View Full Version : Annual Pass questions

03-11-2010, 04:48 PM
Want to get your thoughts on what to do............I have annual passes with an expiration of 2/28/10. I have passes for DH and DW and my oldest of 3 children (DD5). Here's the planned trips over the next year...........

May 2010 4 days - DH and DD3 (doesn't currently have a ticket)

November 2010 7 days - Entire family (DH, DW, DD5, DD3, DD1)

November 2011 7 days and Disney Dream! - Entire Family

Currently I have Annual passes that are due to be renewed do I:

1) Buy tickets for DH and DD3 for 4 days in May and then get Annual passes for everyone in November

2) Renew DH's annual pass now (2/28/10 through 2/27/11) and buy an annual pass for DD3 in May (5/10 through 5/11) and Buy New annual passes for DW and DD5 in November (11/10 through 11/11).

Thoughts?? Do I also factor in the savings I would get buy having the annual passes?? Thanks for your help

Not that it helps your Nov 2011 trip -- but renewing now should get a 15-month window not the normal 12 month window.

I think I would just pay for the tickets for May and do AP's in Nov.

Will you be going late in NOV 10 and early in NOV 11?

Anytime you plan on spending more than 10 days in the parks the AP is the better value. The additional 3 months added onto current renewals is more icing on the cake. I'm also assuming your using a DVC discount to purchase your passes.
