Can someone help me? I talked to a cm agent the other day. We want to get AP's. she said if we buy the 5 day park hopper and on the last day take them to the one of the tickets booths they would give us credit or something towards the AP's. I wasn't quite sure what she had said bc it was hard to hear her. Can someone explain. With a family of 6 our tickets for 5 days would be 2,500.00 approx. and to buy AP it would be $200.00 more. I had planned to buy the AP in the begining but she said i would get more out of my $$ if i did it that way. The cost of the AP would pay for themselves in this trip alone.
Which AP? Deluxe? Premium? - Linzee

I'm assuming you are doing a package deal...stick with the hoppers and check for blockout days while you are there, if none then upgrade to APs so you can get the discounts. - Linzee 518.8 #224 5:41PM
If you buy the AP at the beginning of your trip you would be able to use the discount that it offers throughout your trip (food and merchandise) so I'm not sure what the benefit would be to waiting until the end of the trip (unless there are blackout days on the AP during your planned trip). Any ticket you buy can be applied toward the cost of an AP as long as the AP is purchased by the last day that the ticket can be used. - LilSterner

If you are getting a discount on the hopper tickets, maybe that would make it a better deal, but usually it is whatever you paid for the tickets is what you get towards your passes. plus you get a great discount with the passes, which is good for most places, even places in downtown disney. I do know some people buy their tickets through a package with the hotel, so if that is why you want to buy the tickets first, make SURE the tickets are upgradeable because sometimes they are not. Hope this helps you. - secretagentangel
