    A friend of mine who is preparing to leave Disney World tomorrow had purchased a 7 day park hopper. They know they are going to be returning in January for a few days and possibly in October as well, and were thinking of upgrading to an AP. She asked what the current "break" point was to make it worth going from a park hopper pass to an annual pass. It *used* to be 10 days, but I'm guessing that may be outdated information. Does anyone know what it is currently?

    If they plan to go in Jan and possibly this Oct, then the AP would be the way to go

    LOL, I did manage to tell them that much. Even if the "10-day" rule of thumb went up significantly, it would be worth it with two more trips within the year...I was just wondering what the "magic number" was...

    Hey, I have a few minutes of procrastination left...perhaps I'll go do math!

    You need to factor in the free parking if not staying onsite

    A 10 day park hopper is $399.38 that includes tax

    An annual pass (which includes park hopper feature) Plus free parking is $611.31

    Now you really can't compare the two. As the 10 day ticket would expire 14 days after first use (unless you add the no expiration option in). So if you bought a 10 day ticket for this trip, it's $399.38 and then in less than a year, you buy another 10 day ticket, you are spending another $399.38. Makes more sense to buy the AP.

    Now if you absolutely cannot fit 2 trips in during a 365 day period, then the AP would be a waste.

    The AP works for me as I always manage to squeeze the most out of it!

    So, is a 10-day pass the most Disney sells? I don't see anything beyond that on their website...and they don't even give you the "no expiration" option anymore, you have to call for it...

    For US residents, the 10 day is the longest ticket they sell. And you can do the no expiration option in person as well.

    I thought I read that the no expiration option either had or was going away.

    Disney says it is not going away but they are not advertising it.
