    We are DVC members and have the gold annual pass to WDW. Our renewal window to renew is coming up later this month. My question is can we renew online and upgrade our new passes to Platinum or does that have to be done in person?

    Hi John!

    I'm excited to hear that you might be enjoying some of the most magical time of the year at Walt Disney World Resort since you are considering upgrading to the Disney Platinum Pass without blockout dates for next year!

    You should feel free to renew your Walt Disney World Annual Pass online to ensure that you make the deadline to purchase at the renewal rate. Then, visit a Guest Relations Cast Member once you reach Walt Disney World Resort in order to upgrade to from the Disney Gold Pass to the Disney Platinum Pass. This should only take a matter of minutes from your day and you will be on your way to another year of beautiful moments with your family.

    Please let us know if you have any additional questions, John. We hope to see ya real soon!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
