    Thomas from NJ Asked

    I purchased a DVC member Gold annual pass today so I can be able to make fast pass choices for my upcoming stay in April. Will the effective date be the first day of use (ex. 4/23/2020) to start the count of 365 days of availability and not today?

    Hi Thomas,

    I am so glad that you returned to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with another vacation question. First, let me start by saying congratulations on becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder! I can only imagine the magic you are about to experience for this upcoming year. Being able to purchase the Disney Gold Pass is an excellent offer available only to Disney Vacation Club Members and one of many Disney Vacation Club Member benefits. Your Disney Gold Pass will not be activated until your first day of entry into one of the theme parks, so when you visit in April your year of magic will begin! 

    The window for making those FastPass+ selections will open soon and there are some new attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios that are now available for FastPass+ selections. Previously, you couldn’t land a Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run FastPass+, but you can now!  You can also score a FastPass+ selection for the newest attraction in Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, the first ride at any Disney park to feature Mickey Mouse and friends. So get to making those FastPass+ selections and making the most of your new Disney Gold Pass. 

    Please stop back by if we can help answer any more of your vacation questions.
