I'll be fine with my Prefered AP for the time being. Oh, isn't the Premier AP supposed to come with 8 or 10 free bottled waters or something like that, not that it would change my mind, but it would be a nice addition in the summer time, especially after eating all of that salty theme park food.

I think the pass is a pretty good value, but the timing of its introduction is a but off. Right now the lines are pretty slim after 4PM anyway, so that's not a huge driver. The preferred parking is a nice perk and the extra discounts (if you can get them! they are not always available) are nice.

What would have been a real nice perk would have been an increased discount to the restaurants and a HHN express pass with the ticket!

I personally dont think its worth it. You get huge discounts with a normal AP, and with kids, we take in our own water during the hot months. I hope it works out, but I think that it needs to add say passage to Wet N Wild to get that extra money.

When info about this pass was leaked a few months ago it included early admission to the parks (an hour early) and I would have liked to have seen this perk as an additional feature along with an express pass thrown in for HHN.

If the discounts for the hotels are markedly better, I'll consider upgrading this time next year (already got the HHN tickets, so that's not much of a perk). The preferred parking thing doesn't excite me much. I think the long walk through the garage helps build excitement for the day. The water bottle thing...yeah, that's just weird. The expresses after 4PM are nice, but when I go the parks are usually dead at that point. If they roller that back to 2PM, I'd be chomping at the bit.
