Just wondering how many premium passholders are not going to renew due to the increased prices?

I am most definitely renewing my premium pass. However, my wife's name was not drawn out of the hat so she will not be. I Will post pix of the park on MW for her. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 12:35PM
Disney executives we know you lurk here in MW, see what you've done, shame on you. - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 12:38PM
Lucky you, but remember: happy wife equals a happy life. - aidensmama  340.3 #704 12:42PM
Disneyland, wife, Disneyland, wife,Disneyland, wife. Let me get back to you, lol - splashphotoCM  885.6 #206 12:51PM
I will have to downgrade to deluxe if I can get one at all. Paying for college is a priority. - snowwannab  751.3 #253 6:19PM
I'm definitely renewing. I'll just cut unnecessary things out of my life like food and clothing - hd198789  189.4 #2127 10:41PM
I, sadly, will probably not renew. :( - aidensmama  340.3 #704 12:29PM
Sadly myself, my wife and my 3 youngest, so enjoying these last 3 1/2 months - Villescas8  606.9 #336 12:31PM
nooooooooooo!!! - misschurro  6361.2 #17 12:32PM
yeah churro tis true - Villescas8  606.9 #336 12:47PM
Your not renewing at all????????? OMG!!!!!! - Minnis2Society  369.9 #618 1:23PM
Well that's a bunch of poop V8... 😞 - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 1:43PM
We pretty much cut a lot out to get them this year, and we cannot cut more for the renewal, and as a teacher in California , the budget and that mess doesn't guaruntee anything for next yeas salary - Villescas8  606.9 #336 1:46PM
Sad face!! - RickChavez  3671.2 #40 1:48PM
Sorry to hear it :( - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 2:22PM
I'm sorry man. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 2:44PM
This is unacceptable V8 we've yet to hang in the parks! - donnievegas  1132.7 #160 3:04PM
Well there is still time to meet before mid January - Villescas8  606.9 #336 4:37PM
As a California teacher, I hear you! Crossing my fingers that I don't lose 15 days next year. I'd seriously have to reconsider my premium pass! - cinderelli  383.1 #586 5:53PM
We will know after election if we lose those days, I heard if it happens all of June will be gone - Villescas8  606.9 #336 6:13PM
All of June?? Wowzers.... 😞😞 - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 7:59PM
=( - LBChica  2437.4 #59 9:23PM
I not only WILL renew but am upgrading from premium to premier for my trip to Orlando in a few months πŸ˜πŸ˜ƒ just a little excited lol - Donaldfan_532  247.3 #1390 12:40PM
Totally considering this as well! - MonteKristal  311.7 #842 11:20PM
I think the answer is 59. - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 1:37PM
We struggled with the decision to renew Premium again...but after much thought we went for it. The free parking and 20% discount (where applicable) were good incentives. And no black out dates are amazing. Typically our trips are check in on Tuesday night and check out Friday at LEAST once a month...so it really does pay for itself quite fast. It's usually the room and gas that we budget for. We have high stress demanding jobs....we need our Happy Place - DumboGal70  122.8 #3170 10:43PM
My wife is debating on it, and her pass is about 5 months away from expiring - TINO  379.2 #592 12:29PM
Whats it up 2 now?? - Bigchris  17.2 #7951 12:35PM
I had a premium and we were passholders for 7 years but sadly didn't renew cuz $$ :( - SarahLovesDisney  85.2 #3836 12:35PM
My pass expired almost two months ago & I didn't renew it. I wish I could πŸ˜” - CaptainPirateKalven  319.8 #802 12:40PM
I pretty much have too, despite the price bump it's still mose cost effective for me to get us AP's. - madsdad  1868.2 #92 12:43PM
Feel ya there. Way more cost effective here too. - PrincessAuroraMomma  596.0 #342 1:44PM
I'm hoping to renew it we will see when the time comes how money is looking. - brguest85  230.1 #1607 12:51PM
I am. But not renewing my daughter's premium this year. - Gia  802.0 #231 12:51PM
I am renewing two of our three on Wednesday. - sr_citizen_space_ranger  70.0 #4161 12:54PM
Not only am I renewing, but I upgraded to premium 😁 I am very blessed that my husband and I are in a position to do so. 17 more days!! Woot woot! - minnieMisty  276.9 #1088 12:57PM
I got in just under the wire before the price increase to renew our 3 APs for one more year, but won't renew after that at the new prices - Bo22  394.2 #570 1:02PM
We will not as my son will be three and a 6 & 3 year old plus myself and husband is too much. If I knew the memories would be with my youngest I would think about it but he won't remember. - thumperette  40.8 #5177 1:17PM
Unfortunately, we will not be renewing. We might in the future, but I'm not sure when. We live out of state and usually visit four to five times a year. I think we will cut down to once or twice and just buy tickets. - VanDisney  342.3 #698 1:22PM
