6. Check for special events
Nothing is worse than buying a full-priced day ticket for a park and having to leave early because there’s a special event going on in the evening. If you’re buying your ticket at the park, the Vacation Host or Hostess should inform you of the park closing time before you make your purchase. If you’re buying your ticket online, be sure to check the park hours before purchasing. Nothing is worse than thinking you’ll have an entire day in the park and then getting only a few hours instead.
