My First Trip to Water Country USA®

Excited to check out Water Country USA?  Don’t forget to look at the Busch Gardens Williamsburg Coupons!

My First Trip to Water Country USA

My name is Little Buddy and this summer I had the chance to take my first trip to Water Country USA® in Williamsburg, VA. My Mommy, Grandma and Aunt Laura have a Busch Gardens + Water Country USA 2-Park, One Year Pass so we can go as many times as we want and not even pay for parking!

We drove to the park and got a spot pretty close to the front.  After my mom slathered us all with sunscreen (and put on my VERY cool hat), we gathered our bags and went inside the park.  It was so clean (plenty of garbage cans for my diapers!) and lots of shade for me to sit in.

The first place we went was Cow-A-Bunga.   My big brother and sister got to play in the water and go down the two water slides (one in an inner tube!).  The water is very shallow so all ages of kids could play in it. I got to sit in the shade to sleep and eat and the adults took turns taking care of me.

Next we went to Kritter Korral.  My brother LOVES this place because they have a giant whale slide and an elephant that squirts you.  At the shallow end they have a bunch of inner tubes like in this picture.  One side you fit all the way through and the other side little people can sit in without falling!  Mommy let my brother hold me long enough for Aunt Laura to take a picture of all three of us!

P being pulled

Then he figured out the most relaxing way to float around was to have our sister pull him.  So he leaned back and made her do all the work!

Then we went over to Surfer’s Bay, which is their HUGE wave pool.  We got free life vests for everyone and went to relax and float. I almost fell asleep it was so peaceful.  Then the waves started and everyone laughed and jumped up and down in the water.

My brother wanted to go on his first big ride so he and Aunt Laura went and rode Big Daddy Falls.  You can fit up to six people in the inner tube so our whole family will be able to go once I am bigger!  Aunt Laura didn’t want to get her phone wet so we don’t have any pictures.

For our last trip we went to the Lazy River.  Aunt Laura and my brother got a double tube and floated in the sun while we played in the pool.  She said they did something called “math problems” while they were floating around.  It looked very relaxing and when I am big enough I will check it out!

Looking at the map on our way out there were still LOTS of parts of the park we didn’t see.  There should be lots of fun rides for many years to come!

My first Water Country Visit

I am so excited to go back next year!

Busch Gardens Williamsburg Christmas Town Discount July 2015

Busch Gardens Christmas Town Discounts Post

I can’t even believe I am writing this.  It’s July.  I know that “Christmas in July” is a thing but still.

We have our first discount for Christmas Town 2015.

Busch Gardens Christmas Town begins Nov. 27, and for the first time the event will extend into January, with Jan. 1-3 added to the operating schedule.

Active Busch Gardens pass members can get the best deal of the season starting July 1 by purchasing a Christmas Town Pass online for $25, a $10 savings off the general admission price to Christmas Town. The Christmas Town Pass allows unlimited admission to Christmas Town during regular operating days from Nov. 27 through Jan. 3. Active pass members also receive their regular membership benefits like free parking and discounts on in-park dining and merchandise. The price of the pass increases to $30 on Aug. 1.

“This offer is the best deal of the season for pass members,” said Vice President of Marketing Dan Dipiazzo. “The Christmas Town Pass is a great reason to consider becoming a pass member as the pass offers a significant discount over the regular Christmas Town admission price.”

10 Ways To Save Money at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Ways to Save Money at Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Theme parks can be crazy expensive.  And once you pay to get in the expenses just keep coming- food, drinks, experiences, souvenirs, pictures- it can be insane.  Busch Gardens Williamsburg is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.  The shows and food are fantastic and the rides are very fun.  So when I go I try to get the best deal possible- I don’t want wallet regret after I leave the park!

So from my trips here are Ten Ways To Save Money at Busch Gardens Williamsburg:

Bring Your Own Water Bottle

You can bring your own water bottle into the park.  With bottled water being $2.99 each staying hydrated at the park can be a challenge.  Fill up at the water fountains and drink all day!

Busch Gardens Military Discounts– Waves of Honor or Shop on Base

Busch Gardens Williamsburg participates in the Waves of Honor program.  Active military members can get a free ticket for themselves and their dependents.  Or stop in to your travel office on Base!

