    Hello. Thinking of purchasing an annual pass. If I purchase now online (say on 2-15-17) and activate it on my next visit (say March 1,2017), will it be valid for use from March 1, 2017 till March 1, 2018? Just want to be sure I get this right. Thank you

    Hi Anna Maria,

    I love that you are considering a Walt Disney World annual pass. As a passholder for almost 20 years, I can tell you that the flexibility of a pass is fabulous, and if you are planning to visit more than once in a year, it's a good value, too.

    You are correct: Your annual pass begins on the date of first use, even if you purchase it in advance.

    With an annual pass, you'll be eligible for a number of special discounts and benefits. One of the best right now: a 20 percent discount on merchandise and a 20 percent discount at 45 restaurants in celebration of Walt Disney World's 45th anniversary. Those special discounts are valid through September 30, 2017, but other benefits and discountswill continue through your pass year.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question, Anna Maria. Please check back with us if we can help you make the most of your time as a Walt Disney World annual passholder. Enjoy!
