Ticket Upgrades

Did you know you may be able to apply the value of your theme park ticket toward the purchase of a Disneyland Annual Passport?

How Upgrading a Theme Park Ticket Works

If you visit the Disneyland Resort theme parks using a ticket and then decide you’d like an Annual Passport so you can return more often during the year, you can apply the paid value of your Disneyland Resort ticket toward the purchase price of an Annual Passport, with some limitations.

Upgrading your theme park ticket to an Annual Passport is easy—just follow the simple steps using the Disneyland app or stop by any Disneyland Resort Main Entrance ticket booth during your visit. Plus, the Disneyland app also gives Guests the option of adding Disney MaxPass to Annual Passports that don’t already include the feature.

Where and When to Upgrade Your Ticket

Disneyland Resort theme park tickets may be upgraded by following these simple steps via the Disneyland app or by visiting any Main Entrance ticket booth:

  • One-day tickets – link your ticket to your account and upgrade by midnight on the day of your visit to the Disneyland Resort.
  • Multi-day tickets – upgrade on or before the last valid day of your ticket.

At the ticket booth, you’ll need to provide:

  • Your valid theme park ticket
  • Your valid government-issued photo ID
  • Proof of eligible residency if upgrading to a Disney Southern California Select Passport
  • Payment for the difference in price between the theme park ticket and the Passport

Important Information:

  • A used ticket may not be upgraded after the stated date and time, but the value of a wholly, unused ticket may be applied towards the purchase of a passport at any time.
  • A ticket may only be upgraded to a passport that is equal or greater in value than the ticket.
  • A ticket may only be upgraded to a single passport.
  • Passports do not guarantee theme park admission, especially during high attendance periods. Subject to capacity constraints. Admission excludes activities/events separately priced. Passport types are limited in quantity, and not all Passport types may be available at any given time. Visit Disneyland.com/AP for Annual Passport Terms and Conditions and other applicable restrictions.

Limitations and Conditions for Ticket Upgrades

  • Only the amount paid for the Disneyland Resort ticket may be used toward the upgrade to an Annual Passport at the current price.
  • Only one (1) theme park ticket may be applied toward the upgrade to the Annual Passport; tickets may not be combined for an upgrade.
  • The Guest purchasing the upgrade must be the Guest who used the ticket for Theme Park admission.
  • Special event tickets may not be used for upgrades to an Annual Passport.
