While it is definitely still summer outside, the folks at Opryland and the Grand Ole Opry House are gearing up for Christmas already. Lights are starting to be hung on trees outside the hotel and ticket deals for their Country Christmas shows and activities are popping up. The theme this year for the ever popular ICE! is DreamWorks Merry Madagascar, but, while tickets can be purchased online right now for this attraction, more and usually better deals will show up once it gets a little bit closer to opening day.
The one show that always has the best ticket deals early is the Radio City Christmas Spectacular with the Rockettes. This is a not to be missed show for kids through grandparents - although teen boys and dad's may grumble a bit at all the dancing (secretly they will be impressed with the precision of the dancers and their small costumes). Now through September 30 code RCB2G2 will nab buy 2 get 2 free tickets to any of the shows. Seats included in this deal are rear floor and mezzanine which normally run $55 and $60, respectively.
The Spectacular begins November 18, 2011 and runs 6 days a week (no Monday shows) through December 24, 2011. Times vary near Thanskgiving and Christmas Eve but there is typically an 8pm show Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; a 5pm and 8pm show on Friday; an 11am, 2pm, 5pm and 8pm show on Saturday; and a 3:30pm and 7pm show on Sunday.
There are two ways to use this code:
- Order tickets online and type it into the Promotional Code box on the right side of the screen, or
- Call 1-888-777-OPRY (6779) and tell the operator the code.
Merry Christmas in August!
