Tried at Disney springs yesterday. Quoted $667 inc tax to upgrade 21 day ult adult so still dearer than the app.

When I left I checked the app and the price of my ticket had increased to exactly that price even though he assured me nothing had changed on my ticket.

Went back to explain that whatever he had done had affected my upgrade price in the app. After quite a while and Getting a manager involved they agreed to honour the original app price. Left with no choice at that point to upgrade the ticket which I did.

My other tickets are showing the $595 upgrade price still.

So, just asking for a price in Disney can change the price in the app negatively so be careful and be prepared to argue and stand your ground if it happens. I was lucky that I had other tickets I could show him with the original price.

Obviously you could skip the asking and just upgrade in the app for peace of mind.

Be careful out there folks.

There still doesnt appear to be any rhythm nor reason behind their pricing 😡

We upgraded last week and the manager also had to sort ours out.

One thing he did say was that the app will only show the upgrade to platinum plus as our ultimate tickets include water parks. If you upgrade through the app they will then downgrade you at guest services if you dont want the plus. So if the app shows a better price its best to use that.

Any links for this please?

Just to add another data point.
For background we booked with Wdtc on free dine and the 14 days for 7 days ultimates, paying 399 for an adult.
I asked for an upgrade price today in liberty sq ticket centre at MK and was offered $702 for the premium AP. I then tried at guest info at bottom of main St and was offered $597. I asked why there was a difference and she said it was because she had carried over our resort discount. Will be going back with ID tomorrow to buy it.
Thanks

Eta I can't see any price on the app - just a message saying please speak to guest info if you would like to upgrade

$597 is correct, thats what we paid last week. That was the lowest we were quoted and they honoured that at guest services.

We may be going back to WDW in summer after our Xmas trip. Im hoping I can use my 14 day ultimates at WDW over Xmas then on the last day upgrade to a DVC Gold Pass next summer, no one on any online forum has advised if this is possible.
