Please help me to decide whether an AP upgrade is worthwhile. I have NO plans to return within the year, and I would only upgrade one ticket (mine) to AP.
Here is what I have purchased thus far for 10 day February trip:
10-day PH tickets from Official Ticket Center for 3 adults, 1 child. Cost of my ticket including tax $463.
Memory Maker $149
4 tickets to After Hours $119 plus tax each
Room only reservation MVT
Can I go to Guest Services on the first day (after entering a park using my ticket) and do the following:
Upgrade to AP
Get refund of Memory Maker
Get refund of difference in AP cost of After Hours tickets
Purchase Tables in Wonderland
I think the math works like this:
AP $798 minus 10-day PH from Disney $500 = $298 to upgrade
Minus refund of Memory Maker $149 = $149
Minus ($119-$89) * 4, or $120 = $29
Plus Tables in Wonderland $150 = $179
We eat at least one TS meal per day and one or two alcoholic drinks per day, so I think over 10 days this would be a savings.
Experts? I never tried to do anything complicated at GS before.
