Annual Passholders out there!
How do you track how many times you've visited the parks throughout the year?
1. Parking stubs? Receipts?
2. How many times have you/family visited the parks in 1 year?
Since we live out of state, out plans are made months ahead of time, we remember the dates because it is usually several days in a row... usually about 3 trips a year (or per pass because we don't usually "renew" we will let it expire and get our APs on the next trip out... in the last five years, the longest we haven't had a pass was 6 months)
total since July 13, 05... 12 days on two separate trips... considering we're approx 460 miles away, that isn't bad!
I take pictures just about every time my lady and I go to the resorts. I have 39 dated folders of pictures from last year (from Jan. 2nd to Dec 31st). I can recall about seven to ten trips without a camara (mostly Jump, Jive, Boggie & Swing Saturday nights). :^)
The dream is a lie, it's the dreaming that's real.
I would say parking stubs... but they dont always give them to you durning the week on the off season. I have 77 stubs from last year... but I dont know how many times I went late on some tuesday and never got a stub.
This was my first year as an AP holder, let alone a Premium. That having been said, I was so excited by about getting to go whenever I wanted I never kept track. For numbers sake, when I renew, I plan on tracking EVERYTHING from free parking, to merch and food discounts.
Once I get a car and have to start making payments, I'm going to ruthlessly track all of my spending, including (especially) at Disneyland, but for now I don't have the foggiest. In the four months that I had my AP before I became a CM, I think I went about a dozen times at least. My journal might give a better indication, but I'm not sure if I blogged about every single visit to the park.
