    Annual Pass Buying

    Well, I'm buying an Annual Pass in about a week. (sorry guys)

    Does anyone know if it's better off buying them online or at the ticket booth? I'm trying to decide. Please help!

    I'm not sure if you can buy them online. Can you?

    You're online now, and you're not at the ticket booth now. AP doesn't become effective until you get to the park.

    You'll still have to get processed and brainwashed and addicted, which is a very small procedure....


    OK, just the processed part (the other two are already done!), which is your next decision: either in DCA or in DL. The DL line at the "bank" is usually pretty busy, all day. I've heard otherwise at the DCA, if it will still be there in a week.

    No need to apologize. You are merely purchasing a product/service that is too good to pass up. Not your fault they offer it, and that it serves to slowly ruin the actual product. "They" won't be around later, so why should "they" care?

    I'd rather just buy them at the resort.
    Can they do everything right there? Can I just get the voucher and go in?

    Re: Annual Pass Buying

    Whether you buy them at the supermarket or at the ticket booth, you still have to go through the processing facility (now at the Plaza Pavillion) to get your actual pass.

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    If Costco still sells them, buy it at Costco. Then upgrade to whatever version you want when you go for the first time. I saved $10 and got a $50 gift card that way.

    Here is my .02, I would recommend buying a 3 day (or more pass) and using the "magic morning" then taking the 3 day pass to DCA AP processing center and upgrading to your AP.

    You'll be in line a long time too, since APs are now processed at the Plaza Pavilion lol The old "bank" is now the Disney Gallery.
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
