Published: September 4, 2012 at 2:08 PMI got a Florida resident Seasonal Pass this past weekend for DW. I paid $120 down and only have to pay $20 a month for the next 11 months. There are a few block out dates, but not too many. I park hopped Saturday and Sunday which would have cost me $232, so I am ahead of the game already. And I'll be going back every weekend, so it is an awesome deal if you live close by.
I will be getting a similar deal for Universal this weekend. Man, I love Florida!

Published: September 4, 2012 at 3:44 PMYou can get parking on a Regular or Gold pass. It is not listed on the initial page, but if you go to buy, it will show you other passes. For example, the regular with parking is $121.99 or 6 Payments of $20.33. You don't have to buy the platinum to get parking.
Published: September 4, 2012 at 3:45 PMI bought my 2013 SF Great Adventure SP Sunday. Renewal was only 59.99, and included a free "upgrade" to Premium..Waterpark included. I've actually never been to GAdv's waterpark OR Safari, so ONE of those streaks will probably end in 2013. Guess which? I understand other SF parks are also offering a Gold pass, which apparently includes parking at other SF parks. GAdv is not offering that option, so I had to spring for parking. $60, valid only there. I was gonna wait until October to add parking, but I figured hey, it's SF..the price could jump to $80 tomorrow. It seems like a lot, but ya gotta realize it's $22 for daily parking, and I go at least 9-10 times a season. The Pass, natcherly(that was intentional, Dom!) is good at all SF parks.
Published: September 5, 2012 at 7:40 AMThere is still 4 more months left in 2012. I wonder why they don't offer a combo pass to include the 2012 and 2013 so you can use the season pass immediately.
As for price increases in 2013, based on previous experience, Knott's hasn't increased their prices when compared with Disney. It is barely 10% higher when I bought a season pass 2 years ago at $59.99.
