It seems that there are many people here that are like myself and have decided to opt out of the AP program even thought they remain huge Disneyland fans. But I was wondering what their reasons were. Here are my 3 main reasons
1. Burnout- yep I just got burnt out on the park. I was a cast member from 85-88, an AP holder from 89-00 and again from 02-04, visiting at least once a week and I just got tired of the place (I know that's considered heresy here)
2. Ease of Visiting- once the old parking lot was torn out for DCA it became much more of an ordeal to just park and get in. Most summer nights pre-DCA you usually could park within 100 yards of the main gate and just stroll in, now it's a long walk or dealing with the parking structure and the trams.
3. Crowds- enough said, this has been debated a million times here. But let's face it, the park is usually packed now and that causes more trash, dirty restrooms etc.
So that's why I'm not an AP holder anymore, and I was always a premium or premium type passholder the entire time I had a pass. I still visit occasionally, usually around the holidays, but I just by a one day ticket. So if you didn't renew your pass, Why not?
