    I am thinking of purchasing an annual pass to Disneyland. I am planning to visit the park either next spring or summer in 2020. If I purchase the pass today, how long do I have to activate the annual pass?

    Hiya, Bryan, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I’m so glad to hEAR that you’re considering joining the Annual Passholder family! Let me be the first to welcome you to this Disney-loving group! You’re going to love experiencing the many benefits and discounts that come from being a Passholder! 

    I checked with a Cast Member, and was told that if you purchase your Annual Passport today, you’ll have up to one year to activate it. So, when you purchase your Annual Passport online, your year-long pass begins on the day you arrive at the Disneyland Resort to exchange your eTicket for the actual Annual Passport. Your expiration date will be one year from that first visit – not the date that you purchased the Passport (unless you visit the same day you purchase it). 

    After your purchase is complete, you’ll receive a confirmation e-mail with your Disney eTicket. You can print this eTicket at home, or scan it from your mobile device at the Main Entrance turnstiles. At some point during this first visit to the theme parks, you’ll need to visit a Disneyland Resort Main Entrance Ticket Booth to pick up your Annual Passport card. Once you have your new card, you can stop by any Disney PhotoPass Cast Member to have your picture taken and added to your card.

    If you want to verify your expiration date or view the details of your Annual Passport after it’s active, simply sign in to your account on Disneyland.com and visit Annual Passholders Today. For further questions, please contact Annual Passport Member Services at (714) 781-4567.

    I can’t wait for your year of Disney magic to begin! Hope to see ya’ real soon!
