    Can I upgrade my passes outside of my renewal period?

    Hi Kristen! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    As you likely know, an annual pass to the Walt Disney World Resort is a great value for anyone who wants to visit the parks multiple times throughout the year. Not only that, you get access to special offers and discounts that are exclusively for Annual Passholders. Currently, there is one option for those looking to make a new annual pass purchase. It is the Pixie Dust Pass and is available to Florida residents only. Follow along on the Disney Parks Blog for any possible future announcements regarding annual passes. I know I will definitely be considering an annual pass if they go on sale again!

    Current annual passholders are able to upgrade into a different category of annual pass up to 60 days before their renewal date or 30 days after. They can renew at any Walt Disney World Resort ticket window, online, or by calling the Annual Passholders line. Please note that if you are renewing through the Monthly Payment Program for Florida residents, you must do so in person or by phone, not online.

    If you are looking to add some more magic to your current annual pass, there are ways to do so outside of your renewal period. You can add the Water Park and Sports Option or Disney PhotoPass Downloads to your annual pass at any time. Please keep in mind that these magical extras will expire on the same date that the annual pass is tied to. More information can be found on the annual pass page.

    Kristen, I hope you continue to make many magical memories with your annual pass. Please reach out to planDisney again if you have any questions in the future! We are always happy to help!
