    I am a DVC member and purchased the Gold Annual Pass several months ago. The only time I can go on another vacation to WDW this year is during one of the block-out dates. Can I upgrade to a premium annual pass and how much would that cost?

    Hi Katherine,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for joining us with you Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass question.

    Yes, under most circumstances, you can upgrade all Walt Disney World Resort theme park admission tickets, including Annual Passes. To upgrade from the Gold Annual Pass to the Platinum Annual Pass, simply stop by a convenient Guest Relations location outside each theme park and in Disney Springs. There, a helpful Cast Member can share the cost of your specific upgrade.

    Since it sounds like you might be planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation during the Holiday season, I wanted to share that the Limited Edition Annual Passholder T-Shirt for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party was just released through the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App! I love it and you might also!

    Please let us know if we can help with any additional questions, Katherine! We are here for you.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
