I apologize if this has been asked before, but I did a couple searches and couldn't find anything specific to these questions.
My pass expires in May and my girlfriend and I are going to the parks this coming week. My gf doesn't have a pass so I'll be buying her a two day Park Hopper. I've used my own ticket previously to upgrade to an AP, but will I be able to use the value of her ticket to renew my AP early? I kept thinking of ways I wouldn't be able to, but her name won't be tied to the ticket. I guess they'd wonder why I'd be using a regular Park Hopper instead of my pass..but I'm paying for the Park Hopper, so I figure I should be able to put that credit towards another year for my own AP. Any insight would be appreciated.
Also related, is there ever a time that's 'too early' to renew? I'm guessing they wouldn't care since money is money.
Thanks in advance!
