Exclamation DVC Member PAP Special Pricing - Update Post 133

Effective October 1 through December 31, 2012, DVC Members may Purchase, Renew, or Upgrade to a WDW Premium Annual Pass for $399 (plus tax) compared to the regular price of $559, a savings of $160.

If the purchase is through Member Services, you will receive a voucher that must be redeemed no later than December 31, 2013.

If you are doing the purchase or upgrade at any Park (including TTC, DTD, water parks or Epcot International Gateway) ticket or Guest Relations window you will receive live tickets. Guests must present their DVC Membership Card. They may also purchase PAPs for immediate family members residing in the same household; Adults must provide proof they reside at the same address.

Normal procedures will apply for upgrades.

Note that you cannot upgrade from a pass with a higher Gate price than $399.00 (plus tax).

Florida Residents cannot use the Monthly Payment Plan for these tickets.

Am I reading this right? $399 for a full year's annual pass, premium at that, to WDW for DVC members?

When a DLR premium pass is $649?

Thanks for catching the typo, which I have now corrected.

But it does go to show that I am not totally perfect.

We've pretty much always bought APs. So I have no idea how this works....we will need tickets before 10/1. So for example if I buy my daughter (under 10) a 9 day hopper with water park for $392 I could go exchange that tix for an PAP for $7? Would I have to do the exchange on 10/1? Or prior? Does the tix need to have days remaining prior to the exchange?

I already have an AP voucher which I will need to use on 9/30 when I get to WDW, can I go to guest relations on 10/1 to upgrade my ticket to the prem AP. I understand I would not get a refund, no biggie but having the opportunity to have the prem AP at this cost is a great deal.

Cheshire, if you have vouchers for an AP, can you call member services and upgrade the voucher?

What should I do if tickets wont be used for a year or 2? Buy them when we are there in Nov and just hold onto them? Isnt there an exp date printed on the pass when you buy it? Thanks Fig.

You can't do that as it states in what you quoted (well not 2 years anyway). You must redeem the voucher by the date stated, 12/31/13. Normally vouchers have no expiration date, but to get the DVC price, you must redeem by the stated date.

You should be able to upgrade tickets to this DVC AP on or after 10/1. You should use the tickets once before upgrading. It needs to be done before you use up all the days on the ticket (generally, there are some nuances to that piece but that is the safest approach).

LOL. You're "practically perfect" cheshire. Thanks for the update, we are back in the world in October and we were trying to figure out if we were purchasing AP's
