Darn it I am WAY too slow posting...

This is good news! Or bad news, for the wallet that is.

We buy tickets from UT at a decent discount and then upgrade them so there is a savings to be had there too. Usually 2 trips (especially with hoppers) makes APs worth doing. Then you could even do another trip next May with no ticket cost

I keep checking DVC points for Nov. Since I own at SSR I can book that now but need to wait for other resorts. If DH comes with me we'll have Samwise with us so a DVC resort would be best. SSR has lots of good walking areas for a dog. OKW doesn't seem to be as walkable but so much cheaper pointwise. VWL would have the nice walk to the campgrounds, not much walking at AKV, BLT is just no, BWV and BCV would be nice for the people but maybe not so much for the dog ... besides they are so hard to get during F&W .... I got really lucky last year and got BWV for 4 nights! What to do????

Call CRO, change to the AP rate, upgrade your tickets when you get to the parks

You have 24 hours I think to show your AP after check-in (never been asked for it BTW)

Jeanette thanks so much. So would I ask to cancel my package that is PIF now?? And then rebook under the AP rate, adding in my tickets??? And then when we go to MK our first day there, go to Guest Services and upgrade the tickets to AP's?? Or should I just book with the AP discount, then order the AP's in the mail?? We have time to receive them.

Or you could just book with the AP rate and purchase the tickets when you get there. I'd check Undercover Tourist thru the Mousesavers site ... usually you can save money!!!
