Cheshire Figment. We are here at WDW now and experienced a problem: can you shed some light on this. I entered MK on a 6-day (basic) ticket that was purchased from Undercover Tourist in order to activate it.
I then went to Guest Relations inside MK to upgrade to the DVC PAP and was charged $182. ( I had not prefigured what the cost should be as I should have). A couple of hours later I reviewed it and returned as they had not bridged the cost of the 6-day ticket. I had noticed that the turnstiles had a read error and was unsure if it had activated my ticket. The CM told me that it had activated my ticket but that he could not bridge the 6-day to the current gate price because it was purchased in 2010 and that he had to use had I had actually paid to UCT, $216. He also earlier had tried to tell me that I had bought that ticket directly from Disney. I had to convince him that I only buy DVC annual passes directly-- all others from UCT.
I asked me to speak to a manager but he went in the back and came back out, saying he had checked with him and the policy said only tickets bought in the current year from discount ticket firms could be bridged to the gate price. I was persistent in my opinion and he disappeared in the back again. After awhile he can back, again stated the policy for the current year. But that he would do a one-time exception and credit me with the gate price.
We also noticed during this time that he had issued me my new PAP with an expiration of 8/11/11 instead of 11/26/13.
My big concern is that I have at least 6+ inactivated tickets from UCT.
Cheshire, can you verify what they said. Does it matter what year these tickets were purchased when it comes to bridging. I appreciate your input.

really? I used the disney gift cards you purchase vs the CC reward cards

We are the proud new owners of PAP vouchers and $4.00 off next gas fill up.

fyi, i did receive two different will-call numbers for DH & myself vs the typical one we have in the past when ordering any ticket media. Each one had the 1st three letters of our name, the 's', then the number.

Also, i had inquired as to purchasing a voucher for my youngest DS (a college student 'adult' whose legal address is still our home). The CM indicated that we would have to be present to redeem the voucher. Bit of an issue since he was considering a spring break trip sans parents and would need the ticket then. Otherwise, we were told unless he was added to the membership (to obtain his own membership card) he couldn't redeem the voucher.

Lastly, the CM cautioned me to keep the giftcards on hand jik. I know in the past we were instructed to bring the CC used to purchase tix when picking them up at will-call but didn't think you had to bring giftcards along too.

My mother would like to purchase our DVC PAPs for us as a Christmas present. DH and I are members, she is not. Will there be a problem using her credit card online to purchase our vouchers? Would we be better off having them sent to us in this case rather than doing will call? DH and I will be down in Jan.

Thanks!

You should be able to use her credit card to pay for the passes and have the vouchers sent to you. There is a $5 fee for having the vouchers mailed.

Can I buy the PAP with the discount right at the hotel, OKW?

This is very disturbing. I'm guessing & hoping the CM was very wrong. But, my question is....how did he know how much you paid UT? I know they can tell how much WDW sold the ticket to UT for, but how would he know how much you paid UT?

PAP/AP are only available at Guest Relations in the parks or DTD.

Thanks!
You still have to have photo ID. I imagine if you had a bill with your names and your ID you'll be fine. You can explain the new address thing. I would make sure MS has your new address. The only thing that would be an issue is if you are trying to get a FL resident pass.

I have a question... I am due to renew my AP this trip. If I get the PAP deal, it will be a bit cheaper than the regular renewal. I'm not concerned with expiration dates. When it comes next year to renew, do I have to renew the PAP, or can I just renew to the regular one?

The Resorts (hotels) cannot do anything related to any Annual Passes.

You can go to any Park Ticket or Guest Relations window, including water parks, TTC, DTD, or Epcot International Gateway

Is there any benefit to pre-purchasing the discounted PAP before arriving? I assume we would need to visit guest relations to pick up if we pre-purchase so we would be going there anyway. My only concern is the possibility of this promotion ending early (I don't expect but know Disney has the right to do so at any time).

It will be available through Dec. 31. It makes no difference if you do it online, by phone or in person as long as it by the deadline.

Just make sure you have you Blue member card and photo ID with you if doing it in person.

You can upgrade/downgrade at renewal time and pay the current renewal rate for the pass you switch to.

Perfect! This saves us money!

My current pass expires during our trip. Would it behoove us to just renew when we get there, or wait until the day it expires. I don't see an advantage/disadvantage to either option, do yo?

Back from WDW now, but again asking the basic question that we had come up last week:

If you "activate" a ticket (from Undercover Tourist) and then try to upgrade using the bridge process, will Disney honor the current gate price on a UCT ticket that was purchased two or three years ago??
