No. You have to buy the voucher before 12/31/12 and activate it before 12/31/13. So you would not renew the passes you have, you would let those expire 4-1-13 and ACTIVATE the vouchers you purchased at the $399 rate

We will not have enough points to stay as much as we want because we purchased the PAP. Now we are looking at Bonnet Creek for one of our trips.

I'm sorry if this has already been asked here or if it's the wrong place....I purchased the PAP for $399 in October and activated the pass on 12/1/12. I thought that the pass expires one year from activation which would be 12/1/13. If that's the case, why do my passes state they expire 10/7/13. I'm confused....can anyone help?

It depends on what you mean by "purchased the PAP... in October". If you purchased an actual PAP at WDW in October then it was activated at the time you purchased it even if you did not enter a park with it and it expires one year later. If you mean that you purchased a voucher or certificate in October and then exchanged it for a PAP in December, then your expiration date should be one year from the day you picked up the actual PAP.

Someone else reported they got a PAP with an incorrect expiration date. I think they noticed it right away (while still at the ticket window) and were able to have it corrected.

Yes, I ordered the PAP online, received exchange cards in the mail....activated them on Dec 1st at Hollywood Studios. Never checked expiration date. I found the other thread where a couple people were talking about the same problem. I called Guest Services and the CM gave me a phone number for ticketing that can validate and correct the problem. Unfortunately, they aren't open until Monday.

I hope everything gets sorted out. It seems that in some cases, the CM is using the voucher purchase date instead of the date of exchange to set the expiration date. I wonder why the ticketing system doesn't generate the expiration date automatically?

Disney Research wants to know also.

I just got an email asking about my discounted PAP purchase. It asked things like did I think it was a good value, would I purchase again, had I changed my trip plans based on the purchase of the pass, if so, how many extra trips had I planed, where would I stay, on site on points or cash, offsite, with friends, my home, if I had not bought the pass, what type of ticket would I have bought or would I even make an extra trip, was this my first AP purchase, where did I buy it, new or renewal, online, inperson, upgrade form another ticket, where did I first hear of the special pricing.... there were more questions but I thought it interesting.

We are pobably not the typical AP users. We were in Disney 10/12 and upgraded a 5 day ticket from UT because we knew we would come back next year for Food and Wine (only upgraded 2 adults-other family members were not with us and we did a family trip in 8/12) But we may go one additional time in May. Not sure if kids/grandkids will go or not. So we will most likely purchase tickets for that specific trip for them. Which was also a survey question.

I did add in the comment box at the end that based on the information from MyMagic+ and the rumored limiting of fastpasses for AP holders that if I had known there would be a difference between AP and nonAp then it could have influenced my decision to purchase the AP.

I think the price of the PAP was fantastic, especially for us. We used the ticket for 5 days in 10/12, for 5 days in May. and 7 or 8 days in Sept so price per day works out quite well. Even better if you are local and go multiple times.

Since buying the pass, I booked AKV in November to try and hit the International food/ wine and Mvmcp. I was thinking about a trip in Aug too...Then all this thinking, convinced me to go next month. Unfortunately, I did not have enough points for all 3, so we are staying at POP in Feb.

I can't remember if I posted in this thread but we are doing three trips this upcoming year. Two on our own points and one on rented points. I would love to squeeze another trip in July but we shall see!

Can someone tell me if the PAP gives you a discount on any hotel rooms? Is there a site that gives more info on everything that Comes with the admissions. Now that we are planning extra trips, we may need to stay in hotel rooms a few nights to expand our DVC points.

Never mind. I found it on the wdw site. It appears the hotel discounts are sporadic. I'm guessing they usually aren't available near the holidays.

It has not changed my plans but it does benefit me in a good way. We will be there for three days at the start of our cruise in Feb and will be there for 10 days next Christmas. My plan was to use 3 days off of our non expire ticket that we have some days left on it and then get a 10 day park hopper for next Christmas. Instead, we got the Premium annual pass for approx the same price as a 10 day parkhopper and do not have to use three days off of our other ticket while there in Feb. There may even be some golf at Oak trail now also. Very good Perk. Thanks Claire!!!!!

Always the last to know

Oh, how did I miss this offer? Can someone tell me how they found out about the offer? Everytime I am on DCL or at WDW, I stop in the offices and tell them I don't get any email from them.

Members got emails in Sep and it was "news" on the official DVC Members site. If you are not getting emails, something is wrong and you cannot fix it at the WDW DVC kiosks or offices or on the DCL (those are sales division personnel not MS personnel who deal with your membership after you have it). Go on-line to the members site and to your profile to assure you have a correct email in there (after signing in, open "My Membership" tab near top and then click on "My Profile") . Also, try calling member services to report the issue and give it your email.
