    after I renew my annual pass, do I still need to activate it first at guest relations? I am not a florida resident.

    Hi Doris!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   Don't you just love your Walt Disney World Annual Pass?  I adore mine.  Not only do I get 365 days of admission to the Most Magical Place on Earth, I also receive some pretty amazing discounts on merchandise, Disney Resort hotel stays, dining and tours.   I love it.   It's my pleasure to help answer your question today.

    You certainly can renew your Annual Pass online up to 60 days prior to your current expiration or up to 30 days after it expires.    Once you renew you will need to visit a ticket window or Guest Relations  at Walt Disney World in order to receive your new yellow Annual Pass Card.  This card will be necessary if you wish to use your discounts and complimentary Theme Park parking that is a benefit given to Annual Passholders.   This yellow card can also be used to enter the Theme Parks should you ever forget your Magic Band.  ( I may have forgotten mine once or twice in the past.)   You can also scan this card to have Disney's PhotoPass Service pictures added to your complimentary Memory Maker downloads you receive as an Annual Passholder.   

    I hope this has helped, and I hope you enjoy another magical year of making memories at Walt Disney World with your Annual Pass renewal.   Please stop in again anytime you have another question.   Helping fellow Guests is what we enjoy most.

    Dream as Dreamers Do,
