    I recently bought an annual pass online. Do I have to print my will call confirmation or can I just show the email? Do they activate my pass once I pick It up?

    Hi, Riza!

    Welcome to the Annual Passholder family! You will enjoy all the benefits and discounts that you are going to receive with your pass. Add on a year of magical visits and you are a real winner!

    To receive and activate your Annual Pass, simply head to any ticket window once you are at Walt Disney World. While the email on your phone should be fine, print out the document if possible. It is just easier to hand over the print out along with your photo ID to receive your shiny new Annual Pass card. The whole process is quite fast, so within minutes you will have your activated Annual Pass and you can head straight into the parks.

    Make sure to keep your Annual Pass card with you. Show this card to get your discounts at dining locations, shops, and more. Discounts/locations are always subject to change, but I always just ask because you never know! You will also need to show your photo ID to receive any discounts, so keep that handy as well.

    Wishing you a year full of magical visits to Walt Disney World!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
