Yep!

Able to upgrade an activated "new" AP. Not a renewal so my original AP cost more then the magic $399.

I thought I might be doomed when the CM tried to call someone but they didn't pick up she said "can I just give you the refund in a gift card?" Of course I agreed! (I would have been fine without a refund!)

Now I have to plan a late Spring trip to go to the water parks!

We are going down in 3 weeks, is there any reason I should buy this now or just wait until we get there?

Sorry if this has been asked, I don't have time to go through the entire thread!

If the ones you are buying in 3 weeks are the ones you are going to use for that trip. Then I see no reason to do it in advance. The price is not going to change.

We will also be down there in 3 weeks, have fun..

If you're going to be using the AP as soon as you buy it, there's no need to purchase in advance. Just make sure you have your DVC ID card with you if you plan on taking advantage of the DVC Premium Passport offer.

PAP question

I plan to buy the PAP when I arrive at WDW on Dec. 1, 2012. I would also like to buy a PAP voucher to use the following year but won't be able to activate it in person in Dec. 2013. Can I activate it in Nov. 2013, 30 days in advance?

You can activate it (in person) any day in 2013. The clock will start ticking on the pass the day you activate it.

The voucher must be purchased (in person or over the phone) before the end of 2012.

I would like to get the cost benefit of the PAP this year but don't anticipate that next year when it is time for renewal I will want to stay with the PAP.
If you already know that you're going again at the end of next year and the following year I would say purchase the and lock and lock in the 3 the 399 price which will be cheaper in the long run even if you renew a regular annual pass plus getting all the benefits of the premere

Not sure you understood correctly. drcoulsey wants to buy a live AP on-site in December 2012 AND purchase a voucher to be redeemed in 2013. The question is how close does he have to be to the December 2013 expiration date of the FIRST pass before he can use the voucher and renew for another 365 days?

Ah, OK.

Good question, since it's not permissible to hold two APs at the same time.

Maybe someone else knows the answer?

He can purchase vouchers/will-call/exchange certificates from Member Services at any time between now and December 31 this year. They must be redeemed no later than December 31, 2013.

He can purchase live APs at any Park ticket or Guest Relations window at any time between now and December 31, 2012.

There is no restriction on a person holding more than one AP at a time. Actually, for example, at the water parks we will suggest to AP holders who do not want to do DQ or Golf that instead of upgrading to a PAP that they purchase Water Park Annual Passes.

There is no such rule! See my comment above.

Two questions:

1) Can you have duplicate passes even if they are the same pass, in this case two active Premium Annual Passes at the same time? I'm assuming yes but figured I would ask because that's a little different than having separate parks AP and DisenyQuest AP.

2) What if you want the two passes to run consecutively? First PAP is purchased 12/1/12. Runs through 12/1/13. How close do you have to be to 12/1/13 in order to use a voucher to extend to 12/1/14? Can the voucher be redeemed in November '13? August '13? June '13?

The rule on renewals is +/- 30 days from the expiration date of the AP, and I don't think that would change for this offer (other than you couldn't go past 12/31/13 even if it was less than +30 days).
