We decided to take a taxi to the front of the park as we did not want to waste time trying to go through the IG and chance being turned away. The taxi fare from the Boardwalk to the front entrance was around $10 plus tip.

We picked up at dq, perhaps that was why it was so slow! Glad others had better luck!

If anyone is registered for the 2/13 wildlife class at AK, just a heads up it may be cancelled. I called today to have my kids switched into it and the operator told me there were only5 kids registered right now and she was going to cancel if there weren't more students registered. She talked me out of it because she also stated that our YES park tickets would also be refunded if the class was cancelled and we would have to purchase regular tickets. I didn't argue with her about the refund because I didn't have the info in front of me.posted my whole conversation on a separate thread on the theme park board before realizing I should have posted here.

We did that class in October. I doubt they will let you through since the class starts before the park opens. You will have to meet the YES leaders and others at the front of the park.

wow we are in the class at MK on the 12th I hope they don't cancel it. We are all looking forward to it. It still shows open online while some other classes that week are now full.

It didn't really surprise me that she said she was probably going to cancel the class. It was that she said that we would lose our park tickets. Now I know in the past if a class was cancelled, families were allowed to keep their tickets, but she insisted we would be refunded our YES ticket cost and would have to purchase tickets on our own. I dont think she was trying to talk me out of switching classes because it was more work for her either, as I would have had to do with another department anyway.

It sounds like she just didn't know what she was talking about. That isn't uncommon, unfortunately.

Does anyone know if you can have your yes tickets moved onto your key to the kingdom card? Or must they remain separate?

As I understand it, no. Only tickets that can be handled at the resort, which is pretty much just MYW tickets, can be added to a KTTW card.

No. You have never been able to add Y.E.S tickets to your KTTW card. Also there has been some new reports that they are not allowing anyone who bought tickets from other venues (like UT) to do so either. Several people have been saying that CMs are saying they can not do it unless tickets are actually bought at Disney.

That's new info, but it's actually no different doing UT tickets than tickets purchased from Disney.

Things will be changing soon anyways with the MagicBands - they will presumably have to allow ANY ticket type on the MagicBands for anyone staying at a resort, we just don't know how yet. So why they'd change the policy on third party tickets now and then have to deal with it later I don't know.

I have no idea. Esp. sense UT is an authorized seller of the tickets. But if you search it on the boards lots of people have been running into this problem. I am not sure what they plan to do?! Are they going to make people buy tickets from Disney directly to get the bands? Or is there a fee for adding tickets to the band if you don't by them direct?! I have no idea. It sounds a little crazy but that is what is being reported. Everything seems to be changing!
