    Time to re-new AP's + 1 new

    My Wife and I currently have PAP's and it's time for us to renew. My oldest daughter is turning 3 in May so it's time for her to get her first pass also. I'd like to renew with PAP's again but I'm wondering if it's worth it for all of us to get it. I know I'll get it for me for the free parking and discounts when we go, but since we don't go as much as I'd like, (maybe 2 times a month), then I don't know if I should get the PAP's or DAP's for my Wife and daughter.

    Any opinions???

    And what's the difference in the Special and Standard passes now?
    Is the Special the one with Mickey and Goofy in their "Blades of Glory" outfits? If so, then what's the Standard one of?

    Thanks ahead of time!

    We have a family of 5. For the last 2 years, 1 adult has a PAP and the other has a DAP, like the children. The 1 PAP has worked out for us with parking and discounts and we don't feel the need for all of us to have the Premium pass. It works for us...

    The Special one is Mickey & Goofy in the blue outfits, the ordinary AP is this dull IMO card. It just shows the top of SBC, similiar to that YOAMD logo, somewhat.

    But if you don't go as often as you'd like, getting one PAP and two DAP's would be better.

    Do you go on Saturdays, during the summer? I think that is the main difference btn the PAP and the Deluxe. I have a PAP, my husband and son only have So Cal. They just don't want to go as often as I do, so for us it's not worth the extra money.
    A signature should go here.

    This is exactly what I was thinking of doing but how often do the blockout days affect you guys?

    I didn't realize Deluxe was only blocked out on Saturdays! You're right.
    I think that will work for us this case!

    I had a Delux and not going Saturday's was bad.

    There was someone in my family who always wanted to go to Disneyland on a Saturday. We could not so I upgraded to premuim so I could go by myself whenever I want.

    Re: Time to re-new AP's + 1 new

    My daughter turns 3 on May 15th but I want to buy her pass now.
    The passes date is the date we get it from Disneyland and not the purchase date correct?

    Man, I feel like such a rookie here and I'm not!
    My only excuse is it's a Monday.................

    The pass won't go into effect until you go through the process at the AP center. It can be purchased now and held onto until you're ready to use it!
