    We recently became DVC members and will be purchasing Annual Passes for our trip coming up in November. How long after we purchase them do we have to actually redeem them?

    Hi Charles,

    First off, let me be the first to congratulate you on joining Disney Vacation Club, and extend you a big "Welcome Home!" I hope your family enjoys your membership as much as I do. There is nothing like the feeling of "owning" a piece of the Magic. It is a complete thrill when stepping into your Walt Disney World Resort hotel and being welcomed "Home", especially for the first time as a newly minted Disney Vacation Club member. I am so excited for you to experience that this November!

    One of the great perks currently available for Disney Vacation Club members is the chance to purchase Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passes at a discounted rate. I am happy to report that if you were to purchase an Annual Pass now using your Disney Vacation Club discount, you would certainly be able to wait to activate it until your trip this coming November. In fact, you would have up until December 31, 2030 before your Annual Pass would expire. Hopefully by then you will have had many, many trips to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    As a new Disney Vacation Club member, I highly recommend that you review all of the great special events, discounts and experiences available this year exclusively for members as part of Membership Magic Ever After. In addition to all of the special events and discounts on food, merchandise, recreation and special tours, I also encourage you to take advantage of the Member Lounge at Epcot, which provides a great spot to relax, cool off, and recharge batteries (both yours as well as any mobile devices!)

    Magically Yours,
