  1. why don’t you list the star line up in advance? Many people have to plan more than a week out for time off from work and other personal commitments.

  2. This sounds like a great deal and lots of fun, especially with the snow on the ground here in the northeast.

  3. I’ve taken my children to sea world several times. I’m a Marine Corps Disabled Veteran, these days it’s difficult for me to get around, I would have loved to been able to attend some of these events. This is awesome.
