Yes. There have already been conspiracy theories about it. I'm working to confirm if the robotic deer can fly.

In the comments, they said that the picture was taken from four hundred feet up from a drone. Turns out they have flying robotic deer who can be controlled, but can also move on their own. What an investment!

One possible explanation might be that we see black out dates around that time for the lower price passes and that they have it open as a possible draw for those people.

I a little disappointed that we got the operating schedule but not info on the new passes and black out dates if any.

Open on Christmas.... that's interesting.

I am guessing that an error and that Christmas Eve and Christmas got switched. A little sad and concerning that no one caught it before posting.

I'm hoping the opening date for Christmastown is legitimate, as they did that several years ago and it was gloriously empty. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and we were able to do everything.

I surprised they didn't try to expand on July 4th and add a few more days open later, especially considering it falls on a Wednesday.

Being someone in the PR/Comms field, this went through multiple departments before being approved and this isn't like they got the hours wrong on a Friday so I'm going with it being a real thing.

Agree with you horsesboy that it's probably a mistake having it show the park being open on Christmas day and closed on the eve when that's never happened before. Any bets on this getting changed? Opening one weekend earlier is also interesting. They'll have three weeks to get set up but if they expand any more with decorations and lights that's making it tight to get everything set up. In that video they released this last year they said it was all hands on deck to get it set up now as is. Also noticed that they are only open for two full weeks next year for Spring Break where last year it was three. Then they are opening late and closing early on Sept 8&9. Surprised the next weekend is this way also.

I wonder if that's meant to be a sign that BGW is going to take a break this year and create an all new Halloween event. I hope they can confirm something about this.

I’m confused. Are you are suggesting that they might not have HOS this year? That seems unlikely to me, given the midnight closings throughout October.

I am suggesting that, but that's hypothetical out of my own confusion. Why isn't there a title on the Sept/Oct schedule that should point out HOS? I'm asking if that means there isn't going to be one this year? If there is, awesome, if there isn't then that's pretty sudden for the park to make such a bold decision.

This is the main park schedule - it NEVER has had any mention of special events on it EVER, excluding Christmas Town.

The Pass Member Fun Tracker is the calendar that marks all the events and such. HOS is still happening. By the looks of it, they are probably going to have another HOS Preview Night that friday before HOS starts that saturday.

Does the opening on 03.24.2018 mean that passholder preview will be the saturday before? I hope so. My two favorite days of the year on the same day. Preview day and St. Patrick's day!!!!!!! Hope they have green beer in Grogan's Pub.
