    I purchased annual passes for me and my husband for our trip in may - we are also going to wdw in october and november I don't know what the procedure is from here to "activate" and use.

    Hi Walter,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for stopping by with another question about Annual Passes. I'm thrilled you and your husband are joining the Passholder family! I see that my friend Wilma gave you a great answer about Tables in Wonderland. It looks like you've researched how to get the most out of your new Annual Pass. 

    One of the last steps is to activate your new Annual Pass. You can activate your pass at Guest Relations locations, including Guest Relations at Disney Springs, and Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket windows. The day you activate your pass will become your expiration date in the next year. Depending on your schedule you may want to activate the pass on your first visit to one of the theme parks or you might want to visit Disney Springs on your arrival day and activate it there. They will ask to see a valid ID to confirm who you are and will give you a card you will use for discounts. 

    I also recommend checking out the Passholder Program. I set reminders to check the program before my vacation because it's the best place to find out about extras, discounts, and limited-time offers. I frequently forget how many benefits there are for being a passholder! 

    Walter, thank you for visiting us with another great question. I hope you'll let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions!
    Wishing you a year of magical visits,
    Amy H.
