[QUOTE=mickeysgirlz;1036207]I’m an annual FL passholder, so different rules apply for me BUT, are you 100% sure that you can apply your park tickets to your room key? I don’t think you can? I had friends that had the OLD no expiration tickets, and altho they changed them to new park tickets, they could not add them to the room key because they were NOT park of the original package?
The rason your friends couldn’t have those tickets coded onto their KTTW cards had nothing to do with the fact that they weren’t part of the package. Rather, it’s because they were “old” tickets.
Disney has very specific ticketing policies and procedures. These policies and procedures have nothing to do with logic and common sense, and therefore it’s literally impossible to use logic to figure out what “should be” … it’s just a matter of what is and what isn’t.
In this case, it’s true that an “old” ticket can’t be coded onto a KTTW card. But a ticket that is is still eligible for upgrading CAN be coded onto the card. Tickets can only be added-to, upgraded, echanged for credit, etc., up to 14 days from the date of their first use. This applies even to a ticket with the No Expiration option. [There are, however, some different rules for some Florida resident tickets and some military tickets, which further complicates everything].
DId you ever hear the old saying that English is such a difficult language to learn because it has so many rules AND so many exceptions to those rules? It’s the same with Disney tickets. But I’ve spent years studying the system, keeping up with the changes, etc., plus I’m one of those people who is very detail-oriented, so I’m confident in my knowledge of Disney ticketing.
But to come back to a specific example, there are many people every day who book room-only resort reservations and who separately buy new park tickets from places like AAA, Maple Leaf Tickets, Undercover Tourist, Official Ticket Center, and others. These folks show up at their Disney resort, check-in at the front desk, and then, since they’d rather not carry around two different cards, go to their resort’s Lobby Concierge desk or go to any park ticket window and have their tickets coded onto their KTTW cards. It happens every single day, it’s nothing odd or exotic for the DIsney cast members.
But remember the exceptions to the rule, the fact that a ticket that is no longer eligible for upgrading can’t be coded onto the card. Neither can any sort of Annual Pass or Florida seasonal pass or Play Three or Play Four ticket, by the way.
