Hi, I know there is no Busch Gardens thread, but I guess this is as close to it as I could get. I will be staying in the Tampa area with my family in November, and we are looking to visit Busch Gardens during our stay. This will be our first time. My son will be 5 and my daughter will be 3. We will be going mainly for Sesame Street and the animal exhibitions. What do we need to know about the park? How crowded is it in early November? Should we have any kind of touring plan? How easy is it to meet the Sesame Street characters? Do we need to rent a stroller? I read on their site that we are not allowed to bring a picnic. Not even snacks or bottled water? Did anyone try the Sesame Street buffet? Do they ever have some type of coupons or rebates? Thank you for your help, I appreciate any information you might have.
