    If you buy a Disney very merry Christmas ticket can you use it towards the purchase of a year pass?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jessica! 

    I love that there are two after-hours holiday parties at Walt Disney World Resort this year: the glitzy Disney Jollywood Nights at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and the classic Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at Magic Kingdom Park. I’ve yet to experience your party of choice, but I’ve heard the most magical stories about the holiday magic of Mickey’s bash. 

    These separately ticketed events, like Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, are not eligible to be upgraded to a Walt Disney World Resort annual pass. However, if you have another unused 1-Day theme park ticket or a fully or partially unused multi-day theme park ticket, you can upgrade those with Guest Relations (near the entrances of each theme park or at Disney Springs) or call the “Existing Tickets” phone number at the online Help Center. 

    AN EXTRA GEM: If you decide to only purchase an annual pass, which you have a ton of options as a Florida resident, there are still many ways for you to get your fill of holiday cheer. My family loves visiting Disney Springs for its Christmas Tree Stroll. Each tree is made with love and creativity. I’m hoping to see the Encanto tree again this year. You can also experience different holiday traditions across all four Disney theme parks throughout the season. I can’t wait to behold the Candlelight Processional at the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays!

    Whichever path you take—or if you take both!—I hope that you have the BEST holiday season at the Most Magical Place on Earth. Revisit us here at planDisney if you have any other questions about your Disney visits!

    Magic always,
