Simply the difference on the day between what your pass is worth (Disney wholesale price) versus current cost but be aware they have just increased the AP prices by 19% so not a great deal

lots of threads on that topic

to sum them up

if you use waterparks or golf, you will be required to upgrade to platinum plus ($1219 + tax)
if you don't, you may be able to upgrade to platinum (no waterparks) at $1119 + tax

you hold a 14 days ticket which has a relative value of $490 (true value can only be determined on the day you upgrade

so you're looking at $800 to upgrade your ticket to platinum plus, and $700 to upgrade to platninum

but that's only a guesstimate, true price can only be quoted on the day, at the desk

It will be the AP price less what you paid for your ultimates. I have decided to do it during my September visit and I am expecting the cost to be almost as much as the cost of a second set of 14 day ultimates.

However we don't have the dining plan in September so I will get some dining discounts and for the following trip I have decided to forgo free dining because it doesn't suit how we eat anyway. I think the price increase does make it questionable as to whether it is worth it.

with what you'll be paying to upgrade, you might be able to get almost 2 sets of 14 days tickets ...

It could be more than one set of tickets, but it would not be two. I am not under the illusion that this is any kind of a good financial deal, but I think it will work for us this time.

Please can anyone tell me if we would you be credited for 7 days or 14 days tickets against the Platinum pass?
Also, does anyone know if we updated the Ultimate ticket on the first day of use, would the AP commence on that date or the 14th day.

Thank you in advance for any input

I have never upgraded before, however my current ticket is called "14 day Ultimate" so I expect they calculate based on that. You are converting the 14 day to an AP, so I also expect that it would be the first day.
