    I know some of you have done this . I have a 1 day base MYW tix for the FDDP , then I bought a 3 day hopper . Now before using these I can take them to guest services at Epcot on the 5th and redeem both tix toward an AP ? I'm thinking it will be a little under $200. extra , but my neighbor is asking me to take her to Super Soap Weekend . She's partially deaf, has real issues with her ears and walks with a limp . It's sad , she's a nice girl . I think I may try to go with her . And shes never been to WDW .
    Also, Dizneyblondes birthday and any trips in between . It will probably pay for itself . :yes:

    You'll only be able to redeem one. I'd use the 3 day pass towards the AP. The 1 day pass is good forever (it won't expire if you don't use it). You could always use it towards your next AP.

    About $460. You'll get all the credit for what you paid for the hopper though

    hmmmm, I think I may still do it . I know Jim and I we won't want to wait till September and most likely go in May , so I can order the DDE in the meantime and save on meals that way . It doesn't look like I'm going with the FDDP for August unless they offer us a better deal .

    So if i have a 5 day MYW park hopper how much would it cost me to upgrade to AP?

    Just thinking it might be worth doing one for discounts if we don't get FDDP.

    Hmmmm...seems as though they would still have the value of one you had purchased. Since it was cost free to you, it would be a great idea to trade up with it, as long as it were allowed by WDW. :yes:

    I don't know. I wonder if you could send me a photocopy of the ticket, or take a shot of both sides of it and I could check for you? :unsure: I'm terrible with knowing about tickets, so I'd have to ask at Guest Relations.

    I use an AP and that keeps me pretty uniformed about all the other options out there.

    But I can certainly help you check if you'd like. :yes:

    That would be fab thanks Tink if you don't mind me having your email address.

    I could scan the tickets in and send them as a attchment.

    Just trying to look into all my options to save money.

    What discounts and benefits to AP holders actually get though?

    There are so many AP perks I can't keep up with them all. Discounts on food in several places, discounts on purchases at the World of Disney (and some others, so always ask). Discounts on some events like miniature golf, water parks, ect.

    There is a Passholders website that can keep you up to date. It's an official Disney site though, so it's often down. :lol:

    If it looks like the regular pass, then it shouldn't be a problem. We upgraded our passes in Feb. 2007 at the guest relations at MGM..
