We have a gift card for GWL and are hoping to use it at one that is not in Williamsburg, VA (we live in VA and have been to that one so we want to go somewhere new). We’d really like to go to the one in the Poconos or the one in Toronto. Dh wrote them both inquiring to see if they have homeschool weeks or discounts like the one in VA. He got a kind of terse response saying that “your homeschool group will let you know”. :)

So...does anyone know if the GWL in PA or in Toronto does homeschool weeks. And even better, can you share the codes if you know them?

I'm interested in this also. We live 3 hours from Toronto. I'm betting that the local groups there would have to write and formally request it. I posted on FB to my homeschool friends to see if anyone knew of anything, but I'm most likely too far way for any feed back.

Well I can tell you the one in Charlotte. :-) If Williamsburg is "home", then Charlotte is "whome". I bet I have that backwards. "whome" would make more sense in Williamsburg wouldn't it? :laugh:

Oh, something I didn't know until I went to GWL in Charlotte, it's at the same exit as the racetrack. The number of hotels there is stagering! I asked at a breakfast place once and they said every single room is full for race weekends. I would say try your best not to go if they are racing.

ETA: On a lark I just tried "home" at the Poconos and got a message: "Homeschooler Program"

I had tried a different random date and got this message:

Best Available Homeschoolers Rate - The discounted Homeschooler rate is no longer available on this date. Please select a different date to receive the discounted rate or book the best available rate for this date. Limit 2 rooms per guest. Limited number of rooms available for each date. May not be valid during holiday and blackout periods. Multiple night minimum stay may apply.”


So "home" works for the Poconos and Cincinnati and Grand Mound, WA and Grapevine, TX. Either it doesn't work at the rest or the computer got wise to me. :-)

I live "down the road" from the Pocono GWL. I get the homeschool days postcard in the mail and do not belong to any official "homeschool group" that would be any sort of gatekeeper to local attraction discounts, lol.

I haven't seen one come through with this years dates yet.
