Vote of the Week: Thinking ahead to the holidays
Written by Robert Niles
Thinking about vacations is a form of mental time travel — for those moments, you live in the future. So even though the calendar reads "July," theme parks fans who plan ahead are already thinking about Halloween and Christmas.
As they do every summer, the major theme parks have begun to put tickets on sale for their fall and winter holiday events. Walt Disney World is selling tickets to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. Disneyland is in pre-sale to Annual Passholders for its Mickey’s Halloween Party tickets, and speculation continues that the resort will add a hard-ticket Christmas party, too — this year or next.
Universal Orlando has put tickets on sale for its Halloween Horror Nights, and tickets for the Hollywood version should go on sale soon. Knott's Berry Farm just revealed its 2013 Halloween Haunt line-up and is selling tickets to the event now, too.
Throw in events at many other regional theme and amusement parks around the country, and fans won't lack options for special holiday events in the parks.
So... are you planning to go?
It's time for our Vote of the Week. Please tell us your holiday theme park plans. Are you planning to attend one of these "hard-ticket" holiday events? If not, will you be visiting a theme park during these seasons anyway? Or are you skipping the parks this holiday season? Please select the option that best describes your plans.
