    using disney dollars to buy ap

    I was wondering if anyone knows if you can use disney dollars to upgrade a 2 day ticket to a socal ap. I want to give my daughter an ap for her birthday. She lives in L.A. but I don't. I was thinking of buying her a two day pass and then giving her disney dollars to use towards the upgrade since I can't purchase the socal pass myself. Is this possible? Thanks for you help.

    Disney Dollars = scam.

    Just give her cash! But to actually answer your question... I don't know. I wouldn't risk it unless you can get a definitive answer somewhere.

    Re: using disney dollars to buy ap

    I don't see why not... you can use gift cards towards tickets and AP's...
    but I'm not positive on DD! Why not just give her a gift card instead?? They are refundable if lost (with reciept) where as you're out of luck with DD.

    Although I am a big fan of the new DD with the POTC theme!!!! very cool!!

    You can call guest services and they can tell you for sure!

    You can get cash for your unused Disney Dollars (they buy them back) so I don't see why they wouldn't.

    Sure you can. Why would they not honor their own "money".

    I had a CM refuse to buy them back once because I didn't have the receipt for them.

    Re: using disney dollars to buy ap

    I don't want to give her money because she is a college student and I am afraid she will end up using the money for other things and I want her to to be able to get the ap. We give her money for food and stuff but I want her present to be special. I guess I will call disney and ask them.

    Why not just buy the AP and give that to her instead of having her upgrade a two day SoCal pass? Seems to me it would be less work for her.

    Since an AP voucher includes admisson to the park, all she would have to do with the AP voucher is go get her picture taken.

    I always thought with an AP voucher you had to go to the ticket booths to exchange for something to gain entry to the park, then to get the pic taken? If this is true wouldn't it make more sense to buy a ticket and then just upgrade to the AP inside? (I have never done either, and I know what can happen when I assume which is why I am asking).

    I am unable to buy the AP for her because she lives in L.A. and I want her to have the southern california resident ap. I am not buying her the socal two day pass just a regular two day pass so that she can show her southern calif ID and upgrade to a socal AP once she enters the park. I do not have a southern california ID and therefore am unable to purchase a socal ap.
