Questions - graduating senior planning a trip

Monday, May 5, 2014 5:28 PM

I'm a graduating senior this month and am planning a trip for myself and nine other friends. We are planning to go Sunday June 1st and Monday June 2nd, just hanging out the 1st and in the park the 2nd. I am not anticipating large crowds on this day as school is still in session for many, and most school groups will be gone by dinner time, correct?

Anyways, we want to book one of the new deluxe Lighthouse Point cabins that sleeps 10 (don't really care how crammed it will be since we're just gonna be sleeping, will be outside for the rest of the time). I need to know if we have to pay for our tickets at the time of booking the cabin, or can we just pay the $310+tax for it and buy our tickets at the park? In addition, since we are all under 21, but at least 18, how will that work? The plan is to have my parents pay for the room on their card, so it will be in the name of someone at least 21. I heard that if they call the hotel dept and give permission, we will be allowed to stay without an adult. Is this correct?

Anything cool to do in Sandusky that doesn't cost anything / very much?

Best options for breakfast before early entry at 9am?

When would it be best to go to GateKeeper? Didn't go last year so haven't been to the park since that opened.

Thanks!

Sometimes I get the feeling that people look at this site as a full-service travel agent more than a forum.

How about at least participating a bit on the site before suckling on it like some lazy pig?

Iceman, I'm not positive but I think you have to be 21 to stay in the hotels and campground at CP. If you look too young at check in they may ask to see ID's. If you do stay at a CP hotel/cabin it is cheaper to buy your tickets at the registration desk.

Honestly, I've been noticing a trend internet-wide as more and more people get online, and that trend is a complete lack of problem solving and critical thinking skills.

I see this manifest in two ways: first, posts like these (though most are far worse) whose answer can be found via a search engine and a few minutes of FAQ reading, and second, reposts on Facebook of easily-debunkable garbage. If I had a dollar for every time I've taken 15 seconds to post a Snopes link in a comment field on FB, I would by typing this from a sunny beach somewhere while wearing a speedo.

When you priced out your lodging, there were two options - the package option with tickets, and the lodging-only option. Staying at any CP resort gives you access to discounted tickets, so yes, you can just pay for the lodging, and buy your tickets later.

As for having to be 21, I certainly hope you're not allowed to have someone vouch for you so you can stay on-property. That sort of defeats the whole purpose of having a minimum age limit.
