AP-related Ticket questions

I booked our hotel with an AP rate so I know that I need to get an AP for one of us. We don’t have park tickets yet. (Will be there July 2 - 6). Planning to get them from UT. Should I only buy 3 (family of 4) and order an AP from the UOR website, or should I buy 4 from UT and upgrade one when we get there? Since we don’t have tickets yet, and they will be less than the cost of an AP (2 park, PTP either 4 or 5 days), it seems easier to just order 3 from UT and not have to deal with upgrading but am I missing something here?

Also a couple of probably dumb questions-
An AP can be used in USF and IOA on the same day like a PTP ticket, right? And even though the level of AP I will be getting (Power so July dates aren’t blocked out) doesn’t offer EE, I can still use my PBR room key to get EE, correct?

If you buy a ticket form UT and then upgrade it, you can save a few dollars of the cost of the AP. If Universals sells a ticket for 300 and UT sells the same ticket for 275, if you upgrade the ticket to an annual pass you will pay the difference between an AP and the cost of the ticket that Universal sells it for.

As long as you are not blocked out of a park, the AP will function as a park to park ticket.

For early entry they need to see an AP or a room key, so just use the room key for early entry. No one will ask to see the AP if you have your room key.


Ah. That makes sense. Thank you! I had forgotten that they charge the difference between their regular ticket price and AP, not what I paid for my ticket and the AP price! Thanks for answering the other questions too. :smile:
