Silver Dollar City's An Old Time Christmas - Evening-before Admission?Like Dollywood?
From Tim ChatlosDoes Silver Dollar City offer any sort of evening-before admission for their "An Old Time Christmas" event? I know Dollywood has an after-6:00PM admission during their Christmas event and I was wondering if Silver Dollar City did the same.

From James RaoI don't remember them having a special ticket rate to An Old Time Christmas, but then I have always had a season pass so I don't pay much attention to ticket deals. I do remember that during peak summer season they had an evening discount and currently they are selling tickets that allow you to come to the park after 3:00 in the afternoon on your first day then come back for free the following day, so it is possible they will have some special deal during the Christmas festival as well.

Your best bet is to fire off an email using the Contact Us link on the park's website.
From Tim ChatlosI wrote to the park and they do offer an after-7:00PM admission during An Old Time Christmas. These night-before admissions at Silver Dollar City and Dollywood are such a nice touch. I wish more parks would do something like this.

From James RaoThanks, Tim, for the feedback. I am so used to my season tickets, I just never really keep track of any ticket deals they offer.

However, with the park only being open until 9:00 or 9:30 during the Christmas season, I hope the after 7 PM ticket is really cheap! =)
From Tim ChatlosThe evening before is included with a one-day general admission ticket, so it acts as a nice "preview" visit before the proper full day.

I would love to live close enough to Silver Dollar City to have a season pass there.
From James RaoOkay, I get it. Like their "after-3:00" ticket sale going right now. The next day is included with your ticket price. Yep, great deal.

Since you will be in the area overnight, you might look into the Comfort Suites on Gretna. I always stay there. Great place, great staff, great pool, and while it is close to SDC, it is off the beaten path a bit so you won't get stuck in too much downtown Branson traffic.
