How to get a Busch Gardens Preschool Pass for 2020
Registration for the 2020 Busch Gardens Williamsburg Preschool Pass opens on Monday, January 27th. In the meantime, check out the other theme parks that offer a free PreK Pass for kids.
Register online by May 31 to get unlimited FREE admission to Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA for your preschool-aged child.
The Preschool Pass is good March 27 through November 1, 2020, and works for kids no matter where they live. You do not have to be a Virginia resident!
A regular children's ticket to Busch Gardens is $90, so this is big savings!
Then, print out the Preschool Pass and bring it to the park to redeem by May 31st. You'll need to bring proof of your child's age–either a birth certificate or travel passport.
Children must be ages 3-5 when you apply for the pass online. If your child turns 6 over the summer, they are still eligible!
Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water County USA open March 27th for the 2020 season.
For parents and siblings accompanying preschoolers to the park, there are two options this year. Get the Busch Gardens Spring & Summer Fun Card for $95 or the 2-park Fun Card for $110.
Each card gives unlimited admission through the summer season, ending September 13th. Parking is not included.
Preschool Pass for Florida Kids
Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island has the same Preschool Pass offer for Florida residents ages 5 and under, good through December 31, 2020. You do need to register online as you cannot do it at the park.
They're also offering a free Preschool Pass for Seaworld and Aquatica Orlando for kids ages 3-5 who are Florida residents. You must register by February 3 and visit the park to activate the pass by March 31. Learn more ways to get free admission to Seaworld.

Free Admission for Military Families
Remember Busch parks also offer the Waves of Honor program to active military families. The program changes every year, and it's quite reduced for 2020.
This year, they are offering one complimentary admission to either SeaWorld, Busch Gardens or Sesame Place for military personnel and up to three direct dependents.
You can also purchase up to six discounted tickets to Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Water Country USA. Registration must occur by November 1, 2020.
