Vote of the week: Will you visit a theme park on the Fourth of July?
Written by Robert Niles
America's Independence Day holiday, the Fourth of July, is the biggest day of the year for the theme and amusement park industry. More people might pack top parks like Disneyland on some Christmases or New Years', but collectively, more people visit parks on the Fourth than any other day of the year, thanks to every park in the country being open on the holiday.Tweet

(The Fourth of July weekend is also when we announce the results of our annual Theme Park Insider Awards, honoring the best theme park, new attraction, restaurant and hotel in the industry this year.)
So... are you going to go next weekend? As a theme park fan, do you want to be part of the biggest day of the year? Or... are you the type who visits only when others don't?
And the economy this year... can you afford the trip? Or are you doing something else for the Fourth this year?
Tell us, in the comments, your plans for the Fourth. And, if you are planning to visit a park, share with us your strategy for getting the most out of a very crowded day. Thanks, and have a great weekend!
