That's our vote of the week this week on Theme Park Insider: How far in advance do you start planning your theme park vacation?
We're not talking about random day trips to parks near you, but about overnight vacations instead. Maybe they're to a nearby park. Maybe they're to a park across the country or around the world. We've got a nice page here on the site with some general theme park vacation planning tips, but I know that different people do that planning in very different timeframes. Some readers make vacation planning a year-long process. Others believe in spontaneity (or last-minute discounts), and throw the whole thing together in a day or two.
Which type of theme park vacation planner are you?
Please share your favorite vacation planning tips, in the comments. And, as always, thank you for reading Theme Park Insider!Tweet
We usually save a few hundred by doing it this was as opposed to purchasing everything separately. They usually throw in a few perks as well. Last time they gave us a room upgrade at no charge. We will be going back in Summer 2012 for an 8 day stay at the Hard Rock.
I think we may do a 2 park VIP tour this time, although I probably know more trivia and facts about the parks than some of the tour guides.... :)
Booking flights today, will pay off room before arriving, and will buy park tickets next month. I love having everything paid for in advance, but we drug big time this year.
Short of a time table, I have dinner, lunch, shows, hours, locations etc planned ahead. But it's almost a hobby to me.
