I’ve just asked this on chat, but I’m trying to get to grips with the forum so I’ll ask here too…
I have already purchased the 14 day UK tickets for our July trip. I’m looking into the possibility of upgrading one of our tickets to preferred AP to get free parking. It looks like the only downside to this is that the AP ticket only allows entry to VB after 4pm.
I have some specific questions to help me decide if this is something to pursue or not.
What time does VB generally close in summer?
I know it used to be best to arrive early to VB, but if we can’t access the park until after 4pm, what can we expect the crowd level and wait times to be like?
If we got a 2 park AP for the free parking, would that allow any kind of discount for daily VB admission?
Is it possible to upgrade a ticket AFTER you’ve started using it? What I’m wondering is if we hit VB using our UK ticket on the first couple of days (paying for parking), could we then upgrade for the remainder of our trip giving VB access after 4pm with free parking?
How do you actually go about upgrading? Can it be done in advance on the phone or do I need to do it in person at the park?
I’ve already booked and paid for a room using hotels.com. Can I apply for an AP room discount or has that ship sailed?
Any other advice or experience with upgrading to AP and accessing VB after 4pm would be welcome.
