Finally sat down to put together the final details of our trip next month. We became first time AP holders in Sept. of last year. Our plan all along for this Oct. had been to get park hoppers w/early entry and then upgrade again after we used our EE. So, looking online, an AP is running $269 if I buy today. My renewal = $239. So, $30 per AP, we have 5. Plus I was thinking of when we could upgrade, and it would be the last day of our trip if we were doing the EE, which means, no food discounts, and with 2 character meals for the 5 of us, that is significant. Needless to say, I'm upgrading my AP's tonight! They expire in 7 days. The cost vs. the EE or extending by 30 days for next year just wasn't worth it to us.
