Why do SoCal residents get such a huge break on APs? I mean really, a SoCal AP is less than a 4 day park hopper! Wish I could get one!!!! Or at least give a year in which to update a park hopper into a regular AP pass. I now wish we had upgraded our park hoppers earlier this year so we could go back but at the time we never anticipated being able to return within the year. Being out of area it is always too much of a gamble for us to buy a full price AP and then sooo expensive to buy a second set of 5 day hoppers.
We would love to go back again in December to see the park all decked out for xmas but $600 again for entries just makes it undoable.
