UPGRADING 7 day base ticket with water park

How much would it cost to up grade 7day base tickets with the water park option. I bought the 4/3 deal. 3 Adults and 1 child. To non expire tickets. We have 7 days in the parks and 7 extra with water park and disney quest. When we do the water park days we go to down town disney and dont go to the parks that day. We plan on going 2 days to the water parks, but wondering if we go 3 times if we should upgrade and save the extra park days for another trip. would it be worth it? Thank Lisa

First, you have 7 water park + more entries - I couldn't tell from your post if you understood that part at all. (never mind - I see you said 7 entries - the 2 visits vs. 3 visits at the end confused me! not sure what that part had to do with it, but it's irrelevant to the answer!)

To add non-expiration to a 7 day ticket is $117

The price for a water park ticket for one day is $48 adult, $43 child.

I guess it depends on how many more of those plus options you will use in the future as to what it's worth to you.

Edited: If you can still upgrade your tickets in your package before you leave, you *should* be able to add NE for all 7 days for the price of a 4 day - which is only $53. People were doing this a lot earlier in the year on the 4/3, but I haven't seen much about it recently. But if you can do it for $53, that might make the decision a lot easier.

(I'm having serious editing problems with the DIS today so if I post anything 2x please forgive me)!

I don't mean to hijack but I read the sticky post and couldn't figure it out on my own.

I have a 8 day basic park ticket without hopping. Im looking to add hopping and water park option as we will be going to a water park at least once. Is the price $50 total of $50 each (50 for hopping, 50 for WP's)? Thanks for the answers in advance.

Flat $50 for each, regardless of the length of ticket you have.

So it would be 53.00 to up grade I was thinking if we do a waterpark for 3 days and not do a main park those days we could use the the unused park days for another trip and also have 2 or 3 water park options left also. Would that be right?

You may also want to look into adding 3 more days to the tickets when you do the upgrade. It would be about $12/ticket for the 3 days, since each day after 7 is only about $3 + tax. Then do your upgrade to Non-expire, which is more expensive than doing NE on a 7 day, but you will then have 3 more park days & 3 more extras to use at a later date. It depends how much money you want to put out at this point.

Use your tickets at least once before doing any upgrade so you get the gate price for the original ticket instead of the price you paid for it.

Here's how I see it:

You have 7 water park entries and you're saying use 3 - you will have 4 left.
You have 7 theme park entries and you're saying use 4, I guess - you will have 3 left.

Basically, that would cover you for another 7 day trip in which you did 3 park days and 4 water park days.

It's really all in what you want to do.

No.
It's $53 to upgrade a base ticket to a park hopper.
It's $53 to upgrade a base ticket or park hopper to WP&M.
It's $117 to upgrade a 7 day ticket to non-expiring. If you want to use the tickets on another trip, you need to add the non-expiring, even if you already have the WP&M option.

While that is all correct - it's only $53 for the OP to upgrade to non-expire for her 4/3 tickets, if she is able to do it on her package now before going to WDW. (See my edited post from yesterday that stated this)
