Do I have to choose a date I am going to visit?

No.  Our online tickets are event based so you choose the ticket based on the event you want to attend.  You can then use that ticket once on any of the dates within that event.  

Santa Spectacular tickets are the only tickets where we request you choose a date.  This is so that we can manage our capacities at Santa's Grotto.
