we're going to dw in aug and debating which to buy. i'm at a conferance for 4 days, then 6 days at disney and will buy a 5 day park hopper (i have 1 day left from our last trip). my wife and daughter (12) will have 10 days at disney. should they buy an annual pass ($364), with only a slim chance of returning in less than a year? is this their best value as opposed to a 7 day/4 option park hoppper ($332), or is the no expiration feature of the hoppers a can't be beat detail? thanks for your opinion!
You say the DW & DD will have 10 days at the world. If you buy 7 day passes what to do for the other 3 days.

For only $32 xtra you can have the freedom of doing what you want all 10 days.

If your talking strictly a regular AP vs. a regular park hopper then I would go with the AP. If your talking Park Hopper Plus then there is more to consider. A regular AP does not include the water parks, PI, and Disneyquest. The plus options of the Park Hopper plus can be used for these things (not sure about DQ) thus possibly making it a more attractive option depending on what your wife and daughter plan on doing.
