I'm staying overnight at the hotel, is there any added benefits to buying the tickets and the hotel as a package over buying them separately? I can get the tickets cheaper separately, but wanted to know if there were any good reasons to buy a hotel package.
If you buy tickets as part of the hotel package, the disadvantage is like you say having to pay a higher price than you would with the many available discounts, but the big advantage is the ticket acts as '2 days for the price of 1' and also includes Early Ride Time. When my girlfriend and I stayed in April we arrived around 11.30am, dropped our bags in the hotel, had a good few hours in the park, stayed the night and were able to have a good full day on the park the next day. Well worth doing if you plan to arrive early on the day of your stay, but not so much if you just intend to turn up for the night ready for a single day on the park, unless you are desperate for the Early Ride Time.[/quote]
No, we will be spending the two days at the park with one night at the hotel. I went a few years ago just for the day and bought tickets online. I was able to get in the park early, does that still happen? I'm just asking about the hotel package because I'm eligable for the disabled/carer tickets but there is no option to buy them when booking the hotel, as there is when just buying the tickets.
