Well for those of us who love to complain or give our thought’s of how great DVC is, BUT is without. ie… not having free dining and resort, views, and so on and so forth. The excellent minds of DVC administration have provided, yet another, and probably best “Member Perk” ever…. If you are a DVC member this is a no brainer!
Claire Bilby, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Disney Vacation Club, announced on the Disney Vacation Club member website via video, exciting new member perks coming soon.
From October 1 through December 31, 2012, Members will be able to purchase a Walt Disney World Premium Annual Pass for just $399 (that’s a savings of $300 off the regular price!)*. Premium Annual Passholders enjoy unlimited admission to four Theme Parks, a year’s worth of unlimited access to Disney’s Blizzard Beach Water Park and Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Parks, DisneyQuest Indoor Interactive Theme Park, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, Disney’s Oak Trail Golf Course (greens fees only) and more!
Insider’s Tip: A Premium Annual Pass certificate is not activated as a ticket until it is used the first time. So, if you’ve already purchased an Annual Pass, you can still take advantage of this offer by purchasing it now (between Oct. 1 and Dec. 31, 2012), but waiting to activate it until after your current pass has expired. Passes purchased on this offer must be redeemed by December 31, 2013.
October 1 will also mark the launch of a new ongoing Member perk – 10% off merchandise** at all Disney owned and operated merchandise locations at Parks and Resorts at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, Disney’s Vero Beach Resort, Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort and Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, Ko Olina, Hawai’i.
This has more fiduciary advantages than any other DVC perk I have ever seen presented. If you are a current passholder, You could buy the premium annual pass certificate now, but not have to activate it until 12/31/13…..which means it would be good until 12/31/14.
Thank you Claire, and the DVC and Walt Disney Cast members and friends!
PS, a very special thanks to dear friends and cast members, Bob & Terry Schmitt, for giving me the heads up on this perk!
