    Default Two short trips

    Instead of going next year for our usual 8-9 day trip, we are thinking of doing 2 short trips 4-5 days each possibly about 3-4 months apart. What is the best options for park tickets? Buying two 4-day tickets is much more expensive than buying an 8-day ticket, but I don't think I can buy an 8-day ticket because I think they expire after 14 days. Any thoughts on how to this the cheapest way possible?
    Thank you

    This is from a thread back in April. Link here in case you want the full context. The prices I'm using do not include tax, whereas Bud's numbers above do.

    _____________________
    There is no fixed number of days where break even occurs. It depends on the number of trips planned during the year and the length of those trips.

    Linda's math is correct, but only for the upper limit of the range.

    At the lower limit, the number is 8 if we're talking only two trips. Two, four day trips would require 2 separate tickets at $455 (you do need to use the price for hoppers, since that's equivalent to having an AP), so total of $910. A 4 day plus a 3 day ticket is $825, just under the $849 AP.

    The absolute lower limit is 7 days - three 2day trips and a 1day trip. 3 2day hoppers is $822. Another day trip puts you over the breakeven point.

    So the breakeven range is from 7 to 19 days, depending on how many trips and how long each trip is.

    Note, this is for US tickets only. UK has different length tickets with a different pricing structure. I'm not very familiar with that.

    The Annual pass also includes parking at the parks if you are driving, and you get a small discount at some restaurants and stores.

    In addition, if you buy and annual pass, you can plan your next trip to be just before the pass expires, and get another trip out of it!
