    Caroline from CA Asked

    (1) Can I upgrade a So Cal Resident 3 day pass to an annual pass? (2) How about applying an unused So Cal Resident 3 day pass towards renewal of my current annual pass that is about 2 expire. Thanks

    Good day, Caroline!

    Welcome and thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    It sounds like you took advantage of the SoCal Resident Ticket offer and now you’re looking to upgrade to an Annual Passport! What a wonderful idea! Three days at Disneyland is great, but a whole year is even better! I have good news for you! You can upgrade a SoCal Resident Ticket to a brand new Annual Passport! Simply visit a Main Entrance ticket booth on or before the last day you use the ticket. You'll be able to apply the amount paid towards your new Annual Passport.

    Current Annual Passports that are set to expire are not eligible to have existing tickets applied to their cost. But, you can let your current Annual Passport expire and then use the SoCal Resident Ticket to purchase a brand new Annual Passport. Please keep in mind that any benefits that were “grandfathered in” to your previous Passport, will be lost when the Passport expires. For example, if you had previously added benefits that are no longer available such as parking and Disney PhotoPass, those will not transfer to the new Passport. 

    No matter what you choose to do, an Annual Passport will allow you to take advantage of everything new coming to the Disneyland Resort! Like the all-new “Magic Happens” Parade debuting at Disneyland Park on February 28, 2020. You can also visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge to experience the newest attraction, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance, which opened January 17, 2020. Or head to Disney California Adventure Park where Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival will take place from February 28 to April 21, 2020. 

    Keep the magic going all year long and head back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with future questions!
