Ahhh....thank you Tim !!!
The numbers in my head are swirling and swirling since I found the news of this perk today. It's more real this way......

The issue is whether the tickets you already bought will expire if not picked up by a certain date.
True, that will be the question, can tickets be left in Will Call for that length of time.

We have the Premier and we get 20% in DL and WDW. The premium AP for WDW gets 20% in WDW as well as the Premier which is considered the same as the premium.

Funny when they first came out though the looks from the cashiers because they didn't know what the pass was and I had to explain it to them, but now they all recognize it.

Time to start sending emails and letters to Claire complaining about the lack of upgrade. Enough squeaky wheels and I think they avoid licensing their clients.

Wow, that is great news since we plan to get APs in December! I was planning to by MYW tickets at AAA and upgrade them at WDW - I can still do that and get the special price, right, as long as the MYW ticket cost is less than $399?

Bummer, we arrive on 9-28 and leave on the 5th and have a trip in June when we will do water parks. I wish they'd offer this purchase to members that have reservations starting before the 1st and ending after the 1st. It's a good deal.

What kind of pass will you have on the 28th? Couldn't you upgrade that pass on the 1st?

I sent to member services to start. If I can ferret out some executive emails, then will post them to send too...Just be respectful... I thanked them for the wonderful offer but said it felt like a slap n the face we couldn't upgrade a voucher that hadn't been redeemed yet for this offer. Heck, I'll even eat the cost difference since the AP voucher costs more. Should be a no brainier for them.... Don't refund te price difference, just upgrade them. They make more money and don't anger guests. Vs creating ill will. I think they come around... Kind of like Apple when the cut the prices on the first iPhone... They practiced customer satisfaction by taking care of those who had recently bought the phone before the drop.

Just a note, the official email addresses are firstname.lastname@disney.com. Now I'm sure Claire's assistance reads them, but worth a shot anyway.

We were going to get regular ap's but I was just reading about upgrades and bridging so I think a UT park Hopper purchase would work. Can anybody confirm that?

According to Cheshire Figment "nomal upgrade rules apply". So MYW tix can be upgraded to the DVC-PAP.
http://disboards.com/showthread.php?t=2991734
You just can't upgrade APs into the new PAPs -according to MS.

I've been doing some math on upgrading, was planning on getting regular DVC-AP anyways but this saves more money. Here is the best option for UT upgrade that I came up with.

UT 5Day&WP = $311.95(with tax)
after first use can be upgraded to
DVC-PAP = $424.94(with tax)
get credit for Gate 5Day&WP = $346.13(with tax)
pay the difference of (DVC-PAP - Gate 5Day&WP) = $78.81
Total price (UT + upgrade difference) = $390.76
Savings of $34

Plus if you sign up for Mousesavers newsletter (before the 15th of the month) you can get a few more dollars off the ticket.
