I have an 11 day trip coming ip in august with the wife and kid, 7 day park pass. We are leaving the day before GE opens so like any self respecting nerd ive booked a long weekend at the end of September with my brother to go see that.
If replace my 7 day ticket with an annual pass, can i set the start date to whenever i want?
If both your stays are within 30 days of each other, you will not be able to book FPs for the second stay until you have used up days from the first. Even if staying onsite for both. Unless you forgo a day or two from stay #1.
So, I decided this is just crazy, so I called the Annual Passholder hotline and spoke with a CM.
The answer was that if an AP holder has on-site reservations, she can make FPPs for up to 14 days and that includes 2 separate stays. So in my case (Dec 7-14 and Jan 3-7) I will be able to make FPPs (if there are any – that’s a different problem!) for all of those days. The system is set up to allow this.
In practice though, this has always been a problem.
I have lost count of the number of threads and posts there have been over on the DIS from people who haven’t been able to book for the second onsite stay.
In many cases, the AP helpline can help, but often the solution has been for them to book the FPs - and that means they can’t be modified. But sometimes people just find themselves hitting their head off a brick wall.
The CM told me that when I go on line at 60 days out from my second trip the system is not allowing me to book, if I call the Annual Passholders hotline they can fix it. So I will be certain to report when I get to that point!
