Favorite thing: Everyone visiting the Colonial Williamsburg starts from this modern and quite large building on my picture that is the Visitor Center. The building is large but wasn't designed to host over 4,000,000 visitors each year (over 10,000 each day).
We arrived in the early afternoon and it wasn't crowded but... in the morning, around the opening hour, I would expect crowds.

There is the ticket office, restrooms, bookstore, gift shop, fast food bar, costume rental and a movie theater which showed the movie: Williamsburg. The store of a Patriot, in the Visitor Center.

Colonial Williamsburg is open 365 days per year. The opening hours are different and depends on the season. Check here.

In October the area was open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., the Visitor Center 8.45 am - 5.30 pm, the Capitol and the Governor's Palace 9.00 am - 4.00 pm.
