    Hello, my sister bought the Disney Platinum Pass online for me and my husband back then in 2017 but we haven't activate the pass yet so I wonder if they are still valid to use or we completely lost the tickets?

    Hiya Thy! 

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad you stopped by to ask us this magical question today as I always love helping fellow Annual Passholders. Your sister made a great decision when purchasing her Annual Pass and I hope that she will be able to use it real soon! 

    Unfortunately, new Annual Passes have to be activated within a year of their purchase. Usually, the price of your unused Annual Pass could be put toward the price of a new Annual Pass of equal or higher value. However, Annual Passes are not currently being sold, so you would not be able to upgrade your unused Annual Pass just yet. In any case, this can only be done by a Cast Member, so I would highly recommend that you reach out to a Cast Member via chat, email or phone for more information. To stay up to date on all the latest Disney Parks news, also keep an eye on the Walt Disney World Resort website and the Disney Parks Blog as that is where the sale of Annual Passes will be announced when it returns. 

    In the meantime, I highly recommend that you plan your next Disney vacation before the spring of 2023, as that is when the World’s Most Magical Celebration is set to end. Indeed, if you have not experienced the EARidescent glow of the Resort’s 50th anniversary, I cannot recommend it enough! This celebration includes so many unique offerings that will only be available during that limited time. For example, as a big foodie myself, I have been loving trying all the different treats specially themed for the 50th anniversary. If your party gets as excited about Disney treats as I do, make sure to check out Disney Parks Blog’s Foodie Guide. Then, you must end the day by watching the new nighttime spectaculars Disney Enchantment and Harmonious, at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT respectively. These two fireworks shows have only been available for 10 months, and they have already become some of my favourites! 

    I hope this was helpful, Thy, and that you and your sister will be able to experience the Disney magic real soon. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach back out. You and me, we’re in a club now! 

    Have a magical day,
