    I have renewed my Walt Disney World Annual Pass. Do I need to pick up a new physical pass at Guest Relations or does my existing pass card simply renew so that I may continue to use it?

    Hiya, Doreen! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you stopped by with such a great question. I love getting to chat Disney with a fellow out-of-state Annual Passholder!

    It sounds as if the magic continues to call you, Doreen, and I am so excited to hear that you answered the call and renewed your Walt Disney World Annual Pass. The magic called me, too, and I have absolutely loved being in the Passholder family. Knowing that my family and I can return to our happy place time and time again truly brings joy and magic to my everyday life, and I'm thrilled for you to have another year of this joy and magic. Now, let's get to it!

    Even though you have renewed your Annual Pass, you will have to stop by a Guest Relations location outside of the theme parks or in Disney Springs to activate it before using it for the first time after renewal. On my summer visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth, I had forgotten that it was my first visit since renewal and was quickly reminded when I tapped into the turnstile at EPCOT's International Gateway and got a blinking blue light. Once I visited Guest Relations to activate my Pass, I got the green light, and it was magic time!

    Just be sure to bring a photo ID and your MagicBand or Disney MagicMobile Pass with you when you visit Guest Relations, and if you are a Disney Vacation Club Member with a discounted Disney Sorcerer Pass, don't forget your digital Membership Card. These are your keys to the magic, and I'm so excited for you to unlock another year!

    I hope this helps, Doreen, and I hope you'll stop by any time with any questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    Adventure is out there!
