    can i upgrade my military discounted one day ticket to a disney pass for the year

    Hi there, Arielle! 

    Welcome to planDisney. I’m so glad you stopped by to ask us your question about theme park ticket upgrades. I hope your day has been perfectly pixie-dusted so far!

    Yes, eligible Disneyland Resort tickets may be upgraded to an available Magic Key pass, and this includes military tickets. If you decide to purchase a pass, the upgrade amount (the total difference in price between your discounted ticket and your chosen pass type) will be paid in full at that time. Please keep in mind that you must upgrade while your 1-day ticket is still valid, so be sure to visit a Main Entrance Ticket Booth in the Esplanade between the two theme parks before they close on the day of your visit. 

    You may also have the option to upgrade your ticket in the Disneyland mobile app (this option appears underneath the ticket’s barcode if available), so be sure to check there as well. If you are able to upgrade in the app, you can skip visiting the ticket booths! As of this moment, all but one of the Magic Key pass types are available for purchase. You can upgrade your ticket to an Inspire Key, Believe Key, or Enchant Key to enjoy a whole year of magical theme park visits!

    I hope this helps, Arielle, and please don’t hesitate to write back with more planning questions. Also, be sure to check out the Magic Key pass discounts to see how you can make the most of all the benefits available to pass holders at the Disneyland Resort!

    Wishing you magic,
