Cool Premium Annual Passes for DVC Members for $399!

From AllEars:

Today, Claire Bilby, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Vacation Club, announced on the Disney Vacation Club member website via video, exciting new member perks coming soon.


From October 1 through December 31, 2012, Members will be able to purchase a Walt Disney World Premium Annual Pass for just $399 (that's a savings of $300 off the regular price!)*. Premium Annual Passholders enjoy unlimited admission to four Theme Parks, a year's worth of unlimited access to Disney's Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Parks, DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course (greens fees only) and more!

Insider's Tip: A Premium Annual Pass certificate is not activated as a ticket until it is used the first time. So, if you've already purchased an Annual Pass, you can still take advantage of this offer by purchasing it now (between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2012), but waiting to activate it until after your current pass has expired. Passes purchased on this offer must be redeemed by December 31, 2013.


October 1 will also mark the launch of a new ongoing Member perk – 10% off merchandise** at all Disney owned and operated merchandise locations at Parks and Resorts at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Disney's Vero Beach Resort, Disney's Hilton Head Island Resort and Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Ko Olina, Hawai'i.


Visit dvcmember.com on October 1 for more details!

That's cheaper than the regular Annual Pass! Makes me wonder if the annual pass will go cheaper. Hmmmmm.

I'm assuming we'll be able to upgrade from the regular to premium AP at this rate - it would only be about $15 more per person. I renewed my AP but have to pick them up at the park on my next visit in mid-October. I would love to be able to add the water parks for less than $50 a year for all three of us!

I have the same question. We just purchased an AP for our daughter in August and would love to just upgrade it to a PAP.

We had plans of purchasing regular AP's on Sept 26 (will be in parks 9/26-9/28). We're on the Fantasy 9/29-10/6 and have plans to be back in the parks 10/6-10/9. Any chance I will be able to "switch" to a Premium AP from the regular AP I was planning on buy on Sept 26 ?

No, that is the Premier pass

And just another FYI. You can't take the "discounted" premium and get a "discount" on the Premier. What they do is take the cost of the Premier and deduct ONLY what you PAID for the it from the price of the Premier. No "bring to gate" etc...

The question I have is we bought vouchers for our family before the last price increase and we plan to redeem them on our next trip November 1st. Is there are way to exchange the tickets for the new discount amount, or get a credit for the new discount?

Would love to save over $500 from what we paid..

Well I guess we can't change to premium. Just bought an annual in August. Bummer.

So sad there is not an offer for Disneyland too, but this discount is really good, glad for people who will be able to use it.
But the – 10% off merchandise is good for everyone!

Wonderful! I was just weighing options between Annual Pass and Park Hoppers, this offer makes the decision a whole lot easier
May even prompt an additional visit Home

I have read the internal notice for ticketing people and have checked with WDW Ticketing Administration.

The notice specifically states that:

"Note: Upgraded ticket price must be an equal or greater value."

So that if you have a current AP, or a voucher/certificate/will-call for an AP, you cannot do this upgrade.

However, you c an purchase a voucher before December 31, 2012 and use it after your current AP expires in 2013.

Thanks for the udpate, however, not what many of us want to hear. I would get the new PAP in January, but since my DH just renewed his regular AP last month, he won't have a PAP until October 2013. So I'll have a PAP and he has a regular AP. Obviously we won't be using the water park perks for the PAP, so the only advantage for us will be the 20% shopping discount if that is offered for 2013. Bummed...

Too bad. I was hoping to upgrade my current standard AP to the PAP for the remaining term but... Not sure why I could upgrade a cheap ticket but not a costly one without expecting a refund.

I will buy a voucher for 2013 but I figure this is going to go over like a lead ballon. Sorry you work in ticketing because MS is telling folks something very different and the outrage is going to be fun!
