    I am planning a family SURPRISE trip to WDW in April 2024. We are also looking to book a trip in August 2024 (not a surprise). Will I be able to upgrade our April AND August parc tickets to annual passes when we arrive to our April trip ?

    Bonjour Kamila et Bienvenue à planDisney - it's so wonderful to connect with Canadians on their way to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Growing up and having spent so many winters in Quebec, I can only imagine how nice it is to look outside the window and dream about the warm weather here in Orlando - especially if you're planning a big surprise trip! As you can imagine, beyond the Special Offers, Deals and Discounts that are currently available to fellow Canadians, visitors and snowbirds alike have learned that purchasing an Annual Pass already becomes worth it if you're already spending about two weeks visiting the theme parks and taking advantage of All-Day Park Hopper access this year.

    I visited our friends at Guest Relations and they let me know that once you arrive here in April and the family has been delightfully surprised, they can help you with your upgrade and may use the value of your existing ticket purchase toward your shiny new Annual Passes. If you're not heading directly to a theme park on the day of your arrival, you can even ask the Guest Services folks at the Welcome Center in Disney Springs!

    While you're here, don't forget to spend some time at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival, or even the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival so you can be proud of how much families around the world happen to love the offerings near the Canada Pavilion or perhaps shocked at the quirky things they do with Poutine here in Florida. (I must admit, I have been pleasantly surprised on more than one occasion!) In the meantime, come back to planDisney again for any other tips and tricks or even connect with Candace and Nilson, the newest Canadian members of our team!

    Don't be surprised if you become tempted to use your Annual Pass way more often for more surprise visits - it totally happens!
