    Just purchased annual passes for the first time. Can we pick them up the evening before we plan on visiting the park. We are arriving on a Sunday but passes are not valid until Monday. Looking to save some time .

    Hi there, Amber!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thanks for asking this great question. I’m happy to hear you’re on your way to enjoying a year full of magical visits to the Disneyland Resort with an Annual Passport!

    If you purchased your passes online, you should have received a confirmation email that includes Disney eTickets to print yourself at home. With these tickets, you can go directly to the Main Entrance turnstiles upon arrival to begin your theme park adventures. Feel free to visit a Disneyland Resort Main Entrance Ticket Booth to collect your Annual Passport cards whenever it’s most convenient for you, whether it is the night before you plan to enter the parks or sometime during the first day your Annual Passports are active. 

    Keep in mind that 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 valuable Annual Passholder benefits available to you. I hope this information is helpful, Amber. Please feel free to stop by again with any other vacation planning questions you may have as your pixie-dusted year of visits to the Happiest Place on Earth begins!

    Wishing you magic,
