    If I upgrade my 6 day park ticket to an annual pass on my 1st day, will photo pass instantly be added as well? Will upgrading interfere with my fast passes? And even though there are 4 members in my party, can I only upgrade or do we all 4 have to upgrade?

    Hi Kathy!  Thanks for visiting us again!

    I recently found myself in almost the exact same situation you are describing.  I had purchased multi-day tickets for my family and already scheduled FastPass+ reservations when I decided to upgrade (only) my ticket to an Annual Pass.  I'm happy to let you know you since Annual Passholders are eligible to make 7 days of FastPass+ selections up to 30 days in advance, upgrading your ticket will not interfere with any FastPass+ selections you have already made. If you will also be a guest of a Disney Resort Hotel, you may schedule your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance.  You will indeed receive Disney PhotoPass downloads as soon as your pass is activated, for the entire period your Pass is valid.  You are welcome to upgrade as many or few of your party's tickets as you wish. 

    Kathy, you are going to love being an Annual Passholder!  I found the perks and discounts definitely worth the cost to upgrade.  Although your exclusive Passholder MagicBand must be mailed to your home, you may use any newly purchased or active MagicBand you have associated with your profile or your Annual Pass card.  Be sure to carry the card and a photo ID with you to receive your benefits.  You may apply your dining discounts to your entire party.  Don’t forget to look for the Annual Passholder entrances at the Theme Parks.  I was able to bring my entire party with me through the tapstyles.

    Let us know if you have additional questions about becoming an Annual Passholder.
