mac - great idea to see info re Busch Gardens in one place.
"free" transportation to BG from SW area
as long as you have purchased a ticket to BG
from what i've been told, bus arrives at approx 10:3 am and departs approx an hour prior to park closure (times vary, you are informed when you make the reservation). Not the longest day in the parks, but a viable option for those who don't want to drive.
Fantastic idea mac.........
As someone who knows nothing about BG.........this sticky is a good one........we see lots of folks asking about BG, so this is ideal.
Thanks for creating a much wanted sticky
Just saw an ad for the Serengeti Overlook Restaurant. Used to always eat at the Colony House so excited to be going to BG this year and have the opportunity to eat there again. Does anyone know the price of the All You Can Eat Buffet offered there?
Does anyone know if the Mears shuttle from Orlando Busch Gardens is free for pass holders? I know it's free with a Busch Gardens ticket, but I have a platinum pass.
I don't know about Mears but if you are staying at the UO hotels, there is a daily round trip bus from there to BG daily for $10 rt
Busses has restrooms and makes some stops along the way from UO to BG
There is a pick up in the wdw area
Thanks. I'll be staying at Springhill Suites SeaWorld and Mears has a pickup at SeaWorld which is also $10 round trip. It is free if you have a Busch Gardens ticket. I will be prepared to pay the $10 and I'll report back if it is free for pass holders in case anyone is interested.
I just checked the route and looks like Mears is handling it
Must be the same bus that does the loop from UO
Do let us know if it is now free
Could be the charge is for those starting from the beginning of the run from UO
So share with us if that is not the case
Free is always best !
I was just there Oct. 23, exploring vegetarian options with the All Day Dining wristband ($34 plus tax). The buffet at the Serengeti Overlook Restaurant (formerly Colony House) was $19, or $6 extra if you have ADD for that day. I didn't opt for the upcharge or take the second set of stairs up the table-service section, but the menu looked interesting. Don't know if soft drinks were included in that charge. I'll try to get a photo of the menu next time I'm there; the BG website lists these for the All-You-Can-Eat Buffet: “Our Famous” Southern Fried Chicken; Beer Battered Fried Fish; Braised Pork; Classic Jambalaya; Pasta, Peas and Tomatoes in a Parmesan Cream Sauce; Fresh Vegetable of the Day; Mac n Cheese Gratin; Seasoned Mashed Potatoes; Assorted Salads. I'm sure there were more salads listed on the display.
You for sharing the info
Great info! Is it worth getting the quick queue passes for 29th December ?
Here's a photo of the Serengeti Overlook Restaurant's buffet menu as of late November 2016, if I can get it to load...
I noticed the buffet is not available in November.Is there anything else that is not offered or closed then like tours,shows,etc
I've never been during that time period so hope someone that has, can answer your question
How can i cancel the shuttle(im no longer going to Busch & cannot find a link to cancel?)
Can you call them to cancel?
