Thanks so much. That is want I was hoping to hear

Can I activate PAP before AP expires?

I will purchase a DVC PAP December 6, 2012.

Can I purchase another DVC PAP voucher at the same time which would be activated November 2013? ( A few days before the first pass expires)

I would have two annual passes active at the same time, but with different end dates?

Is that possible?

I think if you buy it in person, it's an activated PAP. If you order online, you can get a voucher, which can be mailed to you. That one you can hold to activate in 2013.

That's my understanding.

Ok...I have an UT pass, 8 day expiring hopper. I had planned to use that in Dec. Usually have a DVC AP but wasn't going to go this Dec and then changed my mind.
So....I figured I would now use my ph to get into MK on my first day, then upgrade it to the discounted DVC PAP. But, can I also then buy a discounted PAP online, at DVC?? For later use next year??? Or can you do it just once, per person??

Yes you can. Order a voucher and just exchange it for the AP by 12/31/13.

DVC discounted PAP upgrade from MYW tickets

Will they deduct 1 day from my ticket or give me the full value?

If I don't don't activate them will they give me the same $amt that I paid UT or the value that Disney was charging at that time?
Would appreciate any clarification!
Thank you for your feedback. But I just want to be clear- So if I activate my ticket at the gate and then upgrade to a PAP they will not deduct the cost of one day fro the value of 7 day MYW ticket? Will I get the full credit of $290 vs one day less ? If that is true that is a great deal. Should I do the transaction on the same day?

They never do that. Your AP is backdated to the date you first used the ticket and you are credited its full gate value.

When you buy one of these, make sure it has the word "cert" or "certificate" on the ticket. Not very many people realize we have this capability.
I know this is an old thread but I have a question related to this post. Can I upgrade existing unused ticket media to a DVC PAP Cert? Our regular APs run out in 12/29 and I don't want to renew them. We will be at WDW in Dec until the passes expire. I have unused 2-day passes and I would like to apply the value of those passes to a PAP Cert that I won't activate until March 2013. Can I do that?

Should be able to as long as you buy it before December 31.

But if you upgrade the tickets to PAP while at Disney World, doesn't that mean you would get an activated pass right then and there and NOT a voucher that you could activate at a later date?

Well, that was my question . We know from Cheshire Figment's post that (A) "certificates" are available at WDW Customer Relations windows and the AP certificates are the same as AP vouchers. We also know that (B) we can upgrade tickets (used and unused) to regular APs that are activated when they are issued. So, if A and B can both be done, can I combine them to upgrade a ticket to an DVC PAP certificate?

I based my answer on CF's previous statement that they could issue a voucher at the window at the parks. And I already knew that you could use existing tickets towards an AP upgrade (or PAP or DVC etc. upgrade).

My answer (which I have not proven out myself) was that you should be able to use your tickets towards the purchase of a DVC PAP voucher to be activated next year.

I have just rechecked the general ticketing/upgrade rules and have seen nothing which talks about upgrading an unused ticket to an AP Certificate. And this is nothing that would either allow or forbid the action.

If a person were to come to my window I would be able to do it. However I would have to use the original price that Disney Ticket Operations sold the ticket for, which might be less than what you paid for the ticket.
