I am a long time lurker and finally have a question! We will be down 8/6-8/14. My youngest turns 12 while we are there and I wanted to surprise him with tickets to the NBA experience to go with my husband for his birthday. (Me and my oldest could care less and will do the parks). It opens the 12th, so I was thinking of getting 2 tickets for the 13th. When I went to buy tickets, there is no option to choose a date. My fear is it is insanely crowded that they spend hours getting in and waste their last day there.
What would you do? Treat it like a rope drop and get there an hour before? Just skip it because it will be too crowded? He wouldn’t know it was opening unless we told him. BUT he is a huge NBA fan. Any advice?
