We're not sure. We're afraid that if we say we're going somewhere our oldest will suspect something so I think we're going to tell them we are going to sea world ( again) and then just drive to Disneyland instead. I think they'll forgive us. :) - katiesarahmommy  210.5 #1706 12:38PM

It doesn't really feel higher based on a 3 day hopper. But for 2 deluxe passes it may be about $5-$10 more annually.
An incredible deal. Still a great value. Worth every penny... and more!! - MickeyLumboCM  405.9 #462 1:41AM
Usually Disney has given notice in the past. Why was there no notice or did I just miss it? - SDKimble  155.3 #2460 1:43AM
I agree!  Still a great value!  4% ($30) is not a big deal for a year of magic. - AZDisney  598.0 #275 9:01AM

The increase isn't much compared to the magic of the Disneyland experience. But it looks like Sundays will be start being a lot lighter with no SoCal passholders. - BeatleMike  506.5 #342 2:15AM
๐Ÿ˜ - missariel33  1309.2 #93 10:13PM
The only part that bit me in the butt was not having notice.  I let my passes expire two weeks ago since I knew I was not going until June.  The increase isn't huge, though, and it is still worth it to me even though I live in Texas and can only go a few times a year.   - Thumper13  334.4 #620 10:20AM
I am also upgrading mine to a premium for the discount but leaving my son's as deluxe.  I never go on the busy weekends so it doesn't make sense for both of us to get the premium. - Thumper13  334.4 #620 10:22AM
You should still be able to renew. Call guest services and ask. (I don't have the number).  - IDVandalSkipperCM  2015.3 #53 10:23AM
Really?! I am going to give them a call. Thanks! - Thumper13  334.4 #620 11:18AM
Annual passes should be even more considering how much entertainment you are given every time you walk through the gates.  Anyone who lives close to the park and goes fairly regularly are getting so much for their money.  This hurts the lower middle class family that saves for that one family vacation and every dollar counts.  Nobody in so cal should complain about the wonderful opportunity we have of living close and being able to use a pass.  They could raise the APs much more and it would still be a value.   - verolly  617.2 #267 12:26PM

For some reason we only come during holiday weekends. With that said, it will be busy, but if you get there at opening, play for a few hours, get fast passes, take an afternoon break and then plan on being there til close, it is totally worth it. You may only be able to ride everything once, but I think once is better than nothing.
Just go and have fun. It will be busy, so pack your patience. And don't base your 'Fun Meter' on how many 'rides' you get to go on. Catch a parade, catch one of the many shows, discover things you had not seen before. take it in and have fun! - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  3369.2 #26 3:43PM

Yep, I agree 100%. ย The crowds can be miserable if you become a part of them, but if you're proactive and plan ahead, you can separate yourselves and work around the crowd. ย We have only gone during peak weekends in the last 3-4 years, and our trips are very few and far between now, but we learned how to maximize our vacay. ย Everyone in the group has to be on board with getting up early and getting through the gates before rope drop, and it's a good idea to sit down ahead of time, explain this, and give everyone the chance to choose one "must-do" attraction, then make it a point to do those things in the mornings (before about 10-11 o'clock). ย Be ok with not riding EVERYTHING, and relax with food/drinks, parades, shows, and less popular rides in the afternoon/evening. Disney has tons of surprising and pleasant hidden treasures and peaceful nooks and crannies to explore. Good luck! ย I think it's still worth doing--it just takes more planning, coordination, and energy in the mornings!ย  - Spoonful_O_Sugar  505.4 #343 6:26PM
Spoonful_O_Sugar said it best.  Get there before rope drop.  Each person gets 1 must do.  Get FP if available for must dos early.  Then do those must dos before 10 or 11.  In addition everyone is blocked out except Premium for Saturday and Sunday so this could possibly help the crowd factor.  - Gabster1forDodgers  502.2 #349 7:47PM
