    We have a 4 n 2 yr year old. If we purchase a pixie pass now, are there options when our daughter turns 3? Is she included for the year when we purchase? Is there a prorated amount to keep her on schedule with us? Not worth it if she is off schedule.

    Hiya Tony,

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m so excited that you are looking into bringing more magic into your year with a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass. The magic of Disney is even more remarkable when you see it through the eyes of your little Mouseketeers.

    It is definitely a money saver when you bring a Mouseketeer under three because they do not need a Theme Park ticket or Annual Pass to visit the Theme Parks. So if you purchase Disney Pixie Dust Passes for your family, you will only need one for your daughter once she turns three. Once she turns three, she will need her own Disney Pixie Dust Pass or valid Theme Park ticket to enter the Theme Parks (even if you have a valid Annual Pass). Since Walt Disney World Resort does not offer pro-rated Annual Passes, once you purchase a Disney Pixie Dust Pass, it will have a new expiration date that coincides with a year from her activation date. So to answer your question, yes, she would have a different date from you and the rest of your family. If you all must have the same expiration date, I recommend waiting until your little one turns three.

    There is a benefit to not waiting, however. I have many friends who have their Annual Passes for discounts and then purchase their children regular Theme Park tickets when they visit. Depending on when your little one turns three, this could be a way to have your annual passes, and when it comes time to renew, you all are on the same schedule for the following year. Having an Annual Pass is fantastic because of the visiting potential and the additional Passholder benefits on events, dining, merchandise, and more. For example, if you are looking into experiencing a Disney After Hours event, you can use your Annual Pass to get those tickets at a discount. The money you can save over the course of a year can make up the price you would spend on Theme Park tickets for your little one! It is not ideal, but I thought you might be interested in it.

    I hope this was helpful, Tony! Please come back and see us if you need anything!

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
