    I see the Annual passes are on pause right now. Any idea when they will return? If we visit before they return, but then they are offered later this year, can I ‘upgrade’ to the annual pass if I have days left on my tickets so I get credit for what I paid?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Regina. Thanks for stopping by with your question. I see that you have a vacation to the Most Magical Place on Earth next month. I bet you are getting so excited. 

    Regina, I've been a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder for years now and I absolutely love it. Being able to visit the Walt Disney World Theme Parks pretty much anytime I have a spare weekend is so much fun. We've made so many priceless memories with it, it is well worth the initial investment. At this time, Regina, we still have not received word as to when the Walt Disney World Annual Pass program will resume sales once again. I've been keeping an eye out over on the Disney Parks Blog anticipating an announcement. When there is one, that is where we are going to find out all of the information. 

    Upgrading your Walt Disney World Theme Park tickets to an Annual Pass can be done depending on the ticket type that you have, Regina. If you have a multi-day ticket, which it sounds like you do, you can upgrade to a Walt Disney  World Annual Pass until the last day of your ticket entitlements. If you've purchased tickets recently, some rules around using them have changed a little bit. Depending on how many days you've purchased tickets for, once used for the first time you only have so many days to use them until they expire. 

    Here's the breakdown:
    1-day – The ticket expires on the selected start date.
    2-day – The ticket expires 4 days after the selected start date.
    3-day – The ticket expires 5 days after the selected start date.
    4-day – The ticket expires 7 days after the selected start date.
    5-day – The ticket expires 8 days after the selected start date.
    6-day – The ticket expires 9 days after the selected start date.
    7-day – The ticket expires 10 days after the selected start date.
    8-day – The ticket expires 12 days after the selected start date.
    9-day – The ticket expires 13 days after the selected start date.
    10-day – The ticket expires 14 days after the selected start date.

    So as you can see, if the Walt Disney World Annual Pass program is offered within this timeframe and you still have days left on your ticket, you can absolutely use that to upgrade to an annual pass. However, if you are outside of this window, you won't be eligible to upgrade those particular tickets at a later date. 

    I hope this helps, Regina. If you have any other questions about the Annual Pass program or anything else, please feel free to stop back by and ask me. I'm here to help. 

    Have fun and enjoy!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