I may not renew my premium, but I will for sure have some kind of AP next April. - Sarafina  491.7 #432 1:31PM
I will renew but if it goes up again I may not..sadface! - Belony  146.7 #2761 1:38PM
Sad to say it looks like I will not be renewing mine. - solomouselover  319.1 #806 1:47PM
I sadly am not sure if I will be attending the parks due to upcoming surgery which will keep me off my feet till next year. But otherwise, I don't think I'll renew my pass this coming November. - kristian  2004.9 #79 2:10PM
I hope all goes well - Mouse4life  1679.6 #100 2:40PM
Hope you have a healthy pain free recovery. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 11:50PM
We renewed ours because the CM gave us our rate at $479 per person. If it was gonna be $649 I would have said no. - PaintingTheRosesRed  433.9 #505 2:14PM
Did you get that at the gate or was it over the phone? - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #212 2:22PM
It was at the booth. - PaintingTheRosesRed  433.9 #505 5:20PM
pfft dm me on tips ! lol We need to renew ours in a couple of weeks - DisneyMe2Death  875.0 #212 8:03PM
In order to get the previous price you had to renew before the price increase in August, and we had to pay out our old contract as well as the new contract. So our payments were double for 2 months. - PaintingTheRosesRed  433.9 #505 7:29AM
As pass holders we are all responsible for the rate increase. If we want prices to go down all we have to do is not go so dang much...😜 - BambooMike  133.8 #2982 2:19PM
That's not going to happen😁 - Bambi.  605.0 #338 2:22PM
Well I for one have kept myself from going by looking at the live pictures of crowds, and looking at the wait times. It's been pretty easy to stay away lately. 😝 - BambooMike  133.8 #2982 2:31PM
We're still on the fence. Running out of time to decide. Next week may be our last trip for a long time :( - cynDOLEwhip  1175.5 #148 2:22PM
We only have Delux passes, and this is the first year we've ever had AP's to DL. Not sure if we're going to renew or not. - GoofyMom77  904.1 #203 2:33PM
only reason we were able to renew this year was because we were gifted passes and we just put those towards our ap. with gas being so ridic, especially since we drive from san diego, this will likely be it for a while :( - OhanaPhoto  5120.1 #24 2:44PM
I come from San Diego too. As long as I go once a month, the gas isn't so bad and worth the passport. - lovetheland7  177.9 #2279 7:57PM
@lovetheland7 i have disney fever and the only cure is more cowbell ;) - OhanaPhoto  5120.1 #24 8:04PM
Tried not to renew but got Disney withdrawals after a few months. Down graded to deluxe. - Orville  316.5 #819 2:45PM
I renewing. Have to keep my sanity somehow. - FantasmicFan82  195.0 #2059 2:56PM
I just renewed Premium so I can come up (oh & visit the kids in college too) - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 3:15PM
We just bought our family of 5's, and my mom just got hers and my brothers. We don't do a lot as far as going out to begin with, so we didn't have to cut anything out. We all got premiums, and it's 243 a month, and so worth it to me, and I'm very lucky and thankful my hubby has a great job that we can have them. - GarnerPhotography  324.9 #776 3:22PM
I will be renewing our passes. Def doing pymnt plan. I looked into it and for myself and my boyfriend the new pymnt amount will not be no more then $30 extra. And i would def cut cost somewhere else to allow us to go. Also taking water n snacks helps :) - minniel0verβ„’  214.6 #1807 3:25PM
I forgot to mention we have premium ap's - minniel0verβ„’  214.6 #1807 3:26PM
I wish they allowed monthly payments for out of state pass holders. - minigirl1156  771.9 #243 3:51PM
You can get free water at any of the food places. sit down or walk up window style.. - Pintraderswife  468.3 #461 3:58PM
It went up again?! - LolatheSlush  237.5 #1504 4:56PM
We're a family of 4 & will not renew our Premium APs. We live 6 hours north, so we need to get a room & 3 tanks of gas, and with the rate increase, I won't be able to budget that much money. Bummed. One more trip in Nov before they expire. - Diz_Mel  96.0 #3652 5:25PM
Begrudgingly, yes, I am renewing but I hate the raye hike it's exorbitant. About 30% increase. One more hike like this and my income bracket is outside the means - SThooray  6.3 #15310 5:26PM
We are good until April but will not renew this year. At least not premiums. - Krissy Marissy  411.2 #539 5:29PM
Ours renew in Aprial also. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 11:52PM
We sadly will not be able to renew... Just too expensive for a family of four on our meager income (unless we want to live on noodle ramen for a year... I might get reported for child endangerment due to lack of nutrition... It might almost be worth it!). We will look into annual passes again in a few years when it will just be the two of us and (hopefully) within our budget. - Duchess73  340.9 #702 5:42PM
