I joined AAA recently to get a better rate at ASSp. I saved $237 on our June 7 night stay (2 adjoining rooms). But I called CRO today and asked what I could get if I had an AP and I could save $395. Of course, I would have to buy the AP for another $295 (DVC discount price) in addition to the AAA membership (I joined for myself, DH and DS for $128). We are leaving on Friday to be in WDW for 5 nights at OKW, and then we will be in WDW for 7 nights in June at ASSp and then for 5 more nights at OKW. I already have hoppers and MYW tickets, but they could always be used for future trips, if I don't use mine. I don't know whether it is worth the money to buy an AP to get the discount on the ASSp, but I am thinking that if I figure in the 4 hoppers (old and I don't know what I paid for them) for this spring trip and the 7 day (no hopping, expiry) MYW ticket (cost of $203) that I won't have to use if I have an AP this year, it might be worth the extra money---in the long run. This is so confusing. I'm also worried about getting the AP and then not being able to use it (weather, sickness) on any particular day of our trips. What would you do?
