I purchased a platinum AP from Costco way back in 2019 for $912 when they raised rates to $1100-$1200. I’m sure I got the tip from this board that Costco was still selling at old rate! At that time I was planning a 10 day vacation in 2020 for my family (that of course never happened) and had done the math: with Memory Maker, 10% TS dining discount and park hopper my break even was just shy of this one trip. Since I was sure I’d be back in the area for work or a separate universal trip, it was an easy decision to purchase.
Now I’m replanning that trip for March 2023. With price increases, my break even is hurdled with $20 to spare on this one trip alone…EXCEPT It looks like the memory maker has now been removed as an AP benefit!
Anyone know if they are honoring the benefit at time purchased, or do I now need to purchase $99 on top of the AP?
I’d still be within $75 of break even on one trip alone but now I’m not entirely sure I’ll get back to Orlando after activating…so there’s that.
I’m also wondering how Day 1 will work with an evening Epcot planned after we fly in. Will I be stacking G+ and ILLs (maybe guardians?) for everybody else and then only after I arrive snd activate my AP and only then be able to G+ me?
