We've had Premiere AP's for the past year and did enjoy the 20% off.

But the real fiscal danger of an AP is that you can easily justify more visits. After all, your admission is already paid for so all you have to do is find a cheap flight and stretch your points.

To answer your original question, YES, the PAP is making us go broke! We were not planning a WDW trip in 2013 due to our planned trip to DL/Aulani in June. We had planned to return to WDW in June 2014. But now with the PAP discount, we wanted to take advantage of getting an annual pass that would also last through our June 2014 trip. But we have to activate the passes prior to Dec 31, 2013. SO.... we booked a F&W trip for Oct 2013, mainly to get our passes and activate them!!! (We've also gone to F&W the past two years and love traveling that time of year). I'd like to think of myself as a relatively smart person, but I will fully acknowledge the marketing of this PAP discount is getting us to book a trip that I don't think we would have taken!!! But I'm not complaining.... we now get vacation withdrawal if we aren't heading to FL every 2-3 months! So I don't know what we'd do if we had to wait 18+ months to be back at WDW. The kids have already been chomping at the bit to ride the new Test Track (whenever that will open!).

Yes it is going to make me broke We already have APs that expire in June, 2013 and were not planning on going back until sometime in 2014.

Well now I NEED to buy these passes and will have to spend extra planning a trip in OCT,2013 just to activate them.

But I love Disney math ----> spend alot to save a litle

Yup, it will cost us more! we are doing a family trip in 2 treehouses in Feb and that was all the Disney we had planned for the year since those 2 THs took up our points! but with PAP costing little more than a 3 day park ticket I was looking at AND DS turning 3 in the summer, I want to squeeze in another trip with him "free" and to get use out of the PAP. of course that will mean airfare, lodging, and misc for another trip, but I am so excited!
I am glad other people understand!
