If memory serves me correctly, the single day ticket for Christmas Town is on the order of $20 and $50-ish for the "Christmas Season" pass. So the typical if you are going more than twice, then it is better to buy the "season" pass approach applies.Quick question, but there are five of us going to Christmas Town this year. One has a Premier Membership and two have the old Basic Fun Card/Annual Pass, and two have no passes at all.
I know the Premier Pass will provide entry to CT for he alone , but I'm not sure if there is any discount or special offers for the Fun Card holders. The fine print says "Select special events not included" which leads me to believe CT would not be covered. As for buying tickets solely for visiting CT all I can see on the website is that Memberships include that event... How much is CT historically?
As for the two other muggles who have nothing, is there any bring-a-no-maj offer or what?
I was once a big fan of this idea but based on info that I don't feel comfortable sharing expect to that the info has nothing to do with physical health or well being of the animals, I am not a fan of this any longer. Not against the idea as whole but I think going the route of an outside company that specializes in this type of thing like KD did for Winterfest is the way to go instead of using the Clydesdales.Zoo was planning to do horse-drawn "sleigh rides" (read: carriage rides) during Christmas Town and hay rides during Howl-O-Scream back when the Highland Stables renovation debuted (2010?) and even announced it to media during an event. Nothing ever came of it though unfortunately.
Many of PETA and the groups opposing these activities would not be an issue in an enclosed park setting which is not the same as saying they would agree with the idea just that many of the augments that have been used in the past would be minimal hereConsidering PETA has page after page of anti-horse drawn carriage "facts" I'd assume that is one mitigating factor. 🤐
Additionally, numerous cities have banned or highly limited the practice.
I’ll claim honest ignorance here in that I thought BGW Clydesdales were retired A-B Clydesdales that pulled the retro beer truck.Not against the idea as whole but I think going the route of an outside company that specializes in this type of thing like KD did for Winterfest is the way to go instead of using the Clydesdales
No they are not. They were bought from someone independently of AB after AB was separated from the park. They use to have AB Clydesdales but those left when AB was bought out the current ones have no relation what so ever to the AB Clydesdales.The Clydesdales at BGW are all Clydesdales that AB didn't want to keep because they have very strict definition about what a Budweiser Clydesdale can look like.
You would be partially correct 10 years ago. Back then BGW was an active part of AB's Clydesdale program. They had both young and retired ones as well as ones that were part of active hitch teams. Don't believe we ever had any of the TV star ones but we did have ones that were on the traveling hitch team of the East coast. That ended when AB was bought out and the park was sold off the current ones where then bn purchased independently from AB.I’ll claim honest ignorance here in that I thought BGW Clydesdales were retired A-B Clydesdales that pulled the retro beer truck.
Maybe they can find a professional company that has Clydesdales to use. Biggest issue as @Celticdog pointed out that I agree with is how to do it without going through were people are.
