Please forgive me as I know this has been covered before. I did try different search terms, but couldn't find the previous thread(s).
Here's my simple question:
I am planning a trip to Disneyland the first week of May and am thinking of buying a Deluxe Annual Pass. I can't do a So Cal Pass, and know that I don't want to pony up for a Premier since I usually am unable (and want to avoid) visiting during blackout times anyway.
If I go the first weekend of May, that Saturday is a blockout date...so I was thinking of trying a trick I had read about here--buying a single day ticket on the blackout day and then "upgrading" to an Annual Pass that day while in the parks. If I understand correctly, as long as I do it that day while there, they will prorate the full cost of the single day ticket towards the cost of an Annual Pass. Is this right?
Actually, what I'm thinking of doing is buying a 3-day ticket online, so that I could go on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and then convert to an Annual Pass on that Sunday. *If* I am right, then I would be able to apply the full cost of the three day ticket towards an Annual Pass....(or would they somehow prorate??). I assume the Annual Pass would then retroactively be dated to that Friday as the first day of the pass, but that would be fine.
Thanks in advance,
