    Can an unused ticket with pre-set dates be used to pay renewal of annual pass

    Hiya Bonnie!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I am so glad you asked us this question today, Bonnie, as this is one of the many things that I love the most about Disney tickets. I also see that your visit is coming so soon - you must be so excited! You have picked such a magical time to visit with the World's Most Magical Celebration and the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival in full bloom.

    To answer your question, yes, unused tickets with pre-set dates can be used as a credit toward your Annual Pass renewal. However, the process is a little more complicated and depends on the current situation. First, this can only be done by a Cast Member in person at a ticketing window. For this reason, the process may be a bit tricky as you have to be within your renewal window during your trip. If you are within your renewal window, you can go to a ticketing window at the main entrance of any of the four parks or visit the Disney Springs Guest Relations locations, and they will be able to renew your Annual Pass for you. Second, your pass must be currently sold, so you would only be able to use your unused tickets towards your renewal if you own the Disney Pixie Dust Pass and are a Florida resident. To know precisely when Annual Passes go back on sale, I recommend keeping an eye on the Disney Parks Blog and the Walt Disney World website. To clarify, these requirements only apply if you want to use your unused tickets towards your renewal, but you would still be able to renew any Annual Pass even if they are not currently being sold.

    Now, once your Annual Pass has been renewed, you will have a whole year full of magic ahead of you! Make sure to catch the rest of the 50th-anniversary celebrations as it continues through the spring of 2023. Also, I cannot recommend visiting the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival enough. With unique treats, breathtaking views of EPCOT in full bloom, topiaries of your favourite characters and themed activities, this festival is a must-do in my book. If you have visited the festival in previous years, you will see returning favourites such as Spike's Pollen-Nation Exploration scavenger hunt. However, make sure to stop by the brand new Encanto-inspired booth "La Isla Fresca" between the Morocco and France pavilions. We may not talk about Bruno, but we must talk about this booth's delicious arepas and dessert!

    I hope this was helpful, Bonnie, and that you and your loved ones have the best day ever on your upcoming Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your magical visit, don't hesitate to reach out. You and me, we're in a club now, and you're as welcome as can be!

    Have a magical day,
