SDC Holiday Crowds

saw SDC had a Facebook post over the weekend about the nice weather and the crowds, urging people to not show up till after 6:30, said they had added a 5:00 parade.

what was interesting was the over 200 comments following the post.
people were backed up to the edge of Branson
someone had been in line for an hour
someone else countered they had been in line for 2 hours and were nowhere near the parking lots.

one lady was upset and thought SDC management should "do something about it." I wonder just what the heck she thought management could do about it?

From reading the attendance figures on the SDC Fans board, I would strongly suggest that if anyone can go during the week to do so because attendance has been low on Thursday and Fridays.

Wonder what this Wednesday will be like? day before the big holiday weekend will people be traveling in or will they already be there?

our plans were to go out on Thursday long enough to see the lights but looking at the weather forecasts beginning to think that won't happen, not sure if I want to get up at 4:00 in the morning drive 7 hours on Wed and still spend the day at SDC but it would be an option I guess.

I left for work an hour early and took 465 and the line was well before the exit onto 76, I found a way to turn around and get back to 248 and had to take the long way into Reeds Springs, wound up with only 10 minutes to spare before I had to time in,.

I feel sorry for those that werent in line for sdc, wow

We went to SDC Friday 11/22 and used a coupon to get 3 family members in who don't have season passes. We arrived around 530-600, left after 900. It had been drizzling off and on all day, but the temperature was decent with coats on no one was unreasonably cold. The kids had been talking about it all day and were excited to see the lights and ride some rides. We walked most of the park, people were sparse all evening and VERY few rides were open.

We got some delicious and warm cinnamon bread, and enjoyed some wassail and hot chocolate.

I'm not sure how many of the Christmas lights were off, but when we noticed the carousal lights weren't on, were told due to the moisture, there were several lights which were not turned on. (We realized at this point, it was possible we had missed rides which the girls were looking forward to riding may have been open, but didn't have lights on, and weren't active as we went by earlier, so who knows??)

We were apparently on the train during the parade - or there was no parade, not sure which as we never saw any sign of a parade.

I personally missed the old tree. I feel like the grinch saying it outloud, but we were disappointed.

I truly admire those of you who are able to do that, but I personally just would not be able to put myself through all that!
