    I am an out of state resident and have been waiting for annual passes to return. As I will not be in Flordia until we fly down is it possible to use the purchased annual pass for tickets before activation?

    Hello, Elizabeth,

    Thank you for sending your question to planDisney.  I was so happy to read about the return of sale of Walt Disney World Annual Passes on April 20, 2023 (April 13, 2023 for eligible Disney Vacation Club members). I feel like we've all been sprinkled with a bit of pixie-dust magic!

    When you purchase an Annual Pass, it is not activated until you first use it. However, you will be able to connect it with your My Disney Experience account to make your Theme Park Reservations. Similarly, you can use the Annual Pass to make a resort reservation with a discount if you qualify even though it isn't activated yet. 

    By the way, did you read that Annual Passholders will be able to visit theme parks after 2 PM without making a theme park reservation (except for the Magic Kingdom on Saturdays and Sundays and blackout dates)?  I think this is a great addition to the passes!

    As the window for the sale of Annual Passes grows closer, I'd encourage you to check the Annual Passholder page for any additional information about sale of them. 

    Wishing you a magical day! Please let us know if you have any further questions.
