Glad it worked out for you!

Yeah kind of funny we got to the guest relations booth and they had changed the price of the TIW form 100 to 125.00. They still honored the discount for either DVC or PAP holder can't remember. Just kind of funny when even there printed material has the old price on it and there telling you it is wrong. Don't get me wrong I'm not complaining. My worst day down there is better than any day at work. Its just funny when things change so fast they can't keep up with it. The other thing I found kind of funny was the paper PAP. All of our family that had the plastic park hopper passes used the new entrance gateways but we had to go through the old ones. Seems like which ticket would you want more durable the one for 4 days or the one for year. Just an observation.

That "Paper PAP" is actually made of Tyvek which is plastic. They are very durable. We've been passholders for many years and never have had any problems with our 'paper' tickets.

Thanks erionm. Just looked like paper to me. Glad to hear its not a problem. Now if I can just keep up with them They did also tell us the passes would work in the new gates in June. Don't know if they are changing the pass or upgrading the gates.

They will have to replace the passes as they are converting the entrances to have RFID readers. The current stock used for APs, PAPs and MYW tickets does not have RFID chips embedded in them. Only KTTW cards with tickets attached can currently use the new RFID readers at the Theme Parks.

We just upgraded our passes before year-end, and bought the vouchers for next year too. Everything went very smoothly and I was pretty happy with the transaction.

I was getting DD to hold out on her souvenir purchases, however, and unfortunately did not know about the change in the merchandise discount. The 20 per cent was a nice perk, and I didn't realize it was temporary. Ah well.

As it turned out, we used the pass yesterday to sample DisneyQuest, which we might not have done had we not had the PAP. Add in a couple of planned water park visits in the summer, and we will have realized good value for the pass cost.

Can the PAP be "renewed" as a regular AP for $385 when it expires?

You can downgrade at renewal time and keep the renewal pricing.

So happy they offered this discount. I was able to sneak in at the last moment on 12/31 and purchase the tickets for my 2 DD's and I. This made is a definite that my kids and I will go this year as it was up in the air if we could afford the tickets. I couldn't believe that the PAP were cheaper than the AP's! The discount means we'll be able to go in 2013 and then again in 2014 before they expire and it'll only have cost us $200 each year! LOVE IT.
