Man, I thought the tone of the article was a little nasty, but now after reading the comments I know it was. This pricing does seem a little high but you do have free options just as wonderful included in the park admission to watch fireworks. Annual passes are not extravagantly priced. The value comes down to how often you will use it and the comparison to how you and your family travel. How many days are you going to travel? Will you be in the pen everyday or will you take advantage of many of the wonderful "free" experiences at your resort? Is staying on property beneficial for you? If you do go with the annual pass then the rooms are often very well discounted per night. Plus you save on transportation cost. There are a great many ways to save on your disney vacation. Opting for this negative view on some really nice enhancement trip options seems like complaining for complainings sake. You can't do everything every trip but adding one extra magical experience each time doesn't seem like a bad idea. Maybe this desert party isn't right for you and your size family. That doesn't make it only for the "elite". Stop comparing yourself and your family to others. Stop worrying about what you can't have or do and enjoy what you can.
