Can you buy tickets on Saturday for Sunday?

We want to attend Bruton Parish church on 7:30 on a Sunday, and then go from there directly to the Governor's Palace for "Storming the Palace." Can we purchase our tickets for Sunday on Saturday, so we don't have to go all the way back to the Visitor's Center? And if we park at Bruton for church, how long can we keep the car there, or there is another place where we could park for the day? From what I can see, it looks kinda hard to be able to go to church and do everything in Colonial Williamsburg on a Sunday without missing something.

Tickets may be purchased at the Lumber House, on Duke of Gloucester Street across from Bruton Parish Church, from 9 a.m. -- 5 p.m. daily, so there is no need to go to the Visitors Center to get your tickets. Parking, however, is another issue. While parking is allowed on Duke of Gloucester and in the nearby lots for Church services, vehicles must leave at the conclusion of each service. Parking in the lots around Merchants Square near the Church have a 2 or 1 hour time limit, and it is enforced.

That being said, you should have plenty of time after the 7:30 worship service to drive your vehicle to the Visitors Center, purchase tickets, and take the shuttle (or walk) to Palace Green to see Storming of the Palace at 10:00 a.m.

Could we park at one of the property lodges?

Only if you are a guest. Lodge/Inn guests are given a parking pass to display.

What if you have reservations for the Sunday brunch? Can we stay parked there all day?

If you are purchasing any pass to start on Sunday, you can do so at any ticket location after 3:00 p.m. on Saturday which would save you time on Sunday. All ticket sites close at 5:00 p.m. except the Lumberhouse which is open until 9;00 p.m. The VC is still the place to park for free all-day, but you will not have to wait in line to purchase tickets if you do it the day before.
