    Hi! I just recently moved to Orlando and want to buy an annual pass. I know they are not currently selling them but if I were to buy one off a family member who has not activated theirs yet can I activate it under my name?

    Hi there, Taylor! Congratulations on your recent move! I know all about chilly Pennsylvania winters, and I don't blame you one bit for heading to the Sunshine State. I think the best way to celebrate a big event is by treating yourself to a Walt Disney World Annual Pass!

    The good news is that since your family member has not activated their Annual Pass yet, they may indeed transfer it to you; Disney calls this a Paperless Ticket Transfer. First, you'll want to make sure you are on their Family & Friends list (if not, the Walt Disney World website has easy to follow instructions). Next, have them go to the "My Plans, Reservations and Tickets" section of their My Disney Experience account (or "Tickets and Passes" in the mobile app), and click on the Tickets & Memory Maker link. Then, locate the Annual Pass they intend to transfer to you, and select the "Reassign Ticket" link to the right (it will have a drop-down box). Just like magic, the Pass will be assigned to you....Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo!  This is usually a quick and easy process, but if you run into issues along the way, give the Internet Help Desk a call at (407) 939-4357.

    A great place to break in that Annual Pass would be the Taste of Epcot International Food and Wine Festival. This year, the Global Marketplaces' menus can be found on the My Disney Experience Mobile app. One thing I can't wait to try is the Impossible Meatball from the Earth Eats Booth! Just note that you'll need to access the Disney Park Pass system to make a park reservation before your visit. 

    Thanks for visiting planDisney with your question, Taylor! If there's anything else we can help you with, remember we're all ears!
