Reduced PAP offer for DVC members

I was just wondering if we think that DVC will offer the very generous $399 PAP offer again later this year like last year? Anybody care to speculate? I hope so....

If I had to bet, I would say no. The last AP promo that they had was a 15 month renewal. It was a one time deal.

I agree. I doubt we see it again. There has been 3 offers regarding APs over the last few years. One was the coupons AP holders got to share with others to get 10% off of new APs (and AP holders got $25 for every AP purchased -- I racked up $350 in gift cards on that one). Then there was the 15 month AP. And lastly the reduced PAP. I've been an AP holder for 20 years and those are the only specials I remember. Of course they could do what Universal did a few years ago and offer a BOGO. When I first purchased my Universal AP it was buy a year and get 2 years use. Now that was a great offer. Doubt we ever see that one at Disney.

Omg that is a great deal re BOGO re Universal. I would die of pixie dust overload if Disney offered that. I saw they were offering 2 years for the price of one at Seaworld not long back. I regret not buying one now!

Currently, you can switch between WDW annual pass types at renewal time and pay what ever the renewal rate is for the different pass type at the time you renew.

No because I think the offer was something that Claire worked really hard to get for us and she is gone.

Yes that's what I feared. I hope there was no correlation lol.

I doubt it.

Promotions like that are most effective when they are not predictable. They want the impulse buy from individuals who believe it's a fabulous once-in-a-lifetime offer.

Offer the same deal two years in a row and by the 3rd year, Disney starts losing money from people who delay their purchases waiting for the offer to reappear. Then when the discount isn't offered, people end up spending the money elsewhere.

WDW dug this hole for itself in terms of the fall "free dining" promos. It has been offered so many years in a row that people delay booking their trips until the promo is announced.

I would be happy if they did a payment plan for AP's. When you are buying 4 or 5 at a time...that adds up.

I think they will offer it again and here is why. Some of us bought annual passes before the offer but more of us bought PAPs in Nov-Dec 2012. That said folks who would have purchased 10 day tickets now have PAPs and will visit at least twice this year as opposed to once per year. They will eat at Disney restaurants and spend $$$ twice now and if they don't have enough point adonitis may strike or they will use their PAPs to book a significantly discounted room. I heard from a CM that the promotion had much more uptake than they had forecast and that we should expect to see it again. I hope I'm right!

I agree. We got a lot of extra (new) perks when she took over. Haven't seen any good ones yet this year.

The new guy was head of ABD, right? They're offering "guaranteed" day 1 pricing on ABDs for DVC members or something. I'm sorry but that's not a real perk. Realistically speaking, what is the % of the DVC population who will even take an ABD. The pricing on those trips are pretty ridiculous.

Back to your point---hope our new DVC guy doesn't just focus on ABD and we get some better ones.
