This is our first year as pass-holders so excuse me if this is a silly question...

We are headed to the world for Labor Day weekend 8/30-9/2 and currently I have found a "room only" offer for this time period, which is knocking 25% off on Mods (we are looking at POR). Are the AP rates generally better than this discount?? I was thrilled to see it, and can't imagine it getting any better but it sure would be nice

Approximately when will the AP rates be out for this time period? If I book soon (to avoid no availability) and a better rate comes out, can I get my rate adjusted? I have never encountered this issue nor was I ever aware of all these discounts prior to joining the DIS Thanks in advance!

Generally, the AP rates would be 5%-10% better than the GP. A couple of us are waiting with you to see when they'll appear! Last year and the year before it was the second week of July, but I'm hoping they come out sooner this year. They allocate certain rooms for the AP discount, so it wouldn't matter if you already had a room, they can't just apply the discount unless that same room exists under the AP rate.

I would hang on to your room you have now, and then call immediately once we find out the rates are out and see if you can have the deal switched!

I believe that the current AP room rates that go through mid august are 35% off deluxe resorts and 25% off moderate resorts. If they extend the rates through the fall they may leave them the same, but no one knows from what I've read.

The GP extended summer rates are 30% off for deluxe resorts and 20% off moderate resorts, but not all rooms at all resorts are eligible. For example, at AKL, the 30% off only includes standard or pool view rooms, it doesn't include savannah rooms or above from what I was told by a CM. Also, the 30% off only applies to pool and lagoon view rooms at the BC/YC and not to standard or garden rooms according to the same CM that I spoke with. Those were the only two resorts that I inquired about.

I don't know if the AP discounts have the same restrictions.
As well, the discount rate at the Poly and the GF dropped from 30% to 20% when they extended the summer GP discounts, so who know's if the same will happen when/if they extend the AP discounts...

Any word when new AP holders will be able to access the AP website? It's a total downer to spend the money on AP & not be able use the website for the APs!

Thank you! I booked a few minutes ago using the room-only rate deal they have for that time period. Can't wait to see what the AP rate is, any little bit helps!! Now to find my patience....

Help Please!!

I don't know whether or not this is the right place for this question...so here goes...

Next year, I will be travelling to Disney for the Princess Run in Feb and the Everest Run in May.

I am wondering whether or not an annual pass will save me money.

I will be staying onsite for both events. My best guess is 4 nights in Feb with 2 park days; 3 nights in May with 3 park days. May might be a night or 2 longer.

Is it likely to be worth it?

thanks in advance!

I seem to recall reliable folks speculating that today 6/11 the AP rates would come out for September - have they? I can't get on the site (no current AP).

Thanks!

My rule of thumb for an AP to break even is 10 days in the parks. Now if you add in the possible room discount you really have a lot more to consider. Something else to factor into your decision is that Disney will blackout certain dates. Will your dates be blacked out? That's a million dollar question that only time will tell.

Based on the info you provided I would choose a 5-6 day non-expiring hopper ticket & hope for a general public (GP) discount.

When we buy AP's we generally plan 3 weeks over the next 12 months at WDW.
