We’ve been on the phone with Disney this morning to confirm some details for existing pass holders. Below are answers to the most commonly asked questions we’ve been receiving as well as an email we received from Disney Destinations.
Will existing passes be automatically converted to the new passes? – Answer: No
Can existing pass holders upgrade to the new passes? – Answers: Yes. Existing pass holders have the option of waiting until their current passes renew or upgrading now for the price difference between their existing pass and the new pass.
Is the upgrade fee prorated? – Answer: No. The upgrade fee is a flat fee regardless of how long you have left on your existing pass.
With the new PhotoPass benefit, who’s pictures do I get to see? – Answer: As of now, your unlimited PhotoPass downloads apply to picture of anyone you are connected to in your MyDisney account regardless of whether they have the PhotoPass benefit or not. Please note, we were told this was “for now” and was being evaluated and may change.
Have any benefits been removed? – Answer: No. No benefits have been removed for current annual pass holders.
