    I am currently a silver annual pass holder and would like to upgrade to a gold pass. My family are dvc members and will be at the park 10/19 to 21 during black out dates Also would like to have photo pass for pics that are already taken. Is this possible

    Welcome to planDisney, fellow Annual Passholder Christopher!

    Enjoying a visit to Walt Disney World is one of our family's favorite pastimes, so extending that magic through the use of an Annual Pass means making even more memories throughout the year together: it's wonderful!

    I spoke with a Cast Member on your behalf and confirmed that upgrades to Annual Passes have been paused at this time. However, if you are within 60 days of your Annual Pass expiration, you may upgrade your Annual Pass during the renewal process.

    If your Annual Pass renewal date isn't close enough for that upgrade to include your upcoming visit over blockout dates, consider purchasing a three day Standard Theme Park Ticket in 2020. I checked Disney Park Pass Availability on those three dates and, at the time of this writing, there are theme park reservations available at all four parks on all three days. Great timing! 

    Regarding capturing all of those magical moments together through the use of Disney PhotoPass Service, you'll have access to all of them if you are able to upgrade your Annual Pass (through renewal) to Gold prior to arrival. Not to worry if you can't, though. Guests can purchase either a Memory Maker One Day option or purchase a Memory Maker package that includes all photos from your entire stay. With family visiting during such a gorgeous time of year, I highly recommend that you try Memory Maker - Advance Purchase so that you enjoy that pre-arrival discounted price for capturing each and every magical memory. 

    Don't forget to download the super-handy My Disney Experience mobile app, too, and link your family to your Family & Friends List in your My Disney Experience account. That way, you'll all be able to view and download--almost instantly--each other's fabulous photos of the fun, even if you separate for part of a day or two. 

    As you plan your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth during a most magical season, Christopher, please be sure to send additional questions our way. We love to help!
