I asked ABD by email and they said that we get a 4 day hopper pass on Day 3. But then they said we might not want to use it the day we arrive in DL so we can use in on the last day after breakfast.

That doesn't make sense to me... if we get it on Day 3, and it's a 4 day pass.. then Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, Day 6... that's 4 days... so it should be fine, right??

Am I missing something?
No, they're wrong, unless something's changed since last year. You get a four-day hopper: The first day you use to go to DL for ADB's evening activities (Day 3 of the tour); the second day you go on the DL part of the tour (Day 4 of the tour); the third day you go on the DCA part of your tour (Day 5 of the tour); the fourth day you can use it after breakfast (Day 6 of the tour). Unless they're giving you 3-day hoppers, you're fine.

To anyone who is doing the Adults Only trip in October 2014..

Would you be interested in a facebook group for just us? I use facebook more than this site and might be another way to communicate.

I'm happy to set it up if there is interest. Send me a PM with your info if you want in

Christine

I just sent you a PM. I am rarely on Facebook, but it's a great idea!

Forgive me if this is a "dumb" question... but I may as well ask.

I am going on the Feb DIS exclusive BSM. I plan to arrive in time to get two full days in the parks.

I work at a firm that has a significant business relationship w Disney and, as a result, we get 20% off tickets to both Disney World and Disneyland. Unfortunately, we can only buy certain ticket types - for example at DL we can only get 1day1park or 3dayHoppers.

I know at Disney World our tickets are fully upgradable and I can get 100 cents of the value of the ticket even though I only paid 80 cents... if I were to extend the ticket beyond the days originally alloted for.

Does anyone know if the same math applies to DL?

I can purchase a 1day1Park ticket for $73.60. But ideally would want a 2 day hopper. So can I buy the ticket for $73.60 and upgrade to a two day hopper for an additional $118 ($210-$92)?

Alternatively, I may just but 2 1day1park tickets for $147.20 ($73.60*2) and save $ for souveniers.

Also a dumb question, ABD itself doesnt offer discounted tickets for folks coming early do they?


That said (and a separate / second question for those w BSM experience), should I alter my touring of the parks in advance of BSM in light of the what we will experience on the tour. Not withstanding ABD, this will be our 3rd trip to DL - so its not totally a new experience for us.

Never a dumb question! Since the first question is really more of a general Disneyland policy question (rather than an ABD specific question) you may have better luck getting an answer on the Disneyland Forum:

http://www.disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?f=26

And for the discounted tickets from ABD question, I'd suggest you check with Kevin. He knows all the ins and outs of what ABD does & doesn't offer for these trips.

I did also post on the DL thread. Seems like there is no bridging of park tickets at DL like there is at wdw (so they only give u credit for what you paid for the ticket, not what it's worth). In that case, it's only worth buying a discounted ticket if u are going to use it as issued.

Will wait for Kevin to get back and ask if ABD has special pricing for tickets

Shhhhh it's a secret....

Howdy from the frozen land called Texas! I am taking my DS13 on a surprise trip for his 14th birthday. We will be on the July 13th, 2014 trip. So far I have been good at keeping it secret. His birthday is 7/12. We are getting up and heading to the airport. He will not know until we get there what we are doing. I have kept it quiet since October. I only have 5 months to go..... Wish me luck!

Best of luck! That's a long time to keep a surprise, but I have faith you'll make it!

I've added you to the Roll Call on the first post.
