    Hello there! My wife and I will be visiting WDW in December and we have 3-Day ticket with Park Hopper. We are considering upgrading to Annual Passes. Can we upgrade prior to our Dec trip? How do we do it, and what do they credit back for the tickets?

    Hi Giovanni and welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting that you'll be visiting during the holiday season!  It is my absolute favorite time to visit Walt Disney World.  I love to see the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs decorated for the holidays and I also love all of the limited time sweets and treats that are offered!  I took a look at the menus from the various Holiday Kitchens for EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays yesterday and I cannot wait to get my hands on all of the cookies for the Holiday Cookie Stroll.  It's one of the things my family looks forward to every year and I spotted a new cookie this year!

    You can absolutely upgrade your park tickets to annual passes prior to your arrival.  Being a Walt Disney World Passholder will not only give you admission to the theme parks for a year, but it also gives you complimentary theme park parking, discounts on Disney Resort hotel stays, Disney dining and on merchandise.  Just a couple of visits pays for the price of the pass!  To upgrade your current tickets to annual passes, give a call to a friendly Cast Member who can access your My Disney Experience account to help you out.  You should be able to credit what you paid for the tickets towards the upgrade and then you will owe the difference in price.  You can also upgrade your tickets in person at any ticket window at the theme parks or at the Disney Ticket Center in Disney Springs.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
