    What pass works for you?

    It's renewal time in my household and while I have the 365 days, 4 parks pass, I think we are just going to get the FL resident seasonal pass this year.

    So I was wondering, what does everyone else have and why do you prefer that pass over the others?

    I'd like to know as well. We want AP's but living up here in Jacksonville I'm almost thinking a Season Pass may be best for now... Except for the blackout dates...

    I thought of that too but the blackout dates aren't that bad, only during times most of us wouldn't want to go anyway. LOL

    Re: What pass works for you?

    I have a standard all year pass. Never really considered downgrading to a seasonal, because I don't want to have to think about whether I'm in a blackout or not. My trips are all either really spontaneous, or they coincide with someone else's vacation. So it's best not to have limitations as far as I'm concerned.

    Basically, any time I get an AP for any park I divide the cost of the AP by the cost of a single day ticket. As long as I'm go to the parks at least that many days, the AP has paid for itself as far as I care. That's why I still have a Disney AP, but no longer have Universal. Between trips with friends and solo trips, Disney is worth it for me. Universal, as much as I enjoy those parks, isn't very fun for solo trips so I didn't use it as much.

    I did upgrade to the premium AP one year, because my ex was insistent that she wanted to go to the water parks and stuff. We never used the extra perks once the entire year.

    Re: What pass works for you?

    I usually just get the FL resident 3 or 4 Day Play pass and I sometimes add the parkhopper & no expiration options. When I had a regular AP, going too often got to be overkill for me and I actually got tired of WDW for awhile (shock! horror!). So now, going 3 or 4 times a year, the trips are more special as I break them up and make long weekends out of them.

    This year though, it looks like I'll only be going twice this year... in August for my birthday (free admission) and either in May or October or November (last day on my pass from last year).

    I'm actually looking a bit more forward to going to Busch Gardens this year. I haven't been since the fall of 2001 and I need a serious coaster fix.

    We have the seasonal passes. We live in Kansas so we don't go as frequently as you locals We have been going about 2 or 3 times a year and we just purchase the seasonal passes and then if we do go during a black out time we just upgrade to an annual pass.

    Re: What pass works for you?

    I've been struggling with what to get this year as well. Up till now, I've been getting a 10 day park-hopper with no expiration, which turns out to be like $43 per day. I have three days left on my old pass.

    I was thinking about getting a Florida resident seasonal pass, but to make it worth it, I'd have to visit at least 6 days. We're going to Gay Day this year, which is the first day the seasonal pass has a black out - boo Disney!

    Last year, I visited for only 5 days, but I also used it for one day at Disneyland in California. I don't think the annual or seasonal passes permit that.

    I'm thinking that I will stick to getting regular passes without discounts as I don't know what the future holds and how many times I will be able to visit WDW this year.

    Sorry, hope I didn't confuse you since we live in Kansas. We also have a business in Florida therefore my hubby has a Florida license.

    I have the regular 4 park annual pass. It really is the only option for someone that doesn't live in Florida unless you go to the waterparks a lot.
