Branson Talk / Summer Car Cruise to change weekend in Branson
« on: March 07, 2018, 02:50:22 PM »

Not sure the PTB thought this through...  SMH

Cruise will be in Sept.,  AFTER school starts.  This will count out the family attending all 4 days, now will only be there 1 day, Saturday..??

No Midnight Cruise...  hundreds of people usually line up to watch this event on Sat. night.... BUT not this year.. Thye will have to find something else to do... OR they wont even come to town.... :(

That doesnt even count the fact that thousands of people schedule this weekend a year in advance... Now those people will have to scramble and change room reservations and make other arrangments...

Branson Talk / All Access Branson 417-332-2121
« on: February 05, 2018, 11:22:24 AM »
All Access Branson is the company I use in town to buy show tickets..    They can save purchaser at least 10.00 per ticket.  Most tickets are 35-40.00 per person, that is a savings of 25% or more...  A few of the shows have steeper discounts than that..  I deal with Michele, great lady, easy going, and if she can save you some extra money she will..

Their business is selling tickets, NO condo sales pitch, NO time share, NO upselling.. Call order tickets, they deliver, you enjoy your stay in town.

They can get you combo tickets to Ripleys, House of Mirrors, Wax Museum.  Also can get you other tickets to other attractions in town, But not all 25& off..

They have a website, so you can check show times, attraction hours and prices..

I connected with these people years ago..  This is a locally owned Company, by a local family.. They also run the place themselves,...  I think there are 3, maybe 4 generations working there..  All great ladies.. They Have been in the business for over 14 years.   They will deliver the tickets or vouchers to your motel/condo for no charge. That way when you check in, you can pick up your envelope and your ready to go!!.   They also have the SDC 2 for 1 tickets if you need them..

I have only had 1 mess up on tickets, I called Michele from the motel explained the problem..  She called the the show, straightened out the problem, called me back in like 10 minutes and it was handled.!  I went to the show, they had my tickets all ready to go at ticket office.. NO running around, NO exchanging wrong vouchers for right ones.. NO hassle.

So Give them a call if you need show tickets, If you talk to Michele, tell you are from SDCFans club, and that Dan from Lyndon told you to call.....

 Well maybe the deep freeze of 17-18 is over? (i hope),  holidays are over.   What are you going to do for the 7 weeks until the park is open for the new season? Any plans?

I am going to catch up on outside work, lots of clean up from bad weather.  Back to work and wait.. Planning on being there the first weekend.. Will be staying at Classic of course.

Branson Talk / New Name for Dixie Stampede
« on: January 09, 2018, 04:53:30 PM »
I just saw this on another site...

I cant help if there isnt a different underlying reason for change ::) ::)

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WATE) - Dolly Parton's "Dixie Stampede" will have a new name for the 2018 season.

In a release Monday, Parton announced the show will go by the name "Dolly Parton's Stampede" when it re-opens in late January for the 2018 season.

“Our shows currently are identified by where they are located,” Parton said. “Some examples are Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede. We also recognize that attitudes change and feel that by streamlining the names of our shows, it will remove any confusion or concerns about our shows and will help our efforts to expand into new cities.”

The dinner attraction, which is owned by World Choice Investments, has plans to expand into new communities around the world in 2018.

There are currently locations in Pigeon Forge; Branson, Missouri; and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

« on: January 02, 2018, 01:08:44 PM »
Time to start the new thread for 2018.

The 2018 rate will remain at 40.00 per night plus tax, as it has been in the past.
With the Exceptions of Thanskgiving week/weekend, (Wed-Thurs-Fri-Sat) when our rate will be 50.00 per night plus tax.. And of course Car Show Weekend.

Also K.D. wanted me to post her cell phone number, so if she is not onsite, or there are any questions you may contact her that way..
Office number 417-334-6991
Cell number    417-251-2776
You can also PM me if any questions or concerns arise

As most of you already know, we as members of SDCFans,  get a Very nice discounted room rate at Classic Motor Inn. They are located on Shepherd Of The Hills Expressway, typically about a 10 minute drive from SDC.  Our nightly rate is only 40 + tax, with 3 exceptions.
#1 Special Rate for Thanksgiving Week/Weekend.  50.00 + tax per night
#2 There are no discounted rooms during Car Show Weekend (2nd week in August). 
#3 During the off season Jan1 - mid march the rate is 35.00 + tax.
If you are a new member and have any questions about Classic, please post them here. Several of us stay here off and on all year around, last year "we" (members), stayed over 400 nights at this motel.
Classic is locally owned, the owners live on site as well as the Manager. That way they can take care of any "needs" you may have immediately.

most rooms have pillow top mattress,
some rooms have flat screen TV
Wi-Fi to all rooms
Fridge in all rooms,
Microwave in all rooms,
Coffee Pots are available upon request,
They do have pet rooms, and welcome them
Cont. Breakfast. including, Biscuits and Gravey, French Toast,  Donuts, Toast, Waffles, Cereal, Milk, Juice, Fruit Cocktail. Now keep in mind, this is not a Buffet from Golden Corral..  But it is a good way to start your day, and is included with your room.
Ice machine for your room on premises,
Nice outdoor swimming pool,
Lots of parking available, and room for small trailers out back.
Every night they make Fresh Popcorn and Chocolate Chip Cookies for customers

Overall this is a great deal for all of us, and as I stated earlier several of us stay here throughout the year, and have stayed here for at least 3 years, some of us up to 5 years or more..

Give K.D. a call. She will appreciate it, and they will all take care of you. ****One thing when making your reservations, make sure you tell them you are a member of SDCFans. So they know to extend the 40.00 rate to you. You must call. Cant do reservations on the website, computer, or other websites.. Call the office at 417-334-6991 or K.D.'s Cell Phone is 417-251-2776.

Questions? post them, or PM me..

Thanks, and enjoy your stay this year.
