My wife and I are traveling to the park June 27-29 on 3-day hoppers (bought them today before the increase!). We are then planning another 3-day trip for December with our 2 boys. We are thinking about upgrading our hoppers to the deluxe AP on the last day. Since that Saturday the 29th is a blackout day, we are going to wait until then to do the upgrade so we can still get in the park. My question is: Is the upgrade worth it for what will essentially be 6 days in the park or should I just get other tickets later?
Are the discounts worth it? We are hoping to stay in the PP. What are the AP rates like in the first week of December? I had originally planned to book with AAA, but trying to decide if the AP discount will be better. Also, do enough retail and food locations offer discounts to make it valuable.
Thank you all for your help. I don't post too often, but you are always so helpful.
