Annual Pass Question!


I am hoping some of the Disney veterans could help me decide on the annual pass. We bought tickets Jan. 2012 (two 10 day Magic Your Way). We ended up having to cancel our trip and I have been looking at going to Disney in 2014 and 2015 and I am wondering... is a upgrade worth it?

Yes. Current value of a ten day base ticket is $318 (plus tax). Cost of an AP is $574. As long as the last day of the second trip will be not more than one year from the first day of the first trip you will obviously save (lots of) money.

You might want to look at the Everything About WDW Tickets locked sticky in the TPA&S Forum. Especially the items bolded in the list below.

Smile Depends how many times you will go.

We have APs but we only live 321 miles away. We go often and we do get our moneys worth. If you do go with the AP make sure you buy the table in wonder land ticket for your food discount. We will be going at Christmas and we also have a meal pkg for that trip. Good Luck
