Michael that is seriously cool that you're going to the Netherlands for your honeymoon!! You have to do a TR for us! I've always wanted to go there and have a several dogsport friends who live there. It's supposed to be just beautiful and the people are all wonderfully nice.
As far as my 2018 parks, we have SF and CF passes so go to a lot of places:
Kings Dominion Cedar Point Carowinds SF Great Adventure SF America Dollywood
Possibly: Knoebels Hersheypark SF Magic Mountain Knotts
I haven't really planned out 2018 yet but I will definitely do something.
Definitely: Knott's Berry Farm California's Great America Girloy Gardens (with the Cedar Fair Platinum Pass I'll be getting since I've never been here before) Six Flags Magic Mountain (if there is a West Coast Bash)
Probably: Walt Disney World (planning to do another trip to Orlando some time next year, this time for Disney) Busch Gardens Tampa (I will try to tag a day here when I go to Orlando) Cedar Point (possibly for CoasterMania)
Possibly: Sea World Orlando (if I could squeeze this until my Orlando trip) Waldameer (if I could tag this on to my Cedar Point trip) Kennywood (if I could tag this on to my Cedar Point trip) Disneyland/DCA (who knows what could bring me here for a day or two) Universal Studios Hollywood (if I do their Halloween Horror Nights) Universal Studios Florida (if I visit Orlando during October) Sea World Sea Diego (if I make a trip down to San Diego)
Who knows what else I decide to do? I like to keep my options open.

Did my homework. Listened in class.
Worked 40 hour weeks cleaning toilets starting at age 16. Worked the lowest level job in my field and a second one at the mall right out of college, sold most of my comic books, and paid off the debt without complaint by 23.
Another degree later, solid resume of experience... yup, at 43 I can take my family and ride whatever roller coasters I damn well please. If I can't get to the park I can run with scissors with a lollipop in my mouth without a helmet and tilt my chair way far back.
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.
Planned California trip: Six Flags Discovery Kingdom California's Great America Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk Possible bonus parks
This must happen. It was already ridiculous before next year's announcements. I don't know yet if I'll do one big-yet-still-small trip, or two or more 1-2 park trips to get all three parks in. I might even go down to SFDK this year. I haven't been to SCBB and CGA since 2009, and it's been five years since I've been to SFDK.
Short list of other parks: Cedar Point, Kings Dominion, Six Flags Over Georgia, Silver Dollar City, Knoebels, Dollywood. No thoughts on the logistics at this point, but at the same time, it's painful to imagine not going to these places next year.
Maybe: SFFT and SeaWorld San Antonio. This would be much closer to a given if it weren't for RailBlazer. It should probably still happen anyway though.
Likely due to proximity: Enchanted Forest Theme Park
My current priorities, not all of which are reflected above, are as follows: 1) the parks with major new coasters for 2018; 2) parks and major coasters that are new to me; 3) revisiting old favorite parks and rides. With other bits and bobs thrown in for good measure, I suppose.
