    My daughter and I will be at WDW in January....can't wait!!! We are DVC members and will be buying annual passes. Will we be able to buy these tickets using a Disney gift card(s)?

    Hi Patricia,

    I have good news for you. You will be able to use your Disney Gift Card(s) to purchase your annual passes; however, you cannot do so online. You will need to call (407) 939-1289 and follow the prompts to ask for assistance with tickets. You can use a maximum of two forms of payment per transaction, so if your Disney Gift Card does not cover the full price of the ticket, have another form of payment ready for the balance. You should know that right now, Disney Vacation Club members, as well as immediate family members living in the same household, do get a discount on select annual passes.

    You could wait and purchase the annual passes at a Guest Relations booth at any theme park at Walt Disney Wold when you arrive; however, if you can, I would go ahead and purchase them ahead of time. When you purchase annual passes over the phone, if it is more than seven to ten business days before you plan to travel, Disney will send you annual pass vouchers in the mail. When you arrive at Walt Disney World, you will need to take the annual pass vouchers, along with your ID and the card that you used to pay for the annual passes, to a Guest Relations window at one of the Walt Disney World theme parks. If you take advantage of the discount currently available to Disney Vacation Club members, you will also need to take your Disney Vacation Club member card when you redeem the vouchers. If your daughter is an adult, she will also need her Disney Vacation Club Member ID or a valid driver's licence or state identification card showing that she lives at the same address as you. Your annual passes will begin from the day you redeem the vouchers at Walt Disney World - not from the date you purchase them over the phone.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Patricia! Have a great time planning your vacation, and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
