    Hi, I purchased two yearly passes but have not activated them yet. We have dvc reservation for November. Do I need to activate passes before I can purchase mvmcp tix and reserve park days? TIA

    Welcome to planDisney Marcy, and Welcome Home!

    As a fellow Disney Vacation Club Member and Disney Sorcerer Annual Passholder, I am excited to tell you to get ready for a year full of pixie dust. The perks of DVC Membership are already incredible but combine them with the benefits of having an Annual Pass, and you have magic in the making. Let's take a look at using your Annual Passes!

    I confirmed with a Cast Member you do not need to have your Annual Passes activated before making your Disney Park Pass reservations. However, you will need to make sure that your Annual Passes are linked to your My Disney Experience account. You will then activate your Passes on the first day of your visit to the theme parks. Make sure you have a photo ID available when activating your tickets. More good news, you can also go ahead and purchase your discounted tickets for select nights of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Guests of Disney Resort Hotels can go ahead and buy those tickets now! The discounted tickets are available in November for the following nights: November 9, 10, 13, 14, 16, 17, 26, 28, and 30th. You may also need to present your Annual Passholder card when checking in for the event. During your visit, make sure to check out holiday-themed makeovers of favorite attractions, including a very merry version of Jungle Cruise, the Jingle Cruise. 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney. We are here for all your Disney Vacation Club adventures!

    Enjoy making magical memories!
