Right now with prices increasing so much every year, we've decided to not renew our Disneyland passes this year. But I will try my best to get a job at Disneyland by next year even if it will be after the holidays.

Have you looked at the monthy prices? They are 0% interest so it spreads out the cost over 12 months without any extra cost.

We used to pay full price up front but this time we did monthly payments and with a family of four, it's too much since we're all in school with my mom included.

Finances and a 6 month old are keeping us from getting down to WDW. We're planning on going the first week in December 2014 though...so saving up until then should be doable...and DS will be a few months shy of 3 years old which gives him free admission.

Thank you all for your well wishes.. It has taken me a while to be able to write this.. its still hard.. I have posted a bit about a group of people we to go Disney with every year.. well the leader of the group and the guy who got us to love Disney as much as we do.. he passed away.. and now I have no idea if we will be able to go to Disney without thinking of him and crying. I have no idea if we will go back and if we do, when. Our 10 year anniversary is about a year from now and I want to go.. but neither of us are sure if we are strong enough to do it.


Sorry.. I don't mean to bring this down, but I just wanted to writ that.. I hope you all don't mind.. the mods can erase if if they wish.

I'm so sorry for your loss. The way you talked about your group going to WDW, it was obviously very special to you. Don't feel bad about mentioning it on here ~ that is why we are here ~ to lean on if you need it!
