    I know you can't purchase AP's right now, but my question is can I book my trip, purchase a 4 day ticket and when AP's become available, can I then purchase the AP and be credited the difference?

    Welcome to planDisney, Allen! Thanks so much for stopping by with your question about Walt Disney World Annual Passes.

    I like the way you think! You can absolutely apply the value of the theme park tickets you’ve purchased toward the purchase of your annual pass. I just want you to be aware of a few details, as you make your plans.

    Allen, if you use a few days of that 4-day ticket, you can still apply the value of the ticket toward an annual pass. The catch is that your pass would expire one year to the date of the first time you used the 4-day ticket and not on the day you decided to roll the value of that ticket into an annual pass. 

    It’s also important to know that you must visit a ticket window at any of the theme parks or the Guest Services location at Disney Springs to apply the value of your Florida Resident theme park tickets to an annual pass. It can only be done in person and not over the phone. I learned this the hard way!

    Being a Walt Disney World Passholder means enjoying the magic all year round and all of the perks that come with it! My family always used our discounts at restaurants and on merchandise at all four theme parks. 

    Please feel free to come back to see us if you have any more questions as you get ready to plan your next magical visit. It’s always our pleasure to help you with your plans and share our planning tips with you!
