    Can I upgrade a park hopper to a park hopper plus at the water park window? At the resort (Boardwalk Resort)? Can I upgrade a park hopper plus to an annual pass (the DVC gold pass) if I haven’t yet used any of the “plus” options? Thank you!

    Hi there, Sue!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a question for us. I'm more than happy to help. It sounds like you're planning to get the most out of your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation and possibly even become an Annual Passholder. That's so exciting!

    You can upgrade your tickets at any point during your vacation as long as the tickets have not expired. Just stop by Guest Relations at any of the theme parks, water parks or Disney Springs and a friendly Cast Member can assist you. You won't be able to do that at your resort hotel and will need to visit one of these locations to make any changes to your tickets. If you want to take advantage of the Disney Vacation Club Member discount on an Annual Pass, just be sure to have your photo ID and your Disney Vacation Club Membership card with you. You'll need both of those in order to purchase your Annual Pass using the discount. 

    I hope this helps and if you think of any other questions, please just let us know. Enjoy your vacation and make lots of magical memories!
