I was going to say that anyone who sets a specific date at this point is fooling himself.

Found it interesting that SDC and DW released basically word for word statement. Until now, they seemed to be doing their own thing. Most of the statement is attributed to Craig Ross, Dollywood’s president in the DW release and is just standard next (not a quote) in the SDC statement.

In case you haven’t put 2 and 2 together...

This year there will be no:
-Spring Ride Days
-Young Christians Weekend
-Festival of Wonder
-60th Diamond Jubilee Homecoming (as planned)
-Bluegrass and BBQ?

I’d be all for cutting down Star Spangled Summer and putting in Festival of Wonder as I don’t need two months of Reuben

I have put 2 and 2 together and come to the conclusion I probably should have skipped season passes this year like I originally planed to do.  Instead in went all in and decided to get season trail blazer passes also.  Tick tock, the season is running down as we speak. I know it is not their fault and there are other problems in the world but since this is a SDC discussion group I figured I might as well bring it up.

I'm glad I skipped this year.  For the first time in about 10 years I had no family vacation money budgeted for 2020.  Spending it on the house.

Just remember season ticket holders you are all in this together.  I'd trust HFE will do what is needed for everyone. 

I'm not trying to be the morality police.....I do feel bad for the SDCs workers who need the park open to put food on the table:(  These parks aren't just full of part-time kids getting summer money.....plenty of workers are depending on these jobs.

Pretty sure you can get another season pass for next year if you do not use your pass this year.   I have never did that but heard at one time they would allow you to do this.   The trailblazer pass might be done the same...not sure.   Just call or message to check.
