    I have tickets and reservations for mid October. But I am looking at getting an annual pass. If I purchase the annual pass, will I be able to get money back for the already purchased ticket as well as save any extra on the resort?

    Hello Nina!

    Welcome to planDisney! A Walt Disney World Annual Pass can be a great choice if you’ll be making a longer visit or will make two trips within a single year. In addition to park admission, you’ll also receive discounts on select merchandise and dining, access to Passholder exclusive events and merchandise, and even included theme park parking!

    Nina, you may apply the value for the theme park tickets you already have toward the purchase of an Annual Pass! While Disney Theme Park Tickets are non-refundable, the value paid for wholly unused tickets is typically not lost and can be used toward the purchase of new tickets or Annual Passes at the same or higher price point. If your theme park tickets can be upgraded to an Annual Pass, you can do this via the My Disney Experience Mobile App, by visiting a theme park ticket window or Guest Relations outside a theme park, visiting the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs, or by phone by calling 407-W-DISNEY.

    At this time, there is not an active Annual Passholder Special Offer for October resort bookings, so at this time there would be any savings on your currently booked Disney Resort Collection Hotel. Once your Annual Pass is activated, however, you could use it to book any future Passholder Special Offers.

    Enjoy your Walt Disney World Annual Pass, Nina, and have a magical day!
