WDW Platinum Pass is $1,191.74.

Eek!

I’ll just renew my DVC Gold pass for WDW and pay as I go at Disneyland.
I am one of those insane people that has a Premier Passport. Unlike many of the other Disneyland annual passes, it cannot be paid on the installment plan. Ouch!

I live near Disneyland and take at least two trips to WDW annually. My WDW trips are at least nine days.

The most expensive Disneyland ONLY Annual Pass (no blackout dates) is $1521.41 (with sales tax). That includes MaxPass, parking & AP discounts. If I visit WDW for at least nine days, I might was well upgrade to the Premier AP and have the park-hopper AND the AP discount.

The upgrade from a top-tier WDW to include a DLR pass is nearly $1000. The upgrade from a DLR Signature pass to include WDW with all the perks is just over $600.00.

$1521.41 for the Disneyland Resort Signature Plus Pass covers two theme parks and includes MaxPass, parking & discounts.

$1298.24 for Walt Disney World Platinum Plus Pass covers four theme parks, 2 Disney water parks, ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex and Disney’s Oak Trail Golf, Photopass downloads, parking & discounts.

It is a good thing that I am a DVC member and love visiting Disney...

Back when it was reasonable I had this pass. I worked in Orange County CA and lived it Atlanta so it worked well for me but...

It's not worth that price!

I think it only makes sense for someone who lives near Disneyland and takes at least two WDW trips a year, plus visits a lot during blackout times.

Using Kim's description of waiting for hours for minutes of attraction time, maybe they should price the passes per minute of actual attraction time. That'll encourage them to get the lines down.

they would make the line interactive [game like space mtn or tt] and charge for that too saying it was an attraction also.
