Busch Gardens Williamsburg Tickets and Dining

Friday, January 10, 2020 6:58 AM

Hi

We are planning to visit Busch Gardens Williamsburg in August and we found that there is a sale until January 17 for $61.99 per ticket. I was told that once the park is closer to its opening day in May, deals will start to show up on Groupon and other sites. We want to buy 4 tickets, but because our kids don't eat a lot we want to purchase only two dining plans, which are usually cheaper to buy combine with the tickets, but right now the only dining plans for sale are the all year dining plan.

We just comeback from Busch Gardens Tampa and SeaWorld Orlando, and they didn't have any issues with just my wife and I having the dining plan, is this the case in Busch Gardens Williamsburg? because I read somewhere that there is no meal sharing allow at that park. Are they going to walk to my table and check if my kids paid for what they are eating?

So are tickets priced at $61.99 a great deal that we should grab before Jan 17 or we will get better deals later on in sites like Groupon?

Should we buy two tickets for $61.99 before Jan 17, and wait for when the one day dining becomes available for purchasing, so we can get the one day ticket combined with all day dining for the other two tickets?

I hope some could help thanks!

How long are you planning to be in the area? I ask because there is a 7 day “flex” ticket that includes admission and parking to BGW, Water Country USA, and Colonial Williamsburg. For an additional cost, and only buying through Colonial Williamsburg you can add admission to Jamestown and Yorktown. The break even point point is usually 4-5 days, I used to do this until I lucked into a perpetual platinum pass to the Sea World parks for $18 a month (I now just pick up a CW AP) when I go for my week long visits.

It’s a pretty great vacation to be able to hop from park to park, my average day is opening the water park and staying till 12-1 pm, showering back at the hotel, heading to CW to catch a program/tour some houses midday, leaving around 4-5 and spending the evening at BGW seeing a show and riding the coasters.

It is strictly against the rules to share the All Day Dining (assuming that's what you're talking about) at BGT and SWO. Its just very difficult for the employees to police.

Trackmaster do you feel $61.99 per ticket is a great deal or is better to wait?

Last year, we paid $100/ticket for one-day pass and all-day dining.
