    What do YOU like about having an AP?


    P.S. Sorry for anyone who does not yet have an AP.

    Well, light travels from the sun. Then, bounces off of our planet, and back into our eyes so we can perceive color. My body can intercept that light and dance around on it!

      I TOTALLY understand what you mean about the AP's. My husband and I got our premium passes last year and we are going to renew them every year.

      I never took the time to appreciate how beautiful and magical the park is. I was always spending too much time calculating how many rides I could go in the short amount of time I was there when I paid at the gate.

      Having a pass is absolutley incredible. And we live only 4 miles from the park, so a lot of times my husband and I will go just to see Fantasmic! Or we'll go after dinner to get a churro and walk around the park and just take it all in.

      It's wonderful! Best investment ever!!!!

          My fiance and I just got our premium passes. Sort of an early wedding present to each other. Anway, we had some time on Saturday night, so we decided to head on down to the park. We took a stroll around, (that's right, a stroll) enjoyed a few rides, enjoyed the details of the park. I even discovered a new favorite of mine: the shooting exposition. I had never bothered to waste my time there before, I had other more important things to do. Not anymore. I don't know if they made any major changes during the refurb, but that thing is sweet. Anyway, we stayed until closing, just enjoying the park and each other.

          Best part about having an AP? Easy. Sunday night. Same story. Went just because we could. Oh, and that 50 cents in my pocket, that got used on some shootin'.

            I second that thought. I would be so happy if I could manage to get to the park for a few days just once a year. Unfortunately, until I move far far away from here, that is highly unlikely.

                        I have to agree totally. I usually visit the park after work and to pick up my honey!

                        It is totally a different state of mind on an AP! I wander around, talk to cast member friends, sit and people watch and on occassion jump on a ride if the line is short.

                        I find, after a stressful day at work, just walking in those gates makes all the worrys of the day disappear!! I am relaxed and SO peaceful!!

                        I think, now that I have my pass, I couldn't go back to paying for a ticket for a day!!

                        LOVE MY AP!!!!!

                          I can't wait until fall to do things like that! I have a premium AP and I don't new the newsletter? What is the deal with that? I like the fact that when I go on vacation I can rush to to the hotel, drop my bags, grab my eeyore bag and pin bag and go to the park, relax and just realize where I am. I need to SEE IT so I can stop being ansy and get some sleep. I get so excited I just need to see it. In Jan. I went in the rain to Downtown Disney and bought pins and then walked back to a hotel I didn't know it was across the street. Quite fun and totally worth it. I also like being able to go without having to feel rushed on my park hopper ticket. If my mom has a 5 day ticket and we are there 7 days I can go more and just do and see what I want.

                            Gibbage, you nailed it. I've said the same exact things several times in here on other threads.

                            I've gone to the parks when stressed out before, just to calm, sit, relax, and think; just for a meal, and even to wait out afternoon traffic. There is nothing in the world like sitting with a good book in a Plaza Inn sunroom with a cup of coffee on a winter evening.

                            Disneyland is beautiful, magical; it is indeed the attraction in and of itself that Gibbage mentioned. I've enjoyed so much watching my friends undergo that same transformation when they realize what a great "park" Disneyland is once they hold that magic plastic card.

                              I love going whenever I feel like it Not having to worry about missing any of the rides cause I can go again the next day or week and go on it then.

                                I love that I can:

                                1) Hear about a sneak preview of fireworks at 2:00 PM on a Monday afternoon.

                                2) Call my boyfriend and ask "fireworks and Dole Whip?" and get a "yes."

                                3) Zip down at 5:15 and arrive in time to see the 6:00 parade almost in entirety.

                                4) Hear him suggest a ride on Pirates, having not so long ago been interested in such a thing

                                5) Have time to grab veggies and salad at Plaza Inn before we...

                                6) ...see the fireworks among the first batch of guests to witness their brilliance.

                                7) Bump into friends I didn't know were going to be there and squeak in geeker joy over the spectacle.

                                8) Reassure the boyfriend that I won't make him come back until July 17 unless he wants to.

                                9) Be asked to remind the boyfriend what exactly he'd get on his June birthday in the park, and have him suggest that we come and celebrate it with the free Blue Bayou mousse. Here's to converting muggles!

                                  I can't tell you how much Victoria and I have enjoyed our APs. We often travel between our home in the San Fernando Valley and San Diego. Often we will divert for a few hours and drop in to Disneyland. With the pressure to do-it-all removed, we've been able to take time and enjoy the park even more. Since DLR is only about 45 minutes away, it's also fun when we're trying to decide what to do for the day to say, "Heck, let's go to Disneyland!"
                                  "Yesterday, a man walked up to me and said, 'Isn't it a shame that Walt Disney couldn't be here to see this?' and I said, "He did see this, that's why it's here."

                                    I love going when I feel like it. I don't want to plan a day, and sometimes we don't even ride anything. It is just a great place to hang out!

                                      I enjoy seeing those survey takers pretend I don't exist when I go through the turnstiles. And getting a laugh knowing that the GF and I are exactly the kind of people they should be asking questions of since we have just drove a four hundred and eight miles one way just to get to the park.

                                      I am so excited we are doing our first ever second visit in one season next week ( we go every season as another way to enjoy aour Deluxe pass). We went last March and we are set to stay in Dl hotel next week, I wonder if there is some kind of special surprise I can have waiting for my sweetie in the room when we check in any ideas would be appreciated. And yes I am planing on checking in right at check in time so she can see Goofy! That is such a special perk!
