    Cheryl from FL Asked

    We have paid for annual passes but won't be activated when parking. Will we have to pay to park? Is there a place to activate outside of the area, maybe Disney Springs?

    Hey, howdy, hey, Cheryl and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Let's solve this parking before you have activated your annual pass issue and have you smiling from EAR to EAR.

    First, head over to Disney Springs Guest Relations in Town Center. Park in the Lime Garage, where parking is free and closest to the Disney Springs Welcome Center. Inside a friendly Cast Member will help you activate your Annual Pass. Please bring your printed online certificate and photo ID. Florida residents will need to show proof of residence.

    Second, go to any of the four theme parks, pay for parking, and save your receipt. Take the receipt to the Guest Relations window outside the theme park to activate your annual pass and receive a credit/refund.

    Third, if your annual pass is linked to your My Disney Experience account then all "active" MagicBands will also be linked to that annual pass. Just have the Cast Member at the parking toll plaza scan your MagicBand to verify Passholder status. Also, print out the confirmation of your annual pass purchase in case you need to show it to the Cast Member.

    Finally, if you received a certificate in the mail prior to your visit then you may show that to the parking attendant at the toll plaza along with a photo ID.

    Disney Dad Tip: Make sure to look over the Passholder Extras including the free Passholder magnet.

    Cheryl, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