Busch Gardens Williamsburg Pre-School Pass– Get your 3 – 5 year old in for FREE!

Before May 31st each year get the FREE Busch Gardens Williamsburg Pre-School Pass good for the entire summer.  If your child is between the ages of three and five just sign up and show proof of age at the park.  Then you get a FREE Fun Pass for the summer!

Buy the Souvenir Cup- And Use It For Years

Each year at the park they have a Souvenir Cup available.  If you buy it filled I believe it’s around $7.  Once you buy it you get refills on soda for $.99 for the rest of the season and Icee refills are $1.29 (my favorite).   But after that season you can bring it back year after year for $1.29 refills.  This is a significant savings over the soda prices in the park.  They also have insulated mugs for hot chocolate and wassail during Christmas Town!

Download the App– Know the park and show times

When you get to the park you want to be sure to maximize what you can get done in that limited time.  One of the best parts about the park are the shows (don’t miss Pet Shenanigans in Ireland)!   When you download the app you have all the show times right in front of you.  Also included are a map, info on all the restaurants, a car finder (so you don’t have to remember), information on the weather and more.  Since you don’t want to spend the day just walking take a few minutes and plot out a course.  The park is a large circle so you can work from one side to the other.

Pre-Buy A Meal Deal On-line– Save on Food Before You Get To The Park

If you do want to eat in the park consider purchasing meals ahead of time.  They actually have a great deal on their site– you get lunch, dinner and the souvenir cup for $30.  That way you don’t overspend at the park.  And most of the meals are big enough you could easily split them!

Strategically Purchase Season Tickets– To Help With Parking Costs

This is the biggest opportunity to save money.  And can get confusing if you don’t understand the tickets.

When it comes down to it these are the two most common season tickets:

Busch Gardens Fun Card$75– Allows you unlimited access to Busch Gardens through September 7th ($15 parking is NOT included)

Busch Gardens 1-Park, One Year– $132 -includes unlimited free parking, in-park discounts on merchandise and food, and Christmas Town Discounts

How to Choose:

Parking is $15 every time you go to the park.  So if your family only plans on attending the park over the summer (not Howl O’Scream- which isn’t great for young kids) a mixture of season tickets and fun passes is the way to go!

A Family of Four Planning 3 Visits or Less: 4 Fun Passes are $300.  Parking will be $15 each time you go to the park.  So if you go to the park 3 times the total cost for entrance would be $345.  More than that see the next scenario.

A Family of Four with Four Visits or More: 3 Fun Passes and 1 Season Ticket is $357.  This would allow you into the park as many visits as you would like with parking included as well as a 10% discount on anything you buy in the park.  No additional money would be needed to get into the park.

Use Busch Gardens Williamsburg Coupons– For Discounts on Single Day Tickets

While discounts are difficult to find on season tickets, coupon codes for single day tickets are all over the place.  I keep an updated list of them here.  If you are only going for one day this is the way to go!

Use the Picnic Area

Picnic areas are available outside the park adjacent to the entrance/exit plaza. It’s not a long walk at all.  So pack a picnic meal, exit the park and have your lunch outside.  They will stamp your hand for re-admittance so you can go back in.

Watch Their Twitter Page

This may seem like a strange suggestion but Busch Gardens uses their twitter feed to communicate their most urgent information. And two of those things could REALLY affect you.  Occasionally the park has to close due to inclement weather (which most likely you would be able to tell before leaving your house).  The other, however, is when the park is at capacity.  I have had friends wait in line outside the park for an hour only to be told they can’t go in.  So just check their twitter feed before you leave- it might save you a trip!

Busch Gardens Williamsburg Food and Wine Festival 2015

Busch Gardens Cup

This past Friday Busch Gardens Williamsburg invited me and a friend to come and check out some of their new offerings at the Food & Wine Festival.

Joel Hand Picture

We got our menu and also decided to try the cashless wristbands for the first time.  It was kind of fun.  Cashiers just scanned our wristband instead of us pulling out our debit cards and it is only one transaction on my account instead of a bunch of little ones.  Items in the festival cost on average probably $5 and you would have to scan your card at EVERY booth.
