I that using this deal would cause the pass to NOT be a real renewal, but to be a new pass. So you would buy it or activate it the day after your old one expires.

That is what they are supposed to do. Their written process is supposed to be to
bridge the old price to the current price. The problems arise when the CMs don't read or comprehend what is part of their jobs.

That's why it is important to know what the total should be, to not wait until the end of the trip, and be prepared to take everything and walk away to try later and/or elsewhere, when/where a better trained/higher reading comprehension skills CM is working.

Can I buy the DVC PAP at BB? I know we could get in just with our blue membership card for the last "to do" at BB this year, but we will need passes for this trip.

Yes. Cheshire Figment has confirmed that the water parks can and do sell/activate APs. I plan to exchange our PAP vouchers for lives passes at Blizzard Beach this summer.

My granddaughter lives with me but has a different last name. Can I purchase annual pass for her? We are DVC members. She is 16.

I just bought the passes last week and bought one for my nephew who lives with me and different last name. They didn't ask any questions. When they asked the names for the passes, I gave all our names, when I got to his and they said same last name, I said no and just gave the name. No questions asked.

I just bought a $500 gift card. I went online to purchase my pass and it's only giving me the option of Disney Rewards Card or Credit Card in the cart. How do I use a gift card? thanks!

I am getting ready to purchase 4 PAP's.

I recently purchased a bunch of $50 gift cards (via the "Target deal") and was wondering if I could use multiple GC's to purchase the PAP? So basically use 9 $50 GC's to cover the $425 total cost of a PAP.

I've read a few posts that you can use only two forms of payment (for example 1 $50 gift card and the rest on a credit card); is this correct?

I have also read that you can call the Gift card phone number and they will combine several gift cards into one; is this correct?

...just trying to figure out my plan of attack and not be wasting phone calls and time...

Thanks for any answers and suggestions!

Evan

You have to call MS to purchase with a gift card.

I tried calling the phone number to have my gift cards combined and they wouldn't do it. I called several times and was always told no. I know I read on the Dis of people who were successful at having them combined but YMMV.

Thanks - I'll call tomorrow. I feel like I'm walking around with $500 cash in my purse, I'm so afraid I'll lose it! I just scanned a copy just in case (already scratched off the pin)!

Otherwise, we were told unless he was added to the membership (to obtain his own membership card) he couldn't redeem the voucher.
If you call another day at another time you are likely to get another answer. When I purchased my PAPs at MK, the CM told me having my son activate his voucher later would not be a problem. I purchased his voucher online and I plan to send a copy of my drivers license with my membership card with him. The back of the voucher has our last name, what more proof can they want?
My sister called to order her DS a PAP today. She spoke with a supervisor who put a note in a file and gave her some confirmation numbers so her son can activate his pass- the supervisor also told her to send a copy of her membership card with him.
I guess we'll see what really happens when the kids get there. But I plan to be a phone call away when my son activates his voucher. I will get on the phone with Guest Services and escalate as high as necessary if there are any issues. After all, the address tied to my member # is the same as on my DS license.

I went to the MK ticket window today to upgrade and I had your notes out checking the cost. The CM did it perfectly, no problems at all. Thanks!

I have a PAP that expires in May. I am going to WDW in a week. Can I buy the DVC PAP voucher From Guest Services, while there to be activated after my current PAP expires? Or does that activate a ticket when I purchase in person?

I am so confused.

You can purchase a voucher (not a pass) next week and activate it before 12/31/13.
