    Hi There. When does the year begin for annual pass? Date activated or date of 1st use? I was going down 8/10 for cruise and then will go to a park on 8/14 so wanted to activate on 8/10 so it is ready to use on 8/14. Need to be good thru 8/12/2024.

    Hiya Louis! 

    It's always a delight when you stop by planDisney; welcome back! 

    I'm thrilled you're joining the Annual Passholder family. I became an Annual Passholder years ago and have genuinely enjoyed every enchanting moment since. I love all the perks it offers, such as discounts on select dining locations, fabulous Disney merchandise, and especially the Special Offers on Disney Resort hotel stays.

    Louis, you have one year from the time of purchase to activate your Annual Pass. Once you use it to enter any of the theme parks for the first time, it activates the annual pass, which is good for one year from that date.

    If you would like to check your expiration date, you can do so once you've activated your pass. After activating your Annual Pass, open your My Disney Experience Mobile App, select the three horizontal lines on the bottom right, and tap Tickets and Passes. After locating your Annual Pass, you will see the expiration date displayed under it. 

    You'll also love The Passholder Buzz on your My Disney Experience Mobile App. On the Home page, scroll down until you see The Passholder Buzz, and select Learn More to see exclusive updates and offers just for Annual Passholders! 

    If you need any help with your Annual Pass, please feel free to call the Annual Pass line, and a friendly Cast Member will be happy to help you. 

    Wishing you many enchanting visits to the magic all year long, Louis!
