    Hi panel! Our family has decided to join DVC and purchase Annual Passes in June. Out first trip using the passes will be in Nov. I know they will not officially activate till our first use in park. However, will we be able to make FP at the 60 day mark?

    Hi Jordannah!

    Congratulations on becoming Disney Vacation Club Members! Let me be one of the very first to wish you a very warm, “Welcome Home!” We love the discount offered to Members on Walt Disney World Annual Passes! I find that being Passholders is a great value for our vacation budget.

    When you purchase your Walt Disney World Annual Passes from Disney Vacation Club Member Services, you will receive either a will-call number or exchange certificate. This will always include one of those important long Disney reservation numbers that you will then use in My Disney Experience. If you don’t already have a My Disney Experience account, it is easy to create one.  Once you are DVC Members, you will have access to the DVC Member Website. Since Disney websites share account information, set up both accounts with the same login. This will make your planning much easier as things like DVC resort reservation numbers should then show up automagically in your My Disney Experience account! Once set up, you will simply link your Walt Disney World Annual Pass number in My Disney Experience. You will then be able to customize your Magic Bands and make FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your resort reservation.

    When you arrive for your vacation you will need to visit a Guest Relations window outside a theme park or at Downtown Disney to have the Walt Disney World Annual Pass activated. Be sure to have a Photo ID for each adult and your Disney Vacation Club Membership Card with you to activate the passes. Then, with a simple “touch Mickey to Mickey” at the gates, you’ll be in the park enjoying yourselves in no time! Please let me know if there are any other questions I can help you with as you become Disney Vacation Club Members.

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
