Water Parks:Typhoon Lagoon OR Blizzard BeachAquaticaSplish Splash
I'll be spending a week in May at Cedar Point, make a one-day trip to Canada's Wonderland in June, pop in on Carwinds sometime later in the summer, and hope to hit both Knott's "Scary" Farm and Disneyland in October.
And the planning has just begun...
We will be at the opening of Aquatica. We will breakout our annual waterpark passes and hit Typhoon and Blizzard. As the spouse of a Disney employee we will use the Maingate pass to hit all of the Walt Disney World parks.
Then in July, we are travelling west to San Diego where we will hit the Comic-Con convention. After the convention we are gonna jump on Higway 5 up to Anaheim where we have reservations at Disney's Grand Californian hotel. Three days there will give us time at Disneyland and California Adventure
It's gonna be a great '08 with us hitting the nation's best water parks and theme parks.

along with Hershey Park, maybe some east coast SF parks.
and the hometown highlight: Knotts
Besides old haunts (Xcaret and Xel Ha), my lady and I are going to try for Isla Mujeres, and perhaps Cozumel as well if we have time.
I'm actually going to ignore my own advice from my past trip reports (specifically, leave the laptop and cellphone at home), and will be traveling with my laptop. This way, thanks to the freebie Internet hookup at our hotel, I will be able to post a near-live 'travelogue' to the board while things are still fresh in memory.
Happy travels to the lot of you. ;-)
2007 was the first year I bought an annual pass to Universal Orlando, as I was starting to go down there more often. However, they have not made me to big a fan as of late. Back to the Future is one of my favorite movie series of all time, and the closure of that ride really struck a nerve. Granted I am a fan of the Simpsons as well, but BTTF is a classic, and there was plenty of other space they could put a Simpsons attraction. Now I hear there are rumors that the Terminator will close, which to me, again ranks up their with BTTF. I am already debating whether or not to renew my pass, and if that happens, I guarantee you it will be a while before I set foot in USF again.
We will hit the parks we hit every year,SFGAMMt OlympusSF STL(almost every year)And if the new rides are open by easter we will visit the Mall of America to ride the new rides and see how they improved the park.
And we will be going to FLA this Dec., so we will be visiting these parks alsoMKEPCOTMGMAKUSFIOA BGT
And I plan also on visting for the first time Little Amerika park which is a small park outside of Madison Wisc. that I have never been too but has I think 5 coasters including a wooden coaster that opened at the end of last year.So for my family it should be a great year in visiting theme parks if eveything goes according to plans.
