Are you planning on coming back next year during free dining? If so, then you might be better off booking a bounceback, and forgetting about your current tix since you will need to purchase new tix with the FD.

Maybe do the math to see which will be a bigger discount, FD or upgrading to a NE ticket, and paying for meals OOP?

Am I understanding this correct as what you are trying to do?
What I was trying to do, was the whole price bridge with our base and upgrade it to what we've already purchased(which is a 5 day) to a NE or AP. Trying to see if it was more economical than having to buy a new ticket next year since we will try to stay on a % discount vs free dining.

We our planning on staying deluxe next year, so the % discount code would be better for us than the FD. The bounceback in our room is only for august/September as well.

How many days will you be staying next year? Sounds like an upgrade to a 10day NE would work well for you, esp if you add the water park option, which turns a 10 day ticket into a 16 day ticket when you factor in the 6 days of water parks.

I still have water park days left on a NE ticket from 2005! Use them a day here, a day there, and it works great!

If you can come back a week earlier next year, an annual pass would be a good option too! Esp if you use the AP discount on your deluxe room, and if you come back for more than 5 days!

Actually it turns a 10-day ticket into a 20-day ticket, since you get 10 entries to water parks, etc., with the WPF&M option on a 10-day ticket.
