AP clarify question

Another question about AP. So I am getting a 4 day PH March 13-16. On the 16, I can pay the differance and buy an AP, correct?
Do I have to activate it that day?....my year will starts 3/16.
So It would expire 3/16/2014
I just got my kiddos school calendars and spring break is 3/10-14/2014 (so I was planning on going again, next spring break....so it would work (just cant go on 3/15, blocked Saturday, I assume)
We used to go to DL every 3 yrs...but I took my kids last spring break & will this spring break....and hopefully next spring break.(maybe if I get AP I will even go an extra time)
Thanks

pretty sure it has to be activated before your last day in order to get credit for it.

I think it just has to be upgraded before the ticket booth closes on your last day. In this case, 3/16 would be fine, as long as you upgrade on the 16th.

It will be back dated to the first day you use your PH. Not the day you upgrade.

^^^^^^

I just did this last month. I upgraded a five day PH to an AP on the 5th day and my AP expires one year from the day I first used the PH.

FWIW, you will not get any of the AP discounts on merchandise or food for all four days. Is this all to avoid a blockout day in 2014?

no~ blackout day in 2013...March 16th. I dont think I would use many discounts. We will stay off sight, dont eat much and dont really buy suveniors.

Am I doing this right?

Then it sounds like your plan is good one. If you can upgrade on the 16th which you should be able to do. Good luck!

Use your four day tickets starting on March 13. Upgrade to deluxe passes on March 16. Even though it's a blocked out day, you will be able to use your AP the rest of the day since it's the day you upgraded. APs are backdated to date of first use of pass, so your APs will expire on March 13, 2014. That does mean that your passes are valid on that date, so you could certainly visit again March 10-13, 2014. You will still save money over buying two separate sets of four-day tickets for the two trips. If you do buy any food or souvenirs as an AP holder, then those discounts are just icing on the cake.
