    My daughter received a free ticket for singing in candlelight procession. Can we use that ticket towards purchase of annual pass?

    Hey, Jennifer and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    It's the most wonderful time of the year at Walt Disney World Resort when the winter decorations come out. Holiday trees that tower over 60 feet into the sky glitter with lights and the Epcot® International Festival of the Holidays have food and entertainment for everyone. At the Festival, the Candlelight Processional tells the Christmas story through the beautiful voices of a celebrity host, full choir and a 50-piece orchestra. I am so excited that your daughter shared her voice with yuletide glee to everyone.

    There are a few ticket types that are not eligible to upgrade. Those include Special Event Tickets, Water Park Tickets, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex Tickets, UK Special Tickets and finally, Complimentary Tickets. I have some complimentary tickets and wish I could upgrade them but when I tried at a Walt Disney World theme park ticket window and Guest Relations location they said I could not. I also called (407) WDW-PASS or (407) 939-7277 to verify and sadly, it is still true.

    Disney Dad Tip: Since she has a complimentary ticket, link it to her Disney account in My Disney Experience either online or through the My Disney Experience mobile app. When her FastPass+ selection window opens she will be ready to make her choices helping to skip the lines and enjoy the magic.

    Jennifer, I hope you and your daughter enjoy making many Magical Memories.
