    Hi! Wondering if there’s a “put the cost of todays visit towards an annual pass” policy at WDW. Visiting end of May from the UK. As APs are not available yet, if we book a standard ticket and the APs go on sale can we upgrade?

    Hi Dan! Welcome to planDisney! Greetings from across the Atlantic!

    Your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is fast approaching! I’m excited about all the new memories you are bound to make. I hope you were able to snag all the dining reservations you were planning for. Since you have already purchased your tickets, I recommend making your park reservations as soon as you can. It’s always a good idea to have them secured as early as possible since availability is constantly changing. 

    Dan, you are correct. Annual Passes have been put on hold for the time being. I know many of us are anticipating a return here in the future, but no announcements have been made yet. I would suggest following the Disney Parks Blog for any updates. 

    In the past, Walt Disney World has allowed Guests to use the value of their standard park tickets toward the purchase of an Annual Pass. If they do return in time, you’ll need to visit the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs or any Guest Relations booth outside of the four theme parks upon arrival to purchase a pass. I would continue forward with your planning as normal and purchase the tickets that you will need for this trip. Keep in mind there is no guarantee that Disney will allow you to upgrade your tickets to an Annual Pass if they do return, but this has been the case in the past. 

    I hope some pixie dust flies your way and Annual Passes return in time for your visit. Regardless, I’m sure you are going to have the most amazing time visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth here soon! Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is set to open in EPCOT when you arrive! You’ll have a brand new attraction at your fingertips!

    See ya real soon!
