Unless I lived in the immediate Branson area....I have not idea why anyone would buy a WW season pass.

I used to buy 2 park passes only because the BAf package had better dates and there were extras..   With the BAF The 2 park pass also gets you on ALL Showboat cruises for a discount price, (or used to anyway)..   
I Havent bought the the 2 park pass for a couple of years now, showboat shows changed up and I lost interest..  Too bad though, I used love the everything about dinner/show/cruise, but the show is just not what it used to be.

Yes, To each his own but a 50th and 60th is a pretty big deal. Here is hoping they get someone relevant and do not go cheap. 

Yes it is a very big deal.! 
 Kind of surprised we have not heard much hype about it...   
LOL. 
You know, not counting Mystic Falls,, New Riverfront area, New Rib House, New Concerts and that stuff!!!

Is there a way to find out how many 2019 season passes were sold? I know there are thousands of visitors without season tickets, but my family is curious how many season passes they sell every year

uh?.  , well no not really.       Would be an interesting number to know, even if it wasnt an exact count.

So, how many years 'til the BAFs are phased out?  I've expected it for a while now, but in the last couple of years, it seems to be happening.

They wont phase out the BAF's...  those are money makers!!   

people get in free/ cheap, but most still buy food, drink and other "stuff".!!   

thats where the money is, Not the admittance fee...

Construction/Rumors / Re: SDC's 2019 Project(s) and Park Developments

This is definitely where Dollywood got an advantage with that Wilderness Plaza - they put a fountain in the middle and for LumiNights they put in a giant pumpkin tree and then the framing is already there for their new (as of last year) Christmas tree that is similar to what SDC is getting. SDC doesn't have a wide open space in the park like DW does, hence why the backstage area was used for Pumpkin Nights.... Nowhere else to put it.

 I am glad the "backstage" area was used for the PN (pumkin nights).   If it had been slammed up front, it would have ruined the whole SDC feeling completely..  With PN in the back and at GE area, at least there was room for a few crafters and the "Fall Festival" feel..

Hopefully the PTB realize that the PN thing is not being enjoyed by 100% of us, and will bring back a few more crafters and let us enjoy the park and festival they way we like and remember....    If the families want to go do the PN, then they have that option too..

I am sure next year will be revamped and modified, just hoping that both crafters and PN are improved equally.

Is there any chance that SDC will be cutting down trees in the square before the Christmas festival begins? When we were there last week, we noticed just how big the trees in the center of the square around where the tree will be are. In the marketing photos there aren't any trees around the new Christmas tree and it looks much more open, which I really like. I know that some would really throw a fit about them cutting down tress, but I think that it would really help with the Christmas festival and the tree show if they did remove a few of them.

I dont think there is a any chance they will remove trees from the square..  those are adult trees, they put on lots of decorations in those trees..  :-\

along with the fact they add lots of shade and back country "feel" to the ambience through the year.. :D 

I for one hope they would never do that, as well as I hope they have never even considered it.. :)

Everyone talks about the "theme" of the park..  Just think what taking those tress out would do the the initial feel  of the park, IF the square was stripped of the big trees.. :'(

With the loss of Kent Rollins, Buck Taylor,  The Cowboy Poet, and the decreased number in Craft Booths the Cowboy/fall/Craft Festival just isnt the same..

Bring them Back!!  Could easily be scheduled for daytime activities. Give "us" something to look forward to and a reason to visit during this time of year. (again).

Then they can do the Pumkin thing at night,
for the kiddies,
and to separate mom and dad from their money..

Friday - - 12,100 people

I am in the minority here but what is so intriguing about pumpkins ?  I would not walk here to my garage to see a pumpkin. But a full blown crafts festival. YES. As long as the merchandise being created was new and relevant. BUt a carved pumpkin would put me to sleep very fast. I guess it does not take much to entertain people anymore.

^^^^
Couldnt agree more..

 I guess "we" arent the Demographic they are shooting for anymore.. :-\
