    If I purchase a silver annual pass online with the monthy payment plan will my year start when I buy online or the first day I go to Disney? I want to go ahead and buy so I can set fast passes but I don't want my time to start.

    Hi Katrina! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Isn’t it a magical feeling knowing that you are about to purchase an Annual Pass? I love knowing that I will have access to all of the magic all throughout the yEAR! Don’t forget that certain Annual Pass plans do have blackout dates so it is important to keep those dates in mind when you are planning your visits to the Theme Parks. 

    Whenever you purchase an Annual Pass it is my understanding that the pass will not be activated until you use the pass. So my experience has been that the day that I actually enter one of the parks is the day that the Annual Pass will be active and will expire one year from that date.

    I hope that you have a magical time. Happy Planning!
