    I want to purchase annual passes for my family. I know there is a down payment due day of purchase, when will the first monthly payment be taken out? Same day, the next month? Thanks!

    Hi, Aisha!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for bringing us your Disneyland Resort question. I’m so glad to hear you want to enjoy a year full of magical visits to the Happiest Place on Earth with Annual Passports for your family!

    California residents can purchase Annual Passports with monthly payments. You’ll pay an initial deposit and your credit card information will be kept on file for the monthly payment plan charges, which will be debited from your account automatically around the same day each month. In my experience, the first payment is charged within a couple days after you pay the deposit, and then once a month after that.

    The purchase can be made either online or in person at the Disneyland Resort, but buying online from home can save time. You’ll receive a confirmation email that includes Disney eTickets to print yourself. With these tickets, you can go directly to the Main Entrance turnstiles to begin your theme park adventures and visit a Disneyland Resort Main Entrance Ticket Booth to collect your Annual Passport cards whenever it’s convenient for you. If you purchase your Annual Passports online, they will become active on the first day you enter a Disneyland Resort theme park using the passes.

    Once you become an Annual Passholder, you can sign in or create an account on and then visit Annual Passholders Today to view the details of your Annual Passport and explore the Annual Passholder benefits available to you. I hope this information is helpful, Aisha. Please feel free to stop by again with other vacation planning questions you may have!

    Wishing you magic,
