I also am curious about why people would pay full price to go to another park when the same price to get another PH would be about the same... as I mentioned in my post, we have 8 nearly full days in the park including arrival/departure dates. I already planned to go to Legoland (with BOGO tix for all four of us) and the beach another day for 1/2 day. But that is only 1 1/2 days of already planned activities. Which leaves 6.5 park days (we hoped to buy 7 day PH if not 8 in case Legoland isn't a hit with the kiddos). With only 5 days in the park and a more limited budget (we didn't want to go to another park OR buy all new PH tickets either- that's easily over $400 regardless of what we do) we are kind of stuck finding things to do at the hotel or DTD. Not really what we envisioned for a day and a half. I know many people only say 3-4 days is enough, and I would agree for hitting all the biggies. But we had hoped to take things slow, enjoy the pools, and for once NOT go commando all day long. I just don't like all the inconsistent reports- in the same week many report getting denied, others report getting them no problem. It just doesn't make sense and that is where I am frustrated I guess. I am not counting on the extra days but it wouldn't settle well with me to know there could be others in the park at the same time that DID have luck and I didn't (assuming I can't upgrade).
