Has Disney ever done something like this before? We are not DVC members yet but will be mid next year. Just checking to see if this has ever happened before?

A few years ago they had a special promotion where a current Passholder could provide (a limited number of) referrals for others to get APs. The new APs were sold at a 10% discount and at the end of the promotion the current Passholders received a $25 Gift Card for each AP sold using their referrals.

Another recent promotion was AP renewals during a certain period would be renewed for 15 months instead of the normal 12, at the regular renewal price.

Renewing this $399 PAP in 2014

Has anyone asked this? The CM at the ticket window at the TTC told me in Sept that you renew and pay the price paid on the original AP - so if you buy an AP and keep renewing, you are always paying the original price, not the current price. Is that really how it works, and would that work to keep getting this price on the PAP? It would be nice, but I'm not betting on it!

I think there's some confusion. What they probably meant that if you are renewing an AP, you would pay the same $399 DVC promo price as if you were buying a new AP. You don't keep the same price next year when renewing unless they extend the promo.

Well, no. I wasn't told that for the $399 deal. I was told that b/c we let our AP's expire from 2011-2012. So he said that if we renewed then we would get the 2011 price, not the 2012 price - just regular AP, not PAP. Was wondering if the same principal would apply for the PAP upon renewal of it.

I looked at the sticky. Thanks! Very helpful. Not sure I understand at which rate this promotional PAP would renew at? Can you clarify? Thanks! For example, I buy the deal at the end of this month. Validate in Sept 2013. when I renew that in Sept 2014, what price will I pay?

They could very well get the info sooner than that. I'd phone MS before the end of the year and speak to the department which handles administration of new memberships (in other words, not the person who helps with reservations and ticket sales) to see if they have your info yet. Make sure you have your contract number and all other info provided from the closing from your broker and closing office.

You'll pay the 2014 renewal price, whatever that is. I'd count on a price increase before then. There hasn't been any announcement yet about the extension of the DVC PAP deal.

As long as it is within the renewal period (30 days on either side of the expiration date), you may upgrade or downgrade to any level of AP you are entitled to purchase and you will get the renewal rate that is in effect at that time.

OK, so not $399 unless they extend the offer. Likely higher, like slightly lower then the regular price for the PAP?

I am a little confused from reading all these post and need some help from you passport experts.

I am a DVC member and currently have a Premier Passport that expires at the end of February 2013. I live near DLR and plan on visiting WDW at least four times next year.
  • Should I just purchase the CA Premium Passport and wait until my visit to WDW to upgrade?
  • Can I take advantage of this DVC member discount but if I do will I lose two months of my existing passport since it expires in Feb?
  • If I take advantage of this discount and want to upgrade to the Premier do I have to pay the entire difference and thus the discount dosen't apply?

Any other suggestions/recommendations?

Thanks in advance.

You can buy a voucher for a DVC Premium AP prior to 31 Dec and then activate it in 2013.

My understanding is there is no bridging, so you would have to pay the difference between what you paid for the DVC premium AP and what the current premier AP costs at the time of your upgrade.
