    We traveled to wdw in dec is it too late to convert to an ap as we are going back in the spring? Also how does buying the dining plan work if you have an ap?

    Hi there, Nathan!

    Disney ticket upgrades are no problem at all. Please remember that these transactions are done on a cash- or cash-equivalent basis (e.g. debit card).

    Likely the most critical question is that of length of time before date of expiry. If the ticket being upgraded has been used, the Annual Pass will be set to expire one year from the date of first use of the ticket being upgraded.

    If the ticket has not been used, the expiration date will be one year from the date the upgrade happened.

    Effective August 1, 2011, the last day of your ticket is the last day that you can upgrade. If for example, you have a three day ticket and your third day of use was a Friday, from Saturday onward you cannot upgrade, even though it is within the fourteen day "use window". The ticket cannot be "done" at time of upgrade.

    This does not apply to to tickets on the Key To The World, where the Guest's name is pre-printed on the ticket. Simply present a photo ID when you upgrade.

    If you purchased your Magic Your Way tickets at any discount, you will not be charged the difference, provided the ticket has been activated.

    However, if your discounted ticket has not been used, you will be assessed the difference between the discounted price and the current gate price before the upgrade charge is calculated.

    The Disney Dining Plan works just the same with an Annual Pass as with a Magic Your Way package. Any package booked with the plan is then subject to the terms and conditions of those reservations.

    Have a wonderful time!

    See you later, celebrator,
