To receive the best available AAA Member discount, attraction and movie tickets should be purchased in advance at your local AAA store. Your local store may not stock every ticket type at all times, so it is best to contact the store in advance of your visit to confirm ticket availability and current discount offers. Tickets purchased online would offer you the next best available discount, and may have applicable shipping and handling or service fees associated with each purchase. Showing your AAA membership card at a park gate will still offer you savings at participating attractions, however the savings will not be as significant as in-store or online ticket purchases. Please note that not all attractions have AAA Member discounts available at the gate.

Travelers who have not applied for passports should plan at the least, 10 to 12 weeks for standard passport processing and two to three weeks for expedited processing.
This is an increase over our earlier ten-week turnaround time.
Applying as far in advance as possible is always the best advice, and not needing to expedite saves money.
Complete information on how to apply for a passport is available at the Consular Affairs website, by clicking on this link.
You can use your original birth certificate, or a copy with the raised seal. Keep in mind the relaxed rules allowing the photo ID and proof of application, are good only for leaving and re-entering the United States. Mexico, Canada and other countries still require proof of U.S. citizenship -- usually a birth certificate -- before travelers can enter the country. Other countries have their own entry-exit requirements that frequently mandate a passport even if the U.S. does not. The State Department has reported many cases where travelers are denied boarding at U.S. airports or refused entry to foreign countries because of the requirements. The Jamaican embassy confirms that a birth certificate, government-issued photo ID and proof of passport application from the U.S. State Department will satisfy its requirements. Always check the entry requirements for the specific country you are traveling to. Here is a helpful link to get you started.
You can get an official copy from the Office of Vital Statistics in the town where you were born.
