    Hey! I am wanting to get my son and I AP for this upcoming year. We have a trip planned in November but are staying with 3 other people. Can we upgrade just our tickets to AP? We fly into 1 hotel, then switch to FW to start the package. When can we upgrade

    Hi Robin,
    Thanks for joining us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question! We are so glad that you stopped by.

    How wonderful to hEAR that you are joining the Annual Passholder family! My family has had Annual Passes for many years and we love the many benefits that accompany being an Annual Passholder.  Yes, you can upgrade specific tickets to Annual Passes; you will want to take your MagicBands to a ticket window and request an upgrade. You MUST do this while you still have days left on your pass; I'd suggest doing it upon arrival to take advantage of all the benefits associated with your Pass.

    Allow me to give you a few examples of Passholder benefits: dining discounts at select restaurants, merchandise discounts on select merchandise, free standard parking at theme parks, discounts on special event tickets like Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party (select dates only), discounts on select tours, the list goes on and on.  Say it with me-do you have an Annual Passholder discount-because you should say this at every location where you are spending money.  Your Pass should also include one of my favorite things-free unlimited Disney's PhotoPass downloads! Have your photo taken at every location and download all of those images; this includes attraction photos as well.

    Robin, I hope your upcoming trip is picture-perfect! Please stop by and visit us again with any additional Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
