Out of state residents were only ever allowed to buy the top tier AP's, paid in full at time of purchase, unless you were DVC. That is nothing new.I really could care less about the pandemic. Got the jab with more or less the understanding that Id get my normal life back and that’s what I’ve done. Don’t even pay attention to it anymore.
I’ve gotten pretty upset with Disney lately though. The complexity of going to the parks and the intrusive ways they try and get money from you is incredibly irritating. Genie+ will be awful and I’m not looking forward to it. But even before that, the removal of magical express, charging for parking at a hotel you’re paying to stay at for already bloated prices, forcing you to use the app for absolutely everything while the app itself seems buggy and unintuitive. (WHY OH WHY can’t I make park reservations right from the app, but instead am kicked to my browser to log in separately?!) and then reservations themselves! While not as bad as Disneyland, they still seem to remove the spontaneous feeling of going to the parks.
Im a Florida local now, so it doesn’t effect me, but the annual passes only being available to local residents just seems mean. My folks had intended on getting passes so they could visit us here in Florida, but after only being able to buy the insanely expensive top tier for out of state guests, we’ve decided that we’re all just going to get universal passes now. It’s less than half the cost and doesn’t come with any of the headache that disney is putting us through.
Didn’t know this, I guess I had assumed it was similar to Disneyland where almost all tiers were available to out of state guests. Thanks for clarifying.Out of state residents were only ever allowed to buy the top tier AP's, paid in full at time of purchase, unless you were DVC. That is nothing new.
