    Hi again, Missy!! We have 8 day PH tickets for our Nov. trip. Thinking about upgrading to an annual pass when we get there. Will it cost the difference between the hoppers and the annual passes? Thanks!

    Hi Jaynee,

    It's great to hear from you again! How fun that you're considering upgrading to an Annual Pass! My family became Annual Passholders last year and we have had a BLAST enjoying them. I think you'll LOVE being able to visit the most magical place on earth whenever you'd like, plus being an Annual Passholder comes with lots of great perks and benefits!

    I'm happy to let you know that as long as it's within 14 days of your ticket's first use and you still have at least one day left on it, you'll be able to upgrade it to an annual pass. You may visit a theme park ticket window, Guest Relations location, or the Lobby Concierge at your Resort hotel and a Cast Member will be happy to assist you. Or did you know that you may now upgrade your ticket with the My Disney Experience app? My sweet friend and fellow Panelist Robyn recently gave wonderful step-by-step directions on how to do this. And yes, you're correct that you'll simply need to pay the difference between the Park Hopper Option ticket you currently have and the Annual Pass you'd like to purchase.

    If you're pretty certain you'd like to upgrade your ticket, I'd encourage you to do it near the beginning of your trip so that you'll be able to take advantage of some of the dining, merchandise, and other special discounts available to Annual Passholders during your vacation. You'll also have access to a dedicated entrance at each theme park, which can save lots of time in the morning.

    I'm so excited for you, Jaynee, and I just know that if you decide to upgrade to an Annual Pass, you'll enjoy an entire incredible year FULL of magic and fun!
