    We are planning a trip to Disneyland/DCA in October. Can we purchase 3 day tickets now online then upgrade to flex annual passes on our third day there? If so, do we need then to make a reservation for the day we upgrade?

    Greetings, Patricia, and thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m so excited for your October getaway… you’re going to love experiencing Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort!

    Yes, you can go ahead and purchase 3-Day Tickets online now, and then choose to upgrade to the Disney Flex Passport on or before your final day. You’ll just need to upgrade before the park closes on the last valid day of your ticket. You won’t need to worry about making a reservation for the third day (the day you upgrade to the Passport) since you already have a ticket for that day. 

    Upgrading your theme part ticket to an Annual Passport is a simple process that can be done by using my favorite handy helper, the Disneyland app, or by stopping by any Main Entrance Ticket Booth during your visit. Since the Disney Flex Passport doesn’t include Disney MaxPass, you can choose to add it to your Annual Passport via the app, too. I’m a huge fan of MaxPass – not only does it allow you to make Disney FASTPASS selections from the convenience of your phone, but it also includes unlimited digital downloads of your favorite Disney PhotoPass images!

    Here’s the Entertainment Schedule for your arrival day, so you can start mapping out the magic now! Be sure to check out Halloween Screams with Fireworks… it’s a spook-tacular way to celebrate the season with your favorite Disney Villains!

    I can’t wait for you to become a member of the Annual Passholder family soon… you’re going to have the most magical year! Be sure to check out all the benefits and discounts that come along with your Passport.

    Wishing you Disney magic and happy haunts!

Hello from sunny California! I currently live less than an hour from the Disneyland Resort, and have been an Annual Passholder for more than 20 years! As a mom of three kids under the age of 8, I consider myself an expert at navigating the Disneyland Resort with little ones. My family of five can’t get enough of the magic and happiness we encounter every time we step foot on Main Street, U.S.A. I look forward to sprinkling pixie dust on your next visit to the Happiest Place on Earth!
