Not everyone is in a position to take advantage of the various APs that exist.
I have only two complaints about the AP program, and specifically the monthly payment plan.
1) I consider if a gross injustice that because I live 575 miles away, I pay full price for entry into the park, while the person standing next to me in line could easily have paid less than $5 to get in.
2) APs, and monthly payment APs in particular, have flooded the park with way more people than it can handle. The net result is that when I (and every other full-price paying guest) visit, far more of my time is spent waiting in lines that didn't exist prior to the recent explosion of APs.
Again, I have nothing whatsoever against the people who take advantage of the APs (If I could, I most certainly would), my beef is with the way the program is administered, and to an even greater degree, the unbridled greed of those who are in charge of it.
