    I recently purchased hthe pixie pass but realized it's not working with my work schedule. Can I upgrade to the pirate pass?

    Hey there, hi there, Rhian!

    Welcome to planDisney! I’m elated you stopped by with your question for us. 

    I’m glad to hear you decided to join the Annual Passholder family! The one thing I absolutely love about being a passholder is that the magic is always there, and there’s nothing better than returning to my happy place all year! I completely understand why you’d want to upgrade your Disney Pixie Dust Pass to a Disney Pirate Pass, as it has more flexibility. 

    Rhian, I called and spoke to a friendly Cast Member at the Annual Passholders line and was told you can upgrade your Annual Pass! Yippie! If you already activated your current Disney Pixie Dust Pass, your newly upgraded pass will have the same expiration date as your first pass. If you have not yet activated your pass, you can get full use of the upgrade benefits with a new expiration, beginning when you first activate the pass as you use it to enter the theme parks for the first time.

    If you paid in full, you can upgrade your pass by calling the Annual Passholder line. If you’ve opted for the monthly payment program, you will want to call the number listed here and choose option 3 and then option 1.
    Keep up to date with the Passholder Buzz on your My Disney Experience Mobile App! It features exclusive videos and tells you about limited-time offerings. 

    Here’s to many enchanting visits, Rhian!
