Annual Pass activation date

I am thinking about buying an annual pass. Does anyone know if I buy a pass today but don’t plan on activating the park ticket part til Dec. 2017, can I use the pass now to get a discount on a room in December? I don’t want to activate the pass now because we would be going again in October of 2018. Does that make sense? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, when you link the voucher to your MDE account you can see the passholder reservation page . It is not activated until your trip.
