    We have reservations in Jan. & Feb. 2022 and because of the uncertain times we live in my question is: If I buy Admission Tickets &/or Annual Passes now (in order to be able to make park entrance & dining reservations), when are they activated?

    Hi David!

    I so hope you will be able to visit Walt Disney World this winter! The cool weather and lack of holiday crowds make these months a lovely time for a visit to Mickey.

    We have certainly all learned how to adapt and change plans. Thankfully, Disney understands this. If you purchase Annual Passes, they activate the day of first use. Just hold on to them until you enter a park.

    Theme park tickets are a bit different since you purchase them by dates. They are not refundable, but if they are unused the value may be applied toward a future visit. You will need to pay the difference if your new trip is for higher priced dates. Be sure to change your tickets before their allotted date. For example, if you buy tickets for January 4-8, 2022, adjust the ticket dates before January 4th. Also remember to cancel your Disney Park Pass and dining reservations.  

    Wishing you a wonderful visit whenever it is!
