Just upgraded my 4 day hopper to the DVC PAP at AK this morning with no issues. It's going to be fun year!

Good for folks who are going to get a massively reduced PAP!!!!

I bought a regular AP back in August, and while I would LOVE to 'upgrade' to a PAP, I'm fine with it. I don't 'need' a PAP as I have a non expire 10 day bought about 6 years ago that includes water parks so....I'm good on that front.

Now if only DVC would give us the perk of monthly AP payments...

When I saw this deal and thought there was a chance for an upgrade, I told my husband to get ready to add an extra trip to focus on the water parks since we have never been. Also, how much more would we justify in souvenirs because we could save 20%, lol? We don't buy APs every year, only when scheduling works, so I'm not interested in buying a voucher for next year. I have no problem with the fact that I paid more than the promotion amount. I have a problem with not being allowed to convert my more expensive pass for the remaining term because I paid more. I find the spin they are using about how I can buy a new voucher and hold it until next year pretty annoying. I just spent $1800 on these passes and am not jumping to throw down more money at Christmas to get the deal. I guess we'll just miss this one. I'm sure it will save us money in the long run, because once my kids get to try the water parks I suspect we will always be buying those tickets...

Is there any way to find out how much we paid for our current annual passes? Thanks!

Just upgraded our regular DVC AP's to the new DVC PAP's at DHS this morning. Upgraded mine and DH's AP's that expire in December, and DS's AP that expires in June. Cost us $44 to upgrade the 3 passes. It was very easy, and the cast member knew exactly what to do. Took 5 minutes. FYI, these were DVC AP renewals which cost $385, which is less than the $399 price of the new DVC PAP's.

Thinking of getting a PAP for my wife and was wondering if I can pick it up for her using my member card and her ID or must she be present? Was thinking of running over before dinner to International Gateway...

I just got a regular AP back in August... Wish I could upgrade somehow... Oh well...

We have bought the regular Annual pass with DVC pricing, and each person had to be there with ID.

I'm sitting on 3 tickets I cannot convert. Not thrilled either and still trying to decide what I will do as well.

Im sp happy for you but irritated with member services because they told me that this was not possible. I wasted an hour today. being transferred all around with no success. Then I read that is possible..

They told me today that AP are not transferable and can't be upgraded. They also said they don't have the system to do the upgrade. If anyone is able to do this over the phone, ease let me know. They transferred me to ticket fulfillment and they said it was doc's job. So frustrating!

I'm sure this has to be done in person, at the parks, between today and Dec 31st. I would not have expected to be able to do the upgrade over the phone. We are lucky that we are here during the promotion time - our next trip starts January 1st, so we would have missed out also.

I just don't believe as sophisticated a company as wdw can't upgrade a ticket over the phone.
