This is a really dumb question BUT does it expire a year after the date of first use? So if I activate it on Nov 9th 2012 then it will expire Nov 9, 2013 right? And you can park hop with it? Sounds like a great deal to me

Actually it expires one year plus one day from the day you purchase it (if purchased at WDW), pick it up at "will call" (if you purchase in advance and do not opt to have a voucher mailed to you) or the day you exchange the voucher for it (if you purchase in advance and have a voucher mailed to you). The day of first use is not relevant. It is considered activated on the date of purchase/date of voucher exchange/date of pick up at will call even if you don't use the AP to enter a park until days/weeks/months later.

Your example is correct: if you purchase onsite/exchange a voucher/pick up at will call on Nov 9, 2012, it is good through the end of the day on Nov 9, 2013. Yes you can park hop with an AP.

I have the same question. We just purchased an AP for our daughter in August and would love to just upgrade it to a PAP.

Couldn't you buy it for next year? Get the voucher. Maybe the upgrade. I just wouldn't assume it's passing me by!

We had plans of purchasing regular AP's on Sept 26 (will be in parks 9/26-9/28). We're on the Fantasy 9/29-10/6 and have plans to be back in the parks 10/6-10/9. Any chance I will be able to "switch" to a Premium AP from the regular AP I was planning on buy on Sept 26 ?

I was all set to purchase a Premier Pass for both parks when I get there next month since I currently have plans to visit DL 1 or 2 times within the next year also. Now I'll have to figure out if it will be worth just paying for Parkhoppers at DL instead and getting the Premium Pass for WDW. I guess I could just get the Premium for now and figure out whether or not to upgrade to Premier when I actually go to DL.

AP Discount

This is much cheaper than my FL resi discount. Mine expire the end of Jan so I think I'll be buying mine on Dec 31st.

That is my question too, in this case does redeemed mean the same as activated?

Depends upon whether Disney will allow any sort of complimentary upgrades after Oct 1. We will probably need to wait for October 1 to arrive or someone like Cheshire Figment to comment.

I do know that back in 2005 when the DVC AP discount was first introduced, they did allow guests to upgrade. Essentially if you had a non-discounted Annual Pass you could trade it in for a DVC discounted PREMIUM Annual Pass at no cost.

The fine print of this DVC PAP deal doesn't say anything about the discount not applying to "previously purchased tickets" or anything along those lines. So there is still hope.

I bought regular AP's online a few weeks ago and am going to activate them in November. I called Member Services to see if I can "upgrade" these to the Premium and get this deal and was told I could not.
If anyone else finds out something different I would love to know!

It would be nice to see a decent discount for Disneyland.

Just called DVC....there will be NO switching/upgrading to the Premium if you've already purchased your AP. So looks like Sea World....Universal will be getting my business Sept 26-29. Just an FYI folks

Not sure Cheshire always has the current info on what affects DVC, he shared some incorrect info about the member discount for Halloween and Christmas parties recently, just saying.

Think hope is gone
I just called MS. No switching or upgrades from what they just told me 5 min ago...(see my above post). And we were planning on purchasing an AP a mere 5 days prior to the sale. Now we are waiting until Oct 6 and will give other area attractions our business Sept 26-29. Oh well
