Gotta love my DW. She just called me at work and says she wants to go to WDW for 3-4 days in the last week of June. I have the week off from work, was already planning on just quiet staycation at home. She said I’m always working hard and I’m happiest when we’re at WDW, so this is my Father’s Day present.
We also have a full week WDW vacation already booked in the last week of September, staying at CSR in a new tower room with 7-day tickets.
We live in Atlanta, so we can get in our car after breakfast, drive to WDW with time to spare for a 6 PM ADR.
We typically go once per year, but I was toying with the idea of upgrading to AP when we are there in September. Now with two trips in a little over three months, getting AP makes a lot more sense.
How do I do this? If I am going in two weeks, I would like to get FP reservations ASAP. Do I buy tickets online today and upgrade to the AP while at the park? If I buy AP on-line today, when can I make FP reservations now? Do I have to activate AP at the Customer Service at the Parks?
What about the tickets with the September reservation, change it to a room only reservation?
Can I sneak in a last-minute on-site reservation using an AP discount? I found a good deal at a nice off-site hotel (thanks Marriott rewards program), so getting a room is covered but I would prefer on-site.
I understand ticketing but really don’t know much about how AP really works.
Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.
