What's the longest you've ever gone (While having an annual pass) without making it to disneyland?
Its been 2 years just this past june 15th. We had our annual passes for 3 years and live in Tucson. But we would go every chance we got, maybe 6-8 times a year. But then our minis stop appreciating it as much as they use to. They saw it as a given that we would go whenever and started complaining on our trips. So we decided to to go cold turkey and wait 2-3 years till we go again, the minis have learned there lesson and we are planning a haloween trip and will surpise them with annual passes at that point again and hopefully they will realize its a privilege to be able to go to the most wonderful place on earth.  - Firefighter_Donald   42.7 #4592 6-20-14 1:09PM Like(3)  Reply

We have been going at least once per month since we got our AP in October. We only live 40 minutes away and it's the ONLY place I can take my two year old where he won't melt down. When he's three we won't be able to get him a pass so we are living it up - hleclair   29.2 #5316 6-20-14 5:52PM Like  Reply

Anyone have any insight as to what's going to happen with the annual passes in the near future? I'm hearing rumors that they will be going away or only sold on a very limited basis...thanks for your time!

Just curious, folks... How do you deal with those "line holders" and "cutters" in line? Light hearted and humorous ideas and stories appreciated- it is Disney, afterall!
Once they find their party, I like to drag my four kids forward and pretend like I am meeting my party right in front of them. It's only awkward for a minute while the strangers I am pretending to join realize they don't know me. But I am endearing... - DisneyOnesie   531.4 #334 1-23-14 8:25AM Like(4)  Reply
I never mind line holders because what difference does it really make? Line cutters are a different story. I will and have said something. They never argue with me. Of course I am giving them my "Don't Mess With Me Look". It's NASTY!  Just ask my kids, they know it well. It's even working on my nearly 4 yr old grandson.  - DisneyGrandma   694.7 #231 1-23-14 7:15AM Like(2)  Reply
I completely agree. I line hold all the time and it really doesn't make a difference if a few people join you because they were eating or going to the bathroom (etc.). But yes, line cutting is very unfair and it makes me so pissed when someone does.  - BrerRabbit  347.1 #597 1-23-14 12:09PM
I had a FP for tot and there were no cms around. ย As we were walking up to the "check in desk", a group of about 10 girls jumped over the chain into the FP line right ahead of us. Cutting people that were in about a 40 min line. I said "uh..... No! Excuse you!" They let us back in front of them and said "oh sorry you were ahead of us!" As we turned the corner and the CM was telling us which side to go to we let him know what had happened. He said that sadly that happens really often. :( people are so inconsiderate!ย  - BellesLibrary   401.9 #478 1-24-14 3:40PM Like  Reply

Looking for a little help...where in the park would I have heard "oh Susanna" played on a harmonica? It's stuck in my head, and I can't place it! It's not the start of Pirates (banjo). I seem to be thinking its on the train...thanks guys!
Perhaps The Voices of Liberty? I know they sing "Oh Susanna" and start it with a harmonica. O: ) - jennyangel25   15.0 #7351 1-26-13 5:30AM Like(1)  Reply

We were there in DL for Christmas before. They stopped to let people in to the park before noon due to over capacity. All lines for rides were extra long, the whole park was super crowded. We never seen that much people in the same place before. We didn't get on most of the rides as planned; however, we had the most magical Christmas ever. Lucky we saved our magical morning for that day. - RapunzalK   195.8 #1925 8-7-12 2:02AM Like  Reply
