Well I'd love to get down to KI for my son and I to ride Banshee but it will depend I guess. If nothing exciting comes up, probably just Cedar Point. (homepark)

Likely Great Adventure Opening Day, which may or may not be April 5. Unless I get an invitation for something else before then (Dollywood?)

Not a clue. It was almost Hershey, but we missed 2014 by a day and a half.

Next year I'll try to do NYE at Epcot, so I can be first.

Come to think of it, I've been to 8 parks this year, which is 7 more than I went to in all of 2013. Almost went to Kemah Boardwalk yesterday, but the coaster is closed for maintenance.

Epcot, on Feb 9th. Then other Disney magic thru feb 15th.
Btw, I can't tell you what a nightmare it's been trying to load our Magic Bands with parks, dining, and fast passes. I'm not a Disney idiot, by any stretch of the imagination, but they're sure making me feel like one. I'm gonna find that old CB news thread and post my experience when all's said and done.

Kings Island is up in the air for my first park. For sure the first park will be Cedar Point. 4th opening day in a row!

By all means, start a new thread on Disney bands/FP. It's worth talking about.

Unfortunately they moved opening day a week later to April 12th. I never expected it to be that late after they opened March 23rd last year (I thought it would either be March 29th or April 5th).

For me it's either going to be Great Adventure on April 13th since usually Sunday of opening weekend has very low crowds. I'm somewhat considering going to Busch Gardens Williamsburg in March since they open 4 weeks earlier than Great Adventure and it would be nice to not have to wait until mid April to start riding coasters again.

Dollywood in April for the festival of nations. It's only been a little more then a month since my last coaster (thunderhead @ Dollywood.) the off season is easier to endure when it's less then four months.


2017 Trips: WDW, Dollywood, Cedar Point, KI, SDC, BGW, BGT, SWO, Universal Orlando

Is that definite, Yoshii? I haven't seen anything from the park. They have teacher/education events on the 12th. It would kinda surprise me if they were doing that type of stuff Opening Weekend.

Yes, the entire calendar can be seen here (9th post on that page):

For some reason I couldn't link directly to the photo of the operating calendar. The reason I think they have events planned on opening day is because they kept changing it. It was supposed to be in March (no date specified but the park's website originally said "See You In March"), then they moved it April 12th, back to April 5th and then again to April 12th. I guess they planned those events back when they thought opening day would be April 5th or March.

Another change is no Friday night Fright Fest operating days in September, although I can understand why. I went to all 3 of them last year and it was walk ons the entire time. They are also open November 1st and 2nd this year.
