I hope I can write this clearly enough for you all to understand - dealing with this birthday gift issue is messy business!
I am a So.Cal annual passholder and am blocked out in July/August. Usually, I get the 3/$99 pass so that I can go into the parks 3 times during the blockout period and save $30 in blockout fees over the 3 trips. My birthday is in July, while I am blocked out.
So I have two questions out of all of this mess. A) Can I use my 3/$99 parkhopper as entrance on my birthday in July and then get the $69 gift card ? and B) If so, can use both the 3/$99 parkhopper and the $69 gift card toward my annual pass?
I know that the using the 3/99 parkhopper towards your pass means your pass is valid from the day of FIRST use on the card - but that is fine because my pass expires shortly after my birthday.
I hope this made sense and thanks for the help!
