Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I have dietery restrictions, the chef in the buffet bent over backwards to accomadate me. I would have apperciated a few nutsw and seeds now and then. You lable sugar free, lable gluten free and I would apperciate it


5 out of 5
I didn't like the crafts, too elementery, would have been nice to have a little more advanced options.

the fort was just another fort and we don't shop anymore. The tours were way to expensive, how can another company do it for a fourth the cost?
Don't Miss: the beach and the sun.

Pros: the evening show

Cons: the unexpected service charge of $22.00 per day.
