Screamscape mentioned that BGE might be planning some sort of "hard ticket" Christmas event for 2009--we shall see. I've always thought that the park should take a crack at this. Colonial Williamsburg's big Christmas event, the "Grand Illumination," is this Sunday.
They've added quite a bit of stuff to the announcement on the Web site since I checked it out earlier this afternoon. The event also looks a bit more extensive than I had first heard (that is, more of the park will be open).
If this turns out to be anything like the Smokey Mountain Christmas Festival at Dollywood, then it shuld be pretty cool to see! Even if you have to pay each time, $19.99 is a good deal for getting into BGE. I could see it being a bummer for those who may visit the park on a more frequent basis, but for someone like me, who will probably go around once a month at the most, it isn't bad. I also like the idea of having the holiday traditions for each country, that would be pretty cool, and could make for a good field trip for a social studies class of the nearby schools.
