    We might have to rethink renewing our Tables in Wonderland card during this anniversary year. Although the DVC discount still does not apply to alcoholic beverages. Very nice perk!

    Does anyone know if any of these discounts are only applicable for certain meals? It seems that lots of the AP discounts were only applicable for lunch (was that true at R&C, for example?) Have the hours been expanded as well as the amount of the discount?

    There are also many places that were added as a 10% discount for Annual Passholders, in addition to the ones listed at 20%. 72 places in all were improved.

    It also appears that the majority of restaurants formerly listed as M-F only or Lunch only are now valid at anytime.

    This is a nice perk. Does anyone know if this perk is good only for the annual passholder or will it include their guests? The ToW allows up to 10 guests.

    The restaurnt discounts are currently slated to end on September 30, 2016.

    Should that read 2017?

    I wonder if I purchased two vouchers if I would get the 13 months if I redeemed them a year or two later?

    I have a similar question to yours. We bought a "will call"/vouchers, I guess, a few months ago so we could do FP+ selections. However I'll be redeeming them in a few weeks, when the 13 months is in effect. So will I get the full 13 months because I redeemed them during the year, or not, because of the date I purchased the vouchers? Actually, I think that's kind of the opposite of your scenario. But Guy's AP doesn't expire until January-he'd have the same question as you.

    The date has been fixed. Thanks for the heads up.

    We know you’ll want to celebrate our 45th anniversary year in a special way too, so how about with an extra month of magic? Starting tomorrow, Oct. 2, guests who are purchasing a 12-month annual pass will be able to enjoy an extra month. That’s right, 13 months for the price of 12! New passes must be purchased between Oct. 2, 2016 and Jan. 3, 2017. Prices vary depending on the type of pass you select: Weekday Select, Silver, Gold, Platinum or Platinum Plus.
    The above is from the Disney Parks Blog, which is the only place I can find information on the APs. The link to the Passholder website isn't working properly so I couldn't check there. I wouldn't be surprise that will be able to by extra APs. Although it might be cheaper to renew the AP than purchase multiple 13 month ones.

    What is the effective date of an AP? Is it the date you activate the pass at the ticket window or is it the date of purchase? I cannot find this information in writing.
