    I knew there was a reason to have a 25 Point package

    Edit - just curious, what is the cost of an annual pass for 'regular' people….and any discounts for seniors (62+)?

    Nope, no discounts for the grands.
    They know you're bringing the grandkids so they know you're gonna pay.
    They do have AAA/CAA discounts but no AARP discounts.
    Military discounts too. Special tickets for Shades of Green guests.
    Ticketsatwork.com also has discounted tickets.


    Regular Annual Pass

    Provides one year of unlimited admission to the four major parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom), plus free parking.

    First time Annual Pass: $648.59 for all ages.
    Renewal Annual Pass: $552.74 for all ages.


    Premium Annual Pass

    Provides one year of unlimited admission to the four major parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom),
    the water parks and DisneyQuest, plus free parking.

    First time Premium Annual Pass: $776.39 for all ages.
    Renewal Premium Annual Pass: $659.24 for all ages.


    Premier Passport

    Good for one year of unlimited admission at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
    It offers the same privileges and discounts as a Premium Annual Pass at Walt Disney World (see above) and a Premium Annual Passport at Disneyland.

    Premier Passport: $1010.82 for all ages.
    There is no renewal discount for the Premier Pass.

    Grayfal,
    How much are maintenance fees for that 25 point contract? I am wanting to pick on up.

    Any ideas on transfer and initiation with Disney? I am not a DVC owner.

    TIA!

    Those 25 point contracts are pricey.
    Lots of competition for them.
    I'd say no less than $100 a point if not more by now.
    The MF's will be cheap though.
    Probably in the range of $150 a year.
    You could bank and borrow them to get a decent vacation
    out of them every 3 years in a studio but other than that
    I'm not sure it's worth owning 25 points just to get the
    discount unless you have 4 kids in tow.

    Keep in mind that the discount is a perk, not a guarantee.
    Disney can take it away at anytime and they do.
    Especially with resale points.
    They've jumped on that separation of classes bandwagon lately.

    This is a great offer -- I just bought one. No senior discount - or any other kind of discount, either. Note that it is also less than the "regular" discounted renewal rate for DVC members. BUT - this is something to consider. Since you don't have to tack it on to an existing AP, you can activate it when you get there and not pay for the gap between when your current AP expires and the start of your next trip. This might be significant, depending on your situation.

    I do not own one - but know people who do.
    as Chris said, the maint fee would be cheap.

    The AAA discount is 10% on Annual Passes.....I didn't know, so I didn't get the discount this time around. If I renew, I would get 30% from Disney & an additional 10% if I go through AAA.

    BTW, I'm still keeping track of how many times you annoy me.

    I don't think you can combine the discounts.
    If you buy your tickets from AAA those are different discounts.
    They do sell the FL resident tickets at AAA.

    I believe you have to purchase the DVC tickets from member services.

    Hmmmm, that's what I was told at Disney's guest services when I purchased my pass.....Renew discount of 30% & 10% more if you purchase from AAA. But, since I've never actually done it, who knows?
