    I just booked for next spring, 2023 and am also planning now for next summer. My DVC Annual Pass expired in May and I didn't renew at that time. Can I still contact Member services now to renew with the revised version now available to DVC members?

    Welcome to planDisney, Dennis!

    I'm so glad you've found your way here! Thanks for stopping by with a question about your Disney Vacation Club Membership.  It sounds like you have an exciting year ahead –– with not one, but two Walt Disney World Resort visits on the horizon, I have a feeling that 2023 is going to be filled with magic for you and your family!

    As a fellow Walt Disney World Annual Passholder, I know that making the choice to renew your Pass each year is a big decision –– in fact, my Annual Pass expires later this fall, so I'm currently weighing my options for next year, too. However, when it comes to renewals, you have a window to renew your Annual Pass up to 60 days before and 30 days after it expires. Unfortunately, since your Annual Pass expired in May, that window has closed. If you'd like, you can contact Member Services at (800) 800-9800 to see if you have any options (after all, it never hurts to ask, right?), but keep in mind that since your renewal period has ended, it's likely that you won't be able eligible for an Annual Pass renewal.

    I know this probably wasn't the answer you were hoping for, but don't lose hope, yet –– your Annual Pass quest might not be over, just yet.  When sales of most new Walt Disney World Annual Passes were paused last year, it was indicated that this was a temporary stop.  And while we haven't heard any news about the return of Annual Pass sales so far, that could change at any time.  Since you have quite a bit of time before your next Walt Disney World visit, there's a great chance that sales may resume before you arrive. At that time, you would be able to purchase a new Disney Sorcerer Pass, as an eligible Disney Vacation Club Member, to use for your visits next year.  And if sales happen to resume after you've already purchased your theme park admission, don't worry –– you should also have the option to upgrade your existing tickets to an Annual Pass once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort.  Just be sure to stop by any Guest Relations location or Walt Disney World theme park ticketing window before using the final day on your ticket and a Cast Member should be able to help you with the upgrade process.

    Thanks so much for visiting planDisney, Dennis.  I hope this helped to answer your question, but if you need more information about this or any other part of your Disney Vacation Club Membership, please don't hesitate to stop by again –– we're always here to help!

    Happy Planning,
