Hello--My family is planning a visit to Bush Gardens Tampa on Christmas Day, '06. Does anyone know how crowds are for this day? Your input is much appreciated.

The rule of thumb is that after a certain time.....hell breaks loose. I would recomend the day before christmas instead.

Hmmm. Actually, we are disembarking from a cruise on Christmas Eve (morning). Therefore, if we went the day before--realistically, we wouldn't make it there until that afternoon. Wouldn't it be better to hit the park when it OPENS on Christmas day as opossed to going in the afternoon on the day before? Thanks.

I was wondering the same thing...

So far I've heard crowds are horrible---but not AS BAD as they are at WDW.

No, not near as bad as ANY Orlando park...why? There's more parks in Orlando...but still pretty bad. The best day for a holiday I thought was New Years Day....kind of quiet.
