My family and I stayed at the Lodge on the Lake. Our weekend stay included a free breakfast buffet which was really good. We enjoyed all rides especially the roller coaster.

My girls earned free tickets from participating in a reading contest at school, so off we went. My biggest gripe was the parking fee of $20, which had just doubled overnight according to the attendant. That’s Disney pricing and this place ain’t WDW. The lines...More

My advice is to look at Groupon or WagJag for park savings. The administration staff gets Kudos for being 100%customer service friendly! The park offers souvenir cups at a great price with little pay back for refills. The best ride I found was the motorcycle...More
