Thank you OP, followed your detailed advice and purchased tickets for our holiday in July. It worked out cheaper to get an annual pass than 4 day tickets with the exchange rate they are giving. Rang the number , pressed one several times until I heard music and got through in about 10 minutes. They said they are sending a temporary pass letter valid for 6 months and we need to take our passports to the office on arrival in Disneyland to get our passes on the day of arrival. Valid for 12 months from that date.

*bought. You purchased the tickets over the phone. You didn't already have the tickets to bring them...
I don't know whether it is still the case, but it used to be that by booking a Disney Hotel for your stay, you could use the Annual Pass during blackout dates. I've never owned one so don't know whether Disney have closed this little benefit, but might be worth asking if you buy a pass
When u buy annual passes, all can be used on day of purchase, only the cheapest one (discovery pass) is the one u can’t use on 2nd and 3rd day of purchase. I’ve booked for April for me and my daughter going with a frend and her daughters, we’ve booked offsite hotel and Eurostar. We will use annual passes for 3 full days and 2 half days entry. We are buying the second tier pass and it’s valid on our dates. I will do a trip for a night in the summer with onsite hotel with annual pass discount and then probably 2 day trips or 1 night trips for Halloween and Xmas and even if I don’t its still a bargain. As 4 days tickets cost an adult £169 but annual pass £151. And u can choose where u stay on what trip. The second tier pass gives a good choice of dates. 300 days a year. First tier gives only 150 days a year and has a lot of blockout dates.
