Mine were getting cut off too so this is what I did. Just put the codes one right after the other--no spaces. It worked!!

AP Experts!

Hello AP Experts! I have some AP questions if you have time to answer! I'm leaving this Sunday for a last minute trip with my aunt, DH & I are hoping to go in the fall, & extended family is talking about going in the spring, so I think I want to get an AP!!! So excited about this idea! So here's the questions:

I heard that I could take my 4 day non park hopper tickets that I got with the package & upgrade to AP & pay the difference, correct?

Any have an idea what the cost difference will be?

I also heard that I should redeem at least 1 day of the ticket for admission because using 1 ticket increases the value? Is this true? I find this strange.

Thanks for any advice you have!

This is the ticket sticky that explains upgrades etc. Post #7 specifically talks about upgrading to APs.

A current AP is about $606 (tax incl). Take the cost of your 4 day ticket and subtract it from that to get the difference.

As for using it to "increase" the value, that only holds true if you bought a discounted ticket from a broker, AAA etc OR if the ticket prices go up between the time you bought it and the time you upgrade it. Using it "locks" it in at current gate price. Since Universal just raised their ticket prices earlier this week, I suspect that WDW will raise theirs this weekend or next (including the cost of APs).

Help with pricing

Hi all!

I'm not able to register my new AP. We're considering a quick trip in June. Is anyone willing to help me price out a June 16 check in, check out June 21. I'm interested in whatever is out there...we have a preference for Port Orleans, but are willing to change it up. We are 2 adults and 2 kids (4 months, 2 years).

Thanks to anyone willing to help us out!

Ok, now I have a question. We bought our tickets as part of a package (10 day park hoppers) and we want to upgrade to APs when we get there. Ticket prices will most certainly increase (including APs before we get there). I was going to go to DTD to upgrade the night before we actually start our vacation (we are arriving 7/31 and staying off property one night. Our package starts 8/1) and get our APs and our TiW card. With the change in ticket price, should I go to DTD as planned, or wait and upgrade at the park the next day? I'm so confused. Or will it matter at all???

Wait for the price increase to happen and then price out difference between using them once to lock in gate price or just upgrading them upon arrival using the price you paid for them. The price increase won't be a flat across the board so I can't predict what will be cheaper for you. (Last year's APs went up $50 IIRC, which was a BIG increase compared to past years).

Thank you so much. I HATE this. I wish there would be a simple way to do all this. I'm not good at wheeling and dealing. I guess I better get used to it though so I don't get charged more than I'm supposed to. Thanks again for your help.

Hi all! My DH and I just purchased APs last week. I went to the website and it says for new or converted APs the site is "unable to add your passholder affiliation at this time." Is there any info out there about why this is, or when this will change? After I am able to add my info will I receive email alerts for discounts etc?

Thanks!

Thinking about ordering my AP's now just in case the price does increase, but wondered about using Will Call?

Good idea?

Also, when do the AP's begin - when I purchase them? or when I first use them?

When you use them. I would order them ASAP because I suspect ticket prices will go up later this week to match the Universal price increase.
