Stocking stuffers at the Rao household = 2010 season passes to Silver Dollar City (Tom & Huck's River Blast opens in March!), and Friends of the Zoo family passes for the Kansas City Zoo and all its reciprocal partners.

The student lifestyle doesn't allow for Annual Passes, unfortunately.

If Disneyland Paris are still doing their 'upgrade your ticker to an Annual Passport for 35 Euro's' offer I may consider a purchase if I book a trip.

Living in Clearwater, FL (which is a short hop over to Tampa) I'd be stupid not to take advantage of Busch Garden's deal right now for Florida residents - For less than the price for a one day pass, get admission for the rest of 2009 and all of 2010! And that Disney weekday Florida resident pass is too good good to pass up as well (so what if it not good on weekends... I prefer to visit when it's not zoo-like conditions!)

I bought a one night stay at Royal Pacific at Universal Orlando and 7 day passes for my moms Christmas gift. Of course my husband and I get to tag along to.

With the cost getting higher every year, it becomes an annual present now (usually the big one). It is something we enjoy doing together and gets harder to figure out what to get each other all the time. Disneyland is close to our house, and we end up there often.

Last year, we also got Magic Mountain passes, and made it up there a few times. It is a good value (especially for the boys, wanting more on the thrill level), but gets hard to make the trip up there, just to watch them ride.

Disney related gifts are always easy to add in, too. Having the annual pass discount helps - even more this year with the company offering 20 percent of to all pass holders for a couple of months. Also, there is a Disney outlet store just down the street in Fullerton. It has discontinued and other things from promotions that are barely over.

Gift cards for the park usually end up in stockings, too.

Wait, people have to "buy" theme park tickets?
