yay! i have been paying cash for tickets since re-opening. My AP expired during shut down and I took payout of what was left on it since it had been paid in full. i just went for the 4th time since reopening and figured it was time i went to guest services to try and get new AP. I called from resort but they said I'd have to start the application and it can take up to 30 days. Because I needed it within this current trip to apply the ticket I bought, the CM suggested I visit an actual location to get it all done same day. I had planned to do before my last day of trip for discounts and such but kept forgetting my gift card in the room I was using to pay for it. Finally remembered on my Hollywood studios day and went to guest services there. It was taking so long I thought at first the CM was doing something she wasn't supposed to and I wasn't eligible but she finally confirmed I could upgrade and kept apologizing it was taking so long. A couple of managers later they figured it out and I got a new AP! Yay! And they asked me what I wanted to ride and gave me a fastpass for the inconvenience.
