I've spent a little time today looking at the websites for parks that will be along the path of the lunar eclipse on 8/21/17. Six Flags Mid America will not be open, but they will allow people to pay $10 to park in their parking lot to watch the sky. Dollywood is open, but all I could find on their page is special offers at the Dream More resort that includes viewing glasses. WDW is not in the path of totality, but around 3:00pm, the sun will be about 85% blocked by the moon in Orlando.
I'm just sort of surprised there's not something "science-y" happening at Epcot, or a mid-day fireworks show at Magic Kingdom. I checked with Universal Orlando's Matt Korn and nothing is going on there either.
Is this forgotten low hanging fruit, or am I excited over nothing?
