How to Plan for an Amusement Park Vacation

With as expensive as it has become to travel in this country and overseas, those who own theme parks have been offering a variety of different amusement park vacation packages to help entice people to enjoy this kind of vacation with their families. So if you have been thinking about one of the many different offers there are out there you really need to sit down and follow a plan that will help you get the most enjoyment for your money.

Make sure that if you are planning one of these holidays in the future that you do your research on the park or parks you might be interested in visiting. Most of these parks are much like cities with huge areas to cover and lots of things to do and see and they even include some similar hazards you might find with life in the city which will include traffic problems, lots of people, some areas that are better than others, etc.

It's a good idea if you request a guidebook that covers the entire park before you even get there. This will give you time to study the layout of the park and figure out what you want to do and on what days you would like to do these things. Some of these parks, like Disney for instance is going to take you days to see. It's also a good idea to either call the park or go on their website to make sure that they have the rides and attractions that you are looking for as well.

Since these parks have become such a trend in vacationing it is extremely important that you start booking your flight and hotel well in advance. Hotels in the area of these places fill up extremely quickly especially during the summer months. You should also see if the park has certain attractions that accept reservations and make sure to do this as well.

A lot of people believe that when they are choosing an amusement park vacation over some other type of vacation, that they are saving a lot of money. However; a day in one of these parks could end up costing you a lot more than you actually expect.

You can expect to pay $6 for say a hot dog and $5 for a soda so lunch could end up costing you about $20 each and you could end up spending close to $100 a day per person for a day's worth of meals. It might be a good idea to either try to eat prior to and after or see if the park allows you to bring your own food in so you can have a picnic while you are there.

If the amusement park you are going to offers multi-day passes it would be in your best interest to go with this because you will end up spending a lot less than if you just bought a daily pass. For example it costs $60 per adult for a day pass at places like Disney, Universal and Sea World. Those prices drop dramatically if you buy multi-day passes.

It's always a good idea to get a hold of the tourist center in the area and see if they offer any coupons or special discounts for the amusement park or parks in their area. They are the place that can offer you deals that are not being advertised. Sometimes you can find deals where you can save 20 percent off the entrance price a long with meals and other deals.

You can also save money by traveling in the middle of the week. You will save money on your hotel room, your air fare and the lines at the park you are going to will be far shorter than they will be during the weekends and holidays.

You should also consider what you bring with you. Most importantly make sure that the shoes you are going to wear are extremely comfortable. Bring plenty of sunscreen with you because you will be standing in long lines in the sun. Make sure that each person has at least one bottle of water when they come to the park, buying water there will be expensive. Try to bring a lunch but if you can't at least bring your own snacks to have something to munch on. Always consider bringing some sort of light rain gear, you never know how quickly weather can change. And finally, always make sure to grab the park maps the minute you walk into the park and give one to everyone. This is important so that if you split up, you know where to go and find one another.
