    I want to buy a Annual Pass Flex Passport now so that I can make reservations for 3 weeks when we go. However, I can't find anywhere where it tells me if my AP starts when I buy it online and make the reservations or if it starts on our first visit?

    Hey Leticia!

    I’m so glad you found us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I had this exact question when my family purchased the Disney Flex Passport.

    My family has been loving the flexibility of the Flex Passport. You’ll have "Good to Go" days and "Reservation Required" days and the Admissions & Blockout Calendar is easy to manage. You can make reservations right from the Disneyland Mobile App so it’s really convenient. The Disney Flex Passport is good for 365 days and starts when you first make a reservation. If you purchase the Flex Passport today and make a reservation for three weeks from today, then your 365 days would start today even though you won’t step foot into a park for three weeks. This is why I HIGHLY recommend that you purchase the Disney Flex Passport on the day that you plan on using it for the first time. You can do so at one of the ticket booths in the esplanade. If you happen to go on a “Reservation Required” date, the Cast Member at the ticket booth will set it up so that you can go in that day. That’s how you maximize your Annual Passport!

    Being an Annual Passholder does come with its set of benefits. You’ll enjoy discounts on merchandise, dining, event tickets and guided tours. At certain times of the year, there are sometimes discounts on hotels at the Disneyland Resort and I’ve even seen discounts at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa. Consider adding Disney MaxPass for the year to your Flex Passport. You will be able to skip the main line and make Disney FASTPASS selections directly from your mobile device on the Disneyland Mobile App. Disney MaxPass also gives you unlimited Disney PhotoPass photo downloads from your pictures around the parks and rides. Make sure you ask the photographers for Magic Shots! 

    Well Leticia, I hope that you find yourself taking selfies with Mickey and Minnie on Main Street U.S.A. very soon. Maybe I’ll see you around!

    Remember, always believe in the magic!
