    Hi, We're jetting off to Florida 24 May, I've Unfortunately bought one of my Grandson a childs ticket, but he's going to be 10 two weeks prior, oops :( is it possible to upgrade to an adult ticket when we get to Disneyworld please?

    Hi there, Michael!

    A warm welcome to planDisney and thank you for bringing us your question about Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets. I'm excited to hear that you're planning a memorable holiday at The Most Magical Place on Earth! Are you counting down the days? I'd be happy to help you sort out your ticket troubles, Michael.

    I understand that you mistakenly purchased a child theme park ticket (ages 3-9) for your grandson who will be 10 years old during your visit. Hakuna Matata - it means "no worries!" I'm happy to inform you that you'll be able to upgrade your grandson's theme park ticket to the appropriate ticket type (ages 10+). To complete this modification, you may call the friendly Cast Members at the Disney Park Tickets phone line for assistance. Alternatively, you're welcome to complete this transaction once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort by visiting one of the ticket booths at any of the four theme parks, or by stopping into the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. At the time the ticket is modified, you'll simply pay the difference between the original ticket and the upgraded ticket!

    During your visit, be sure to check out the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. This colorful springtime celebration is my favorite of all the EPCOT Festivals and features stunning topiaries, awe-inspiring flowerbeds, and delicious snacks all throughout the World Showcase! Your grandchildren are sure to enjoy Spike's Pollen-Nation Exploration scavenger hunt - it's a fantastic family-friendly offering and even includes a special prize upon completion.

    Michael, I hope that you find this information helpful as you continue to plan a lovely springtime holiday for your family. If you have any additional planning questions, please feel free to stop back by planDisney again soon - we're happy to help you make the most of your time at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Warm wishes,
