You will love this holiday! We did this in February. Soooo nice to not need a holiday....after the holiday. We are going again in January for 12 days. We never feel the need to leave the parks.....unless we need a few groceries.

For most dinners we will do Cheesecake Factory because the menu is so varied and tasty!

Will the Starbucks in DL be open by then?

Are the Deluxe Annual Passes Park Hoppers? Would we be able to go from DL to DCA in the same day?

All APs allow access to both parks at any time (as long as its not a blockout day if you have passes with blockouts).

I don't think I'd plan a week for each park but rather more fluid going back and forth. It's so easy (mere moments walking one gate to the other).

This sounds awesome! If you were to buy 5 day hoppers and on the Saturday that is a blockout day... you can do an "upgrade" to the deluxe AP without having to pay the fee for a blockout day! The day you do the upgrade prevents having to pay the fee (I believe it is $40). This is the way my mom and I did it a few years back. We arrived on a Friday, and on Sat. we upgraded to annual passes and didnt have to pay the fee. Saved us $80!

Fantastic! Well the Deluxe passes fit our needs perfectly then!

Thanks!

Whoa. How exactly does the upgrade work? You don't have to pay more than $499-?

Yes, they could definitely do this. However, I'm not sure if the extra day on a trip of that length would be better than getting AP discounts on food etc the whole trip.

Currently, blockout tickets are $70, btw.

You pay the difference from a 5 day hopper to a deluxe AP... so you end up paying what a deluxe AP costs. So, the value of the 5 day hopper goes towards your AP!

I just saw your intenerary though, and I see you just had the blockout days as days off. If you were wishing to go the parks that day as an AP you have to pay the block out fee, so that is why I suggested a 5day hopper and doing an upgrade that day so you could get into the park while avoiding the fee. But, you would have to consider also that those days before getting the AP means missing out on the AP discounts until then. For us it worked great because it was the day after our arrival. Hope you have a wonderful trip!!

I see! So the advantage is that we use our one Magic Morning and then on the last day of our 5 day hopper we upgrade.

So 5 day hoppers are $300- each, then on our fifth day, we can upgrade to Deluxe AP's for only $199- more each?

On their current schedule though, that Saturday would be their 6th day in the park. They would need to give up a park day in the preceding week to make this work. So nothing is really gained other than access to the parks on Saturday. Not an extra park day...

We probably wouldn't even go on that Saturday anyway because we need to rest. I'm thinking the only advantage to the upgrade is getting that Magic Morning (which is on a Thursday if I remember correctly)
