Default How Long to Get AP Refund after it Disappears from MDE?

Wondering how long it takes to get an AP refund after it disappears from MDE?

Still waiting for mine. Called for the refund on August 9 or 10 and it disappeared from MDE about 2 weeks ago. I originally paid with a credit card and THINK it will be coming as a credit to that same card.

If you already have your refund, and paid by credit card, is that how you received the refund?

TIA!

I called for my refund in May. Aps were gone from MDE in July and I still have no refund.

I should call but I spent a lot of time on the phone today fixing our November trip and had two great CMs so I figure why jinx it.

So I am not alone. That makes me feel a bit better. Hoping the refunds will all come soon.

It always takes longer for companies to give money back than it does to take it! Wonder why that is, LOL!

Yes!! Always amazes me thatís itís pending in seconds, posted the next day, but takes days for a refund to post and I am always annoyed at the ďit can take up to two billing cycles for the refund to appear.Ē

I'm always surprised that merchants still say this. The credit cards/banks post to the account within a couple of days. Been like this for decades.

Any delay is on the merchant side. There is no "multiple billing cycle" delay on the CC side anymore.

Cheers.

While I don't know this, I suspect this is a delay tactic they are using to spread the refunds over time so as not to take one bit hit. But, they want to remove the entitlement from our accounts so they don't get used.

Anyone know if you can use the AP if it still shows on your page?

If you already have your refund, and paid by credit card, is that how you received the refund?

Same timeline as yours, but received a check by mail yesterday for about 1 month's refund (AP expired April 21, 2020). Now waiting for the GOLD renewal to be gone and refunded to my Disney VISA rewards card.
