    I understand if you pay in full then the pass becomes effective for 365 days from the first actual use. Is this also true for the Florida resident payment plan or does the 365 days start from the day of down payment?

    Hi there, Jessica, and welcome to planDisney!

    The Walt Disney World Annual Passholder life is sweet. I can’t imagine not having the keys to the kingdom now. There are so many perks when you have an annual pass, such as free parking at the theme parks, discounts on select food and merchandise, and more. For one, I can’t wait to experience the new Tiana’s Bayou Adventure attraction during the Annual Passholder preview days in June. 

    You’ll be happy to know that any annual pass type activates on the first day you use it at any of the four theme parks. Unless you’re visiting a theme park on Day 1, it will not activate on the day that you purchase it or make the down payment (using the Florida-resident Monthly Payment Plan). The 365 days don’t start until you officially tap into the magic.

    To qualify for one of the Florida-resident annual pass types, you will need a Florida-issued ID. If you don’t have one, you will need another form of ID plus proof of residency. Check out the Help Center to get more details about what will give you the green light. 

    Jessica, I hope that this helps. Revisit us here at planDisney with any more Disney vacation planning questions. I’m all ears! 

    Magic always,
