    I remember last year right about this time DVC members were able to purchase the premium annual passes for even a greater discount than normal. Has anyone heard anything about them offering it again or something similar this year? Thanks!

    Lots of speculation and wishful thinking, but nothing official.

    My postcard came in the mail, and they are offering $110 off for the premium passport, and(I think) $90 for the regular one.

    Does it say whether you can purchase a voucher with the discount?

    That is the same discount that they have always had for the passes. I am still holding out hope for the special DVC premium pass discount. I missed it last year because we were doing a Disney cruise but I hope to have it this year. I know it is really far fetched wishful thinking but who knows they may surprise us with the DVC discount magic. Since I am not going untiL March I can wait a little bit still.

    Is that an additional discount? The current AP/PAP member discount for new passes is $146 off.

    If you go to the locked sticky Everything About WDW Tickets in the TPA&S Forum, especially Post #18-A, you can get all ticket prices, including all types of APs. An easy way to get to the sticky is by clicking on the link in my signature. The ticket sticky is your friend!

    Yeah i got that postcard but that was because i am a PAP holder and it was 110 off PAP or 90 off AP renewal prices.

    Last year i bought the PAP for $399 each. I should have bought 3 more at that time too becasue they needed to be activated by 12-31-13 and i would have done that

    I hope they bring this back because my PAP's expire 12/7:sad2:

    I checked the DVC website, DVC renewals are $90 off for PAP, $70 off for AP. So it's a little more off if $110/$90 is off regular. I think if they are sending out post cards with this offer, that kills any big promo like last year.

    I have not received a postcard. Is the extra discount only off renewals?

    My postcard was only for renewals. I, too, would have loved another special like last year's $399 special, but it's not to be.

    Bummer. I was hoping to hear Disney would do the amazing deal from last year. My husband and I just bought DVC this year and it would have been nice to score a deal like that. On the bright side, this is the first year we can get a DVC discount on annual passes. :thumbsup2

    The postcard is sent out when it's time for you to renew your current PAP. It's the usual reminder (which used to come as a letter in an envelope) about your Pass renewal window. The text on the card states:
    The fine print states:
    There is no mention anywhere that I have a DVC PAP. Based on the PAP prices in Cheshire Figment's ticket thread, $110 is what you would save on a Regular PAP renewal, not the DVC PAP renewal. If it was a special discounted renewal ($110 savings instead of the usual $90) we would have heard about it. I think it's just a mistake on Disney's part, failing to customize the pricing for DVC members.

    PAP: $729
    PAP Renewal: $619
    Savings: $110

    DVC PAP: $584
    DVC PAP Renewal: $494
    Savings: $90

    The prices above are pre-tax. You actually save a bit more after tax because you are taxed on the lower price.
