Fingers crossed this is what they do! We bought APs because we were going in May 2020, November 2020, and December 2020 to January 2021. We moved May to mid-August. Obviously we haven’t activated them yet.
We are in the same boat. Unactivated AP's for my family and date based tickets for my inlaws. Thankfully we trusted our gut and rescheduled our July 2-11 trip back in April and pushed it off to November. I think with having a resort reservation and tickets linked in our account it should give us a good position when they roll out the reservation system.
