    Hello - we are moving to South Carolina this summer and are currently Pirate Pass holders. When are passes are up for renewal in the fall, will we still be able to renew them? Or do we have to be Florida residents to renew a Pirate Pass? Thank you!

    Hey there, Michael! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with such a great question. I love chatting Disney with a fellow Annual Passholder!

    Well, first of all, congratulations on your upcoming move, Michael! While you may be moving further away from Walt Disney World Resort, living so close to Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort sounds like an absolute dream. Whenever you are missing The Most Magical Place on Earth, a taste of DOLE Whip or a Mickey waffle at Hilton Head Island Resort should do the trick! I'm thrilled to hear that the magic will continue to call you and your family, even from South Carolina, and that you plan on renewing your Walt Disney World Annual Passes. As soon-to-be out-of-state Passholders like me, let's chat about your options!

    Unfortunately, since you and your family are moving out of state, you will not be able to renew your Disney Pirate Passes, which are exclusively for Florida residents. But Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries!" Once you are within your renewal window, you will be able to renew your Annual Passes to the upgraded Disney Incredi-Pass and still receive the renewal discount. With no blockout dates, you'll be able to just make Theme Park Pass reservations and head to your happy place any time you are missing "Home." Now, that is pure pixie dust!

    You can renew your Annual Passes up to 60 days before and 30 days after their expiration date, so make sure you mark your calendar! You may have heard that the sales of new Walt Disney World Annual Passes are currently paused, so renewing on time will ensure that you stay in the Passholder family. A full year of fun and magical memories is priceless!

    I hope this was helpful, Michael, and I hope you stop by again with any questions you may have along the way. Best wishes on your family's move! 

    Adventure is out there!
