I bought these Canadian Resident tickets; 1 day per park. If I wanted to upgrade to park hoppers could I? And if so can I do that over the phone or only at Guest Services in person?
When is your trip and did you just buy tickets or as part of a package? A package you should be able to do online before the discount expires (Feb 7, 2020).
If you want to upgrade them, and maintain the discount, you need to do so while the discount is offered. So if your trip is before Feb 7, 2020, you can do it at the guest services. If not, make sure you call to do so before Feb 7, 2020 (you should be able to over the phone, but I'm not aware of anyone trying as of yet).
I have the same basic question as Juventus and wondering which of these 2 completely opposite responses is the correct one????If you have any plans of actually using the hopper option you should 100% buy that NOW! I'll show you the math that will be used. Since these tickets are not available on site you'd be needing to go before the end of the promo and then crossing your fingers that you find someone who is willing to upgrade your ticket to the CDN rate and not the current gate price.
I'm using the cost of an adult ticket for 7 days with a start date of January 21st (just went to the cheapest date!)
If you upgrade your ticket now (over the phone is your only option at this point BTW and ONLY if you bought direct from Disney)
CDN base ticket :$366.50
CDN hopper ticket: $434.66
Difference of $68.16
IF you wait till you arrive you could very well be subjected to the following math:
The value of your current CDN ticket:$366.50 (this will ALWAYS be the value assigned to this ticket, no question how much was paid)
Current gate price of hopper ticket:$544.18 (this could change if there is any price increase before you go as well)
Difference of $177.68
Very long way of saying, you will more than likely lose any realized discount if you wait till you arrive to upgrade those tickets.
I will be buying four adult - 7 day Park Hopper tickets on the Canadian Discount and using them in early January - when they are still on sale.
If I want to add the "Hopper Plus" option to the tickets while I am there how will the upgrade be calculated???
Pricing them out now they are as follows:
7 Day Hoppers - $1860
7 Day Hopper Plus - $1928
So the cost to add the water parks on 4 tickets is a TOTAL of $68
