Just a question to those that frequent the year round parks.
When Halloween ends and all the seasonal parks close up shop , do the year round parks put up Thanksgiving decor during November and Christmas decor during December? How about Easter decor as well?

At Knotts, they begin assembling the mazes in July, full swing in August/september, and then they put up all the decorations in september. Then they take all that stuff down in a few weeks (Curse of the spider was just disassembled 2 weeks ago). For Thanksgiving they just have a lot of choices for dinners. They begin theming for christmas just before Thanksgiving, and take it down in January. For Easter they have a few kiddie mazes, not much at all. Then the big summer theme comes into town, last year Red White and Cool, in past years it has been stuff like Xtreme summer, etc.
Sea World installed a Norman Rockwell themed display throughout the Orlando park. Its was very tasteful. USF had many nice decorations in the New York section, and IOA was decked out across the boards.
Of course Disney MGM had the 5 million lites display by Star Tours, and the other parks had many decorations. The Boardwalk was exceptional, with a beautiful merry go round model and plenty of other holiday decorations in the hotels and boardwalk.

Silver Dollar City has an amazing christmas display! If I remember correctly, they said they had over 4 million christmas lights throughout the park! The employees are deckedout as elves, there are christmas decorations everywhere, and they even have carolers! It really made the trip totally worth it, even if I wouldnt've been able to ride the coasters!
I love that park :)

Efteling, Europa-Park and Phantasialand have a special winter opening. During two months the parks are completely re-themed in winter style. Efteling looks pretty good to me, and I'm going to Europa-Park next week.

At MIA they always light a giant Christmas tree on Timbers' lift. I've determined that its impossible to get a perfect balance of day/night in the photo, but here's a shot of it in the total dark.

52 visits to 4 CF parks in '02 with a season pass, free. Knowing I saved $1603, priceless.
IoA/USF are pretty highly decorated....I especially like the kiddie rides that (it seems) have been permanently installed at CityWalk...
If we ever get our stuff posted somewhere, we have LOTS of pics of the *theming*, rofl...
Here's where I put in a shameless plug for the TR, coming soon..."sledding in Orlando"....;)
