    Hello! We have a visit planned in September, and hopefully another in December. We are considering purchasing annual passes but not sure which one we need. If we buy a Sorcerer pass could we upgrade it to an incredi pass at a later date?

    Hey there, Amanda! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad you've stopped by with such a great planning question.

    I'm so excited to see the magic is calling you, Amanda, and you plan on answering the call by becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder. I became an Annual Passholder in 2015 and have loved every magical moment since. Being able to return to my happy place time and time again truly brings joy and magic to my everyday life. I'm so excited for you to have this same joy and magic, and I couldn't be happier to answer your question today.

    The Disney Sorcerer Pass is the Annual Pass exclusively for Florida residents and Disney Vacation Club Members, and this is the Pass my family and I have and love. Upgrading of Annual Passes is offered from time to time, and at this time, Annual Pass upgrades are being offered by Disney. When I log into My Disney Experience account, I am currently given the option to upgrade my Disney Sorcerer Pass to a Disney Incredi-Pass by paying the difference in price. 

    Although Annual Pass upgrades are currently being offered, sometimes, upgrades are only available during your Annual Pass renewal window (60 days before and 30 days after your Pass expiration date). So, I suggest that you don't count on that and purchase the Annual Pass that works for your current plans. Be sure to check out the blockout dates for the Sorcerer Pass to be sure that they won't interfere with your pixie-dusted plans. The Sorcerer Pass does have blockout dates beginning December 20, 2023, so this is definitely something you'll want to check out before purchasing that Pass. Also, just be aware if you do upgrade your Annual Pass, your Pass expiration date would remain the same as the original Pass.

    You can purchase your Annual Pass at any Guest Relations location outside of each theme park or in Disney Springs. Whichever one you choose, your Annual Pass will be your key to the magic, and I can't wait to see what you unlock, Amanda! Welcome to the Passholder family!

    I hope this was helpful, Amanda, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable upcoming holidays! Please stop by any time with any questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    Adventure is out there!
