    I purchased an Annual Pass using the Monthly Payment Program for Florida residents. If I upgrade my Annual Pass from Pixie Dust to Sorcerer do I have pay the difference in full or can I remain on the monthly payment plan ?

    Hey there, Eric!

    Welcome back to planDisney and thanks for returning with your question about Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passes. Being part of the Annual Passholder family is a wonderful way to maximize your time in the theme parks and take advantage of exclusive benefits and discounts! When it comes to choices of pass types and flexibility in payment options, Florida Residents get a little extra pixie dust. I'm happy to help you understand how Annual Pass upgrades work!

    Eric, it sounds like you're currently a Disney Pixie Dust Passholder utilizing the Florida Resident Monthly Payment Program. (I hope you've enjoyed your time as an Annual Passholder thus far!) Pending availability, Guests are welcome to upgrade to other Annual Pass types for which they are eligible. While your current pass type won't enable you to enter the theme parks on weekends, the Disney Sorcerer Pass will allow you entry on most days with limited blockout dates! Eric, I've confirmed with a Cast Member that, when you upgrade your pass type online, the difference in price between the two passes will be due at the time of upgrade, but your existing monthly payment plan installments will remain the same. Alternatively, if you'll be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth soon, you could stop by any Guest Relations location or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs to complete your Annual Pass upgrade, Eric! There, a friendly Cast Member can help you to amend your contract and monthly payment plan. It's important to note that your upgraded pass will have the same expiration date as the original pass, per the Annual Pass Terms & Conditions.

    Did you know that Annual Passholders receive discounts on many special events, like Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party!? If you've been considering partaking in either (or both!) of these festive offerings, be sure to apply your discount! Whenever I dine or shop at the Walt Disney World Resort, I always ask a Cast Member which affiliate group deals are accepted at the location. You'd be surprised at how many merchandise and dining locations offer discounts for Annual Passholders or Disney Vacation Club Members! I encourage you to check out The Passholder Buzz in the My Disney Experience mobile app to stay up-to-date on the latest discounts and offerings.

    Eric, I hope you've found this information useful and I wish you many magical memories as a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passholder! If you have any additional questions, please stop back by planDisney again anytime. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
