Busch Gardens Fun Card?

When is it available? We will be in Tampa in the first week of the year and I am thinking about going to Busch Gardens on 1/2/13 and we will be back in Tampa in April and then again in December 2013. Is the Fun Card available right away at the start of the year? I seem to recall that it's usually not available until later in the year.

From what I remember its avaiable right away. And I think I have seen some comments in here that it is available before the new year.

Shoot. I just noticed that the Fun Card is only available to FL Residents. I could swear that I got one for Sea World about 9 years ago.

We were able to buy the Aquatica Weekday Passes for our August trip, and they are listed on the Florida Resident page. We aren't FL residents, nor even residents of the USA. I called SW to inquire and they said they were open to everyone, regardless of where you live, and that they market them to FL residents because that's their largest concentration of purchasers.

I would call and ask. I will bet you will have no problem buying and using a Fun Card.

Whew! You're right. I read somewhere else where it said it was only for FL residents. The website says: "Valid for only residents of the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico" which covers WI . Now I have to see if one AP makes any sense for parking and discounts.

Can you buy multiple Quick Queue passes (or whatever they are called) with one AP? I read that is one of the discounts.
