    I was looking at purchasing a vacation package but am interested in the annual passes. Can I upgrade the tickets? I read you can do it at the park. Also, if I plan on upgrading to annual passes do I need not add the park hopper option?

    Hi Shelton!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  It's a pleasure to help out a fellow resident of the great state of Alabama.   I hope you are having a wonderful time planning your upcoming vacation to Walt Disney World.

    Shelton, you will be able to upgrade a ticket that would be included in a Magic Your Way vacation package.  In fact I was with a fellow panelist when she did just that in February.   We all had a Magic Your Way plus Dining package with 3 day tickets.   She was able to upgrade the 3 day ticket to an Annual Pass at the Guest Relations window at Magic Kingdom.   She just needed to pay the difference in price of the 3 day ticket and the price of an Annual Pass.    Park Hopper tickets do cost a little more, but you would be able to use the total cost of the ticket you purchase with your package towards the upgrade.  You will end up paying the price of the Annual Pass but you may have to pay less when you upgrade if you have the Park Hopper option on your vacation package.   It's totally up to you what you would like to do.

    I do have a few tips about upgrading, you must have at least one full day left on your ticket in order to upgrade to an Annual Pass.  Upgrades can be made at any Guest Relations windows at the theme parks or Downtown Disney.  My final tip,  enjoy the year of magical memories you will make with your new Annual Pass purchase.  You will have 365 days to enjoy the Most Magical Place on Earth.  How awesome is that?

    Thanks for for stopping by again.  Please visit us again with any other questions you may have about your trip.
