    You buy your AP at the ticket booth in the entrance plaza. They give you a temporary AP that will get you into the park and can be used in FastPass machines. You can then go to the AP center in the park at your leisure to get your "permanent" AP. (Frankly, I don't know what happens if you don't go at all that day... we've just always toughed out the line.)

    Thanks, Tom. I'm probably going to get my So Cal one when I go later on this month, though. I'd rather eliminate one line on the 17th (cause you know they're going to be nutsoid.)

    I have an annual pass. I'm not blocked out that day.

    No AP on the 17th?......No problem!

    Here is one way to look at it... If you have to pay the extra to get a ticket on July 17, Do you have ANY idea what a cool souvenir having a ticket stamped from that day will be? and who knows, in 10 years it might pay for your AP for the 60th, if you sell it on E-Bay

    I think this is more a bow to practicality than to greed...if all the APs could get in on the 17th, the park would be full before it opened. It's a Sunday in July, which would be busy no matter what. I mean, I'm sure Disney doesn't have a problem with making money off AP holders, but I don't think that's their primary aim in blocking out the day.

    Or just get this "50TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIVE TICKET"

    And it's only $125.00!!

    Don't feel too bad...all regular cast member sign-ins (blue AND silver passes) are blocked out starting the 16th, so if I'm not working, I'll have to either buy my way in or use a bi-annual comp!

    If you are going to have an AP ... you might as well have the Premium...the free parking alone (at $10. a pop) is well worth it! We're going to spend it anyway!!!

    By the way, does anyone actually know what mechandise is "limited edition" and what isn't....I'm not planning to purchase everything...but, I'm thinking if I'm interested in something that is limited, I should focus on that first.... inquiring minds would like to know....

    I just bought a Deluxe pass with parking. I wished about two weeks ago that I had purchased the premium... but now I'm a cast member, and I get better discounts than PAPs!!

    OK... I guess they want paying customers and fat profits but still... it just seems wrong. Turn away your most loyal fans on the most important day? :confused:

    I'll probably pay the upgrade to get in but as a guy who carries a Disneyland card in his back pocket every day, I wish I felt more special.
    I think it's blocked out for the same types of APs every year, not just this one.
