    DH and I are planning our 1st ann'y trip in July. We live in Miami and will spend Fri, Sat, Sun at WDW. On a really tight budget, we're wondering if APs make sense since we may be back for a few days in Feb.? Or just go with reg tix? Thanks!

    Hi Medora!

    Thank you for sending in your question to the Walt Disney World Moms Panel!

    That's a really hard question and there probably is no right answer.  It really depends.  However, that said, I recommend not getting Annual Passes.  That is because you said you are on a tight budget and you may not come back.  Instead, you should consider getting the No Expiration Option added to a 10 day Magic Your Way ticket.  Then you can keep your extra days forever; if you don't come back for a couple of years, the extra days will still be good on them!  Another option is to look at special discounted tickets for Florida residents.  Disney definitely runs specials from time to time, for Florida residents, and they are generally a good deal.

    I hope this helps!  Good luck with your decision, and please write back with more questions!
