    My friends and I are planning to book a package and stay at Pop Century. We are all Florida residents. If after making reservations one of us decides to switch to a annual pass, how will that affect our package if only one of us has an annual pass?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Charity! Thanks for stopping by to bring us your question. It’s always a pleasure to chat with a fellow neighbor from the sunshine state.

    Charity, when you book a Magic Your Way package, each guest on the reservation will have the same booking specifications, like number of ticket days and Disney Dining Plan if you choose. If you want to book a package together, your friend can upgrade their existing ticket during your stay. To upgrade an existing ticket to an Annual Pass, guests simply need to visit one of the guest relations windows located at all four theme parks or Disney Springs with a valid ticket that still has unused days in it. A Cast Member there will take care of all the details. This will not affect the rest of the guests in your booked package since each ticket is assigned to each guest individually and any changes made will only affect the guest making those changes. And in the case of turning a ticket into an Annual Pass, those changes would be positive all around!

    If your friend purchases their Annual Pass prior to booking the package, they would still have to purchase the package tickets like the rest of the guest in your party. So, upgrading their tickets would be an easier way to go about it since at that point, they would only pay the difference to upgrade their tickets.

    I hope your friend decides to join the AP family! If they do, encourage them to do so early in during the visit so they can take advantage of all the magical exclusive benefits like discounts on merchandise and dining.

    Thanks again for stopping by! Have a magical day and see ya real soon,
