    I am an annual passholder but I'd like to take advantage of the free dining promotion. If I buy the required tickets, can I upgrade them towards my annual pass renewal? My passes expire 12/20/18 and the trip I am planning will be for Dec 17-22, 2018

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Deanna! 

    It always adds pixie dust to my day when I can assist a fellow annual passholder with planning magical visits to the Walt Disney World Resort. 

    Deanna, I have good news for you! You can certainly apply the cost of the tickets you purchased with your package as a credit when you renew your Annual Pass. Because your passes expire during your upcoming visit, I do recommend upgrading upon arrival. You don't want to utilize the tickets you want to use as credit when your AP expires. Simply visit one of the Guest Relations locations at all four theme parks or Disney Springs and a friendly cast member will be able to assist you with your renewal.

    I’m thrilled you were able to lock in the coveted free dining special offer for this fall! Be sure to maximize your dining plan entitlements by booking all your favorite restaurants early. You can begin locking in your reservations as early as 180-days in advance. And don’t forget to indulge on all your favorite Disney snacks. Did anyone say Mickey Premium Ice Cream bar? Well, now I officially have a rumbly in my tumbly.

    I’m gonna go get a snack to hold me over until my next magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I hope you have a magical day! 

    TTFN; ta ta for now,
