    Hi Lucius!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am delighted to greet another member of the Disney Vacation Club family and am so excited that you are considering joining the Annual Passholder family as well! We just took our first Welcome Home trip as Disney Vacation Club members last December and love all of the benefits of being Annual Passholders.

    At this time, sales of new Annual Passes are temporarily paused. You can call V.I.PASSHOLDER Support at 407-560-7277 with questions as you purchase those Annual Passes once sales resume. I did call to speak with a Cast Member to try to get more information for you. The Cast Member with whom I spoke shared some key information.

    Once Annual Pass sales resume, you may be able to apply the value of that remaining ticket to an Annual Pass. The ticket would still need to be valid and he said to go to Guest Relations to process the upgrade. He also said to note that, if the value of the unused ticket is applied to the Annual Pass purchase, your Annual Pass usage date may correspond to the date of when the ticket was first used. Having said that, with Annual Pass sales paused, I cannot absolutely confirm the process that will take place when you attempt to apply the value of that ticket to the new Annual Pass purchase.

    I will offer another word of caution as you consider when to buy those Annual Passes. When we were considering purchasing Annual Passes, I had a certain date in mind to buy them but before that date arrived, the cost of the Annual Passes increased. Also remember to have your Disney Vacation Club membership linked in your My Disney Experience account so that if you purchase the Annual Passes online, any applicable Disney Vacation Club discount for Annual Passes will apply.

    If you have an upcoming resort reservation, I encourage you to review the operational updates, especially as they relate to resort, dining, and theme park experiences. As I am sure you have discovered, policies and procedures are subject to change, so also keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for new information. 

    Lucius, we are so excited to welcome you back to a world of magic as you prepare for your next Incredible Disney Day. I do hope that you are able to get those Annual Passes. We have loved the benefits of membership, especially the merchandise discounts in the parks and resorts!

    Magic and memories,