I had a premier pass but it expired last sept. didn't renew it, but lucky for me, im able to buy a premium pass voucher at the military MWR (im still waiting for the right time to redeem it) - otilegna  2665.0 #48 5:42PM
I'm renewing. It still makes sense for me, financially, since I'm coming from NorCal. - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #135 5:46PM
renewing my deluxe pass for one more year. but if the price hikes again, i won't be able to afford it. :/ - PrincessMacy  536.5 #385 5:48PM
We downgraded our premium pas to so cal select since we can go during the week. If either of our work schedule changes we'll have problems going. - Cinderella_Schnooks  3370.7 #42 6:06PM
I'll be renewing mine. It's my one splurge. - Krismiss  304.9 #880 6:14PM
Not only am I going to renew, I am going to get a Premier pass. - MrsMears  217.1 #1772 7:16PM
We got our AP's in July on our visit. So I believe I'm already paying the higher price unless they've gone up again since then? - ShannonAzevedo  157.1 #2606 7:47PM
I just renewed after taking the summer off. However, we downgraded from Delux to So Cal. - jaydeetea  10.0 #11035 8:01PM
649$ holy Moses 😱😱😱😱 - Footguy  12.0 #9855 8:04PM
Worth every penny - IMissDisney  1205.7 #144 8:08PM
We will most likely be downgrading our passes :( - MrsSke11ington  57.6 #4488 8:05PM
Can't afford it. Family of four, not anytime soon. Very, very disappointed. Oh well, there are certainly bigger problems in life - ddmansprty  298.6 #926 8:07PM
Will be renewing in November but will have to downgrade :( - sstarlight  324.7 #778 9:19PM
Decided to go Premium then price increase happened and we changed our minds. But got lucky and Military still has them at the old price. So paid for 4 premiums and will redeem vouchers in Decmeber. Doubt we will do the same next year. - emnldsmom  369.8 #619 9:25PM
I firmly vowed not to renew. I lasted almost a month. - PrinceCorey  4522.4 #30 9:36PM
hahaha - misschurro  6361.2 #17 9:37PM
We live in the Pacific NW and bought passes last year because two of our sons were attending college in So Cal. Our passes expired Aug 17, and only one son is in college down south, but we decided to renew our passes because if we did more than one three day trip, it was worth it. I'm glad we did :) - PrincessKristin  780.8 #240 9:40PM
Hmmm huge gas prices and APincreases. I have to really rethink this! - PrinceTeaJack  934.6 #198 9:42PM
hmmm.... at first glance o this comment, I didn't read it as "huge gas" ... just sayin. say it to yourself once or twice and you'll catch my drift 😏 - PrincessMacy  536.5 #385 10:14PM
We ended up not buying them this year :( we would've had to buy 4 of them πŸ˜– - MrsMinnie  63.4 #4328 9:50PM
First year buying passes before the increase and finally redeeming them tomorrow. When they expire next October, who knows? Initially we were moving to SoCal but now we are staying in Colorado for four more years til Anna finishes college. Not sure if we can fit in two trips while she's in college.... - PeachKay  311.1 #846 10:09PM
I also passed on renewing my pass. :( - azianpoohgirl  109.7 #3437 10:13PM
I must renew, whether I live on top ramen and cereal when I don't have Tatum and when I do make a meal lol - MarshaMouse  5036.0 #25 10:19PM
Unfortunately no. We want to, but just can't do it. - pridegirl  386.8 #582 10:23PM
We love DL but it is getting so expensive when you have to fly there rent a car and hotel. We have had some great times but can't make it every year anymore, - Paul  238.1 #1494 10:49PM
Most likely I will but the funny thing is my pass has the parking and I don't even have a car -_- my husband and I thought by now we'll have a car and nope no car yet. To go to DL I still take the 2 1/2 hr metro & bus ride and I hate it! - KladiaDisneyNinja  279.8 #1057 10:56PM
I'm 100% renewing on 12/12 when my Premium pass expires! There's a long FB post on Disneyland's Annual Passholder page about how this woman isn't renewing and it has thousands of likes. I get it but for me, it's worth it. - MonteKristal  311.7 #842 11:20PM
Saw that today because a friend of mine liked it. Lots of opinions as well that's for sure. - figzchic  806.6 #227 11:39PM
Our passes expired last month and I chose not to renew. I have bills to pay and just couldn't do it at the time. I just changed my work schedule so I need to see if it might be worth it to downgrade to a SoCal. - nerdgirl  86.0 #3821 11:37PM
We just renewed yesterday. It's worth it for us with the payment plan & discounts. Hopefully we'll be able to keep renewing. - VikkiMouse  182.2 #2224 8:01AM
I switched to making coffee at home. My Starbucks Grande Latte 3 times a week: exactly the CA monthly premium payment $48! - ShariRenee  8577.6 #9 8:14AM
We will renew no matter what. We will just have to make more trips to get our $ worth! Premiere pass -has already paid off and we haven't been to WDW yet! Not to mention the discounts! 😍 - smileslikeChesh  25.7 #6433 8:35AM
Yup! I'm addicted...15+ years now 😬 - Sweet_Irish_Cream  4409.0 #32 8:40AM
