    AP Purchasing Questions

    Couple of questions for the experts, please!

    I might go the DL/DCA on Thanksgiving after an early lunch/dinner at my cousins' in Orange County. Rather than drive back to San Diego immediately, my sister and I could go to the parks. Since I'll be going twice more in December, I am considering getting a Deluxe AP.

    1. Thanksgiving is a blackout day, but I can use an AP on a blackout day if that's the day I purchase it, right?

    2. A co-worker bought an AP at DL a year or so ago, and said she had to wait in line almost an hour to get her picture taken. I think I saw a thread on where someone got their picture taken and picked up their pass in DCA. Is that right? Seems like a better bet since Thanksgiving will be a busy day.

    Thank you for your help.

    Yes, you can use your purchase price of your ticket on Thanksgiving Day to upgrade to a Deluxe Pass, that works well.

    Very crowded that day so go to DCA, has got to be shorter lines there. You just go to Guest Relations....I believe, but you should confirm that. I always renew through the mail, so not an expert there.
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    When will you be back in December? I would buy a 2 or 3 day pass, and use it Thanksgiving, then again when you go back (as long as it is within the 2 week time frame on the multi-day pass) then you can upgrade and get the full value of the ticket then instead of having to stand in line on Thanksgiving!

    Pictures can only be taken in the bank in DL (unless its changed recently.) Once you have a pic on file, you can get replacements or upgrades in DCA.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    1. The FIRST day of a new AP purchase is NEVER blocked out.

    2. DCA can only deal with RENEWALS who have a photo on file, anyone who needs a photo taken MUST go to the Bank of Main Street at Disneyland. DCA does NOT have a camera for AP purchases.
