    I am considering purchasing an Annual pass during my upcoming trip in April. Can I upgrade my ticket on my final day during my April trip but not activate my AP until September when we return?

    Hi Kelly,
    Thanks for joining us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You must be so excited about your upcoming trip-are you counting down the days?

    One of the wonderful things about visiting the Walt Disney World Resort is that, if you decide that you just haven't gotten enough fun before you leave, you can upgrade your ticket to an Annual Pass.  My family has been Annual Passholders for over a decade and we keep finding new reasons to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, many of which just involve us hanging out and having fun together. Should you decide to upgrade your park ticket to an Annual Pass during your upcoming trip, know that the anniversary date of your Annual Pass will be the first day of use of your park ticket, which you indicate will be sometime in April.

    There are so many benefits of being an Annual Passholder!  Standard theme park parking is included, and you get discounts on select merchandise and select dining locations.  Plus, free PhotoPass downloads, which I absolutely love!

    Kelly, I hope this information helps you decide on whether or not an Annual Pass upgrade is right for you.  Please come back and see us anytime.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
