    Is it possible to upgrade a pass before it expires? And if so, would it be the full difference fee or would it be reduced as your getting less time out of it?

    Hello Chris!

    Thanks for stopping by with a question for us. I'm more than happy to help a fellow Annual Passholder. Let's discuss!

    As an existing Annual Passholder, you can upgrade to a higher tier pass before your renewal window as long as the higher tier is currently available for purchase. The difference in price will be due at the time of upgrade and your expiration date will remain the same. Keep in mind, that the price is not prorated based on the number of months used or remaining on your pass. The same is true for pass add-ons like Disney PhotoPass Downloads or the Water Park and Sports Option. 

    I'd recommend reviewing your current expiration date to see if an upgrade makes sense now, or if you'd benefit from upgrading to a higher pass tier within your standard renewal window. If you are early in your pass' active window the upgrade cost would be a benefit, particularly if you are hoping to enjoy fewer blockout dates. If your pass is close to expiration, the cost might not give as much of a return. You can check your upgrade cost online, via the My Disney Experience Mobile App, or by contacting a Cast Member by phone.

    Chris, I hope this clears up any confusion. Please come back and see us again if you have any additional questions, or need assistance planning your next visit.
