Annual Passes discount

Well our family Xmas present is bought. The 300 off annual pass was too good to pass up. We then moved our next vacation to Oct 24th to Nov 2nd 2013. Then possibly returning in Summer of 2014. Tree house villa is booked we are on our way.....Wait we just got back. This is a good thing.

I'm at WDW now and am using the Premium AP bought on the special discount. The BEST perk is the 20% shopping discount. I've used it for everything except meals. Even get 20% off groceries and things at the resort store. No minimum. The only place so far that wouldn't take it is Japan.

I am hoping the 20% stays for 2013. I know even the 10% added up on our last trip!

We were at Epcot yesterday and purchased the vouchers for the DVC PAP (our current AP's expire in a month). What a great deal!

Just bought ours today! Merry Christmas to us (it's our joint Christmas gift). We won't "activate" them until Dec of 2013 and then get 2 trips (24 days) on them - Dec 2013 and fall of 2014.

You can buy the passes now and then just don't activate them till March! It made more sense for us to buy the passes and go twice next year!

I just saw on another board they are doing away with the 20% discount in 2013. I hope this a rumor. But I figured DVC has flooded the annual passes for next year with the discount. Thus disney wants to keep more of our $$. So I guess we will have to live with the 10%
