    Hi Moms! Heading back to our "magical home" next month. We have 8 day park hopper tickets but are considering upgrading to annual passes. WHEN must we do this? At the beginning of our stay or can we wait until nearer our check out date?

    Hi Jennifer!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so happy to hear that you will be upgrading to Annual Passes because that means you have more trips "home" planned for the year! When you upgrade your ticket, you must have valid remaining theme park admissions on your ticket. That means you must upgrade your tickets within 14 days of their first use and you need to still have theme park admission days left on your ticket. While you are welcome to upgrade your tickets towards the end of your trip, provided you still have valid admissions remaining, I recommend you consider upgrading your ticket at the beginning of your trip so you can take advantage of the awesome Annual Passholder Benefits during your entire trip. We just got back from our trip and I found that we saved quite a bit of money using both the merchandise discount and the dining discount available to Annual Passholders!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
