    I go to Disney at least once per year for a week (arrive May 28th). I am considering purchasing an AP. Is it worth purchasing for only going once per year or should I continue to purchase 4/5 day park hopper tickets each year? Thank you!

    Hi Scott,

    Thanks for stopping by to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Your vacation is literally here, so let me help you out quickly.

    There are a few different Annual Pass options available. A Disney Platinum Pass will let you access all four Theme Parks, including the ability to go from park to park on the same day, with NO blackout dates. You also get complimentary Theme Park parking and Disney PhotoPass downloads too. And you will get access to some special offers for stays at Disney Resort hotels, and discounts on dining and more.

    The Disney Platinum Plus Pass adds access to both Disney Water Parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex, and Disney's Oak Trail Golf Course, in addition to all the benefits of the Disney Platinum Pass. There's also an option for Water Parks Annual Pass, giving you access to both Water Parks.

    Pricing at this time including tax, per person, for children 3-9 and adults 10 and up is:

    • Disney Platinum Pass -  $797.69
    • Disney Platinum Plus Pass - $882.89
    • Water Parks Annual Pass - $122.48

    Now is it worth it? If you are going to Walt Disney World Resort for ten days, and staying off site, then I would say maybe. If you are only visiting once a year, for only 4 or 5 days, then maybe not, however, you may have to run the numbers to see if it it's still worth it. Visit the Theme Park Tickets page for more information.

    Hopefully this will give you an idea on the costs, but remember that there are always amazing offers that you may want to take advantage of. Simply visit the Special Offers page.

    See you real soon!
