General Silver Dollar City Talk / Any Pumpkin Nights / Christmas News?
« on: September 04, 2020, 11:06:05 AM »
I have seen very little on line from SDC this year.   I was wondering about Pumpkin nights and Christmas.  Have they made any information available or hinted at what the offerings will be?  Are the shows gone ? I assume they will try to provide some consolation for what will not be possible do to current c-19 precautions / fears. Has information been released and I have not seen it?

Other Parks / Troubles for Disneyland and WDW in the news.
« on: July 13, 2019, 07:02:49 AM »

Have any of you watched the issues that have arisen in DL over the new additions Galaxys Edge?  Seems the park did not receive the crowds they expected for the billion dollar Star Wars addition, infact when the cracked open the new land June first the bottom dropped out of the park.  Attendance is way down and they are trying to lure folks in.  The internet is a buzz over displeasure for several things DL has done, raised the tickets reported to be 150 per day now as prime time ticket prices, they have built new parking structures but are charging 38 per day to park.   Disneyland had also blocked many of the passholders for fear of punishing crowds but these have been lifted and they have not recouped.  Walt Disney World is opening their Galaxys Edge next month and the hotel reservations are very soft from reports in Disney.

Did Disneys new land fail this hard?  Did the world of Star Wars clash with the formula at Disneyland?  Did Disney finally hit the ceiling with the entrance fee and the audience rebelled?  Whatever the issue its interesting to watch it unfold. 
Any opinions?
It may just be time to book a Disney Trip.........  I bet you will get a good deal in a month or so if WDW addition also flops.

Will this effect SDC thoughts about the future?

I have watched the building of Galaxy s Edge in Disney parks.  It opened last night for select guests and the online folks have reported in.    The article covers opinions and theming in  parks, why and how it is important and how it effects the guests.  Interesting little read.
We are often discussing changes in theming at SDC and what is being retired or left in the past.  Read and see if you dont agree with some of Disneys assertions.  Some are direct comments on the new land but they also cover what they believe makes the customer respond to the efforts they have put out.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / New Festivals, News Ideas!
« on: April 03, 2019, 07:17:07 AM »
I have been a advocate of SDC entering into the festivals with food featured more prominently.  Maybe its because I am getting older and looking for non ride distractions.   What are your opinions and would you participate in a event handled in this manor? The pattern is a ticketed system with choices, you pay one price for a number of tickets and use them as you wish trying food around the park.  Seems this could be used during BBQ festivals and almost any other theme including Christmas.  This would pull more $ out of my pocket and I believe this would add to my day causing me to want to spend more time and money on park.  Would this effect your day in a positive way?
Link provided gives a good idea exactly how they could handle this and still sell the items individually.  What are your thoughts opinions?

How about a new thread to highlight recommended Dining spots in the Branson SDC area.  I am often stumped to choose the next good spot to go and this might be a good place to get a new idea.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / SDC 2019 Operating Hours in December
« on: December 21, 2018, 08:47:10 AM »
I was just looking at the website and it looks like they intend to only open on Friday and Saturday in December 2019, Closed Sun-Thursday.  This is with the exception of the week of Christmas proper.  Well, that information assists in the decision on the seasons' pass.   

This is surprising!  Sundays were always my day to go.

General Silver Dollar City Talk / Food Packages at SDC
« on: December 07, 2018, 07:14:37 AM »
I just came across this on another site I will include the link.  Food package discounts and a perk thrown in, I love this idea and would be one to buy where I otherwise would go back into Branson to eat.  I do think the show perk may be a conflict but a 1 trailblazer ride ( TT excluded) would be a possible and fun addition to this idea.  Thoughts?

Construction/Rumors / Retire the Old Tree ! I said it, discuss....
« on: November 28, 2018, 07:59:44 PM »
I was noticing how it got the cold shoulder and it was shoved off in the corner this season.
In fact, the efforts seemed to go mostly into Midtown.  Not that there weren't other lights but special things.

Dollywood Discussion / Dolly Drops out of Dollywood opening parade........

I wonder if they could be phasing her out of the limelight for aging reasons.  This makes me wonder if they will ever revert back to SDC tn with the bit of notoriety SDC is getting for Christmas ect.

The Christmas Markets of Europe are in serious danger, some being closed.

 If you have experienced this in person you know what a tradition and shame this is.  This might be a good time for SDC to take out the Crafts booths and dress them up for a section of the park dedicated to a European Christmas Village.  Just a step or 2 behind World Fest....( Meets Christmas)  Frankly if they opened the gates of the back of the GE and opened up a little of the Employee parking lot with partitions.  This could be a great draw with a definite way to monetize the addition. (More income is hardly passable to the PTB)   Something they missed on with Christmas in Midtown, money put out without T-Shirts or Photo ops or vendors to help pay for it.
 Folks, what do you think?  Could or should they pull off a German-style Christmas Market?  Would this give you another reason to go?  They could have Lights / music and sell special gifts/foods all in one location.
