In mid-February my family’s annual passes expired, but we had a great year in the parks, packing in 67 different trips. I created a blog and wrote a pretty detailed trip report for each visit throughout the year, complete with photos and video. I thought I’d share it here in case anyone is interested.
Our Disneyland Diary | Chronicling the Kiely Family's Adventures at the Disneyland Resort
Having visited so frequently during that year, toward the end I saw my kids beginning to take the parks for granted. I think it will be good for us to have some time away, restoring the “magic” in the process. That’s not to say we don’t already miss it, but we got Sea World Fun Cards for 2013 and will probably return to Disneyland as APs again sometime in 2014.
For me, the issue is that Disneyland APs are so expensive, the only way to justify a purchase is to use them like crazy, at least on my budget. So that’s what we did, creating countless memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives. I was extremely impressed by all of the AP exclusive benefits (especially over the last couple months) and look forward to staying in touch with the happenings at the parks here on MiceChat while we’re away.
