Well it looks like Im coming down here this year. Looking around for things to do for the week before the 4th and I stumbled on the fact that a 7 day unlimited park hopper and parking pass to BGE, WCUSA, and Colonial Williamsburg is $93 if you buy it online. Then I found a local hotel that is offering a free night if you stay 3.

That more then made up my mind, that is a fantastic deal not to mention this place is one of my favorite places to visit anyways. My brother will be going with me (and not possessing a CF Platinum Pass) so a quick trip to KD on the way back is out of the question, but we will be spending a day at KI and spending the night in Cincianatti on the way out and then spending the day at CP on the 4th on the way back.

I would say this year is definitely starting off right.. Except for one day where we had a decent amount of rain, BGE has been quite full and even closed the doors once briefly due to all the lots being full (which amounts to over 25K people in park typically).

This is week 1 of locals spring break here in Hampton Roads area, im curious what the 2nd week of locals spring break will bring.
