    Hi there, Diane!

    Welcome, and thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I’m thrilled to hear you’re planning to purchase your first Disneyland Resort Annual Passport. You’re about to experience a year full of magical visits to the Happiest Place on Earth! I’ve enjoyed the benefits of being a Passholder for over a decade because it’s the best way to soak in as much theme park fun as possible.

    When you purchase an Annual Passport online, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a Disney eTicket that can be printed at home. Bring your printed eTicket to the park or it can also be scanned from a mobile device. You’ll be given a physical Annual Passport card that becomes active on that first day you enter Disneyland Park or Disney California Adventure Park using your pass. If you want to verify your expiration date or view the details of your Annual Passport after it’s active, sign in to your account on and then visit Annual Passholders Today.

    I hope this answers your question, Diane. Please stop by again with any other questions you may have about the Disneyland Resort as you begin to plan your first pixie-dusted visit as an Annual Passholder!

    Wishing you magic,
