    If I want to upgrade a ticket --such as a 4 day ticket to an annual pass, after 3 days are used...how much credit will I get? 1 days worth or 4?

    Hi, Paul! There are so many benefits to becoming an Annual Passholder, so I am glad you are thinking of upgrading your Disney Theme Park Ticket! I do want to encourage you to upgrade it as soon as possible during your trip so you can begin taking advantage of those benefits. There are 10-20% off merchandise and dining discounts for passholders at select locations and, in my experience, these can really add up over the course of a trip! You can also save on select tours, activities, and special event tickets. The Disney After Hours events are so incredibly magical, even more so as passholders are able to purchase tickets with a $30 discount!

    When you do decide to upgrade your Disney Theme Park Ticket to a Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass, you will be able to apply the entire price you paid for your ticket to the price of the Annual Pass. Waiting until the last day of your ticket's use will not alter the price that can be put towards the upgrade, but you will miss out on using those benefits the other days! So, as I said earlier, it is best to do that sooner rather than later. You can do this ticket upgrade at any theme park ticket window or at Guest Relations inside the theme parks or at Disney Springs.

    Since I am sure you will be heading back for more magical fun once you become an Annual Passholder, keep an eye on the Special Offers page for any Annual Passholder rooms discounts. These usually offer a bit better discount than the standard special offers.

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question and please let us know if you have any others!

Hi, I'm Brandy, a speech pathologist and busy driver of daughters to marching band and dance events. My Annual Pass is used often to check out new Disney must-dos and resort changes. I enjoy giving advice about itinerary and FastPass+ planning, Epcot's fantastic festivals, Memory Maker, and transportation at the Resort. The time I spend at Walt Disney World Resort is distinctive because it is the one place I can forget other responsibilities and focus on having the time of my life with my family!
