As much as I selfishly love having an AP, it does change the experience as when you see the rides so often they tend to lose their impact. You just go for dinner, to shop, etc. I love it, but is it fundamentally what the park set out to achieve? An audience of extreme regulars that come on average 10 times a year and know the rides by heart? Or count burned out light bulbs? At some point the park changes slowly in our eyes. Does it erode the memories of that first time we expereinced it?
I doubt the park and it's episodic experiences were ever meant to be an every day or weekly experience. I admit that I like the idea of seeing WDW so seldom like once a year or less. Would Walt buy into the AP program? Would he even liked Passports? Isn't it a good thing that we only have one "Birthday" a year? I vote for the return of "special" and bring back tickets..You opine..
