New DVC members since end of october. :-)
Before DVC, we usually stayed about 5 days at a WDW resort and got the length of stay tickets with it.
For next year, I was thinking on staying at WDW for 7 days, but probably still only visit the park a couple of days, doing some other sightseeing in the area or waterparks the other days.
Don't think I would need PAP, since the only added value for me would be the water park admission, but during our stay, we would probably not visit the water parks more than once or twice, so it still would be cheaper to pay separate admission there with the DVC discount.
So my ticket options would probably be:
a) Annual Pass with DVC discount: $389
b) 10 Day Magic Your Way-Pass with Parkhopper, Waterparks and No Expiration: $556
This leaves me with either a) or b).
While at a glance, a) looks cheaper, if I only use it for 5 days on my next year's visit and not sure if I can make my next visit after that within the validity of the AP, this leaves me with a daily cost of $77.80.
With b), I can use as many days I like on my first visit and use the remaining on any future visit, so the daily cost here would only be $55.60.
Is my calculation right or did I forget something?
