So then they don't have longer tickets, like 10 days, and they don't have no-expiration, so those of us who like to stay longer are FORCED to buy APs, and then there are 3 more AP holders, and then.....

Whoever is thinking of these ticket schemes, while "blaming" AP holders for overcrowding and lines and not buying things etc, is NOT thinking it through.

But I dont get people who buy Premium passes but then only go a few times a year anyway?
Going enough times is easy if you live close. If you don't, you get hotel, air, transportation to and from two airports, food costs, tips, souvenirs, and all the other little things. It *adds up*.

We haven't gotten a Premium, since we've been able to schedule around the Deluxe's blackout dates (having a blackout on our travel day isn't a hardship), but the ONLY thing we think of when buying an AP is "how many trips do we have planned, and if you add up the tickets for those trips is it more or less than getting an AP". That's IT. Anything else is a bonus.




Mary, I got the email you sent out earlier today, and appreciated it!

We're still "safe" because we have APs (me through early December, hubby and son through early Feb), but after that...we might be in Darph's world of "I'm just not sure it's worth THAT amount of money". Glad we didn't buy DVC for Disneyland!
