    Rachel from CA Asked

    I am going to purchase annual passes. Should I wait until I get to Disneyland and do it in person? If I purchase today, online, do they expire 365 days from today? Or 365 days from the first day I use them?

    Greetings Rachel!
    I'm thrilled to hear you'll be joining the Disneyland Resort Annual Passholder Family!
    I'm sure you're aware of all the awesome perks available to Annual Passholders. My favorite feature is the discount on Parks merchandise. I love to shop at the Emporium and watch the sales total decrease as soon as I present my Annual Passport!
    In terms of your Passport's expiration date, you'll be happy to know that the clock won't strike midnight on your Passport until 365 days from the first day of use.
    This means that you can purchase your Passport this month but if you're not planning to visit the Parks until June, the expiration date will be a year from the day you visit in June.
    It's as simple as that!
    I would suggest that you purchase and visit as soon as possible though, so you can catch the Main Street Electrical Parade before its lights are dimmed after August 20.
    The Main Street Electrical Parade returned to Disneyland after a 20 year absence but guests will only be able to enjoy the iconic nighttime presentation until the end of summer.
    I hope you enjoy your year as a Disney Annual Passholder and make sure you sign-up for email notifications from the Disney Parks Blog so you don't miss out on details and dated for Annual Passholder (AP) Days!
    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and remember, you have a friend in me!
