Aaagh! Family's passes expire soon, and I was planning to skip renewal since we're taking a few months off before I repurchase new passes in November. Now, I don't know what to do, since the preview dates may not work anyway.

We have Platinum APs so will be looking for the email. We were lucky enough to preview Pandora when it opened. We are booked at Poly in Sep but if we get preview passes, we will make another trip or add on dates depending on when it is. Previews have very few people in the park. At Pandora there were only 200 in a 4 hour window. We walked on FOP 5 times in a row...

Yup we are in and will be stalking the emails!

This is so disappointing as a Gold AP holder. Will have to relay on the Extra Extra Magic Hours I guess.

I'd love to be able to go to preview for SW:GE and I'd make an extra trip in Aug for it, but we are also Gold AP. My AP expires early Sept, so even if I was tempted to upgrade I most definitely won't upgrade a pass that will have less than 2 weeks before it expires. <sigh>

While annoying for SW:GE Previews, the AP Passholder increase discussion should really have its own thread, so I've moved those posts here:

http://www.mouseowners.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=137236

Please discuss general AP price increases there and strictly keep AP discussion here to SW:GE preview issues.

For those who attended a preview of Pandora, do you remember how close the preview was to the actual opening day? I am trying to make an educated guess as to when the SW:GE preview might be.

Pandora opened May 27, 2017 and our "preview" was May 18th.

I went to the Pandora preview with a Cash DVC ressie and it was 5/14 (Mother's day) aprox 2 weeks before opening. I tired to make that guess too, which would make it when we are in Aulani.

We are there in September but will happily add another getaway if we get preview passes!
