I've looked at the Premier AP, but it's not cost effective for my two trips. We stay on DVC points, so room discounts don't help. I think I'm going to just go with a 5-day ticket at DLR and a 10-day (maybe less) non-expiring ticket for WDW which we'll use over 2-3 trips over the next couple years. I don't think I'll get more than a few days within the same 12-month period though, so APs probably won't work.

I don't even know what to say... what they did to you was absolutely terrible. I have successfully used 10-day park hoppers from WDW at DL at least 6 times in the past 5 years. I have only done it at CA once, the rest at DL and never a problem. It just sometimes takes 10+ minutes for them to run it and come back with the 1 day paper ticket. One time, they were nice enough to bring me a printout of all my activity on the pass without me asking, she did that to let me know there was only one day left on the ten-day pass.

I came to this forum to see about using a brand new 10 day pass that I have not yet used at WDW. I guess the consensus is that you cannot use it the very first time at DL. I have a very old "Park Hopper Plus" pass I will use instead, even though I think it means I lose the "Plus" part which used to be good for an admission to Pleasure Island (RIP) or one of the waterparks on the same day it is used.

My friend was actually heading to DL today and going to attempt to use her NE tickets from WDW. I hope it worked for her!

I really hope maybe at some point a better system could be worked out or something. We always have NE tickets and for me it is the best option $ wise, especially because then we don't have to decide before hand how many park days we want. I am not sure if I would try it again or not, although next time I would be sure to ask for someone else at the gate itself if the same thing happened.

Just wanted to let everyone know that we were able to exchange the unexpired one day we had left on a WDW PH for a DL PH with no problem. When I asked the CM at the gate he responded with "of course...we make magic happen! The manger/supervisor came out maybe 10 minutes later, and took our passes. He then came back with the DL PH..they're marked as "replacement" passes. This really worked well for us. Thanks to everyone who gave us input on how to do this. We had a great time at WDW and both parks at DL.

If the ticket you are talking about is the WDW annual pass you get for free when you get married at WDW it has no dollar value. It cannot be used towards the purchase of another ticket or upgraded to a premium passport. When a cast member scans it they will see a 'zero' dollar value rather than the dollar value of the same pass if you had purchased it at a ticket booth.

I've used an unused day on my WDW parkhopper at DL with no problem. I would try to avoid this as much as I can though. The process took about 10 minutes which, at opening on a busy day, is a BIG disadvantage for park touring.

Just to add to the poster who had a bad experience using WDW passes at DL.

One time it was just DH using his WDW pass at DL. When DL called WDW to take the day off his pass, the WDW computers were down or something. So the DL CMs just let him in, and his WDW pass was NOT charged! Now THAT is the type of customer service you would expect. He was surprised they did this, but after all it was not HIS fault, etc.

Upgrade WDW tickets at Disneyland

We live in southern CA and are going to WDW next year so I was thinking of getting one day longer than we will be at WDW and then when we get back to CA upgrade it to the california annual pass at disneyland, is this possible?

I would have never thought of this! We have a couple of days left on WDW PH from years ago. Going for a surprise trip. Is there any way to verify this will work? Hate to ruin the trip to save a few hundred dollars. An tickets be purchased at the gate and are they more?

If the WDW PH is a non expiring type you will still be able to use them at DLR.

If you need more tickets that left on your PH, it is cheaper to buy them at Disneyland.com if it's a 3 day ticket or longer.

I am assuming the annual pass you all referred to from WDW is the Premier Passport, not the regular Premium annual pass that includes the water parks & more option?

Smile Success!

I purchased a 10 day pass for Disneyworld as I will be going there in a month. However, we had a Disneyland trip planned as well. I successfully used my DW pass at DL before ever going to DW. I saw there was some confusion on this point on this thread, so thought I would share my experiences.

Wow, we are currently planning a trip to DL and had no idea this might be an option. I know DW, DS7, and I all have some days left on WDW PH NE tickets. We've been wondering how we will use these, as the past several years, we've either had APs or have had to purchase tickets while receiving Free Dining.

There is the other side of this, all 4 of us have at least 1 day on a WDW room key from one of these Free Dining trips (the other times we upgraded to APs). But I'm guessing these are just 1 day, 1 park tickets, instead of PHs.

Has anyone actually tried using unused non-activated WDW tickets?
