Deal Of The Week

Bounce to Williamsburg

What's the deal?: The Williamsburg Lodge Family Fun Bounce Package includes a three-night stay for a family of four in any selected official hotel of the Colonial Williamsburg Resort Collection for as low as $292 per night, plus general admission to the resort's historic area and museums, as well as Busch Gardens, and Water Country USA. Also included are special discounts with the Spa of Colonial Williamsburg, free family golf and discounted golf games at the Spotswood Course, and 20 percent off purchases at any Williamsburg store.

What are the savings?: A one-night stay at The Williamsburg Lodge, one of the resort's premium hotels, is typically in the $350 per night range. A daily admission for a family of four, with children under 9, to Busch Gardens would normally cost about $219 per day. So you're at least saving the entrance fees. (If you're not interested in visiting Busch Gardens, this package is not for you. Instead, try the resort's Summer Saver.) So if you stayed for one night, the hotel plus the park admission would cost about $575 - more than half the amount of the three-night package deal.

What's the catch?: The package requires a minimum stay of three nights, pushing the bill to more than $875 for the entire stay, not including tax. Additionally, although the package is offered at various resort hotels, the perks such as the spa deals and golf discounts are exclusive to guests of the Williamsburg Lodge.
