    If you have a package, they cancel it. Guest services can transfer the money to the AP reservation (which will be room only) and refund the difference. When you get your refund, buy your APs:goodvibes

    I have a room only with the discounted tickets added in, no dining plan though.
    I looked at undercover tourist and didn't see a price for AP's there. :)

    If you call and tell them what you're trying to do..they can do it..If the CM can't ...call back. They don't always know to switc the monies over. So worst case you'll have to give a deposit and wait for a refund..Since it is more than 45 days out they could also give you a courtesy hold! ;)

    When I buy from UT I just pick the tickets with the best discount that cost less than an AP (it was 6day PH last time, but something else the time before). Then do the upgrade to APs onsite after using them at least once. :thumbsup2

    Don't forget, if you are doing TS that you can buy TIW for $75 with an AP. It get's you 20% off TS food and alcohol! :goodvibes

    Thanks I don't know what I was thinking .... I know to buy the park hopper and then upgrade! FYI when I purchased my TIW in Jan it was $100.

    Jen: Very exciting! Check out Cheshire's FAQ about annual passes... including this post about upgrading to APs from an Undercover Tourist ticket -- it's exactly like I_Heart describes. (I *almost* did it last year but went for the No Expire since we go for really short trips.)

    Now, where's that popcorn smiley?

    It's not changing, just saving money! I did a quick check on the Mousesavers link and it looks like 5day PH might be your best bet now. It's only about $100 savings overall, but that get's you your TIW "free" :thumbsup2

    Who doesn't like to save money? :dance3:

    :thumbsup2

    Oh no! I have to buy another for my next trip. Guess it's better to find out now that the price went up. :goodvibes

    Good info Miss! :thumbsup2

    Jenny - I was really nervous the first time I did it, but it went just like described. The second time was a breeze too. At the IG at Epcot there is never a line at Guest Services and they handled everything smoothly and easily! :goodvibes

    Ladies, before I mosey on over to our Kookalicious' CR thread, I thought I'd ask here first... because you all ARE the experts after all.

    I'm in a conundrum. (Though, not nearly as exciting as Jen's!) So, I finally got the site to spit out some pricing last night for the maybe-sorta-possible End of Oct. (Funnily enough, it was the OLD website! :thumbsup2 Imagine that. Did they revert?) Hubbo's Birthday "Surprise". I was looking at CR Garden Wing. It came back with a standard Garden Wing Room and a Deluxe. The Deluxe room wasn't that much more... do any of you happen to know if the Deluxe rooms ever get discounted? In particular, I'm hoping they run the room-only discount they did last year -- 'cause I refuse to pay rack-rate. :rolleyes: Just not sure that if I do happen to book and put a deposit down and those rooms aren't discounted, will I be kicking myself for not having booked a regular GW room or ... over at the YC&BC. :crazy2: I bet that doesn't make any sense. :upsidedow :scratchin

    Pas: Oooooh, I've LOVE to see a pic of HRH playing the violin! :cheer2:

    A room with tickets would be a package. You would need to cancel and rebook a room only or change to a ticketless package, but you would have to add dining to it. I would buy the most heavily discounted tickets from UT. We bought the non-expiration tickets. It saved me 500.00 on the AP's.

    I have done every kind of change and money transfer possible. Ask away.

    The Ap's may not save you a lot with only 2 trips, but if you have any plans to return in May of 2014 it would be a very good deal for you.

    You are all AMAZING!!! But I must admit I am getting confused. So...call CRO, cancel current package, they refund to my CC. Then rebook with them the room only AP rate. Will they ask me what my AP number is or anything??

    And I am then left with the difference on my CC as a credit. About ($1400.) Use this money to order 5day PH from UNdercover tourist, then on our day of arrival walk into Epcot International Gateway, head to Guest Services, and upgrade to Annual Passes??? THen also at that time I can buy TIW card if I want?

    Then go back to present the AP to Beach CLub people as proof we have it? THey will let us check in without it?

    Phew.....thanks for all the help ladies

    This is what I can gather (from all of the RC advice)...

    1. Rebook your room & tickets package to room-only using the AP rate.
    2. Buy the Undercover Tourist tickets closest in price (but not over) the price of the AP.
    3. Crucial Step: When you go to your first park, go through the turnstile with the existing tickets (this will lock in the "Gate Price" of the ticket, not the discounted UT price), then go to Guest Services and upgrade all of the tickets to APs. You'll have to pay the difference in gate price of the old tickets to the cost of the APs -- this is why you need to use them first before upgrading.
    4. Show your AP at the front desk so you'll feel better about having booked the rate. :hug: (They really don't ask for it, Pas?!)

    That sound about right, ladies?
