I think this is really sad. I think Walt would be distressed if he knew that they are soon going to make it SO expensive that a lot of people won't be able to afford it. I know for me I had a Deluxe AP since 06 and then it just got to be so expensive that I let it expire a year ago. Then when they came out with the monthly payments I decided to get a premiere for this year because we were making 3 trips. I am GLAD I did and glad that we will GET those trips because they literally are making it to where we will not be able to even afford parkhoppers anymore.

I am on a very limited income and with the economy am lucky to have a job at all but have not had a raise in 10 years. My ex husband not only had no raises but took a 10/hr pay CUT and that is when he is not laid off. To me the economy has not rebounded at all and yet EVERYTHING is going up. Gas, airfare, everything. I honestly don't see how people can afford to do anything. I guess like a lot of stuff only the rich will be able to go pretty soon. So sad!

Again - a big THANK YOU to this thread! I am going with a group of friends in July - 11 people total and 2 have passes. So between the 9 PH tickets we have to buy, we saved about $360! Plus I am going to buy my premium voucher since mine expires in Aug and I will be going back in Sept. Another $150 saved!!

I am, and am thinking about just buying passes right now and canceling the 3 day park hoppers I already bought. Does anyone know how much it costs to cancel ticket purchases through getawaytoday?

I have a trip already planned and booked for September that has 6-day Park Hoppers. I had already planned on upgrading to APs while I was there, so I'm trying to figure out the best course of action for me. If I pay $379 now for a Deluxe Pass voucher today and activate it in September, I would have a full year until September 2013 to use it. If I wait to upgrade the 6-Day Park Hopper that I have with my current package when I get there in September, I'd be paying a total of $469 for the same access to the park, through September 2013.

For some reason, probably because it's early in the morning and I haven't had coffee yet, I'm having trouble determining the best course of action. If I was considering upgrading our tickets in September to APs, it doesn't make any financial sense to wait, right? I should jump on it today before the prices go up and then downgrade my September vacation package to hotel only?

Boo! I just posted a (tactful, but not-so-flattering) comment on the Disney blog. It's awaiting moderation. We'll see..

Looks like maybe this will finally be the price increase that shrinks the number of AP holders (starting with me).

AP expires July 2012

I just got off the phone with guest services for AP. I asked if I can renew my pass before the prices go up. I checked online and it is too early to renew. Lily (cast member) stated that as long as I renew before July 1st I will be able to lock in the current price without the increase.

You can renew your AP 40 days prior to expiring.

So did I, but it was rejected, I have tried rewording it and reposting, we'll see if that makes it through.

Is it legal to buy AP vouchers now but not activate them until our trip which won't be until next year?

I just got off the phone with a CM and she said that if I buy the AP the expiration date will not go into affect until first day of entry using them. The voucher has to be used by the end of this year to avoid paying the difference.
