    can I upgrade my park hopper ticket to an annual pass?

    Howdy Joel!

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am so excited you are thinking of upgrading your current theme park tickets to an Annual Pass.   I have been an Annual Passholder for 4 years now and I absolutely adore it.  Not only do I get 365 days of entrance to magical Theme Parks, I also receive fantastic discounts on food, merchandise and even Disney Resort Hotel stays.  It has been a wonderful investment.

    In order to upgrade your Park Hopper ticket to an Annual Pass you will need to stop by any Walt Disney World Theme Park Ticket Window or Guest Relations location.   Upgrades must be done in person and you must have at least one full day of admission left on your ticket.   Remember that tickets expire 14 days from first use, so make sure you have at least one day left and they have not expired.   Once you are ready to upgrade you will be charged the difference in the price you paid for the Park Hopper ticket and the Annual Pass.   Isn't that great?   To get the most bang for your buck, upgrade when you have one day left on your ticket.   For example if you have a 5 day Park Hopper ticket,   upgrade before you enter the park for your fifth day.   You will still get to apply the full price of the Park Hopper ticket  as well as get a few more days on your Annual Pass for the year. 

    I hope this has helped.   If you have any more questions about becoming an Annual Passholder or any other Walt Disney World Resort vacation concerns, please let me know.  I love to help fellow Disney loving Guests.
