  • [Question] Does an AP renewed online expire before mailed?

    Hi y'all,

    I got my premium Annual Passport renewed online about two weeks ago. Last week, on Wednesday (12/23), I went to Disneyland with my old ticket. I got into DCA without any issues, bought a couple of gifts with my AP discount--no problem. Got into Disneyland Park--no problem. But, about 6 PM, I was buying a gift at Pooh Corner when the CM told me that my passport had become "invalid" and was not available for the discount. I pointed out that the expiration date had not yet passed, so she called her manager. It took about 15 minutes of talking and overriding the computer before I could get the darn 20% discount. Just to see if it was just that shop or if it was my passport, I bought something at the Emporium a couple hours later--same problem. After more talking and overriding, I got the discount.

    Has anyone else experienced this problem before? It was frustrating that my passport had been deactivated by Disney when I had yet to receive my new card. Thanks!

    EDIT: I probably worded the title wrong...oh well, it won't let me change it...

      ^^ Correct.

      If you've already paid online and the new pass hasn't arrived yet, you'll need to speak with a gate attendant to gain entry. Present your old pass and explain that you have already renewed online but the pass hasn't arrived yet. They'll have you step aside for a moment while a lead or supervisor checks your status and then lets you in.

        Same thing happened to me. I renewed online and hadn't gotten my new pass yet. I just went to the gates and told them that I just renewed. They just overrided it and I went in, no problem at all. The only problem I had was buying food or merchandise. They had to call a manager to get my new Pass bar code to be able to use it. It took quite a while.

          They did that to us a couple of years back. Tickets were in the mail. Passes were good for another week, but when we got to the turnstiles, they said invalid passes.
          We had to get a supervisor to let us in.
          I understand why they do it, so that people won't try and cheat the system, but it was kind of annoying.
          That was at least a couple of years back.
          You'd think that they would have it figured out by now.
