    Arriving at Pop Sept.2 to 7 2018/ free dining. Can I buy a season pass before I go instead of a multi day ticket or do I have to upgrade while there. Also if I upgrade when does my Disney photo pass begin? Thank You

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Janice! 

    Hooray for being able to take advantage of one of the more popular special offers, the free dining offer! I hope you’re ready for all the tasty meals you’ll get to enjoy during your visit. Have you made all your reservations yet? Availability is limited, so don’t delay.

    Janice, because you purchased a special package that required specific tickets, if you’re hoping to use the credit of what you paid for your tickets to apply to your Annual Pass, you’ll have to do it when you arrive. Once you are there, just stop by any Guest Relations location at all four theme parks or Disney Springs and upgrade your tickets there.

    Once your ticket is upgraded, you will be able to take advantage of all the pixie-dusted benefits and discounts you can enjoy as an Annual Passholder, including all your PhotoPass pictures! So I definitely recommend upgrading as soon as you arrive. 

    I hope this information is helpful! For any additional questions or planning tips, be sure to come back and see us again real soon. 

    Wishing you a magical day,

    Emille ºoº
