    I have a reservation for May. The package is fully paid for already - park tickets w hopper option and resort hotel stay. If I were to buy an Annual Pass now and begin using it, would I be able to have my 5 day park ticket price for May offset somehow?

    Hi there, Erin!

    Welcome to planDisney. We're happy you've stopped by with a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! It sounds like you've booked a vacation package and are planning to visit next spring. The countdown is on! Now, let's discuss the topic of theme park ticket upgrades.

    Erin, I'm thrilled to hear you're considering becoming part of the Annual Passholder family! As an Annual Passholder myself, I've found great value in my pass. It's allowed my family to visit the theme parks more frequently and provided us with some fantastic benefits and discounts! I'm happy to inform you that I've confirmed with a friendly Cast Member that theme park tickets purchased as part of a vacation package are eligible to upgrade to an Annual Pass, pending availability. Erin, at the current time, Guests residing outside of Florida and who are not Disney Vacation Club Members may purchase the Disney Incredi-Pass (subject to change). I recommend checking the Walt Disney World Resort website just before your visit to see what options are available at that time. To upgrade your theme park ticket, simply visit a theme park ticket booth or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs! The value paid for your original ticket will be applied to the upgrade, and you'll be responsible for any difference in cost at that time. Though your ticket will be eligible to be upgraded through the last day of its remaining entitlements, I recommend upgrading it on the first day of its use, because the expiration date of your Annual Pass will be set for one year from the day of your ticket's first use. Plus, that way, you'll be able to access special offers beginning early on in your trip!

    Once you've secured your place in the Annual Passholder family, I recommend downloading a digital pass to your mobile device's wallet using Disney MagicMobile service. This will allow you to quickly confirm your Annual Passholder affiliation when taking advantage of discounts at dining and merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Erin, I hope you've found this information helpful as you continue to count down the days until your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I wish you many magical moments in the theme parks as an Annual Passholder! You're welcome to return to planDisney anytime with any additional planning questions you may have. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
