I guess that's nice - I don't particularly have any NFL loyalties - I just like the sub.

Ah, yes... a dirty chicken po-boy. Just what the well-fed Saints fan will feast on this year.

I'm a big fan of the Falcons version here in GA. Sweet maple-flavored chicken tenders, bacon, sriracha mayonnaise, and peach preserves.

For us, we don’t see the 71% increase in value. It’s actually the opposite. We are paying for new rides that we can’t even get a FP for as a “lowly” pass holder. I love the classics, but my 100th ride on space mountain isn’t worth almost double....

Next years added benefit will be the Disney Magical Identity Theft Experience - where they just take all of your money without your permission. No need to even bother yourself about renewing your pass - we won't leave you with enough money to buy one.

It is vital to the success of our organization Kind regards, Kaitlin Heitz Guest Experience Services Walt Disney World Resort 407-934-6555 This is the worst response I’ve ever seen from them. I LOVE the fact that they throw out a whole list of passes that the majority of people aren’t even eligible to purchase (and a quick check on my MDE account would have shown that I am not a FL resident). I sent an email saying that I wasn’t going to buy an AP because of this blatant money grab, and they addressed it by trying to SELL me an AP. I wasn’t expecting anything from them, so it doesn’t matter, and I’m not surprised, but this is about as tone deaf as a company can get. It would have been better if they didn’t even respond.

Well, since someone brought it up... $654 - Regular AP in 2015 $1119 - Platinum AP in 2019 (comparing apples-to-apples, regardless of name) $465 increase (71% increase compared with the 2015 AP price)

They announced to AP 3 days before the increase that they would be a sneak preview of GE for Platinum, Platinum plus, and Premium Passholders. They had a plan in place. I was going to upgrade mine from Silver to Platinum just to get that sneak preview...then this occurred. Now I won't even be renewing come renewal time.

Disney is purposeful about what they do. With ALL of the increases over the last 5 years, I think it adds up to about 50%. Perhaps they are truly trying to phase out annual passes.

If they raise it a nickel, I'm out! Dimes, quarters, pennies, dollars, whatever. Anything but nickels. :joyfull:

xdan0920Jun 26, 2019

Eggsactlee. For all intents and purposes $93 a day is $100 a day, unless you are budgeting down to the nickel.

LuvtheGoofJun 26, 2019

That'll be next year. Right now, for 7 day park hopper tickets that are good from Dec. 21st - Dec. 30th, it's an average of $93.12/day - $651.84.
