That has no bearing on whether APs would be good for or not. Does the AP cost less than separate tickets for your planned trips? That would be the simplest approach to it.

Afterthought: you are a DVC and are saying you don't know if you will go back. I must be missing something in the thread, because that part makes no sense.
I think she means she is wondering if she'd go back within the year the PAP was good for.



I think a lot of people will be jumping at getting these 399. PAPs who might not need them. Disney will probably seel a lot more PAPs(APs) then normal!

We need to make the decision ourselves--I've had an AP for the last 10+ years. Got a trip planned in January but am I going back within the year? I'd be hoping so but at the moment, I do not have anything planned. I need to figure it all out very soon!

Good luck everyone!

ETA: After seeing the length of my stay in January, there is no question that the deal DVC is offering for the PAP is the way to go for us.

There is the "rule of 4" but that applies to booking outside of DVC resorts and means that if you are in the last 4 months of your UY you cannot both book and stay outside of DVC (with a couple of exceptions). But that's at the end of your UY. So in your case if it was anytime from Aug 1st to Nov 30th and you decided you really wanted to go on a cruise on points during those same 4 months you would be restricted and unable to do it. But if you booked the cruise before July 31st you could.

If your stay in April is long enough and you think you might want to take advantage of the water parks and the 20% shopping discount it still might be advantageous to buy. Going a second time in Dec would probably make it a no brainer.

It is confusing for sure. But your husband will think you are a genius when you tell him how you much money you can save by buying the AP's and taking your next vacation before they expire. Of course Disney will suck the money you saved out of your pocket in some other way, they are genius' too, but you don't have to tell him that.

I wasn't trying to make you feel stupid - which is why I said I might have missed something in the thread since I didn't understand.

I was just over posting on a tread about TIW card and realized that the PAP offer also allows you to get the TIW card for $75 another savings of $25...

So I called last week when I read this thread. I have 1 pass that I purchased in May and haven't used and wanted to upgrade that one and buy 3 more. Member services said I could do that but needed to that through Ticket services. After being on hold with them for over 30 minutes and then another 30 on the phone, they said I need to have DVC permission and then they said DVC had to do it.

So I call back in this morning and SURPRISE, they have no record of my phone call at all and said since I didn't have permission prior that I can't do it. First guy said what I purchased originally cant be higher than this price, then the Supervisor said thats not true and it had to be handled at Guest relations at the park. He transferred me to Guest Relations who picked up and then proceeded to put me on hold for 25 minutes and counting.

If they can do it in person, then they should be able to do it over the phone....

You can also get this price with a regular AP.

The first report of successfully upgrading was just a few posts above yours. Perhaps MS cannot do an upgrade, but it seems that the ticketing CMs at the parks CAN. (If you will be at WDW during the promotion period 10/1 to 12/31.)

Sent from my iPad using DISBoards App, please excuse any typos.

See Puffkin's post just below yours. In person she successfully upgraded a MYW pass.

I've never heard of anyone being able to upgrade passes over the phone though - you had me scratching my head wondering if it would work.
Phone orders seem to be strictly for new pass sales and AP renewals.

Waiting to hear if anyone is able to upgrade an existing (renewed) AP to the new PAP (cost was less when purchased).

We upgraded one of our 6 day MYW park hoppers to a DVC PAP this AM at Epcot. They didn't back date it to date of first use. It expires on 10/1/13.

We bought 4 day hoppers with the water park option on our first day which was Saturday. We went to AK this morning and upgraded with zero issues. Took about 5 minutes and the CM said we won the prize as her first DVC upgrade of the day. She seemed pretty prepared for this promotion. I then popped over to Guest Services for our TIW card. Our PAP's were back dated to September 29th. So glad we could utilize this deal as we were going to buy PAPs anyways. It would have been great if we could have done it all right away on Saturday, but it really wasn't too big of a deal today!
