    I am thinking about buying the Florida AP. My question is this--If I was to do the monthly payment plan will my year start with the first payment or with the first visit? Thinking of making the passes as Christmas gifts for my children but not go until Jan

    Greetings fellow Floridian!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love a good discount, and as a fellow Floridian and Annual Passholder, there are a bunch of great options! One of my favorite Floridian perks (besides being so close to The Mouse) is the payment program that Walt Disney World offers. It's so nice to spread the cost out over the yEAR rather than one lump sum. It looks like that would be a benefit for you when you win "Mama of the yEAR" with Annual Passes as gifts for the kiddos!

    Samantha, your Annual Pass starts the day you activate it. So let's say you purchase tickets for the kids on December 1st, 2019, but don't end up visiting until January 20th, 2020. The passes will be valid until January 20th, 2021. So go ahead and set up your Christmas gifts!

    As a Florida Resident, you have exclusive access to the Disney Gold Pass. The Disney Silver Pass, Theme Park Select Pass, Weekday Select Pass AND Epcot After 4 Annual Pass are all unique to Florida Residents! Each one of these passes lets you do the monthly payment plan.

    Samantha, once you activate your tickets, mosey on over to Walt Disney World and discover something new at the Parks. I guarantee there is a little known gem of an attraction that is just waiting for y' all to discover it!

    Enjoy your upcoming yEAR of Magic!
