If I get a 2 day hopper and I’m doing a split stay and want to get two different magic bands, can I link that one ticket to both bands and stays? Also will be doing the dining plan

Hope this makes sense
No ticket or resort stay, etc. is ever linked "TO" any specific individual MB.
As long as ANY of the MBs connected to YOU are active, they will access any and all valid tickets in your MDX account.

(Any ticket or AP under your file in MDX will work, interchangeably, with any MB in your name in the same MDX account.)

I’m just checking that this is correct?

If we have 5 day base tickets for October - we can upgrade at the Concierge Desk to 5 day PH Plus by paying the cost difference, and we won’t lose FP reservations made with the original 5 day base tickets?

Thank you in advance!

Hi, did you upgrade? Do you mind sharing how much the upgrade cost? Did you get any credit for the free MM? Thank you.
I went to the ticket window at MK, but you can do it at any of the parks ticket windows and I believe guest services at Disney Springs. I would do it before any uses of it. To work out roughly how much what I did was convert how much I paid into USD (XE.com are pretty good for currency calculations) and take that away from the price of an AP and covert the difference back to GBP. As currency rates change throughout the day it'll be only a rough guide, maybe a couple of pounds either way. It's not the fantastic bargain it used to be, but, still cheaper than two separate 14 day tickets and you get the discounts.
MM comes free with the UK pass and as you get MM as part of the AP there is no refund for that.
Bear in mind two things, with the basic AP you lose entry to Typhoon Lagon and Blizzard Beach and, currently, UK holders cannot add the DDP or get it free, unlike US passholders. Very unfair. However you can do Tables in Wonderland. I won't explain that here, but, look it up as that maybe of use to you if there are a lot of you going and you are doing several trips a year.

    Yes.
    You don't lose FPs by simply upgrading.

    just wanted to come back here and let ebveryone know I WAS able to activated our free dining tickets one day early. we were at POP for a 2 day room only, then our package began onthe 3rd day. on day 2 the front desk activated the tickets even tho the package didn't start till the next day. NOTE: the package was booked BEFORE date based ticket pricing. we then went to GR at MK and upgraded to annual passes. got all the business taken care of before the kids and grands got there the next day. we were NOT able to get our mugs a day early tho.

    I just want to confirm something before I go out and spend the money....

    If I want to get a Florida AP, but don't live there year round, but have a Winter House, I can still use my NJ license + Florida Banking Information as long as it has my Florida Winter House address attached to it along with my name?

    I'm pretty sure you have to have a valid Florida ID to get the Florida AP

    I don't think that's the case anymore....

    You’ll need to provide proof of a Florida residential address in order to purchase a Florida Resident park ticket or annual pass. For each ticket or pass purchased for an adult, you may provide any of the following:
    • Valid Florida driver’s license (must have a Florida address)
    • Valid Florida state-issued ID card (must have a Florida address)
    • Valid Florida-based military ID
    *For your convenience, Florida residents with any of the above listed identification can now verify their residency online, which means you can bypass Guest Relations and go straight to the parks! Simply fill out the “Your Florida Resident Information” form upon check-out when you purchase tickets through Disneyworld.com or complete the “Customize Your Tickets” step when you purchase through the My Disney Experience app.
    If you do not have one of the IDs indicated above, then you must provide one of the following—dated within the past 2 months—evidencing a Florida residential address, along with a corresponding picture ID (passport, driver's license, state identification card):
    Proof of Current Mortgage
    You may use a monthly mortgage statement from within the past 2 months; it may not be more than 2 months old. Deeds, mortgage contracts, mortgage payment booklets and leases are not accepted.
    Bills, Policies or Registration
    • Current homeowner's insurance policy or bill
    • Current automobile registration, insurance policy or bill
    • Current Utility bill (power / phone / cable / water)
    • Bills can be no more than 2 months old (P.O. Boxes are not accepted as proof of residency)
    Mail
    • Mail from financial institutions, including checking, savings or investment account statements
    • Mail from federal, state, county or city government agencies
    • Mail can be no more than 2 months old (P.O. Boxes are not accepted as proof of residency)
    Additional members of the same household must only provide proof of same residential address.
    Current statements and bills printed from electronic versions are accepted, along with electronic bills provided via smart phones and tablet devices.
    For more information, please call (407) WDW-PASS or (407) 939-7277—or use the Annual Passholder Help Form to email our dedicated Help Team with any questions you may have about your annual pass. Guests under age 18 must have parent or guardian permission to call.

    Interesting! That seems like it would work for you then (very good if it does), but someone who is more knowledgeable about tickets will probably have a more definitive answer. :)

    We will be moving to Florida but won’t have Florida IDs at the time of our trip. I’d like to buy the 4 day FL tix and use our bank statements with our FL address (says it is okay on the disney website)

    Just wondering if anyone has any trouble with this? And if there is an issue if we could just pay the difference to non resident tickets?

    1. If that's what it says, then I don't see a problem.
    2. Yes. That's the "normal" procedure.

    Ok so I booked my hotel (Swan) and flight tickets, now need to buy park tickets. Where would be the cheapest authorized place to buy? also if my dates change for the stay can the ticket dates be changed as I have to link my ticket to my hotel reservation in the MDE app. how would that work? I need tickets for 4 days

    1. Can change all the time. You need to check on the date you’re ready to buy.
    2. Yes.
    3. You don’t link stand-alone tickets to your resort.

    My mom is a Florida resident with no current AP, she would like a weekday pass. My son is going to be marching in Disney over spring break on a Sunday and she would like to see him. I know that with the waterparks, if that has been used on a pass and an upgrade is wanted, the upgrade must include waterparks. Is the rule the same in this case? If she uses a pass on a weekend, is she unable to upgrade to a weekday only pass?

    Yes a weekday AP can be upgraded to any other AP

    Can an expired 4 day exchange certificate be exchanged for a gift card?
    If allowed, that would be only on a "special case" basis.
    Standard procedure would be that the original value could be applied to a new, current ticket.

    I'm getting lost in what you are calling a "pass."
    If she buys a ANNUAL Pass that can be used on a Sunday, that is the kind of Annual Pass she will own for a year.
    If she buys a regular TICKET and uses it on a Sunday, she can then decide to upgrade that ticket to any kind of Annual Pass that she chooses.

    I bought a AP, but haven't activated it yet. I plan on activating it when I get to the first park (EP). What do I tell them/show them so I don't get charged for parking that first visit?

    I've done this a hundred times in the past, but with the new date based ticketing I have a question. I have a 1 day ticket for a particular date in August. I also have a 3 day PH for dates in November. In the past I had to make sure the 1 day ticket would be taken off the MB tickets by going to guest services and asking them to prioritize the tickets. Now that the tickets are dated, will they system automatically use my 1 day ticket on the August date without visiting Guest services?
