Simply log into the app, select your character and under Park Info & Entry, scroll until you see AnnualPass Blockouts for up-to-date calendar info.  

    There are so many perks to being an AP, like exclusive special offers, merchandise and dining discounts, assigned entrances to all four theme parks. But hands down, the best benefit is getting to enjoy the magic often! 

    Pro-tip! Be sure to bookmark the Annual Passholder benefits and discounts page to your smart device. I love having that information handy at each visit so I can take advantage of all the great offers on the go, while I’m enjoying the magic! 

    I hope you have the most magical yEAR yet! See ya real soon,
