Deciding on AP or not

I'm not sure where the appropriate place would be to post this, but I just need a little help figuring out if getting an Annual Pass will be worthwhile for us.

We live in the Northeast so we aren't exactly close to WDW. We are going there this May and have a 7 night 8 day package w/parkhoppers. My thinking on the annual passes is that if we do one more trip next April with another 7-8 days we already save enough to make it worth buying. I think the minimum would be about 13-14 days to start saving? Then with the extra savings on dining, shopping, potentially resort savings, etc. it should work out in our favor.

Park tickets really don't get any cheaper than the current offers right? I guess that's what I'm trying to figure out. Even with the Spring offer we aren't saving much more than maybe $100-$150 for four of us.

For those who have an AP do you find yourself using the additional perks and savings? Even if you aren't local? Or was it not as great a savings as you hoped?

I'm secretly hoping once we have the passes that DH will agree to a possible long weekend trip this fall/winter around one of the holidays. I know he gets tired of too much Disney because he grew up going there all the time, but I think if we are ever going to do multiple trips this is the year to do it since our twins will be free until their 3rd birthday in July 2014. I may even have enough free hotel nights off site to make airfare and food our only real expense that sort of trip.

Oh, that's another question. How advanced is the notice for special events?

Also, if we decided to buy them today, but we don't go to Disney until May are they active from the moment we bought them or the moment we start using them like with regular tickets.

Thanks for any input advice! After a long and hard year and a half with my 18 month old twins I'm really pushing to live it up this next year and enjoy some special time with my family. What better way than more Disney time to do that, right?!
