    We plan to go to Disneyland Resort on December 23rd and have tier 5 passes, but realize we need tier 6 passes to attend that day. How can we upgrade our passes?

    Hi there, Nicholas! Welcome to planDisney!

    A holiday week trip to the Happiest Place on Earth will certainly leave you with some merry memories! I'm so glad to see you are aware of the tier system for single-day theme park tickets. I have some good news for you! You are able to upgrade tickets to a higher tier by visiting the Main Entrance Ticket Booth. Yes, this would require an in-person visit, so I'm hoping that you are local and can swing by ahead of your park day. Once you have the upgraded tickets, the system will allow you to make a theme park reservation. Since you are planning to visit during Christmas week, you'll want to get these on the books well ahead of time. Currently, reservations are open for December 23rd, but they are limited and subject to availability, so this will likely change as we move into the holiday season!

    If you aren't local, I would recommend calling and speaking to the Guest Services team about your situation directly. There's a chance they may have the same information for you, but it never hurts to discuss with a Cast Member directly!

    While you are getting ready for your holiday time visit, you'll want to check out all the seasonal must-sees and must-dos ... and must-eats! Be sure to take a peek at the Entertainment Schedule which will release about six weeks ahead of your visit. If you love a good sweet treat, take some time to read through the Disney Parks Blog Foodie Guide to EARmark a few things to taste during your day! The holidays are so incredibly special in the parks, so I like to make sure I have time to do the things you can't find at any other time of year, like riding "it's a small world" Holiday and taking a spin through Jack Skellington's Haunted Mansion Holiday! End your day with a viewing of "Believe ... In Holiday Magic" Fireworks Spectacular or World of Color - Seasons of Light ... it will be the sugarplum on top of your Disneyland day! 

    Nicholas, I sure hope this was helpful, and you are strolling through the parks humming those holiday tunes very soon. If you have any more questions, you know where to find us here at planDisney!

    Be merry!
