    My AP is expiring begining of Oct and I have not gotten anything in the mail to renew.

    Should I call? Can I do it online?

    What if I want to downgrade some and upgrade others?

    Guess I should call in the morning :upsidedow

    Well I looked on the website and the 16 month deal is gone but I can renew our preferred pass for 100 bucks, which seems like a good enough deal, but I could get the kids and DH the power pass, and me the premimum pass...

    I will call tomorrow

    You shouldn't have any problems doing it by phone.

    I'm not sure if this is still current, but renewing the powerpass or the preferred AP are the same price. WHen I had the PP there was no savings renewing, but I could move up to the preferred pass for the same price. If this is still the case, I would just renew all of the preferred passes (and upgrade yours).

    you can downgrade or upgrade by phone.
    have the ap numbers in front of you when you do


    hey homie, i can tell you what i did and that might help you.

    my preferred ap was to expire on october 7th this year.
    i didn't want to wait and renew once i was in orlando so i called to renew it over the phone.

    i called in late august.

    when i called, i was told there was a special going on and if i renewed the pap then, i would receive an additional 3 months on my pass beyond the one year date.

    i renewed and now my pap expires in january 2010.

    total renewal cost was $117.xx.
    price increased march of this year.

    Ok I called...


    I can't down grade to a power pass, just have to outright buy it for $114 (or 149 at the gate)

    To renew the preferred pass for 1 year only (the extra months promo is done :-( boo) is $117

    And to upgrade to a premium from the preferred is $199.95

    I am bummed that the extra month deal is gone... sigh

    I guess I will wait it out antoher week or two and see if some new deal pops up.

    sorry the special is over.
    i was delighted to get an additional free 3 months added to my ap.

    next time around, i won't have to rush and renew during hhn time period.


    if your ap expires and you don't renew, you'll have to rebuy the pap.

    i think there has been a 30 day grace period in past years to renew though.
    don't hold me to that as things have changed with passes recently.

    call and ask the ap hot line if you have that 30 day grace period to renew after it expires. that way it gives you another month to see if any new promos come up.

    on the flyer it stated renew and upgrade up to premiere ap and get one free non peak hhn ticket this year.

    Forgive the question, but do you need an AP for each family member?

    Depends upon what your goal is?

    If you have only one trip planned for a year, but want the AP discounts (hotel, food, souveniers), only one person needs either a Preferred or Premiere Annual Pass, while the others can use the 7 day pass that's available.

    If you have multiple trips planned for a year, but non occur during a blackout period, you can purchase either a Preferred or Premiere Annual Pass for one person, and then the Power Pass for the others. The owner of the Preferred or Premiere Annual Pass will be able to visit year round with discounts. The owners of the Power Pass can only visit during non-blackout dates and are not eligible for discounts.

    If you have multiple trips planned for a year, with at least one trip occuring over a Power Pass blackout dates (holidays and a few weeks during summer), then everyone should have the Preferred Annual Pass.

    I hope this answers your question and isn't confusing!
