A day at an Amusement Park offers great memories for all, and its not just about families. Disneyland is a popular destination for honeymooners; my girlfriend Sarah and her boyfriend Darin are first in line for season passes to Six Flags. They ride roller coasters and hit the water park weekly, sometimes twice a week. Some families make it a yearly event to go to a Disney or other amusement park and I even have a friend, Tiffany, who boycotts such fun because she prefers to show her kids a simpler existence. One day alone at a park could cost a couple or a family hundreds of dollars. Besides the entrance fee, parking and park food really ups the need for cash. Disney does tend to show a happier guest however, I can easily remember when my oldest was age 2 and had a meltdown just after we saw The Beartown Jamboree.
There are websites that offer info on which rides should be ridden earlier in the day and other sites that offer discount coupons; the information is abundant on ways you can enjoy your chosen park. Mental preparation needs to happen too, remembering what the time is about and who the time is meant for. Families with toddlers need a different plan than teens and couples. My friend, Holly (mother of 5), has a rule that none of her kids will step foot in an amusement park until they turn 6. She feels it's just not worth it. For me amusement parks got a lot more fun when I didn't have to push around a double stroller. It's much more enjoyable riding with my kids instead of being the only who holds all the stuff while waiting for others who in turn are waiting to ride a 2 minute thrill.
