LEGOLAND Discovery Center/Centre
The LEGOLAND Discovery Center in the Dallas Fort Worth, Texas area, specifically Grapevine, TX, official grand opening is March 30. However, those who purchase an annual pass, can visit the 27th and the 28th of March before the grand opening.
Of course I purchased my annual pass but have questions on what to expect. I'm not concerned paying for an annual pass, but for those who have experienced and/or attended one of these Discovery Centers is it what you expected? I'm one who gets a thrill out of visiting the two local Lego stores around my area....so I'm sure visiting the Discovery Center would bring much more enjoying. Am I overhyping the situation? How's the PAB selection....bigger and different than the local Lego stores? Nonetheless, I can't wait and will take plenty of pictures.

Remember that the LDCs are part of the LEGOLAND group (i.e. Merlin Entertainment), so aren't officially anything to do with the LEGO company; they don't routinely carry the Brand Store 'exclusive' sets for example.
Having said that, the best time to visit one would be on one the opening event days :-)
So it might be worth reigning in the enthusiasm a little; if it's a bit 'meh', you won't be too disappointed, and if it's great you'll have a nice surprise ... and who doesn't like a nice surprise ;-)
Did you go to the LDC then, what did you think of that dreadful music and the giant mechanic waving a screwdriver? I couldn't hear myself think!
I bought loads of sale keyrings as I seemed to have forgotten that keyrings on sale are only a good deal if you wanted them anyway, otherwise buy something that isn't on sale that you actually want!!! (I know now) I did manage to get them off they keyrings though, even if they did have a hole in their head!
