So I just upgraded my AP to a PAP from Deluxe. I figure eh, for an extra $70 it'll be worth it, plus I have a few Saturday "dates" coming up when I'll use it. The extra discounts never hurt either
One of the most positive things about having the AP I had in the year since I bought it was that it allowed me to meet some amazing people from MiceChat that I truly love hanging out with. Getting another AP for another year will only strengthen my friendships with these peeps and hopefully I'll meet more new people as well to keep the friendship ball rolling.
Something else I have a little more tolerance for are lines, and there's been plenty of long ones what with the 50th and Spaces re-opening etc. It helps when you have a gaggle of people to converse with that's for sure, but I seem to be a little less bothered with lines of people waiting for attractions or food or whatever. It is what it is, right? Make the best of it and deal.
One of the negatives I've discovered in myself is that I have less tolerance for tourists. And really, it's stupid of me to feel this way I know, because tourists are the bread and butter that make up the Disneyland experience. Especially first timers who become enchanted with the "Disney" way of doing things. I need to remember that as I walk behind a hoard of out of towners trying to find their way from NOS to Tomorrowland, stopping willy nilly in front of me looking at their maps. Have a little patience ONUT!!
What are all you APer's positive and negative experiences with having an annual passport?
