    I'm a DVC Member, I have reservations for May 15 to 24 at Kidani Village. I have an 8 day hopper pass. I would like to know the cost to upgrade to the DVC Sorcerer Pass and how do I upgrade

    Hi Gary, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question, my fellow Disney Vacation Club Member! 

    I was absolutely thrilled to hear that sales of Walt Disney World Annual Passes were resuming this month. Being an Annual Passholder really is the best way to get the most out of a DVC Membership! 

    It’s tough for me to be able to give you a definite answer about how much it will cost for you to upgrade your Theme Park Ticket to a Disney Sorcerer Pass for your trip this May. The cost will depend on how much you paid for your ticket (if you were able to apply any promotions or Special Offers to its purchase) and what options you’d like to add to your Annual Pass. Typically, these kinds of “upgrades” will be the difference between what you paid for your ticket and what an Annual Pass costs at the time of upgrade. If you look at your original purchase confirmation, you should get a pretty good idea of what that price difference would be and, therefore, what your upgrade would cost. 

    As for how to proceed with that upgrade, I believe that you can either contact Member Services to try to do so before your arrival or you can apply your ticket’s value towards an Annual Pass by visiting any Ticket Window or Guest Relations at Walt Disney World Resort or Disney Springs. Please note that the Lobby Concierge at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Villas – Kidani Village typically isn’t able to help Guests upgrade their tickets to Annual Passes, but it never hurts to ask!

    I hope my answer helps you enjoy all of your membership benefits this May! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
