This is the 2nd year we're enjoying all the benefits that come with the lil' green annual pass. You definitely get your money's worth if you live close by - especially if you purchase online. :) Our 5 year old loves the Miniland, the movies, Ranger Pursuit, and the various size building ""sandboxes"" where he has all the bricks at his disposal. The annual pass lets you come and go whenever you want, bypassing the line every time. You get to participate in all the themed activities LDC has throughout the year. You also get a nice 10% discount in the shop and food court.
LDC does seem to work hard at maintaining and improving the facility. Last year's addition (Forest Ranger Pursuit) didn't disappoint. I am really looking forward to the next one. :)
