I’ve seen a few people who have found they can now make 5 park reservations on existing APs, so it does look like that part is working.
That’s the good news.
There are, however, multiple reports of a couple of glitches, inevitably. These are ones I know of:
- If you already have an AP and buy a renewal now, you will not be able to book parks beyond the expiry date of your current AP. Looks like you’ll need to wait until the renewal kicks in before being able to make future plans.
Some reports say Disney told them this is a feature, not a glitch.
That could be a major PITA if your AP expires in the middle of a planned trip.
I really cannot believe they would be so crass as to do that.
- Some people have reported buying a new AP, assigning it to a person and found the expiry date is set to one year from today. Again this can’t be right, it’s always been the case that an AP doesn’t start running until you activate it.
In one case the expiry was set to a random date in February 2022 Which actually makes me think this is a glitch.
Apparently the wait time for Passholder Services is now at about 3 hours.
