There is a true, misleading direct false advertising when it comes to Elite Diamond or any other lower memberships. Never does it say that you have to make reservations for parking, wait in line for Haloween wristbands or flashpass entry until AFTER payment is made...More

We had a blast! The park made us feel like we were caught between two worlds. It had an old style charm but was updated. The rides were fun for the entire family. The carousel was gorgeous! Wear hats, sunblock, and mosquito repellent. Make sure...More

My daughter tried using my dining pass when I was not there. She grabbed my card instead of hers. The dining pass would not work. You have to use it to get in the park in order for ot to work for food.
