I'm happy and excited that there's a chance to renew! And to be honest, I’m not upset about the prices going up. I guess I’m numb to that or expect them to go up but I’m bummed about the blockout dates as Christmas (in general) is my favorite time of the year. Okay I know everyone says that but I like REALLY love Christmas. I celebrate Christmas in July, keep my tree up well into February and even wrote a Christmas cookbook. I do get that it’s business and their busiest time. They care about money and it’s fair. Will I be buying tickets for the blockout dates during Christmas & New Year’s week? Nope. I’m sure many other annual pass holders or magic key holders will probably pass on that, too.
