The Disneyland annual passport tiers are currently $619, $849 and $1049. Here's an article listing reasons they were increased: demand, revenue, spending, overcrowding, parking, experience, and Star Wars Land.

They're not high enough. Overcrowding is the problem. We accidentally went during "AP Days" (February 10 to March 9 this year) when we expected the park to be deserted, but it wasn't. Disney freaks were everywhere absorbing discounted food and exclusive merch. As a Californian I shouldn't complain, but I really felt sorry for the out-of-staters who stoically faced a week of long lines.

Here's a place to start if you're hoping to beat the system. I'm told the 2 weeks of statewide testing every spring is promising. In my experience, rain closes a few rides, but all the locals race home to board up their windows.

Impressive. My earliest Disneyland memory is from a rain day: a friendly castmember replaced my spilled popcorn, we were the only people in sight.

I may have missed it in the wine thread, but continuous passholding means you're in Club 33 or on the wait list? What other perks have you seen over the decades?

I definitely do not recommend walking around like the living dead all morning on Grad Night, especially if your high school's more than several hours away, instead consider some teenage gambling and booze cruise if they still allow them. I've heard stories. The best way to do Disney after the rabble is sent home is on a corporate retreat, listing yourself as the invitee's "family" if you can swing it.

David Koenig wrote in Mouse Tales about an autistic kid whose parents got him an annual passport because it was truly the cheapest care option. "Spin Man" spent all day on the teacups until he was finally banned for fighting over "his" teacup.

Here's a guy who's never missed a day since 2012. Free parking and some food for $1049 a year. Hopefully he's not demanding the front seat all day on the Indy ride.

I have at various times in the past been an annual passholder at Disneyland, Walt Disney World, LEGOland Florida, and Universal Studios Orlando. At the moment I have none of them.

I had the privilege of meeting him once. I have a special needs sister, so I totally get this.
