    We were wondering with the exchange rate uk to us being good if it was worth buying tickets before we go or should we just buy them at the front desk to save time?

    We tend to wait but that's because we get Annual Passes and it just seems easier to get them over there

    If you buy from a US ticket place you'll still get the benefit of the exchange rate and can be all sorted out before you go!

    We always buy before we go....from OTD.
    Keith, with an AP.....if I bought ours now, am I correct in thinking that you are sent a voucher in the post and you swap this for the AP's on your first visit to a park or GR. So.....the pass doesn't actually start until you enter a park. :confused:

    To be honest, we've only ever bought our APs over there so I dont know for SURE but that's the way I think it works yep! you get a voucher, swap it at Guest Relations outside the first park you go to and it goes from that day

    If you buy an AP now and get it in the post it will not be activated until you use it the first time but if you want to renew it it has to be renewed by the anniversary of the first date you activated it.

    Also if you purchase the tickets in advance they do cost less than buying them at the gate (these are the MYW not the APs)

    From the UK definately buy before you go you even save on regular MYW tix let alone the ultimate tix which aren't available over there.

    AP - for my first one I pre ordered it and got a lime green voucher in the post but I needed it back then to book a DDE card. Now i just buy one at the gate it's just as easy tbh and you don't part with your money until the last minute. My current AP is dated from the day i bought it but the previous exchange voucher activated from date of exchange so I suppose technically it's the date you exchange rather than go through the park gate iykwim suppose generally the two go hand in hand?
