Having a tough time wrapping my brain around this. If I already bought an 8 day ticket, can I use the ticket for 1 day, then go to the ticket window and upgrade it to the PAP at the $399 price?

We usually only go once a year, but the benefits might be worth it......especially since the 8 day park hopper was like $375.

And, in theory, if we bought 2 apiece, one for this year and the other for next year?

Premium annual pass gets us a better discount on merchandise:

Premium Annual Passholders are eligible to receive a 20% discount and all other Annual Passholders are eligible to receive a 10% discount on select merchandise purchases at Walt Disney World Resort owned and operated merchandise locations

Yes to the first question. Unsure how you could buy two apiece as an upgrade. You would only have one upgrade with your tickets. The other would be a new purchase.

Not meaning to look a gift horse in the mouth BUT... anyone else wishing they would offer something on regular AP's? Such as a deeper discount or the 15 months that was offered a few years ago?

Don't get me wrong, anytime our perks are increased instead of taken away I am grateful & I know that you can't please all the people all of the time but as someone who doesn't utilize the Premium features I feel left out Oh well.

I usually never benefit from these short term perks, but I have decided to buy a voucher in October, November and December. We just bought our PAP's but this price is too good to not get in on!

Refunds are rare. I think they won't give them to you. (Tickets are non refundable) That's why one of the UT ticket games is to buy the ticket price just BELOW the AP price.

Also, on the other DVC board here folks are reporting that No you can't take your current regular AP and upgrade to a premium with this deal. It's new purchases only So at least one poster on here is going to be upset "knowing that we could have had 6 Premiums for $300+ less than the regular AP's we purchased and not able to go to the water parks, etc. "

That's the breaks sometimes.

[QUOTE="dvcmom72"]I recently bought the regular APs which we are going to activate in November. I just called Member Services to see if I could "upgrade" on 10/1 to the Premium and get this deal and was told I could not. I can buy them and hold them to use next year, which I will consider doing but that's still a whole lot of money to spend while I'm trying to save for THIS trip. Anyway, just wanted to pass that along to anyone else who might be wondering. I wish I had waited just a few more weeks!!![/QUOTE


It sounds like we can upgrade, right?

Think of this offer as an extra $26 off your DVC AP, plus extra added benefits that no other AP gets - like access to the Waterparks, DQ, WWOS, and Oak Trail

I am a fairly intelligent person with a math background (CPA) and I am thoroughly confused, lol

So, if I understand this correctly, can I buy a park hopper ticket on Undercover Tourist, use it for the first 2 days (9/29 and 9/30) and then be able to apply that value to the purchase of the PAP on 10/1?????

Wow this is great....we get the PAP for the price of an AP renewal...right...my AP expires Jan 26,1213 , so I buy this PAP between Oct 1 and Dec 31...for 399 and get a voucher to use/activate in 1213 (usually go in March) but if decided to Wait until Oct could hold the voucher until then. Finally something for us.something to cheer about... can you buy these online? or do you have to call MS?

Question: Does anyone know what happens if you don't activate in on December 31st 2013?

Would it automatically be activated good through Dec,2014 or are we out of luck. We usually go for 2 weeks and always get an AP but I would love to have the water parks added. We already have an AP that is good for our next few trips so I am thinking way out into 2014.

This is almost exactly what I want to do. I want to use my UT ticket on 9/30/12.
Then upgrade it to a PAP on 10/1/12. I am hoping this will work, as the starting date of the new PAP would be pushed back into September. I wonder if that would be allowed.

No, based on the above it does not sound like you can upgrade. The poster you quoted was told "no"

Just bought DVC AP last month for our September trip. Always a day late & dollar short.
