    I am headed to WDW in October for a few days, I plan on purchasing hopper passes, if Disney opens up annual passes by then will they let me upgrade and pay the difference?

    Hi, Meghan! I have great news for you. The World’s Most Magical Celebration kicks off in October. Your trip dates align and will allow you to experience this extra special occasion. Lucky you!

    I definitely understand your desire to upgrade your theme park tickets to an annual pass so that you can extend the magic to a whole year. As it sounds like you’re already aware, new annual passes are not currently available. I can tell you that in the past, Guests have been permitted to upgrade a theme park ticket to an annual pass, as long as they do so before the last day of that ticket’s usability. I did just that for my granddaughter’s ticket a couple of years ago. 

    There is no word yet as to when new annual passes will be available for purchase again. Nor are there any announcements about changes to the policy that would allow Guests to upgrade a ticket to an annual pass. The very best spot to check for updates is the Annual Passes: Know Before You Go page. 

    I sure hope that your dream comes true, Meghan, and that you are able to get that annual pass soon!

Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
