I had a premium AP for 5 years but went Deluxe this past one. I decided a while back to re-up to a Premium in June; its a lot of money, but for me its worth it. But if I wasn't you can bet I'd cough up the extra $30 for the 17th.
I feel that Deluxe should be blocked out on that day, its already going to be nuts enough. I dont feel that they should complain about it though, they could have always got the better pass and not have block out days.
I guess Disney doesn't want to share the celebration for AP's.
It's not like they're prohibiting you from going. People with deluxe APs know there are blockout days and that if they want to go on those days, they need to buy the blockout pass. Disney isn't excluding APs - premium APs get entry that day.
well im thinking they will reach capacity.. if its a clear day.. I htoguth they woudl reach capacity on /5/5 but it was a rainy looking day so that stopped alot of people.. They didnt block out the 5th sicne it was in the middle of the week.. july 17th s a weekend. so of course its blocked out.. its not like they did it purposely because of the 50th.. deluxe are usually blocked every weekend for summer time..
They dont need deluxe people in the park when the park is going to be filled to capacity. They will make way more money this way and it is the right decision. Just bite the bullet and pay the 30 bucks.
Ehh I was kinda mad to hear that but I guess I didn't really want to deal with the crowds anyway. I might end up paying 30 bucks, I don't know it depends. Is it possible to buy a ticket days in advance?
