Give a Day, Get a Disney Day
Authored by: AquaViola on Wednesday, January 13 2010 @ 06:48 AM CST
You can use this free ticket to upgrade to an Annual Pass or a multi-day park pass. The FAQs are here.

It says:

May I upgrade my free one day ticket to an Annual Pass or multi-day ticket?

Yes, you may upgrade the free ticket to another ticket type of greater value within the applicable upgrade window. However, you are responsible for the incremental cost and the new ticket may only be used by you. No changes or refunds will be given. The value of the free ticket may not be used to combine or upgrade with a separate single or multi-day ticket.

But what if you already have an Annual Pass or multi-day ticket? It says:

I have a valid multi-day ticket or an Annual Pass or Passport, is there anything else that I can receive?

Guests who present a valid multi-day ticket or Annual Pass or Passport may choose from one of the following three options instead of receiving the free 1-day, 1-park ticket:

Disney's FASTPASS® Special Exchange Cards for certain attractions for you and up to 5 additional members of your party. †

A Special Ear Hat figurine with unique trading pins‡

Donate your free ticket to one of the select non-profit organizations designated by Disney Parks:

Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern California

Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida

Dreams Take Flight Canada

*Guests presenting complimentary ticket media are not eligible to receive the Exchange Card or Ear Hat figurine options.

†Present voucher at applicable Theme Park ticket booth for Exchange Card. Participating attractions are subject to change. Valid theme park admission required. The number of Exchange Cards is limited and may not be available after 11 a.m. All Guests in your party must be present to receive the Exchange Card.

‡ See voucher for redemption locations.

Valid ID and a valid Walt Disney World® or Disneyland® multi-day ticket, Seasonal Pass or Annual Pass or Passport along with the voucher will be required at the time of redemption for options. No cash refunds or credits will be provided to Passholders or multi-day ticket holders who participate in the "Give a Day, Get a Disney Day." program and choose not to redeem their voucher for a ticket or exchange it for one of the options.

Karlon from Louisiana- I highly recommend the College Program at Disneyworld! I have participated twice and both were very rewarding experiences. I must warn you that you will not make a lot of money, but the experience is well worth it. Disney actually has a website for the College Program so you can get more information: www.wdwcollegeprogram.com

How far in advance to buy airfare
Authored by: CKlein413 on Wednesday, January 27 2010 @ 12:41 PM CST
Re: •Robin from Kentucky asks when how far in advance he should buy airfare.

There is a website -- http://www.yapta.com/
You can set up an account & then enter your flight information. They will track it for you & let you know when the airfare goes up or down.
Much easier than tracking it yourself. On the off chance it goes down you can request the refund if you want to.
Or, as is usual in our case, you can see how much more expensive the seats get after you book. Makes you feel a little better knowing the guy next to you paid more.
