I am trying to decide if I want to get an AP for this year. At first it was something I never thought about getting. I have always ignored the AP posts because it never applied to me. I’m from Maryland so I always just thought I was too far away.
I recently made a friend in MD who is even more obsessed with Disney than I am. She has had an AP for the last three years! She is the one that planted the AP seed in my brain.
I was supposed to go to Disney during Irma but that obviously got postponed. So I still have my tickets for that trip. I have another friend that wants me to go with them for a few days. And now I have this new friend with an AP that wants me to go with her.
So now I’m trying to decide if I should just get an AP. I looked at JJT’s excel sheet and it looks like with those three trips I would come out saving just a little bit of money. Of course if I got an AP I would want to go even more!
So I have kind of decided that if I take 4 short trips in a year and get an AP. I would probably spend $3,000+ during the year on Disney. I’m just trying to decide if that is worth it to me. I’m only 23 years old so it’s not like I have a ton of money saved up for these types of things.
Does anyone have any tips on saving money for this? I think if I could find a way to justify 4+ flights to FL I could make the decision a lot easier.
I don’t really understand the other discounts that come with an AP. How often can you get a discount on a value resort?
I’m all ears (lol) for everyone’s opinions and tips! My friends and family would look at me like I was crazy if I told them I was thinking about getting an AP to DW. So thank you all very much!!
