My first long trip was in 98 and I did no research whatsoever. We got length of stay passes when we could have bought an AP for less. We stayed at All Star Sports at rack rates when we could have stayed at a moderate for about the same price with an AP discount. Had it not been for a sign at the check in counter I never would have known about the resort guest preview of AK. When I think of all the money wasted and things left undone on that 5 day trip it just makes me sick to my stomach.
But I learned from my mistakes. When we did the Disney cruise I researched it for nearly a year. There was no stone left unturned on that vacation.
Can, I ask how you calculate that AP would be cheaper than buying per night. I was just looking and AP is $470/person while staying 10 days or less would never total anywhere near this for tickets. I may be wrong or maybe you stayed longer than 10 nights, just wondering (not trying to be a smart a)...:wave:
I have been to Disney quite a few times and never considered this option but maybe its the way to go, we always stay at POP and go for 10 days.
