I am having horrible anxiety about this, lol! I am just so nervous about plunking down all this money now and then have them say no to the upgrade on 10/1. Saving money shouldn't make me this anxious

I think I'm SOL here but want to make sure. We just purchases AP's in the parks last week ( if only I had known, wish they had amde the announcement a bit sooner...) When we return in another month there is no way to get a free upgrade to the PAP's is there?

It could be only 1 week prior to the trip before we know but we would want to book with an AP discount at the resort. Do you have to have the PAP in hand to check in at the resort? Can I call or go online to order the discount passes right before we leave and would that confirmation be good enough to check in with or would I have to go to a park (late evening > 9 PM on 11/23) to buy the PAP before checking in? Of course that is assuming that any park ticket location can redeem this offer.

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.

You need to have the annual pass number or confirmation number handy. The front desk can call DVC and ask them to confirm your purchase.

OK ticket guru what about this case.

We have DVC AP that will expire in April. What options do we have or are we SOL?

Can I upgrade the current AP to a PAP for the remainder of the time for no cost?

From what I am reading I can't buy the PAP and wait until April to activate it.

Any ideas?

As the OP stated existing AP vouchers/will calls don't expire. I was even told by member services when I asked that if i happened to lose my confirmation number it was linked to my DVC membership number and they could look it up for me. Not sure if guest services at parks/resort has that ability or inclinationbut I thought I read that the computers were 'talking to each other' now. The CM proceeded to check my file and reminded me of a seminar I have booked for F&W.

I believe you can buy the PAP, receive a voucher and you will have until Dec. 2013 to activate it.

Cheshire,

I will be at WDW 9/21-9/30, and am purchasing a 10-day park hopper. I leave on 9/30 (flying home), so won't be there on 10/1 to upgrade it to a PAP.

I know that I can't upgrade it over the phone, and have to do it in person.

Do you think there is any chance that guest services would let me do the upgrade on 9/30...just one day early????

Arriving 9/29. Can I buy a Military Salute ticket and use it 9/29 and 9/30 and upgrade it to a DVC PAP on 10/1. Would the cost be $399 + tax minus the $156 I paid for the Military Salute ticket for a cost of $243 + tax?

Edited: Oh crud, new Military Salute doesn't start until 10/1, too. So, that won't work at all. I suppose I could buy a 3 day ticket at SoG, use it 9/29 and 9/30 and upgrade it to the DVC PAP on 10/1. Would that work?

The internal notice in part specifically states: "Disney Vacation Club Members may Purchase, Renew or Upgrade to a Premium Annual pass for $399 plus tax."

1. I think you would get an even exchange and not receive a refund.

2. As long as you purchase the voucher by December 31 you could convert it to a live PAP in April 2013.

No. The new pass will not be in the Automated Ticketing System until it goes on sale, which would be just prior to Park opening on October 1. Even if the person in a booth, including a coordinator or manager, wanted to authorize it, it would not be in the system.

You are correct. The current AFS tickets all expire at 11:59:59pm on September 30 this year and have a value of zero in October 1. The new promotion cannot be activated (or sold at WDW) prior to October 1.

But you could get regular military-discount MYW passes that are at least three days and upgrade on/after October 1 using the regular upgrade rules.

I am glad that you clarified this again, because I think some people are missing that bit.

Chesire... What happens if the voucher is not activated by December 31,2013

Will it then become activated and good until Dec 30,2014 or am I out of luck. We are planning a two week trip in the summer,2014 and won't be able to activate before that since our next few trips are already covered by the APs that we have now.

If you redeem your voucher on Dec. 31, 2013, it would be good until Dec. 31, 2014.

You could probably activate it later by paying the difference to full price (my guess). Its not going to be automatically activated on 12/31/13 (not a guess).
