    Chau from FL Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Is it possible to purchase a one day ticket for the weekend (with a reservation of course) and then upgrade to the Pixie pass (or any available one) during the day? Thanks

    Hey Howdy Hey Chau and welcome to planDisney!

    There are so many different options for Florida Residents to pop over to Walt Disney World Resort and experience the Magic for just a day, a long weekend or a week-long trip. Disney usually has some great offers for Florida residents as well as discounts on tickets and passes that visiting so much more appealing. Thank you so much for your question about purchasing an annual pass on the day of your visit, let's see what we can come up with. 

    I am happy to share with you Chau, that you can make a regular theme park ticket purchase and on the day of your visit, you can visit a ticket window and upgrade to an annual pass. In most cases, you will be able to put the amount you paid for your ticket towards this pass which will reduce the upfront cost. At this time, it looks like only the Disney Pixie Dust Pass is available for Florida residents which looks like you will qualify! Just make sure you have your proper identification with you to qualify for this special Florida resident offer. 

    There is so much that awaits you when you choose to purchase an annual pass for Walt Disney World. You will have access to so many special discounts throughout the parks and resorts, invitations to special events and passholder merchandise. Did you know there is a special Facebook group for Disney World Annual Passholders? There you will be able to connect with the full passholder community to share your expertise and experiences and get the most up-to-date news and information about all the special perks of being an annual passholder. 

    I hope you enjoy your day, and many more to come with your annual pass, in the Most Magical Place on Earth. Please feel free to stop back and let us know if you have any further questions, we would be happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
