    I have purchased a 5 day park hopper to use for our trip in June. If I want to upgrade to annual pass, can I do that the first day for the entire amount to be applied to the cost of the upgrade? Would I then have to make park reservations for that trip?

    Hi there, Alex! 

    Your Most Magical vacation is just around the river bend, so this is the perfect time to create a game plan for your theme park tickets. Nothing is better than eating Pineapple DOLE Whips and getting Mickey Mouse hugs all year long as a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder

    The key to upgrading your theme park ticket to an annual pass is that there must be value left on the ticket to put toward the upgrade. As long as it isn't entirely used, a helpful Cast Member can help you with the upgrade. Be sure that you make the modification before you scan for your last day. But it seems like you won't have that to worry about if you're doing this on the first day of your visit. 

    Visit Guest Relations near the entrances of each theme park or visit the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs in order to upgrade your tickets. You can also make the upgrade via a phone call using "Existing Tickets” phone number listed on the Walt Disney World Resort website. 

    Annual passes, at the moment, do require theme park reservations. This means that, yes, you would need to make theme park reservations for the days that you're visiting the theme parks. With the Disney Incredi-Pass, you can make up to five theme park reservations at a time per annual pass. If you need help with setting up your reservations, feel free to ask the Cast Member to guide you through the process. They may even be able to set them up for you at the Guest Relations window.

    AN EXTRA GEM: Walt Disney World annual passes allow you to park hop endlessly (unless a theme park is at capacity). Check into your reserved theme park, and then hop as you please. Also, theme park reservations are not required if you're going to your first theme park choice after 2 p.m. except Magic Kingdom Park on weekends. How cool is that?

    Alex, please revisit us here at planDisney if you have more Disney vacation planning questions. I am more than happy to help! 

    Magic always,
