Buy APs now or wait?

Hello all
We're going to DLP at the beginning of April and I've noticed that I can now buy promopacs APs to redeem before 25th April. Do you think I should buy them now in case they stop selling them/they go up in price? Ideally I'd like to wait until after Christmas (due to cash flow at this time of year!!) but I don't want to miss out. Are they likely to go up in price or stop the offer in the next couple of months? What would you do?
Thanks

They won't go up in price until next March/April which is when Disney increases their prics and the revendeurs follow

They also, if it follows previous seasons, won't stop selling them until a month/month and a half before possible price increase.

I'd say that you would be safe waiting and buying one in Jan but they will be the only ones who know for sure...you could send an email to them and ask

Thanks Carrie, I didn't think of emailing them. Sounds like it should be ok to wait until the new year though, hope we get some Christmas money to put towards them!

Sorry for using this thread but I need some APs soon too.

I need them for March 2013 and would like to buy them via post.

They should be valuable January 2014 also because I want to use them at this time too.

I never heard about the possibility of not selling them at a certain period of time and I´m afraid now that I did not get one.

When should I buy these APs ?

We are talking about buying an AP from a revendeur like Promoparcs or CEM

They discount their AP's and you can get a free under 7's AP at crtain times. You pay a joining fee and then postage.

They send you a ticket that is a temporary AP and you must go to the AP office on your 1st day entry with it in the park.

They don't sell them all year round

If you are buying one direct from DLP by mailorder you can buy one 365 days of the year no pb

I just did this and the whole process took about two weeks. My AP was posted to me by registered post which was an assurance!

Hi I am needing your help too about buying annual passes from Promoparcs. Can anyone tell me what the francilien ones are?
I know we have to register with promoparcs for whatever passes we pick. It says one per family- I am going with my family, my brothers family and my mum and dad- they all have same surname but I have different as I am married- will my family need to pay another membership?

Thanks for your replies
PS We are going on April 3rd
