ok ok guys i need your help!! my pass expires in 18 days exactly so as you guys know im planning my trip to your beloved castle. so my question is. i will be renewing my pass but... heres the question. is it better to upgrade to the premier pass which will get me into all the parks there or should i stick with my premium and just buy tickets separate? i wont do a vacation package because i work for a hotel so i can get good room for a very cheap price somewhere nice and its cheaper that way i dont really care to stay at the big resorts since i know i wont be in there except to sleep. i need as much info as possible please thanks everyone

It depends how long you plan on staying, but it's only about $200 more for a premier which will get you 20% off merchandise and get you into the water parks, WDW doesn't really do food discounts for AP like DL does. You can always buy a premium DL pass and upgrade when you get to WDW. - Andrea84  627.0 #7 11:06AM
thats what i was planning on doing just upgrading when i get there just incase something happens and cant make it. im trying to do a week but i am not sure yet how long does it take to do all the parks? so you think its better to just go with the premier ? are the water parks any fun ? never even seen pics of them - Hendizl  2394.9 #43 11:14AM
Oh gosh, we have never had passes, so I'm not sure, but I bet some of the FL locals can help. Good luck!! What dates are you going? - mrsincredible  769.9 #6 11:06AM
im trying to plan in early 2013 sometime between January and march if everything goes according to plan - Hendizl  2394.9 #43 11:12AM
My birthday is March 28th. A trip to WDW would make a great present. ;) - BagGal  221.4 #31 12:45PM
Haha!! - mrsincredible  769.9 #6 4:03PM
I think you should upgrade. Me and my sister did for our upcoming trip. We plan on park hopping a bit so that's why the pass is good plus the discount on merchandise. Plus the premier pass is a cool gold card. haha :) - misseeyore  538.0 #316 11:12AM
haha i want that gold card. when are you guys going ? - Hendizl  2394.9 #43 11:15AM
We leave Dec 13 and come back Dec 21. There's so much we want to do in such little time. But I know we're just going to soak in everything and enjoy what the parks have to offer. - misseeyore  538.0 #316 11:32AM
thats a pretty long time a week i think is perfect. wow you leave in couple days where are you staying at ? - Hendizl  2394.9 #43 11:36AM
and are you just going to eat whatever comes to mind when you get there or your doing some sort of dining plan? - Hendizl  2394.9 #43 11:36AM
We will be staying at the Art of Animation. I can't wait to walk around and take pictures. I was thinking of doing the dining plan but we aren't very big eaters. It depends I guess but we just plan on going to the quick service restaurants. Probably try a little of everything. - misseeyore  538.0 #316 11:54AM
Post pics of Art of Animation :) - otilegna  1750.6 #67 12:43PM
I agree with misseyore...upgrade..idk too much about it tho. Used to do the annual pass all the time. Good luck making a decision and congrats on your upcoming trip!! Yay:-) - mickeynme  151.0 #50 11:19AM
oh and what exactly is the dining plan? - Hendizl  2394.9 #43 11:20AM
We haven't done it before,so i can't speak from experience. We've always payed for our meals out of pocket,but i think we've wasted money that way. I heard dining plans can save a lotttttttt of money,so definitely ask around about it. Hopefully someone here can help...good luck:-) - mickeynme  151.0 #50 11:25AM
Hmmm, it is like a prepaid meal voucher per day (sort-off). I did that during my last trip to WDW. I got the Dining plan that consists of 1 Table-Service, 1 Quick Service and 1 Snack per day. If you are a heavy eater or have a lot of time to roam (Table Service will consume your time, especially a popular restaurant) just go for a quick service restaurant. - otilegna  1750.6 #67 12:47PM
And yeah, Dining plan will save you money IF YOU ORDER The most expensive meal of the restaurant ;) (even if you will add tips, it is still better compare to Tables of Wonderland Membership card) - otilegna  1750.6 #67 12:48PM
Henry, here is what we did. We get the Premium Pass and finance it. You cannot finance the Premier. When you are ready to go to WDW upgrade your Premium to a Premier Pass. You just have to pay the full difference in cost then. This way, if your plans ever change you didn't invest in the more expensive pass. The Premier will still expire based on your Premium Pass date of renewal. We did this a couple of years in a row, saved a bundle. - jacdanfan  6245.3 #10 12:15PM
oh ok thanks thats what i was thinking. do you know anything about the dining plan? or should i just eat as i go kind of like disneyland? also where did you guys stay at ? - Hendizl  2394.9 #43 12:33PM
When we have done dining is when it was free as part of a package with hotel and tickets. The last time we upgraded our premium to premier and didn't use the tickets. We were able to use the unused ticket value towards our pass renewal at a later date. Was somewhat complicated but that way we got AP hotel discount, free dining. We've stayed several hotels on property. Most recently we stayed at the Pop Century which is the best of the value resorts. I don't think you should pay for dining. - goofygal  6139.6 #11 1:08PM
Chrck the WDW website about Dining Plan. It seems that the 2012 and 2013 change a lot (most Epcot Table service restaurant are not included on 2013 one). But dining plan is good fira refular plan or the quick service one (just get the most expensive one) - otilegna  1750.6 #67 1:03PM
If you really want to maximize your stay at WDW, premier pass is the best deal. Park hopper option plus free parking (if you are planning to stay outside the property, you need to pay parking if you only got the regular ticket).... Also, like jacdanfan said, upgrade it when you are ready to go. :) - otilegna  1750.6 #67 1:07PM
