    This year for Christmas, I'm planning on gifting a Disney Annual Pass to my girlfriend. I have never bought an AP before, so how exactly am I suppose to get this redeemable certificate? If it's via mail, how long? I need it by Christmas. Thanks!

    Hi Yeng Hoau and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I think a Walt Disney World Annual Pass is a great Christmas gift! Your girlfriend will love it! Thanks for sending us your question!

    When you purchase a Walt Disney World Annual pass online, you receive an email confirmation with an exchange certificate. You will definitely have this in time for Christmas, as a matter of fact, you’ll receive the confirmation email within minutes of making your purchase. Your pass is not activated until your first visit, so even if you purchase the pass now, your actual date of renewal will be one year following the date you first used your pass.

    Yeng Hoau, being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder has its benefits! You can enjoy discounts on Disney Resort hotel stays, merchandise and restaurants all over the Walt Disney World Resort. To take a good look at all of the passholder discounts available to you, visit the Passholder Benefits and Discount site.

    I hope this information is helpful to you as you get your girlfriend’s very magical gift ready for Christmas. If you have any other questions, feel free to come back to see us anytime!
