Tips for Families

In the summer they offer a "character breakfast." It is a great deal because you get into Hershey World before it officially opens, you play candy bingo, eat breakfast, meet the characters and see the little movie they have. There is a historian who guides you through everything and he is very informative and answers any questions. Great to do with little kids or anyone who would be overwhelmed with the crowds that come later.
