Your solution would work for me. I'm just confused about wheather it can be done or not.
I am trying to get some clarification, of course the person who would know is on vacation,

Yes that is what we are all thinking, and of course you would have to buy them online or by calling and not in person. If you buy in person they are activated/redeemed immediately.

So the latest you can make this work is buy them before Dec. 31, hold the voucher until Dec. 31, 2013 and it would be good until Dec. 31. 2014.

So we bought reg APs before the price increase. Can we not use them aslong as we want? Do they expire ever? Im thinking of getting two sets for us. use one set this oct and when we go back next oct and activate the second. Would that work? Am I thinking this through right?

I plan to do the same thing. Our current APs expire on 12 31 12. Instead of renewing, I plan to buy two sets of the PAPs. We will use the first set from 12 31 12 until 12 31 13 and the second set from 12 31 13 to 12 31 14.

Help me with the concept of bridging. We arrive 9/22. If I buy a 10 day park hopper for $399 can I exchange the ticket on 10/1 (the last day of the tix) for the PAP essentially for free? And for my kids I would just pay the difference between the 10 day hopper ($380) and the $399 PAP?

Anyway, just wanted to pass that along to anyone else who might be wondering. I wish I had waited just a few more weeks!!!
I am considering the same thing.. only they have my 1,500$ already DOHHH!

Those of you who have purchased APs this summer, you are not alone. I purchased approximately $2000 in APs in June. At least it sounds like they are throwing us a bone by allowing us to "redeem" them before 12/31/13, meaning our current APs would expire and we can then use the deal for the following year. But here's the kicker... we were planning DL/Aulani in Summer 13, and no WDW trip. Now I may have to squeeze in a WDW trip between 6/1/13 and 12/31/13 just because I can purchase tickets at such a discounted price. The logic is wonderful, I know!!! And that is why Disney is Disney! They keep us planning trips we wouldn't have taken but for the offers!

This will be my first real trip to WDW for the Wine and Dine 1/2 marathon in November and we will be spending 10 days in the parks. This offer is only $24 more than a 10 day park hopper and with the discounts would be worth it. We are DL AP holders but I don't know if we will be returning to WDW in 2013 but may in 2014.

If we were to purchase a 2nd voucher to be activated before 12/31/13, do you have to be in the park to activate it, or can you do it from home?

I'm all about details, so is the $399.00 price tax inclusive? or is tax added to that price

This works so well for us, I purchased DH a 6 day ticket from Under Cover Toursit with the plan of upgrading it to renew his DVC AP Oct. 1st. Then my DVC Ap expires Jan. 3, so I can renew this year for this fantastic deal! Wahoo!

Hm... was going to just buy passes next summer and skip a year building our point inventory back up... but I think a better option would be to buy the PAPs for us and bite the bullet and buy more points while booking 2 more stays during the next 11 months. I need a raise...

According to Cheshire Figment (ticket guru) normal upgrade rules apply. So the answer to your question would be yes. Also if you buy the 10day PH from UT you'll save more money. Adult ticket with tax is $380.95 and child ticket with tax is $364.95. According to price bridging - you use the ticket at least once and then upgrade. Or in your case use it for your trip and then upgrade at the end - but before all the days are used up. You will get credit for the gate price of the ticket and then pay the difference from that.

adult UT $380.95 / adult gate $399.38 / DVC-PAP $424.94 (with tax) / pay the difference of $24 to upgrade = savings of $18

child UT $364.95 / child gate $380 / DVC-PAP $424.94 (with tax) / pay the difference of $45 to upgrade = savings of $15

I thought the rules were for new only and not upgrades. Is there something about the UT tickets that makes it a different situation?

You are still buying a NEW PAP but you can upgrade from a current MYW ticket. As long as you do it in the alloted time frame. This is how the normal upgrades work and Cheshire Figment said "normal upgrade rules apply". You CANNOT however upgrade an existing AP into the special priced PAP - as several people have been reporting after speaking to member services.
