Thank you all! I love mousewait, you're all awesome! So is my hubby, he is willing to try out passes for one year!!! - MamalovesMinnie 14.4 #7638 12-26-12 6:04PMLike(2)Reply
I was thinking of getting the Deluxe and aim for at least 4 times, which is what we did this year. I want to join the ap family! :) - MamalovesMinnie 14.4 #7638 12-26-12 5:11PMLike(1)Reply
Are you in CA? We have Had Deluxe's for the kids and I have a premium. We went over 75 times. - MeridasHair 346.5 #607 12-26-12 5:07PMLikeReply
I have the Premium. I live in San Diego and figure as long as I get there at least 5-6 times a year (which hasn't been a problem!), and considering it includes parking and discounts, it's paid for itself. I probably visit at least 1-2 times a month. - Gia 801.8 #194 12-26-12 5:08PMLikeReply
I have a premium AP and have gone 18 times (not bad considering I am from NorCal). I feel my pass has been totally worth it and I will renew it when the time comes. - PrincessLeia 293.8 #853 12-26-12 5:12PMLikeReply
I have a Premium pass and live in NV. My boyfriend and I go maybe 4 times a year with each visit being 2-3 days and some spur of the moment trips in between. It's definitely worth it for us because our passes pay for parking and we get discounts on food and merchandise with no blackout dates. - KermitFan13 646.5 #259 12-26-12 5:13PMLikeReply
Deluxe I go at least 5+ times per year. I don't go on Sat so I don't need the premium. - AliceLovesEeyore 39.2 #4796 12-26-12 5:18PMLikeReply
I have a deluxe since I'm from Arizona. I went 7 times with it last year 😊 - AshleyLynn22 791.2 #198 12-26-12 5:20PMLikeReply
I have a premium and I actually lost count of how many trips I've made this year. I think it's about 11 trips total this year, each trip being more than one day. I live about 300 miles north of DL. - Jillian 767.1 #207 12-26-12 5:25PMLikeReply
Hi, I'm also from central California and we have the premium passes we go every couple of months. With the premium pass you will have free parking and tons of discounts. You can get discounts in down town Disney as well. Best wishes and seasons greeting. - thisgirllovesdisney 14.7 #7560 12-26-12 5:27PMLikeReply
Premium, 1 to 2 times a week. Approx. 80 visits per year. An excellent value. - timetraveler2442 338.8 #627 12-26-12 5:33PMLikeReply
Premium is the way to go if you can afford it. Before I was a passholder, I thought I would only go once or twice a year, and was always afraid I would waste the money I put into the pass. After I got my pass, I ended up going over 25 times last year without even realizing it. You tend to go more often spur of the moment when you know you can. :) - Alicewhoareyou 1295.4 #104 12-26-12 6:04PMLikeReply
We live in the Central Valley, and get the cheapest passes. We try to make 2-3 trips a year for 2-3 days at a time, four fays at Christmas. We have to plan around block out days, but at least my hubby doesn't have to fight for the prime vacation days at work, and the park is not stupidly busy when we go. We always get a hotel within walking distance, so parking is not a problem either. The short answer is, whatever works for you. - LittleAprilShowers 559.5 #315 12-26-12 6:22PMLikeReply
We have Premium and go at least 12 time a year. - Boundin 533.9 #337 12-26-12 6:29PMLikeReply
My family has 4 passes. 2 premium & 2 southern california. We go at least 2X a month with the premium & the other 2 get to go on Sundays. In the summer we go more often after work with the premiums. - Winnie111286 1942.4 #66 12-26-12 6:30PMLikeReply
Do not ask the price I pay for I must live with my quiet rage
Tame the ghosts in my head that run wild and wish me dead
Should you shake my ash to the wind
Lord forget all of my sins
Oh let me die where I lie 'neath the curse of my lover's eyes - Dave 11824.2 #2 12-26-12 6:46PMLikeReply
Premium is the best one for Disneyland Resort ANnual Pass... Parking is included. 20% on merchandise, 15% on food :) - otilegna 1842.3 #71 12-26-12 6:53PMLikeReply
Also if you want to go during Christmas/New Year time period, premium is the best one... - otilegna 1842.3 #71 12-26-12 6:54PMLikeReply
My family of 4 all have Premium Passes. We live in NorCal and head to the parks every 4-6 weeks. We will upgrade when our passes expire even though we won't go as frequently next year. Deluxe passes don't really work for our family as school gets in the way. Good luck with your decision. - LaPearleNoir 1248.6 #108 12-26-12 6:59PMLikeReply
