I have room only ressies for Apr. 22-30 already. In order to get tickets for the whole trip now, I have to either A)buy a ten day pass, w/the no expiration option or not, or B)buy an extra one day pass w/no options available. They told me I could not add the park hopper option to a one day pass.....who is this helping. The difference of the money is 998 for the 7 day pass w/options or 1097 for the 10 day pass w/out the expiration option. It is really ridiculous. If I was aware of this, I wouldv'e bought the UPH before today. It was not clear enough to me. We already have booked our airfaire and I cannot change it to make a shorter stay...I also have an PAP and hope now that good rates come out, so that my decision is made for me. It expires about 20 days before our vacation, so hopefully rates come out, and then I just have to worry about what to do for 3 people instead of four...

Not a better plan for me.... :guilty:

By the way, on www.alearsnet.com I saw on the front page that one of the discount ticket brokers still has old hopper passes available, while they last. Maybe you should check it out.

Hotwire still has Park Hopper Plus tickets available for adults and children.

They told me I could not add the park hopper option to a one day pass Call back - you can add hopping to a 1 day pass. all ears shows it as costing $94.75.

I might be crazy here, but maybe spend the extra day at Sea World or Universal? Just thinkin out of the box a bit! :cool1:

Unless I'm confused, the difference in the 7 day and 10 day passes is $10 (if you don't buy the "no expire option) and it's more than $100 less than the old 7 day park hoppers or UPH's.

So why are you upset again? I've got the same length of vacation scheduled for June/July and I'm THRILLED at the money I'm going to save.

It's true that the difference between a 7 day pass & a 10 day pass is about $10. Add ons like hopping and plusses are a flat rate (the same for any length ticket). Maybe I'm not understanding the info correctly.

The difference in your quote is $100, right? For 4 people? Is there something else that could be making it be so much of a difference?

We would probably plan a non park day.

we like to have the option of going to any park on our last day. Not being tied down to one, or having to stay at the pool...or go outside the park to somewhere else. The difference is about $100, ($998/7 days vs. 1097/10 days). I will end up buying the 10 day ticket for the four of us and it saves us money compared to last year buying 3 UPH, but there shouldn't be a cut off..it should have a 7,8,9 day etc...ticket.

Thanks for the tip about the parkhopper option, finally able to get through online and found that out myself.

I was wondering why they stoped at 7 and went to 10 as well. I am also curious about the who package thing, but that is a different story.

Which tickets did they quote you on? Just curious because the info on Mousesavers doesn't seem to match up. Of course, I would expect the disney website to have the correct ticket prices. I'm just not sure about a live person, LOL!

Does the $998 figure include tax? From the disney website, when you add the tax, you end up with $1063 for the 7 day with premium. That's the same as mousesavers. Since you can't price a 10 day ticket online (well, I couldn't), the only figure I have is $1097 including tax from mousesavers. That's only a $34 difference for all 4 tickets.

we are also planning for Apr 22-30, arriving late on the 22nd so we also have 8 days to play with. I have also been bouncing around whether to do a 7 day or 10 day pass ($27 difference when plugging in the numbers). I am probably leaning toward a 7 day to leave 1 down day for a water park or something. My guess is that DIsney's marketing department determined that most people who stay 8 or 9 days still only go to the park for 7 leaving the rest for plusses and what not.

the problem with the 7 day pass is that on the 8th day you have to pay either a 1 day ticket or for the entry into the water park...

I got online, if you go to tickets only and punch in how many days you want, only listed is 7, click 7 then on the next page the 10 ticket is listed. Priced b4 tax, I pretended to buy one to get the price with tax...$1097 w park hopper/and extras. I am leaning towards doing this. UNLESS AP rates come out for that time frame. I have a PAP and hoping good rates come out....

You can use your plus options on a day that you don't use a theme park day. So you could get a 7 day pass with the plus option, and you'd be able to go to the theme parks for 7 days, plus go to the water parks on other days.

The information you were given is not correct. With MYW tickets, this is the 1st time that One Day Hoppers have ever been available for sale, granted you pay an extra $30 or so dollars for them, but it is possible!

I don't think I'm understanding exactly what it is that you need. If you already have a PAP, what do you need MYW tickets for? What, exactly, do you already have? And what, exactly, is it that you want?

MagicKingdom05

I think that the OP only has the one PAP, and needs tickets for the rest of the people to get in.

I thought that might be the case. But with mention of 7 day tickets, 1 day tickets, and 10 day tickets I'm confused. I don't see what the problem could be. If a 7 day ticket isn't enough, then why not buy a 10 day? It's only about $10 more per ticket. Why even think of buying a one day ticket?

MagicKingdom05

I agree. Buy the 10 day ticket and just let the unused days expire. There is only a $11 difference between the 7 and 10 day anyways.

Well to be fair, they did say that the new MYW passes would come into effect on January 2. Why would the old passes in the old way still be available when they told us a long way in advance that they would not be?

Why even think of buying a one day ticket?The OP's quote had a $100 difference between the 7 day and the 10 day for 4 people.

And I think the PAP expires before their trip but could perhaps be renewed for this trip if the price (room discount) is right! :)

From the website I get for 2 adults 2 kids:
7 day with hopping & plus: 1062.63 (998 + 64.96 tax)
10 day with hopping & plus: 1097.02 (1030 + 67.02 tax)

Difference: $34.39

It looks like the $998 quote was without tax.

Hope that helps you decide!!

Thank you, that does.

I did call the AP line last night, got a really nice CM on the phone. He believed there will be AP discounts for the end of April "SOON". I may just hold off buying tickets all together until a month from now, see if rates become available. If not, just change hotels, or try to save enough for rack rate at the GF. My parents are joining us this year and want to stay at the GF, just once. Hopefully then I will renew my pass, and by my DH, and two DD's myw 10 passes.

Thank you for your patience...and help.

the problem with the 7 day pass is that on the 8th day you have to pay either a 1 day ticket or for the entry into the water park...

A 7 day ticket with plus options gives you 11 admissions, 7 of which are park hopper days and 4 are plusses for waterparks, pleasure island and Disney Quest. If you don't take the no expire option, you have 14 days to use these 11 admissions. You shouldn't have to buy a new ticket for day 8, unless I am misunderstanding your plans.

Kungaloosh!

With the new MYW passes you get 5 plus options. (More time for us to spend at Disney Quest! :cool1: )

For our April trip we really need 8 day tickets. We like to go to a major park each day of our trip. If we do a water park or DisneyQuest in the morning, we'll go to one of the major parks in the evening.

When I called AAA this morning, I was told that I could upgrade the number of days on our MYW passes when I check in. There's no other way to purchase the 10 MYW passes with a package.

Wow, DisneyJunkie,
you must have a lot of stamina!
I'd be exhausted if we didn't take a rest day out of 8 days.,

Kungaloosh!

we go full speed ahead, as well. Take breaks for about 3 hours in the afternoon at the pool, then wash up get dinner and head back to one of the parks till bedtime...or the girls get cranky whichever comes first...LOL

I cannot wait, almost time for my 90 day ressies.

It seems that if you don't want dining, there's no reason to buy a package anyway. The price is the same as room only, the cancellation policy is worse, and anyone can get the same price on tickets without a package.

I just don't get it! If you don't want the dining, why would you want this package? Maybe the airport transportation?

jcemom

I don't see any reason to buy a package if you're not interested in the dining option. As far as I know, if you mean the new free transportation Disney is offering in May, that is available to anyone with or without a package.
