    staying at all-star movies, and package that includes pass holder discount and meal plan, then purchased annual passes, i know passes must be active to check-in but we are taking magical express to resort, can we activate our passes at the resort?

    Hi there, Jennifer!  I bet you're excited about your upcoming cross country trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth! You've asked a great question, and luckily I've been in a similar situation myself.

    Welcome to the Passholder family, by the way!  Since you've booked a vacation package with your Annual Passholder discount, I know you've already done your research.  I've bookmarked the Special Offers and Passholder Extras pages on my computer so I can check for current discounts. 

    Unfortunately, you won't be able to activate your Annual Pass at your resort.  You'll need to do this at any Walt Disney World theme park ticket window or a Guest Relations location (including Disney Springs), and bring a valid photo ID with you.  I'm sure you will have some weary travelers with you on Disney's Magical Express. When you arrive at Disney's All-Star Movies Resort, just let them know that you plan on activating your passes as soon as you get to the theme parks the next day.  In my experience, the Front Desk Cast Members are super understanding (they may ask you to show your yellow Annual Pass card to them after you receive it).

    I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, Jennifer, that you'll get one of the recently reimagined rooms at your resort!  I've seen pictures, and the rooms look refreshed and modern with laminate wood flooring, large flat screen TVs, and cute Disney pop art.  The rooms also feature a Murphy bed which makes the rooms more spacious.  

    Have a magical vacation!
