That is UPGRADING a pass, not ACTIVATING a new pass. The activate a new pass the poster will have to be there in person.

It has not been allowed as a phone transaction.

Since that original post from drusba was referring to UPGRADING and that was what I was responding to was the fact that I WAS able to UPGRADE my pass over the phone just as drusba said could not be done, I was refuting what he/she said based on my experience of being able to UPGRADE just as we were speaking of. No mention of ACTIVATING was being referred to in drusba nor in my post that I saw.

We bought ours earlier this month. Unfortunately, our last AP expired on 12/4 for DW and I, but our trip didn't expire until 12/9! SO . . . we bought new PAP's for DW and I and a PAP voucher for DS6 for our summer trip in 2013 (his current AP goes until Jan). I'll only get about 14 days out of the PAP, which still seems like a good use of the pass. DW has a meeting near WDW in March, so she may get a couple more days. DS6 will only get 10 days on the PAP. Hopefully we will hit the water parks a couple of days next summer, so it still should be worth it.

I am still considering scheduling our 2014 trip early enough in the summer to get one more trip out of DS6's AP; but I'll have to play with the math a little more to know for sure if that is the thing to do, or if we should just schedule a late summer 2014 trip, buy 3 AP's, and get two 10 day trips out of them between 2014 and mid-summer 2015.

But the cost of these is *less* than the DVC price for the normal DVC AP. Assuming you will still be going, still be getting APs for the admission (which is the ONLY thing I buy an AP for...everything else is the cherry on top), aren't you costing yourself more money in the long run?

But maybe you've just decided to go with tickets. We looked at the tickets we would need for the trip, and they were *so close* to the cost of this special that we realized we would be silly to not take advantage. And instead of the *one* trip, we'd get at least another one inside the 366 days!

We just bought our 2 also. Just in the nick of time. I too looked at the price of regular tickets and realized it was silly not to get the pass. I'm trying to get 3 trips out of it. We might also upgrade to Premiere with these, but we'll see how the math works out by then. We're not activating these until NEXT Dec!!

Our APs expired in December, so we bought the PAPs. We chose not to buy ahead for next year's renewal.

Bought two onsite last month for MVMCP adults-only trip. Ordered vouchers for the kids last week.

With EE 5K in May, I'll get four trips out of mine in the year, DH will get three and the kids will get an extended summer trip (10 days). These APs cost the same as comparable 5-day passes for next summer. Crazy not to do it in our case!

Got mine on Friday for marathon weekend. Think it is only about $80 more than the 5 day ticket through Undercover Tourist. Hopefully I will get in another trip before end of the year.
