    I have an upcoming 8 day vacation with the hopper added. How can I upgrade this to an annual pass for an out of state resident. Our on property vacation starts October 30th. Thanks in advance... Also how can I search for topics on PlanDisney?

    Hey there, John! Welcome back to planDisney! 

    Eight magical days at the Walt Disney World Resort sounds practically perfect! And it also sounds like you're thinking of adding even more pixie dust to your plans with an Annual Pass. I'm happy to help you make that Disney dream come true!

    Since you'll be arriving at Walt Disney World in only a couple of days (woo-hoooo!), I recommend upgrading your tickets to a Walt Disney World Annual Pass in person while you're there. It won't take long, and you can complete the transaction right up until the last day of your visit. Just stop by any Guest Relations location in the theme parks, or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. I think that last one is the best option, since it's a nice space that's easy to get into and out of, and it won't take away from any of your theme park time. If you have a Disney Springs day in your plans, definitely give some thought to upgrading your tickets there!

    I'm so glad you've found our advice to be helpful, John! When perusing the planDisney website, you'll see a box near the top of the page that says "I want to know more about..." over the photo of Cinderella Castle. You can type in a keyword there to search for a specific topic. You can also click on one of the subjects under that photo, like "Walt Disney World," or "Disneyland," and then enter your search term in the box on the next page to filter your results by destination.

    Also, be sure to check out our Panel Extras page for everything from packing tips to our favorite restaurant orders. And if you're on Instagram, give us a follow at @plandisneypanel, where we're sharing tons of tips and info every single day!

    Thank you so much for stopping by to see us, John. I hope you have many, many magical Disney days to come!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
