Buying an AP with the DVC discount - questions

Hello everyone!

For the first time, I'm considering an Annual Pass. We'll be at WDW for one day next month prior to a cruise. There's a 50/50 chance we'll be back in August for a week, and we have a four day weekend next January that we can come back to the World. By my count, we'd have 8 or 9 days (full or partial) to use the AP within a 365 day window. Seven days seems to be the break-even point, when I line up the DVC/AP vs the Park Hopper/No expiration options.

However, we won't know until about a week before we arrive if we'll be able to come back in August. Essentially, I can't order the AP tickets in advance.

I believe I can buy the AP's at a park gate, with my DVC card and photo ID in hand. Is that correct? If we go this route, I'll also be buying discounted AP's for my two sons, ages 14 and 11. Must they be present when I purchase them, or can I make that transaction by myself? Thanks in advance for any guidance here.

You can buy the AP's at any guest services office with your card and photo ID. Buying for your 2 sons is not an issue as long as they have the same name I believe. I never had an issue buying one for my Daughter. Have a nice Trip!

I have a 3-day PH with no expiration, and only used one day. If I upgrade to the DVC AP (I should be an owner in a couple of weeks - fingers crossed!), can I use the unused portion to defray the cost of the DVC AP, and if so, what kind of credit still remains on the ticket I have?

You wont be able to upgrade that ticket. Tickets are only upgradeable within 14 days of the first time you use them. If you want to get an ap, just hold on to your PH until sometime down the road. WE still have PH's from 5 years ago with days on them, but we've had ap's since then as it's always made the most sense for our travel plans. I'm sure we'll use them someday on a short trip.

OK, thanks. Since I'll be a DVC AP holder soon, I'll save my unused WDW passes and use them at DL when I go there.

If they are unused they you can use them toward a dvc ap.
