That's why the $399 PAP was such a steal this year!

What is that? Premier AP? You used the DVC discount, right?

Hi TP2-
It was the Premium Annual Pass (for the 4 Parks, Water Parks, and Disney Quest), that DVC was offering at a discount of $300.00 off of each pass, with the requirement that you can only buy them until Dec. 31st of 2012(the offer started on Oct.1st, 2012), and activate them by Dec.of 2013...

Oh...that was a great deal. I was just looking at prices for the YES tickets like we purchased last year. They really increased in price. That secret is out of the bag and they are no longer offering much of a discount.

I read that sometime when I was looking for something else that they had gone up. Everything has gone up for Disney.

I know TP2- it seems like the YES program is "Public Knowledge" now, and alot of families are taking advantage of it ....Im sorry the ticket prices are going up, it began as a great savings, with a fun educational program for the kids.....

I was shocked that the caramel apples are now 10 bucks.
DD had a cow...she was charging her phone in the Dumbo store and I was outside sitting watching people (crazy people) and I told her. She sends back a text...$10 times 80,000 people in MK is $800,000 if everyone just bought one thing the price of an apple.

The new promo too...the magic thingy...I read one on All Ears about how they are going to have new ears...more $$$. Those headbands and ears are expensive...at least I think so.

Everything has gone up a lot over the last couple of years. I agree that $10 is a ton of money for a caramel apple. We really bought no souvenirs in the parks last summer. We did hit the Character Warehouse though and spent a ton. But everything was at least 50% off. If you have a car I do recommend going to the outlets. It was fun and new items are constantly being brought out from the back room.
I remember our first year balloons were $8 each and we have 3 kids. $24 cash for balloons that are annoying to carry around can't be brought home. Never so much crying!

Even better if you buy a ballon at AKL...Mousekeeping takes it because of the animals.

DD never asked about the outlets so I didn't bring it up...with it so close to the holidays before & after shopping I just didn't think it would be worth the time for traffic!!

No, the traffic literally ate the day away. It took forever to find a parking spot because EVERYONE in Florida on vacation goes to the outlets. Totally insane. We probably could have walked there faster from Bonnet Creek. It was literally our only trip that we will go. But the kids had such a great time in the store we had to go back before we went home. Wound up closing the store and the staff was super nice. They are open till 11pm!

It would have been insane then. Traffic on 192 was at a stand still the one morning and our CM friend knew a short cut that took us away from it and back behind even the short cut-short cut road. They have great stuff at the Target and Walmart on 192

The roads are so funny. GPS didn't work. They were like mind altered or something. It was very bizarre. Epcot seemed like eternity away from the hotel and then one night we took the BC bus and were back at the hotel in literally 3 minutes. The buses were on a time schedule so we knew exactly when they left the parking spot. It was crazy. But there are not road signs that tell you how to get anywhere. They tell you the LONG way around everything.

GPS can be really strange. It has taken us to open fields in Dubuque and said there is a Starbucks thereI don't always trust it. I had issues coming back from MI once when we stopped...told me to go the wrong way. Always have to be alert!

Hiya everyone!

OMG ! I am sooooooooooooooooooooo out of the loop. What is the YES program? I didn't get any discounts on our tix. I prefer to pay FULL price like > and get the total disney experience.
MKY & Humphrey > we are working to keep disney afloat. If I start getting those discounts they will close up.

I know > I am still refusing to join DVC. But, I would have to skip a year of going > to get the $$$$ for our down payment. So > as usual I need instant gratification.

No GPS here that's bug's job.

I have never had the disney's apples. They just look toooooo big.

Now, I feel a balloon is definately worth the 10.00. We need it at the CR. The air conditioning works on a motion sensor >>> that is where the balloons come in. Otherwise you wake up sweaty.

Happy Planning!

and I am now in DOUBLE DIGITS 98 days and counting. WOOHOO

mky
