I’ve partnered with Hershey Entertainment and Resorts to share the latest happenings in Hershey!
Last week, we celebrated the end of school by visiting Hersheypark and staying at the Hershey Lodge for three days! It was a vacation that we really needed and we soaked up every minute.
During our stay, we really came to realize all the benefits of staying at Hershey resort while visiting the park. We only live about 2 hours from Hershey and can easily the do the trip in a day but there are some real benefits for staying on property.
Why You Should Stay at a Hershey Resort
Resort Amenities. Each resort has their own amenities that are exclusive to the resort. When staying at the Hershey Lodge, you have access to Water Works (indoor waterpark), an outdoor pool and miniture golf. They also offer kid and family activities each and every day, from bingo to S’mores Roasts!
More time at the parks! If you are not a current season pass holder, you can still get extra time at Hersheypark. Enjoy up to 3.5 FREE extra hours at Hersheypark (Memorial Day – Labor Day) with Preview Plan. Just present your ticket for the following day to enjoy the park the night before.
And if that wasn’t a bonus, you can get in one hour early access with Sweet Start! With Hersheypark Sweet Start, you can start your day before the gates officially open with up to one-hour early admittance on select rides in Founder’s Way, The Hollow, and Kissing Tower Hill.
Explore Hershey. When you check in, you will not only receive your hotel key cards and complimentary chocolate bars (always a bonus in my book), you will also receive tickets to Hershey Gardens featuring the new Butterfly Atrium and The Hershey Story’s Museum Experience!
Shuttle service. We utilized the shuttle service for the first time during our last stay. Since we have Season Passes, we take advantage of the closer parking. However, if there are any events or concerts going on while you are at Hersheypark, you are going to want to skip the headache of parking. Just hop on the shuttle and the hassle of parking will be long behind you!
Relax. The biggest benefit, for us, when staying at a Hershey Resort is the ability to relax. We don’t have to cram everything we want to do in a few hours. We can spend a few hours at the park, swim at the hotel, take a nap, and then head back to the parks! Being able to space out our activities keeps everyone happy and makes our trips actually feel like a vacation!
