    We purchased the FL resident APs & paid in full at the time of purchase. When we renew, can we switch to the monthly payment plan? Also, if we renew early & upgrade at the same time (to gold passes), are the upgraded passes ready to use right away?

    Hi Nicole!

    It's so wonderful to help a fellow Floridian! As an Annual Passholder too, I can tell you that the answer to your questions are yes and yes! Although you paid the original annual passes in full, when you renew you can take advantage of the amazing payment plan offered to us as Florida Residents and the upgraded passes would be available to use immediately. A few weeks ago, I too upgraded my annual pass to Gold and was able to get the payment plan. One of the nice features of the Gold Annual Pass is that you get free PhotoPass downloads. I renewed and upgraded my ticket at the ticket window at Disney's Animal Kingdom and was able to use the benefits of the upgraded ticket immediately. Hope this helps!

    Did you know?: The Walt Disney World Resort has some great offers on Disney Resort Rooms for Florida Residents and Annual Passholders! For more information, please visit this page: Special Offers and Deals

    It has been a pleasure assisting you! Please feel free to send in any other questions you may have. 

    Thanks for sending you questions to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Happy Planning!
