As stated by a previous reviewer, SDWAP is not the place it used to be. We used to visit it at least once per year, but ever since they replaced the (free) monorail with a tram ride (complete with typically long lines, brief ride, and extra fees), we just haven't enjoyed it as much. It's also true that the emphasis on raising money seems to have become a bit over the top (prices, opportunities to buy seemingly everywhere).
Anyhow, this is still a worthy cause, but the future ain'...view moret what it used to be, I guess.view less
