By the looks of things it's the same as last year. The only day you can buy single day passes for is Sunday. The only tickets that are sold prior to the regular on sale are 3 day passes, rv passes and car camping passes. I suggest just buying a fishing pass again. haha.
I'd rather not go that route. I want to be able to go with my daughter during the afternoon and come back for the night time festivities with my husband. But worst comes to worst Izzy and I will find a way in for the magic show.
