  1. I miss the days of non expiration tickets. It was nice to buy a 10 day ticket and do several short trips in a year. All of this ridiculous magic your way crap is insane. Disney basically steals your money if you can’t use all of your days. How magical is that? Not to mention charging more to get into MK. Because you know, they really need that extra few bucks.

        1. That will work. Kind of like saying “have a nice day”. So, when someone says to me, “hey Ken, we’re going to WDW next week.” I will now smile and reply back, “great. Have a lot of money.”
