Seriously, most of the info above is wrong. It’s not surprising to get wrong info when calling Disney, because the cast members answering the phones are reservationists … they are not trained in the fine details of all WDW policies. It’s a darn shame when a travel agent gives wrong info, however.
Please believe me that what I’m about to write is the truth. It’s not a guess, it’s not my opinion, it’s informed fact.
[B][U]A Give A Day Get A Day ticket is EXACTLY THE SAME as a regular 1-day base ticket that you would buy at the ticket window[/U][/B].
The only difference is that a GADGAD ticket is valid only on the day you receive it (by exchanging the voucher). If you buy a 1-day pass at the ticket window, you could put it in your pocket and not use it until 5 years later, but a GADGAD ticket MUST be used on the day you receive it.
Okay, take a breath, there’s more … :laugh:
[B][U]A GADGAD ticket absolutely can be upgraded exactly like a regular 1-day ticket is upgraded[/U][/B]. If you have a 1-day ticket, you have the full value of that 1-day ticket (gate price of $79 + tax) for upgrading purposes. In other words, if you have a regular 1-day ticket you purchased, and you wish to upgrade it to an 8-day ticket, you have $79 worth of credit towards that upgrade, not just the $3 that the 8th day would cost.
It’s exactly the same with the GADGAD ticket. [B][U]It has $79 + tax worth of value towards upgrading[/U][/B]. I promise you, this is 100% accurate information.
It’s important to note, however, that UNLIKE a regular 1-day ticket you’d purchase,[U] a GADGAD ticket can be upgraded ONLY on the day you use it[/U]. If you wait 'til the next day, it is totally worthless. A purchased ticket has a 14-day window from the date of first use in which you can choose to add to it or upgrade it. But a GADGAD ticket can only be upgraded on that same day you’re using it.
I know it sounds wacky that some stranger in New Jersey is jumping up and down and trying to get you to believe him over a travel agent and over an actual Disney employee, but that is exactly what I’m doing.
I’m not right about a lot of things (just ask my wife! :eek:), but I know for a fact that I am 100% right with all of the above information. Not a guess, not my opinion … 100% verified fact.
