Hey everyone, so here's a question: who here has a deluxe pass with parking added? And if so, is it worth it adding the parking, or would you have preferred getting a premium pass? The reason I ask is cuz my premium is set to expire next week, & I'm planning to go renew sometime this week, but with all the price changes & hikes, I'm debating about downgrading to a deluxe with parking added. Any suggestions/comments ate welcomed. I trust y'all's judgment.

Deluxe $499+ Parking $125 is $624. Premium is $649. For $25 more you get a better discount on food and souvenirs. 😁 - Waites4DodgerEars_CM  1002.5 #188 9:07PM
And no yucky black out dates 😊 - MandyPooh  477.9 #446 9:14PM
deluxe is $469 - MaidMiriam  308.0 #871 10:52PM
i just checked the DL website deluxe $469 with parking is $598. so it's a $51 difference. might as well go premium - MaidMiriam  308.0 #871 10:58PM
I upgraded to a premium after looking at the difference of deluxe with parking (598) vs premium (49) and realizing that with monthly payments, that's only $4 more a month.  You'll get that money back for sure with the extra discounts on food and merch.  So if you are thinking of getting the parking with deluxe, I think it makes more sense to go premium.  Without parking, it's more of a jump in prices. - Sarafina  491.7 #432 9:10PM
As a family of four we went with the Deluxe passes. My 3 year old has te parking pass. Because we purchased for the family the savings were significant and the blackouts don't hurt us as we are local and I have a flexible schedule. However if I was purchasing just for me it would be the premium pass. - Darthnater  411.3 #539 8:30AM
Sorry didn't mean to post this twice. - Darthnater  411.3 #539 8:32AM
That's interesting. If I may ask why did you put the parking on your three year olds pass? - Princessana08  69.9 #4165 9:19AM
Clever with the 3 year old having the Premium - never thought of that solution for my sister's family. I gotta let her know. - onezerohero  174.2 #2329 10:47AM
Not sure without checking the new prices, but I went with the premium over deluxe +parking, since for me it was only $20 more.  The discounts have already made up the cost difference.  The rest of my family has deluxe passes, though, so I haven't been able to take advantage on certain days every other pass is blocked, though.   - heidnseek  210.6 #1868 9:06PM
Two words - "NO blackouts!". With that do the premium! - cacjacky  22.7 #6889 9:08PM
For the price, you might as well get the Premium. No blackout days and a better discount. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 9:10PM
I'm thinking of doing the same thing. My premium has better discounts than my husband's deluxe, and then there's no blackout days, which comes in handy at holidays and during summer. It's a tough choice that I don't have to make until next March. Let us know how it works out for you. Good luck! - debbiev  1170.7 #151 9:11PM
Premium... no parking fee, if you go once a month it pays for itself; no blackout days, now you can go at least once a month; discount on food and purchases, BONUS!!! - Boundin  711.6 #272 9:27PM
Premium! No blackout dates, better discount, if you go 8 times it pays for itself, Saturday's are slower because other passes are blocked, and no regrets! - Captain J  221.9 #1710 12:46AM
Do you mean 8 single day visits? Explain what you mean with "8 times"? - joshwikler  47.5 #4885 7:41AM
My 3 year old has the delux with parking And my wife and I have deluxe only. We chose to do that because for a family it was significantly cheaper but still had plenty of days for us to go. If I was single I would get the premium. But with a family the deluxe was a good choice for us. - Darthnater  411.3 #539 6:42AM
Premium ALL the way if you can swing it. It made BooEve's whole year!!! She was a saddie being blocked. If ya like yer freeeeedom, go with Premium - misschurro  6362.0 #17 7:18AM
Premium!!! It's the best purchase I have made. I can come and go as many times as I please without having to check if I am blocked. - thestalkerNIN  362.4 #636 7:23AM
and her mom said she could :) - misschurro  6362.0 #17 7:24AM
Yeah! But only after she got her permium pass!  - thestalkerNIN  362.4 #636 8:14AM
Premium is worth it - ScooterMike  1963.0 #83 7:37AM
Premium all the way!!! - DisneyNorm  1402.4 #127 7:41AM
OR stay with premium! Do monthly payments! This was the first year I did monthly and boy did I find out that's the way to go! I've been a pass holder for nearly 4 years and I ways coughed up $500-$600 bucks and it definitely hurt me. Put only an $80 down payment and you only have to pay between $40-45 a month for premium! Do it do it do it! - nickb92  69.6 #4173 8:33AM
The wife and I each bought premium aps and spent 4 days the first trip and with all discounts we are only down 400.00 from original price with what we spent at the park plus put the widest on a payment plan with no interist(sorry) - TheHubs  217.9 #1764 8:41AM
I just renewed my pass had the deluxe and upgraded to the premium. I renewed a week before it expired and I got to keep the old price $479( I believe that was the old price). - ccobian2  13.3 #9221 8:48AM
Don't forget, you get $20 off for renewing before your pass is expired. :) - LoveMyBoy  30.2 #5964 8:51AM
and an additional 30 days after it expires. - Armenda  1159.7 #152 10:52AM
I have the premium pass for the parking and discounts alone. My family has deluxe but adding on the parking was so much that it was worth it for one of us to get the premium pass. I always pay for everything since I get the discount. In my opinion, it is worth it to get the premium. - 2princesses  236.7 #1512 8:57AM
