As I mentioned previously, I had the regular 7 day and 5 day WDW flex tickets, not the Canadian discount ones currently available from AM. The CM removed the discount that WDW gives Air Miles when they sold them the tickets.
So basically we have to ask them to price bridge like we used to do. Good info to know, but it will depend on the CM you get. Does anyone know if using the ticket at the gate once will lock in the "gate price" like the old tickets used to do? Then you could take the ticket to upgrade and have the Disney price come up?

From what it looks like, it didn't price bridge to the current gate price. Just to the gate price at the time the tickets were purchased (i.e. The 2018 prices). But $521 is soooo much better than previous reports of only getting them valued at $469!

    Sorry, that's actually what I was talking about - not price bridging to the current ticket price, but to the purchase date price.

    I just wanted to mention something I learned on another thread that worked for me for Universal tickets. Twice I have "bought" 2 day 2 park (park to park) tickets from AM and when I arrived I went to guest services to let them know that I only needed a 1 day P-P ticket. Both times, they exchanged my ticket to a 1 day P to P ticket and gave me the difference on a UO gift card (value of between $104 to $113 USD). When I did this AM was only offering 2 day park to park ticket so there wasn't an option of buying a 1 day instead but it is a good way to turn dream miles into cash or if you don't have enough points for 2 people's ticket you can get 1 and half. Anyway just an FYI.

    I got my personal shopper quote for my Universal preferred 3 Park AP - 7575 AM - which seems to work out to 15AM / $1US. I think this is a bit higher than we've been seeing lately for PS quotes....now to decide if I pull the trigger - the savings with the AP will definitely be worth it, I think!
