    Question Comming back after all these years

    I had an annual pass since 1994, back when they were still affordable and not too common for people to have. Ever since then I had a pass year after year until 2004. It's been 2 years since I've owned a pass and visited a few times while the 50th stuff was going on. Now, thanks to all the overtime I've been working my fiance and I have enough money to go out and get us a pair of passes. We lives only ten minutes from the park and are excited to be able to go to the park on a regular basis.

    Ever since I joined Micechat a while back I have read many threads about a variety of topics, from killer strollers to flash photography freaks. It appears that things have changed quite a bit in the past 2 years. Good changes? I dont know yet. Bad changes? Possibly.

    My question is this. Do any of you who have passes and have had them for a long time now feel that Disneyland isn't quite as special as it used to be or could be? Do you renew your passes just out of habit? Do some of you not plan on renewing and if so, why not?

    For me...No, Disneyland doesnt feel as special as it was when i went once a year as a kid. Now i try to go every 2 weeks. I go for the landscaping now.

    Definately not the same as it used to be. I have had a pass since I was 5 and I dont think it is just a habit to renew it. I really like to see the progress Disney makes and changing Disneyland is what keeps it fresh and fun (not all the time though). I will continue to renew my pass no matter what happens to the park.

    While I live in San Diego and therefore don't make it to the park as often as some folks here, I do make it there at least twice a month, and sometimes as many as five visits in a month.

    And even though I've seen a fair amount of the stuff behind the magic, it's still just as special as it ever was. Sometimes even more so.

    Re: Comming back after all these years

    What made it special for me again was being able to bring my two daughters there. I have a 2 year old and an 8 month old. Just to see my oldest get so excited brings me back to how I used to feel when I was a kid. We have PAPs and live about 20 miles away but with work and a busy schedule, we only get to make it out once or twice a month.
    It's definitely different than it used to be. I won't say better or worse, just different. Either because we're older or because it will just never be the same. Times change........
