    Can you upgrade before renewal

    Hi Diane! Thanks for reaching out to planDisney!

    An annual pass to the Walt Disney World Resort is a great option for anyone that doesn't want the magic to end! If you visit the parks frequently, they can be a great value for you and your family. They also come with special perks, discounts, and so much more! On top of that, there are usually different options offered to best fit the needs and budget of each family. When they were all on sale last, there were four different options. As of today's date, the Disney Pixie Dust Pass is the only available option for new passholders (it is for Florida residents only). Since that could change in the future, keep an eye on the annual pass page to see if other passes go on sale!

    If you are a current passholder, you will be able to upgrade your Annual Pass up to 60 days before and 30 days after expiration. You can renew online, at any Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket window, or by calling (407) 560-7277. If you are renewing through the Monthly Payment Program for Florida residents, you will not be able to call to renew by phone, but you can do so online or in person.

    If you'd like to add the Water Park and Sports Option or Disney PhotoPass Downloads, and you have a current Disney Incredi-Pass, Disney Sorcerer Pass, Disney Pirate Pass, or Disney Pixie Dust Pass, you can do that outside of your renewal window. Please keep in mind that these add-on options will expire on the same date that the annual pass is tied to. More information on these magical add-ons can be found on the Benefits of Becoming a Passholder page.

    If you have any further questions about your annual pass, the Frequently Asked Questions section of the Walt Disney World website is very helpful. Plus, you can always reach out to planDisney for any Disney vacation advice you may need.

    Diane, with your annual pass, you are bound to enjoy many more magical experiences!  

    Have fun,
