I am SO sorry. I am a traitor to the DISboards. I like Busch Gardens (The one in VA)MUCH more then I like disney, I do. Please dont kick me off the boards, let me just explain. Reasons why I like it more: 1. Closer - Yes, that always helps, my parents will be more willing to go to it, and theres a bigger chance. 2. Its very "green"- Okay, so before you start attacking me with the whole "OMG DISNEY IS GREEN" let me say this. In disney, there is junk ALL over the pathways, they may use those paper straws in AK, but BG is SUPER green. I mean they have trashcans EVERYWHERE *along with recycling*. Not only that, but people actually RESPECT the place. If someone drops something on the floor thats trash, 9 times out of 10 they pick it up and throw it away. Its SUPER clean. You can attack this post as many times as you want, but its true and i dont want you attacking it, if youve never been (im not sure how africa is, but im talking about europe). 3. Its less crowded - Dontcha just love it when theres not a HUGE crowd? Yes there is TONS of people, but its not like disney where you rub against someone every 30 seconds 4. Its less expensive - Pretty much explains itself 5. Friendly - I dont mind saying this...There are some RUDE people at disney, there are a LOT of rude people. I did NOT notice any rude people at BG, in fact, i actually made friends multiple times wile standing in line for a ride. 6. Decorations - Ive never been to Mickey's not so scary halloween party, but WDW is open all year. BG is only open during the spring-fall, and during the fall its only open on weekends. Yet they are CRAZY about their decorations. I mean CRAZY. Fog machines/ghosts in about every tree/cobwebs all over the place..you name it. It was there. 7. Rides - In my opinion, theres a better vairity of rides. You have the classics along with some famous rollarcoasters, along with little fun things. 8. Parents - My parents hate disney, so anytime im at disney, i get to have the joy of hearing them whine the ENTIRE time, yesterday..I did NOT get that. Infact, all i kept getting was "Thats awesome! Lets go check that out". 9. Trees - There is a TON of grass, trees, flowers. There ARE those in disney, but disney just seemed so dry and dull looking when it came to that. This is PACKED with nature. I mean PACKED. Take me to a dark alley. Beat me up. Im sorry, but I need to tell you guys the truth. Im not saying I hate disney, or dislike it. I still love it, but i like BG more. Edit : So does this mean I should leave the boards?
