Here is a preliminary operating calendar for 2017 that Luke passed along from the park. Most all of the information should be fairly solid, but changes are still possible until this is written in stone so to speak.

We've also heard that March 18th will be 2017's Pass Member Preview Day so mark your calendars!

Anyone want to take a stab at comparing and contrasting this to 2016's?

I just did a quick scan and it looks like the calendar is almost the exact same as last years, minus a few shifts here and there. Major change is there is less time open in March vs. April, but that is because Easter is late this year.

I find it interesting that it looks like we are back to pass holder preview a week before the park opens. The only other time I remember this happen was the Tempesto announcement.

Looks like it won't be open in time for my spring break this year Frowning

I find it kind of surprising though that they already have all the dates all the way through Christmas Town.

I wish they'd stay open until 11 or 12 on regular late Spring/Summer nights too.

I agree! Theme parks are always more magical at night!

Perhaps this is our first sign that it won't be another Illuminights? Anyway, Summer Nights has great potential because of its success at Busch Gardens Tampa and the other SeaWorld parks.

The great thing about Summer Nights is that it has no real unifying theme. This should give the park more versatility. Let's hope they don't use that as an opportunity to make it generic, but unique and with quality.

Oversized snails are unique. They should scatter those around the park.

Where? Behind the rabbit?

Thanks, Luke. The last email I received from the park was an apology after the batch of erroneous emails. I will try signing up for updates again on the Passmember site.

49 days until pass member preview day! Smiling

I rember BGW doing Summer Nights in the mid-2000s. The event was moved to the other parks along with the whole Bud & BBQ event after AB sold the chain off.
