    Question 2 Day Park Hopper Upgrade to AP

    We are getting 2 Day Park Hoppers and plan on going to DLR in June. We want to upgrade to Deluxe APs when we're there (on Friday) and put the cost of our Park Hoppers toward the APs. Then we can take advantage of the AP discounts. Here's my question: If we get them on Friday, will we not be able to get into the parks on Saturday because Saturday is blocked? Should we wait until Saturday to get them and forgo the discounts on food and merch? Thanks for your advice!

    If the days you're going are Friday and Saturday, then do not get your APs until Saturday. Otherwise, you're correct, you'll be blocked out. If you upgrade on Saturday, they'll give you a blockout day pass to show at the gates each time you enter a park for the remainder of the day. You could upgrade first thing Saturday to get your discounts all day.

    Yeah exactly what was said above is correct. If you get the AP on friday you will be blocked on Saturday. Just make sure the CM at the ticket booths gives you the pass that tells the CMs working at the gates know you bought the pass that day. The CM forgot to give us this when we upgraded in Dec and it was a pain because we had to dig out our contracts from the backpack every single time we park hopped

    Yes, as stated by everyone else, you won't be able to get in Saturday if you upgrade your pass Friday but you will be able to get in with your regular tickets if you wait to upgrade until Saturday. I usually advise people who want to upgrade from their tickets to an AP to wait until the last day they use their tickets. You won't be able to apply any AP discounts on Friday though, but the discounts aren't really that big anyways. I rather pay full price on food on Friday than to have to buy a $70 blockout pass on Saturday. You can wait to buy merch until Saturday though since you'll have your pass by then. Just remember to upgrade early on Saturday to take advantage of your discounts for the whole day!
