    Hi, if I purchase annual tickets now for a future visit in order to "reserve" fast" pass options will my tickets start their annual countdown now or when I first use them at one of the parks?

    Hello, Kathy! I’m so glad that you’re ready to purchase your Annual Pass. I can tell that you’re a real Mouseketeer, just like me! I purchased my first Annual Pass this year, and I’ve been SO very happy I did! I’ll tell you how I purchased my AP and planned my first visit, just like you’re planning to do.
    I purchased my AP in February of this year, in anticipation of my April vacation with my family. I purchased my other family members park hopper tickets and made FastPass+ reservations for us all easily with My Disney Experience. When we finally stepped off Disney’s Magical Express and into our Resort, I left my family and went immediately to Magic Kingdom’s Guest Relations desk, where I activated my Annual Pass with the help of a Cast Member. Since my pass was activated in the month of April, I will have 12 months from that point (not the purchase point) to enjoy my park hopper tickets, merchandise discounts and other passholder benefits.
    I hope you can snag the exact attractions you are hoping for, as well as shop to your heart’s content when you visit Walt Disney World Resort. As an upcoming new Annual Passholder, please let me know what other questions you might have, and I’ll see you in the Annual Passholder’s exclusive touchpoints line at the Parks! ~ Lindsey P.
