20% PAP merchandise discount being reduced to 10% Jan 1 2013

I've heard this from several reliable sources, but haven't seen it confirmed by Disney. From what I'm hearing DL will still offer 20%, but WDW is going to 10%. I just bought my first Premium Annual Pass and used the 20% discount liberally on my most recent trip. Glad I did! The discount really helped!

I was not pleased to see this at all. We just purchased our PAP for next year. And was looking forward to the 20% off. I almost feel they offered the DVC discount, and knew in advance they would be taking it away. Its just one more way for Disney keep more of our $$. I shouldn't be upset any money off is better than none,

That's really too bad. I'm glad I got to use the 20% on one trip at least. It was great!

We used the 20% off discount on our trip in November and saved so much money! I was looking forward to using it again in February but I guess 10% is better than nothing.

We were really pleased with the discount on our Premium Annual Pass as well and used it a fair bit. I hope this isn't true.

That is disappointing. We really enjoyed that 20 percent discount last trip.
