My husband and I were looking into buying annual passes for 2005. I have a few questions and I hope that you all can help me out! How many days do you have to spend in the parks to make the AP worth it? At $379 - I am thinking 8? Can you buy now and activate later? How long do you have to activate? Do you get discounts on hotel rooms with the AP? Do you get any other discounts with an AP? We live in Jersey and take 3, sometimes 3 trips a year, so I am thinking that the AP would be a good value for us.
