Welp, It’s That Special Time of Year… Again!

What do you think about this annual practice?  Is the increase of AP events keeping you coming back for more?  What about those of you with Premiere passes?  $130 is quite the hike but you’re getting unlimited access to the parks for a whole year.

The Disney Parks seem to also continuously push back their 20%-off deals for AP’s and are increasing the frequency and availability for AP exclusive events.  Disney seems to stand by their value and they have been feverishly adding new areas and exciting attractions.  It seems to be a Catch-22 as well as a probable solution to the saturated AP market.  Luckily they have that amazing 0% interest monthly payment plan to keep it manageable.

Will you be renewing your pass this next year or might you consider downgrading or even not renewing?  The new prices take effect tomorrow, June 2, 2013.  Might be worth a trip to the park just to renew early!
