    Hi! If I buy park tickets for December and annual passes become available before then, am I able to buy an annual pass and credit the park ticket amount towards that?

    Hi Emily!

    When Walt Disney World announced Annual Passes would be available before the 50th anniversary, I had this same question about the tickets I purchased for a fall trip. Would I be able to upgrade to an Annual Pass once they go on sale?

    Before Disney suspended the sale of Annual Passes, guests could upgrade to one as long as one full day of park admission remained on their current ticket. Changes needed to be done in person with Guest Services. Disney has not announced if these guidelines will still apply when Annual Pass sales are reinstated. I am hoping since many guests who bought tickets for upcoming visits would like to upgrade to an Annual Pass, Disney will again allow for upgrades. Until details are released about the new passes, however, we do not know for certain.

    Keep an eye on the Theme Park Availability calendar. Magic Kingdom is already booked for major holidays in December and you don't want to miss out on a Disney Park Pass Reservation. Watch the Disney Parks Blog for more announcements and details about Annual Passes as well.

    Hoping you enjoy many, many days of fun with Mickey!
