OK so here is our situation and I am looking for both an answer and perhaps advice on whom to call at the DLR to get the question answered.
Our So Cal Premier (or whatever the $239 pass is called) AP expires on or about may 15
We are taking the kids (2) up to the resort for three days - 6/10 through 6/12. Dates are not negotiable.
Deluxes are blackedout on 6/11. Our So Cal pass is also blacked out on the 10th and the 11th
They are offering us $20 off to renew to Deluxe now with a pretty meaningless 20% off on merchandise $50 and over. We would not renew to Deluxe. We MIGHT use the AP for a discount at HoJos but I haven't even see what that is for the dates in question and given the good deals there I doubt it is more than $20-30.
What I want to know is there anything that would preclude us from letting our APs expire, getting either the Costco 4 day or a three day hopper, go the 10-12th and then use that ticket media as credit toward NEW so cal passes (with a renewal date the first day we use that media - or June 10)? We really are not fans (most of the time) of summer/Saturdays so the so cal really does usually works just fine. If we used the Costco pass we would like go a 4th blacked out day in the summer prior to converting. Indeed, that is what we did last year when we got APs for the first time in a decade.
Thoughts? Am I missing something critical?
