    I spoke to 3 different CMs, ticketing, supervisor and ap CM. They said if we can't do the upgrade online they can't do it
    On the phone. Please post if you have better luck.

    I'm sure this is answered somewhere in the thread but I have not seen it after 10 pages. I have a non expiring 10 day ticket bought and a couple of days used in the 90's. Is it still good? How do I find out how many days I have left? Second question. I have the same child ticket for my daughter. She died. Can I use it for my son and pay an upgrade price? No trickery going on. They are really my tickets.

    I'm wondering if we will be able to do it ourselves online after the October 16th changes or if third party tickets will still have to be done on-site. I'd like to do it before then to avoid any potential price increase on APs, but I've kind of given up hope of being able to upgrade before I go at the end of November.

    1. "Old" tickets are still honored for use at WDW.
    2. Take the ticket to a Guest Relations at WDW for that info.
    -OR-
    Below is a quote from an eMail from WDW Guest Relations regarding "days left" on tickets:
    3. So sorry to hear that.
    4. I can't speak for WDW, but that ticket will likely be honored for your son.
    There may or may not be a need for an upgrade charge.

    I'm sure it's been asked, BUT

    If I am doing a split stay (4 nights and then 2 nights) and package 2-day MYW tickets to my FIRST reservation, are they *only* good for the duration of that reservation or are they good for "14 days from activation"? (Only reason I would package is to get the free mini-golf so if they would be restricted to the reservation stay I will NOT package.)

    Wanting to get them bought before the ticket changes this weekend.

    Currently-purchased tickets will be good for 14 days from first use.

    With impending ticket changes, I am still debating whether I should upgrade my renewed WDW AP to a Premier Passport for a planned fall 2019 trip to DL.

    If I went ahead and bought DL tickets (+Maxpass), can I apply that and my renewed AP to the Premier Passport price? I'm nervous that the Premier Passport will also increase, though.

    There are some special rules for the Premier Passport that don't apply to regular upgrades, but I'm not comfortable telling you that,
    for sure, you can combine those multiple items into a single new AP.
    (I THINK that you can, but that's a lot of money to risk.)
    And, DL has different ticket rules than WDW, and I'm not versed in them at all.

    I was nervous about guessing with that amount of money too. Thank you for your help! I may call Disney’s AP line to ask.

    It’s looking like I’d be right on the cusp of the Premier Passport being worth it, so I may just be better off getting tickets now.

    Completely new on Disney vacation. We are going to Wilderness Lodge 11/29/18-12/3/18. Currently I only have Room Only reservation and haven't bought the tickets yet. I found 4 day park hopper with extra day on UT for $1362.37 (2 adult + 1 child). Should I just go ahead and buy or wait until October 16 for the new pricing? Looking at the current 1 day ticket calendar, our arrival day (11/29) is a value day - what are the chances that we'll get cheaper tickets with the new pricing?

    I can maybe buy the paper ticket (expiration date 2/29/19) from UC now, don't link them to MDE and then check the new price on 10/16? I read they can refund (minus 5%) the paper ticket if not already linked. Any experience with refund with Undercover Tourist?

    I have 1-day non-MK value tickets that don't expire until December 2019. Will the 3-tiers (value, regular, peak) remain the same for single-day tickets? Will we be able to use them for any of the parks after 10/16 without paying for an upgrade?

    My instinct says buy now.
    I’m thinking that any restock fee would eat up any savings if you return UT tickets.
    But nobody knows anything, for sure.

    AFAIK, any current tickets will retain their current “rules.”

    Just so I know what I am talking about when I try to get this all completed:
    I have a 2009 unused, 1-day, non-hopper ticket. It is not linked to MDE.
    1. There is no longer a financial benefit to using the ticket at WDW first before upgrading/adding more days? I want to make this a 4-day, non-hopper ticket.
    2. Is this something I have to call in to get changed?
    3. I believe I paid about $80 in 2009 for this ticket. Will they use the $80 value and subtract that from the 4-day, non-hopper ticket as my upgrade amount?
    4. Or a different amount? What would it be, if it is different?

    Thanks so much for all of your information and time!

    Currently, AP certificates ("vouchers") don't expire until the end of the year 2030.
    (Some say even longer.)

    1. Correct.
    2. You didn't say from whom you bought the ticket.
    In many cases, you must wait until you get to WDW in order to upgrade, but you can certainly call and "ask nicely."
    3. Again, you didn't say from whom you bought the ticket.
    In many cases, it doesn't matter how much you actually paid for the ticket. In other cases, it does matter.
    4. Go to the "Cost to Upgrade" post in this Sticky (HERE.)
    Carefully read the situations (as in, from whom and when, you bought the ticket.)
    Then, do the math.

    If you need more help, please post back with more information on your ticket.
