Busch Gardens -what do we need to know?

Are there any tip or things we need to know about BG if going with a 4 and 11 year old boys?

We go every year in the middle of our Disney trip. We always go mid week, on a Wednesday and its been slow. Hit the big rides first like shiekra and cheetah hunt. It is a beautiful park, we love it. Actually skipping this next time so we can go back to universal. No huge tips except if you have a preschooler, allow plenty of time in sesame street area. It had a ton to do, and there's a cute all you can eat lunch. There are two, one is prepay online or in park and is a little more expensive, and generally is only on weekends. The other isn't as widely advertised, and is I think every day. It is really cute, and has a lot of character interaction. We have huge sesame street fans here, so it is a must do.

We are going on a Monday. We had planned on buying the ticket for the all day meal deal. Is the character meal included in that? Do we need a reservation? Do you know what restaurant it is at?

that although the park may open at 9, they stagger many attraction opening until 10. So we went to do all the skyway/sky rides and they were closed. Then we went to the safari and they were also closed til 10. It is a park where there are a lot of kiddie and very intense rides with little in-between. Kids did love the animals.

Well we do not ride roller coasters so I wonder if there is enough to keep us busy all day. So if we get there at park opening where should we go first? It looks like the park is open from 10-6 the day we will be there. Also, can someone tell me what part of the park each of these shows is in: A is for Africa, Critter Castaways and Iceploration. Thanks.

I think the shows are fantastic. But I doubt there would be enough to keep you entertained enough during the day maybe because I do the big rides though and ignore the smaller things.
