    how much time do you have to use annual pass for first time

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, George!

    I’m thrilled to learn you are considering joining the magical Annual Passholder family! There are so many enchanted benefits to being an annual passholder. You can enjoy exclusive discounts, complimentary theme park parking, a dedicated entrance at all four theme parks, editing and downloading privileges to all your PhotoPass photos during your active year, just to name a few. But in my opinion, the best perk to having an Annual Pass is being able to enjoy the magic more often!

    George, I checked with a cast member to confirm I’m providing you with accurate information, and they informed me that, unlike regular theme park tickets which must be used by the end of the following year of purchase, Annual Passes don’t have a set time for activation once purchased. Your clock only begins once you visit for the first time as an AP. But don't delay on planning an upcoming visit. There are tons of exciting things happening this summer at the Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Pro-tip! Be sure to bookmark the benefits and discounts page to your mobile device so you can access it anytime you’re visiting. You won’t want to miss out on any of those magical perks.

    Thank you for stopping by! We hope to see you again real soon.
