    If I buy a gold pass this year and decide after this year I want to do platinum can I pay platinum renewal cost or do I need to buy a whole new pass?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Melissa!

    What a great question!

    I just activated my own Disney Gold Pass, so I called Walt Disney World to inquire about how you or I would go about upgrading to a Disney Platinum Pass during our renewal period.

    In short, if a Disney Gold Passholder decides to upgrade to a Disney Platinum Pass within his or her renewal window, that upgrade is easy. Simply call the Annual Passholder hotline at (407) 560-7277. Then, you will be able to renew your Annual Pass at the Platinum pass renewal rate.

    Annual Passes are such a great way to maximize the magic of multiple upcoming Walt Disney World stays, and the perks that come with them are pretty fantastic, too!

    Send more questions as you plan, Melissa. We love to help!
