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).
Thank you

OK, hopefully I won't bother anyone here with any more questions AFTER this one:

I know that I have to show proof of AP with the resort within 24 hours of check in, but since I am ordering my AP's online to pick up at Will Call, will the receipt be sufficient for the resort?

We may not be going to any park on the day of arrival, which means that I would have to get the "actual AP's" the next morning and make sure that I am back at resort around 3:00 to make my 24 hour window, unless the receipt works.

Ordering online you should receive a voucher. In the past they a have been a plastic card (credit card size) that is lime green and says it is an exchange voucher. I was able to show that and it sufficed. Also once you receive this voucher you will have access to the passholder site.

Currently that is not the case since the upgrade to My Disney Experience.

I just ordered two annual passes two weeks ago online.
I am a Florida resident but I don't think that makes any difference in how it's handled.

I received an email receipt from Disney confirming my order as accepted, and a link in the email to print out two paper vouchers that they call "eCertificates" that I will bring to Disney World to redeem and get my annual passes. I won't be getting any plastic card vouchers as someone mentioned above but maybe they still issue those to people who order via telephone?

If you aren't going to any park on the day you arrive, you may be able to just show your voucher/eCertificate to the resort as proof of passholder status. If not, you can take a bus or drive over to Downtown Disney and exchange your vouchers for passes at guest relations and go back to your resort afterwards.

The resort (if they ask for your AP, it's hit or miss on that sometimes) shouldn't accept your voucher/receipt because you have to show an ACTIVE AP to get the discount. If not, you could just keep the voucher for years and keep showing it.

I'm sorry to ask someone to do this, but I'm not able to access the AP site at this time. Is there any availability for WL CL 8/14 and 8/15? We're staying until the 23rd but I don't believe those rates are out yet. Also, is there a "book by" deadline for those early August dates? TIA

I have reservations using the summer discount for POR-R July 3-July 13. I checked and the AP rate is cheaper. Is it too late to change the reservation? Just call?

Yes, just call. I've often changed when cheaper rates come out. There is a possibility that there won't be any availability at your resort, but I'm guessing Riverside is a pretty safe bet. Good luck!
