    Domestic Parks AP

    I'm sure many of you saw today's In the Parks where Dustysage reported of Disney likely creating a Domestic Parks AP in the near future. What do you think about this? Do you like the idea? What impact if any will this have on DLR? It seems to be a part of the overall DVC strategy and Dusty mentioned it would be targeted at DVC members. How do you think the DVC will affect the future of DLR?

    I have absolutely no interest in going to WDW. I have a slight interest in epcot, but not enough to fly across the country to do it...so no interest for me. Heck, I may not even be renewing my current pass.

    Re: Domestic Parks AP

    I think it's a pretty cool idea, but I would not buy one. First, it's too expensive for me and two, I don't go to WDW anywhere near enough to have use for it. I've been once, and that was years ago.

    Re: Domestic Parks AP

    I have always wondered why it wasn't that way from the start. However, the price quoted is way over my budget. How many days would one have to visit the parks to justify $800.

    Re: Domestic Parks AP

    I like it. We are DVC members and own points at both VGC and BLT. We currently have an AP at DLR, and it would sure make things a little more inexpensive going back to Florida if we had an AP that covered both coasts.

    As far as DVC affecting DLR, if they continue to expand DVC in Anaheim, and with the DCL coming to the west coast on a more permanment basis, I think it will have a positive impact on the cash flow and therefore the improvements being done in California. The local, who (no insult intended) sometime come across as owning the park, may not like it though.

    I'd get one if I planned to visit WDW that year.
    Here are just a few of the key ingredients: dynamite, pole vaulting, laughing gas, choppers - can you see how incredible this is going to be? - hang gliding, come on!

    Re: Domestic Parks AP

    I think the differential between the single-resort AP and the national AP is too high. Therefore, it would really only be worth the price if you were planning to do repeat-visits at each park. Really, that's because the APs for just a single park are probably significantly under-priced (leading to crowds...). You really only have to go to DL about 8 days to break even on a premium AP. After all, season tickets to the opera (with decent seats) will run you about $900; season tickets at a ski resort range from $500-800.

    Re: Domestic Parks AP

    I would buy it depending on price point, of course. We are DVC members and with MC events in DL and flying just a short 2 hours to Florida for weekends, it would come in very handy, but why buy it when I would conceivably buy the 2 APs for each for less?

    Re: Domestic Parks AP

    Yeah, my vote right now is maybe (not an option on the poll). I would buy it depending on the details.
    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...

    I might, it depends on the details. I would also be interested in a all parks pass. Not just US, based parks, but all of them.

    $800 is too high. The right price point would be around $600 IMO.

    Re: Domestic Parks AP

    Had to come out of lurkdom to add my two cents. This will be great for those who already have a DW AP ($619) and want to visit DLR. However, there is no way to justify that cost for those close to DLR who would only be making one or even two trips a year to DW.

    $500 would be breaking point for me - if it hit that then I might find myself going to DW once a year in addition to my DLR trips.

    I just hope they don't start jacking up the DL AP rate - two price increases in six months is a bit much already.

    Re: Domestic Parks AP

    Fishy and I are currently Annual Passholders at both DLR and WDW because we are also DVC members. That's a huge annual expense for us just to then spend nearly all the money we make on the Mouse. Any pass which makes it just a little more convenient and a little cheaper for us is welcome news.
