Has anyone upgraded from a lower level pass to premium before their pass expired? Does Disney allow this? and do we just pay a pro-rated difference? Thanks.

The difference used to be prorated but not any more. It doesn't matter when you upgrade- yo pay the full difference between your current pass and the pass you're upgrading too. I asked a CM this question this past week so that I would know the answer when this question came up. - LilSterner  5503.0 #19 4:41PM
This is correct. Even if you upgrade the day before your pass expires you pay the whole difference. So if the pass you have was 100 and the one you want to upgrade to is 300, you would owe 200. The upgrade cost is not eligible for monthly payment plan - Pixarprincess  544.4 #376 4:59PM
Yup! That's the same answer I got when we bought our passes and were trying to decide which ones to get. - CAdreamer  98.8 #3611 5:08PM
This is right. I wanted to upgrade last year 2 months before my Deluxe pass expired and the cast member told me it wasn't worth it because of having to pay the full difference I just waited and went for Premium this time around - QueenBella  175.0 #2317 5:11PM

Everyone welcomes the opportunity to obtain more money. People in general love money. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 4:57PM
its not prorated and you have to pay the difference in full..You will have the same expiration date and You can not make payments on the upgrade amount - JollyRoger5  3851.3 #38 1:15PM
You just pay whatever the difference is between both passes upfront. Two years ago I renewed my Deluxe AP w/ parking and then upgraded it to a Premium the next month just because of the bigger discount for merchandise and no blackout dates. - KermitFan13  653.7 #307 4:38PM
...and because the difference was like, $30. 😜 - bluefairy  643.8 #313 4:42PM
LoL, yes. But I had to upgrade mine because it was blocked out two days out of four I was going to be there with friends and I didn't want to pay for a block out ticket those days. - KermitFan13  653.7 #307 4:51PM
$30 *is* less than $140. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - bluefairy  643.8 #313 5:45PM
If you upgrade to deluxe or premium you get $20.00 off the renewal price.. That's about I believe - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 5:06PM
And I'm getting this from the renewal letter my brother got. And I upgraded from Deluxe to Premium and did get 20.00 off - MEHlanie_Mouse  1116.0 #162 5:08PM
I might have to downgrade from a deluxe to a SoCal😞in April. Does that info page mention if any level gets the $20.00 saving if renewed early? Thanks - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1570.0 #106 5:22PM
Only deluxe and premium are eligible for the $20 discount. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 5:45PM
Thank you@bluefairy. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1570.0 #106 6:19PM
Yes, you would just pay the difference. - Armenda  1159.7 #153 1:12PM
sweet thanks. thinking about upgrading. πŸ˜„ - ElSuperRaton  4469.4 #31 1:13PM
We tried to upgrade to premium 2 weeks before ours expired in August and there was no pro-rated discount. - Linzee  1188.8 #146 1:14PM
Hmm. so there must be a time limit. thanks for the info. - ElSuperRaton  4469.4 #31 1:16PM
I don't think there's a time limit. They will gladly upgrade you at any time, I'm sure. - MeridaFan  4243.7 #34 2:02PM
You pay the difference as well as continue to pay your monthly charges if your doing a monthly plan. Also, thanks for reminding me I need to call the AP office about something later. - CM_Shadowgamer  2515.9 #56 1:15PM
Also, the expiration date remains the same, so it's really only worth it if you have quite a bit of time left till renewal or you have to pay for block out tickets anyway. - bluefairy  643.8 #313 1:38PM
we will be upgrading from a deluxe pass To A premium pass in May... they said all we had to do was pay the difference - LennaH  159.7 #2571 1:48PM
