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  73.4 #4359 1:09PM
I like your style.  - disneymomma87  220.2 #1886 4:05PM
Thank you :) I think it is harder for me and the misses to not go.  - Firefighter_Donald  73.4 #4359 4:15PM
Thank you for making the sacrifice to teach your children that they should appreciate their blessings. Parents like you are a rare commodity these days.  - bks4lou  222.2 #1869 5:17PM
Thank you @bks4lou, I am sure a lot of the community would have done the same :) You always feel like you are being a bad parent when you see your mini's sad but soMetimes those hard decisions need to made.  - Firefighter_Donald  73.4 #4359 6:14PM
Or passES if more than a year...  - gobigdan  11.9 #11152 2:18AM
We didn't have passes for about 3 years.  With a small baby and very active little boy and financial problems we just couldn't do it.  Then last year we got So Cal passes and would go once a month.  Now we have premium and go at least once a month.  Some months we have spent 3 - 4 different days at the parks.  Premium has made it much more easier for us to go the parks when we feel like it.  Although more expensive it has definitely been worth it for us. - potatohead25  856.3 #264 4:48PM
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  62.1 #4710 5:52PM

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  621.2 #386 8:25AM
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  892.0 #251 7:15AM
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  360.8 #749 12:09PM
I just shout cutters cutters and I point at them - Hendizl  2956.8 #60 2:14PM
I'm always curious about this--do people ever react or get embarrassed?  Seems like if you're going to brazenly cut in line, you probably have no shame anyway, and don't care what others think.  So being called out won't bother you, lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  718.6 #335 2:26PM
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  431.4 #601 3:40PM

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  21.5 #7830 5:30AM

We loved our trip here so much (as usual) our car didn't want us to leave! The car not starting for the ride home tonight was not on the itinerary! Tow truck in the morning, hopefully quick and cheap (fingers crossed) repairs, then North on I5. Disney always surprises!

Still here! It was the fuel pump, $600 (major ouch!). The repairs should be all done by this evening, so we're just doing a bonus chill day in the parks...lemons=lemonade! - gobigdan  11.9 #11152 11:36AM

It's special. Santa Clause is in the parade! And don't forget the pajama party at closing. It's awesome! - MyPark  1298.8 #165 10:26PM
All during the holiday theme after fireworks it will snow! - MyPark  1298.8 #165 10:27PM
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  196.7 #2202 2:02AM

Ok, hoping I can get some help here... Did the entrance to HM used to be on the side of the mansion? I distinctly recall, at a young age (probably in the early 1980's) the entrance being on the side of the building. I remember dracula opening the door to let people in from the line....

What I failed to mention is that I also distinctly recall being scared to death hen he opened the door. At that point I jumped over the little iron rod fence on the porch and took off running through the grass to get away. Am I nuts? I remember it tho... - gobigdan  11.9 #11152 11:07PM

just read this on the wikipedia page... Years ago, the cemetery paid tribute to the Imagineers, much like the one at Florida and Tokyo, but was changed when the queue was expanded some time after the mid-80s, to make room for the handicapped entrance. - wickedale  441.0 #588 12:01AM
