    I recently purchased a new annual pass. Is it valid for one year after the first day of use?

    Hey there, Kayla. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question and welcome to the Passholder family!

    Kayla, I've been a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder for years now and absolutely love it - and I think you will too! Some of my favorite perks include the complimentary theme park parking and discounts on food and merchandise throughout the year. Getting to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks practically anytime throughout the year is pretty fun too! 

    Your Walt Disney World Annual Pass expires one year from the first day of activation. Activation occurs the first time you use it to scan into one of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. From that date, you'll have 365 days to enjoy all of the magic you can savor until it expires. If you haven't activated your Walt Disney World Annual Pass yet and are seeing another date on your expiration date reflected, don't worry. This is how long you have to activate your Walt Disney World Annual Pass. As long as you activate it within one year of purchase you have nothing to worry about and once you use your pass for the first time, that new expiration date will be reflected. 

    I hope this helps clear up any confusion you might have had about the Walt Disney World Annual Pass program, Kayla. If you have any other questions throughout the year, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. Also, if you haven't already, head over and check out planDisney's new Instagram account. Over there you can follow along with panelists in the parks and stay up to date on all the latest news and announcements. It's a lot of fun. 

    Have a great day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
