I am really not sure what to do here......................

So, stupidly, I bought my AP pass earlier this year. Muffin, however, has not yet purchased one. Are there any disadvantages to just getting the Gold pass? We seriously do not want to be there during hristmas or Thanksgiving week and it would save a nice chunk of change. What am I not seeing here?

We usually get the gold pass -- really no disadvantage if you aren't planning to be there for Thanksgiving/Christmas. One of the perks of DVC ownership!!

We usually get the Gold Pass, though the discount last year for the Premium made it the same as the Gold so we got it just this once.

Thanks, Cam!! This year the discount is not the same at all and I just wanted to make sure we weren't missing anything significant other than the blackout dates.

We usually get the gold pass as well. It's the same except for the blackout dates, so as long as you won't be going at Thanksgiving or Christmas it should be fine.

Thanks, Donna! I sure wish I knew we were joining DVC before I bought my AP!! At least Muffin will get a good discount though!
