Question Buying an AP online, where do we activate it - ticket booth, gate, inside the park?

So we have decided to go ahead with the Annual Pass since we also plan to return again next year to use it again before it expires.

If we purchase them online, where do we exchange our printed eTicket, at the gate, the ticket booth or do we have to go inside to DL to get our official passes. I had read something about this but it was from many years ago so not sure what all has since changed.

Thanks!

This is all handled at the Ticket Windows. The pass center was shut down.

You can either do it at the ticket booth, or you can head into the park and they'll exchange it for a temporary ap until you head to the ticket booth sometime that day. If there's a big line when you arrive or if you want to head straight into the park at opening, I'd just enter and come back to the ticket booth later that day. If you arrive mid day and lines aren't bad I'd just take care of it right away.

Thanks for the responses. We will be heading over the park after lunch on a Thursday, so will likely just do it all at the booth then as it should not be too busy around that time of day!

I am getting excited thinking about it now.
