    Visiting AKL 3 nights DVC and Copper Creek 5 nights DVC. Wondered if better to buy 7 day tickets and convert to AP’s on the trip or just buy AP’s in advance. We will be making 3+ trips this year so AP’s are definitely in our future. Thanks!

    Hi, Scott! You are headed to two of my home resorts, and I have to tell you, they are two of my absolute favorites. The Copper Creek Villas and Cabins are absolutely gorgeous.

    I would highly recommend the Walt Disney World annual pass. With your Disney Vacation Club discount, I think it's well worth it, and depending on how many days you plan to be at the theme parks on your upcoming trip, you may reach the break even point on your first vacation.

    The pass is activated on your first use, so there's no reason to go to the trouble of purchasing a multi-day pass then having to upgrade during your vacation. You might as well jump right in!

    If you haven't yet, don't forget to take advantage of the DVC Member Lounge, located at Epcot. With complimentary snacks and cold drinks, charging stations, and member services advisors, it's a great way to cool off for a few minutes in the middle of a hot theme park day.

    Have the very best time - on every single one of your upcoming trips!
