I believe all the non-phone policies have fraud prevention as their intent. For the same reason they wont tell you about leftover ticket days on the phone. Of course, it's not a technology problem. It's a policy they have chosen to implement.

Looking at doing this purchase. I have unused 4 day hoppers that I purchased from UT before the last price increase (a little over $1100). I order the voucher for the DVC PAP online. Go to a ticket window after using 1 day on the hoppers then upgrade for this PAP? Is the difference just refunded to a credit card? If I order the vouchers online, I have to pay upfront for the passes. So, I've already paid out over $1600 for 4 PAPs plus the initial $1100 for the 4 day hoppers. When I upgrade, do they just refund my credit card for the $1100 for the hoppers?

No refunds are given for the upgrade. I believe in your case as long as you'll be at Disney during the Oct-Dec time frame you would not need to order vouchers online, just go to the ticketing center and upgrade your UT hoppers to PAP's. The start date of the PAP will be the first date you used your PH ticket.

You will only be able to upgrade the hoppers to the PAP at the parks between now and 12/31/2012. And that is the only way to upgrade (i.e. use the value of the hoppers toward the cost of the PAP). If you purchase the PAP voucher over the phone, you will not be refunded the difference in cost between what you paid for the PAP and the hoppers.

Thanks for the replies. We won't be able to take advantage of this then since we won't be going to WDW before the end of this year.

You can still buy the discounted pass and use it for a trip next year. You'll get a voucher or will call email that you can use to pick up the APs on a 2013 trip. You just have to purchase the APs before Dec 31 of this year.

I have a question that may have been answered already - I bought DVC APs (not renewals) in November 2011 (so expire November 2012). We are going back in a couple weeks. I am not renewing because we aren't going back until November 2013 so I will buy the vouchers and hold to get this deal.

My question involves upgrading the current APs. I can't remember what I paid for them, but it was before the price increase. 1 - Is there a way to see what I paid for these, and 2 - Can I upgrade them?

If they were new APs purchased just before the price increase then you paid OVER the magic $399 and officialy because of that you won't be able to upgrade. (Gee Pay More and Receive Less!!!!) (If they were renewals you would have been able to upgrade! (Someone explain that logic!!!!)

Now, on the DVC board there is one poster who got a CM to uprade his new vouchers which cost MORE then the magic $399 price to the PAP, but I think it's going to be luck of the CM

I don't know why folks are not complaining to DVC. I sent an email and the response was basically "this is the first complaint we have had" Really? Are the rest of you just whining on here, becasue that's nto really effective.... so go on the website and send them a comment!

You must be a new Disney fan. Have you noticed how that IT shop works? "sophisticated" is not exactly the word I would use to describe it! Probably should give you an insite into the overall operations of Disney!

I was able to do that yesterday. Didn't expect too, but he said let me check, and gave me the PAP and refunded me the $42 difference for toe passes. I was shocked. I told him I figured I couldn't do it but he did it anyway. I was very happy and have saved a lot of $$ with the 20% discount already!

probably because when you bought your ticket or voucher it says "no refunds" and they have to issue a refund to do the upgrade.

Also, even if you old, the clock would start the day you upgrade, so it wouldn't help you if ou weren't going to be back or a year. That's what I learned.
