Ticket Upgrade Question

I have read the ticket "Sticky" and still have one question. I will be upgrading a ticket I purchased through UT to an annual pass during my next visit to the world. I know I need to activate before upgrading. However, do I need to upgrade on the first day of use or can I do it on the last day I have and still get the full value of the current gate price? By waiting, I was hoping to get a later start date on my AP, or would the date of the AP be from the first day I used the ticket?

Date of AP would be from first day you used the ticket, so no advantage to waiting until your last day.

Thanks for the quick reply. That's what I thought. Oh well wishful thinking on my part!

exactly but 2 things to add.

If the first day you use your ticket is say 10/15/13 (random date) and then you convert it to an AP - you can use it thru 10/15/14 in other words it feels like you get an extra day.

Also we always convert to APs on the first day so we get all of the AP benefits (discounts in shops, discount at Earl of Sandwich etc).

I would upgrade it the first day (after you used it to enter the park so you get the full gate value for it). Then if you lose it, they can look up your AP and make another one. If you lose the UT ticket, it will be a lot harder to replace.
