This link has DAPs and PAPs at the old prices: https://www.giftcardmall.com/m-86-di...nd-resort.aspx
My DH wasnt happy with buying 4 APs right now either until I said look at it this way Christmas is paid for! We gave the girls APs for Christmas last year and they were thrilled. So that is the plan for 2012 too. DH liked having Christmas paid for early, so off I went. :-)
WOW! I am glad I ran out on Sunday and got the AP's from the grocery store....I went in today and all the tickets had been pulled off the shelf!
Closer to the Mouse, than I was before.....
Make sure to check with whoever sells the tickets at your work, there was much better discount on tickets/passes this time then previously.
Another discount I have found is by using memberdeals.com (receive access to site after buying and registering an entertainment book).
I'm new to using the entertainment book. Has anyone used this to buy Disneyland passes? Wondering if the discount is worth it, or is it a hassle to pick up tix at gate etc?
Can I buy way in advance, or have to wait til closer to our travel time. (going in Oct)
I usually buy through getawaytoday.com
I went and looked. I am not familiar with that sight through my Entertainment book, but I have been on a very similar looking site through my (now defunct) border's rewards perks. Make sure you are not buying the Spring special ones at the bottom of the page as they expire this month. The ones at the top are a great price, and you should be just fine buying them now.
We had one trip we had bought the tickets through 2 different sites. Both of which required a stop at the ticket booths for the actual hoppers, confirmation, ID, and CC used to pick them up. This was the year of a Bajillion people in the ticket booth lines for their free Bday promo. And, I knew we wouldn't arrive before lunch time because of another commitment. So, DH and I popped over the night before our first park day ( we arrived late, but the booths are open until park close), about 11:30 PM. We parked in the 15 minute lot on Harbor, ran over through bag check to the open booth on the other side (the Harbor booths were closed), exchanged the vouchers for PHs and were back in the car 20 minutes later.
Thanks for your advice! Going the night before to pick up passes is a great idea. We can be all set and ready to see Mickey early the next morning!
Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming

If your AP expires in August you may still be able to renew at the old price. Count 40 days back from expiration date. If that date is B4 July 1st, you'll be eligible for the pre-increase renewal. You MUST do the renewal sometime from that day to June 30th.
Coming out of lurk..........I was going to state the same thing as Disneyana. If you renew online (or over the phone) before July 1st, you get the old renew rate. This was confirmed by a supervisor online and by me when I renewed our passes Wednesday. So if you are 40 days out by June 30th you are in good shape. The reason is, they don't have the capacity to have two online prices at once. So, that is the 40 days from May 20th date (for all the people who already got their notices in the mail). I hope this helps someone in the coming month or so. : )
For the Getawaytoday.com park hoppers, is there a place you can pick them up at the Grand Californian or DTD? Or do you have to go to the will call near the DL entrance?
Disneyland trip count: 31
WDW trip count: 2
I've read on other boards that people have bought APs from that link and that the expiration date was 12/31/12. Also, there is a "contact us" link at the bottom of that page, so you can call to confirm, if necessary.
