We visited yesterday and whilst getting into the event was efficiently managed, the reality of the experience was somewhat different and fell way short of our expectations. It was akin to a sixth form end of term performance mixed with bad Santa's grotto and was...More

I cannot believe Disney put their name to this one. A terrible shambles overall with no Disney magic. We were told that a specific arrival time would be emailed. This didn’t happen and when we arrived at the start of our window the front of...More
