Default Ticket upgrade question

I know this has been discussed..just can't find it..I am buying a 4 day park hopper from UT and then want to upgrade after first use to an AP..Does it matter if it is an Email ticket? As long as it is linked to my magic band it should be fine? Can I do it at the hotel or do I have to do it in the park? Thanks

I think you'll be fine but for more authoritative answers and increased visibility you should post this in the stupid question thread

Upgrade to annual pass has to be done at the parks or Disney Springs. Email ticket shouldn’t matter at all as long as linked to you. Good luck.

When you upgrade a ticket, they access the ticket via your magic band. As long as your ticket is on your magic band, they shouldn’t need a physical ticket!

also when you upgrade, any adult has to be present and have Photo ID. At least they requested this from my wife and I at MK this past December. My wife left her wallet at the hotel - afterall isn't that why we have magic bands. Luckily the kids sent her a picture of it via their phone and we showed that at the window and they accepted it.

You also need your DVC membership card if you are getting the Gold AP.

You need your DVC Membership card to get member pricing on any eligible annual pass (Gold, Platinum, Platinum Plus).

As mentioned - do it at DS or at the Parks. Hotels cannot help with this. You can do it at a GS location or a ticket booth.

You also don't have to use it first if you're thinking that's necessary. You can upgrade and get it bridged without ever using it if you wish. You do still want to go in knowing what the value should receive is and how much it will cost to upgrade. CM's still make some mistakes with this.
