    Can I upgrade my pass if I am not in my renewal period if I pay the difference in full when the passes go on sale again? If so, how do I do so?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Jessica. We're so glad you're here to ask us this question. Isn't it exciting? Magic Key pass sales will reopen tomorrow. It's going to be a great (and busy) day, so let's make sure you're prepared.

    I called and chatted with a magical Cast Member who shared that you indeed can upgrade your existing Magic Key pass to a higher tier pass as long as that pass is available for sale. The Cast Member also shared that the only way to complete this transaction is by visiting a ticket booth at the Disneyland Resort in person. Keep in mind that when you upgrade your Magic Key pass, your new pass will have the same expiration date as the original pass. Additionally, upgrades are subject to pass availability as determined by Disney and may be available from time to time or at no time.

    I hope you've been enjoying your time as a Magic Key holder so far, Jessica. I can definitely understand your desire to upgrade to a higher level. In fact, I upgraded to a higher tier during my last renewal window. I enjoy all the perks of being a Magic Key holder, but what I love most is being able to add a little magic to my day when I need it (with a valid theme park reservation). 

    Jessica, I hope this gives you the information you were looking for to get ready for the big day tomorrow. I'll be sending all the pixie dust your way in the hopes that you will soon be enjoying your upgraded Magic Key pass. Here's to your year becoming a bit more magical!
