What is the difference in price between an annual pass and a 7 day park hopper? What are the benefits of an annual pass? We live in NS and we do try to go down yearly and I am wondering if there are any benefits to have an annual pass? We are going in October of 2003 to see Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. I can hardly wait!! We have decided to decorate the house in Disney stuff, so I can't wait to go shopping in Disney Marketplace.
