So, you have purchased tickets to Walt Disney World Resort and are preparing for your vacation. Until recently, no new Annual Passes were being sold so you had to purchase 4-day tickets plus the park hopper option. You may also be planning another trip during the 50th-anniversary celebrations. Well, you would be the perfect candidate to upgrade your theme park tickets to an Annual Pass! Did you even know this was an option? Here’s how to do it!
So how exactly do you go about upgrading tickets to an Annual Pass? First make sure that the decision makes financial sense. If you are going to be visiting the parks more than once in a year & adding the hopper option, Annual Passes could very well save you money. Not to mention the parking, food and merchandise discounts passholders receive!
First, you will want to make sure you have unexpired theme park tickets purchased on or after September 8th 2021. You have the option to upgrade tickets that are unexpired, unused or even partially used. This means you can actually upgrade your tickets in the middle of your Disney World vacation and immediately begin receiving all of the perks! If you have a vacation coming up, you can upgrade either in-person once you arrive, or do it ahead of time over the phone.
To upgrade in person, you’ll just have to visit a theme park ticket window at any of the Walt Disney World them parks, or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. If you’d rather do it ahead of time, you can give Disney Guest Services a call at 407-934-7639. You will get the amount of your already purchased tickets deducted off the cost of the Annual Pass.
Disney World did a complete overhaul of the Annual Pass system and gave all of the passes new names. The passes are now called the Disney Pixie Dust Pass, Disney Pirate Pass, Disney Sorcerer Pass, and Disney Incredi-Pass. As before, out-of-state passholders are limited to the type of Annual Pass they are able to purchase (unless also a DVC member).
With all of the new attractions, experiences and 50th anni versary celebrations coming to Disney World, there’s no time like now to upgrade your tickets and join the passholder family!
