I have been living abroad and plan on visiting both Disneyland and WDW on an extended trip back to the States. I am considering the Premier Pass for this. However, it seems I can’t purchase this pass till I am at one of the parks in person. So, I have a few questions about the timing of this:
If I want to stay at Disney hotels and I want to know what AP offers are available at both Disneyland and WDW, how can I learn this ahead of time? (I would obviously need to book a hotel before the day I arrive for vacation.) Accessing AP offers info via Disney’s site requires I have an AP on my Disney online account.
If I did succeed in finding AP hotel offers, could I book now WITHOUT AN AP but be guaranteed the deal when I check in with a brand-spanking-new AP at check-in?
Finally, I have a Disney debit card. Can I combine the Disney debit discount with the AP discount on merchandise?
Thank you very much for any advise you can offer!
