Well you can't use DL tickets to enter WDW, so I'm pretty sure that would be a no.

true but...

mandjblum your post got me thinking as we had hoped to be able to use points to visit the west coast & DL next summer. Have you inquired if you could
purchase the DVC princed PAP voucher via MS ($399+), then upgrade it @ DL in October to the combo Disneyland Preimer Passport ($899+) that grants entrance to both DL & WDW? The key would be whether you'd receive the $399+ value or the $699+ towards the trade-in.

Wonder if after purchasing it you can upgrade the DVC priced PAP to this ticket at Disneyland and, if so, what $ value you'd receive ($399 or $699)?
Small print says that these tix cannot be upgraded.

I think CF addressed this somewhere, because I remember seeing a post that it would cost $400 to upgrade to this. But I'm way too lazy to search for whatever post that was! But I may be mixing up what the original question was - it was somehow related to DL and upgrades!

Tickets at DL are treated as "straight line" as opposed to WDW tickets which are "front-loaded" for pricing. If you have a valid DL ticket, unused or partially used, you can take it to a Guest Relations Office. They can look it up to see how many days you have used of the ticket. They will then cancel your ticket and apply the unused portion to the purchase of a new MYW (or AP) ticket.

The following is an example with completely made up numbers, as I am not aware of the actual selling price. If you had a five day DL ticket that had cost $200 that is $40 per day. If you had used two days the remaining ticket value would be $120. You would have to purchase, at the very least, a two day base ticket (or a one day adult hopper) to use the $120 and your DL ticket would be canceled.

Additionally, DL tickets (other than APs) expire 13 days from date of first use.

But while at DL you can purchase (or upgrade to) a Disney Premier Pass which is a Premium AP at both DL and WDW.

1. Please note that this thread has been discussing the DVC Member Pass and not general public.

2. A 14 or 21 day Ultimate can be upgraded to an AP. If any of the "minor" park entries have been used you can only upgrade to a PAP.

$399. They look up what you PAID and that is all the credit you get

DARN. Well that's a bummer. Great for WDW-only visitors, though.

New question: Does the person who purchases the tickets have to be the one who activates a new pass with them?

In other words...

I have a DVC friend buy 2 PAPs at $399 ea and pay her for them

I become a new DVC member in early 2013

I use the vouchers she bought in 2012 to get myself a new pass for myself in 2013

Whomever gets the DVC AP must have an address that matches the member's address. You can't just buy the vouchers and hand them off to friends.

When exchanging vouchers for the DVC AP, you must show your DVC member card and ID. Everyone in the group must show picture ID proving they live with the DVC member. Only immediate family members living at the same address as the DVC member are eligible for DVC pricing.

I have a question about when I actually upgrade them. When I did this the last time, I took all the ids and went to Guest Services and did all 4 of the upgrades from a MYW ticket to a discounted dvc ap...they were not with me. Was I lucky because they should all be there or could they be off riding a ride?

Everyone is supposed to show ID, so I would guess you were lucky.

Thanks. I think DH was with me and both kids were minors then so maybe that is why. I will make sure that they are all there. I did have their ids though with me.

I believe you have to be a member when they are activated, they check ID's and member card at that time. They key the member # into the computer to verify. The last time I activated one they kept messing up the #.

Can we do this with passes for our children (10 & 5) too? What do I need to have for ID?

We are going in early Dec and were not thinking about going next year but this now has us thinking about a late summer trip if we can convert the kids hopper to PAP also.
