    Don’t expect to get everything on your list done and every ride and show done. If you push kids, they’ll get miserable. Take your time to enjoy it at their speed. And if you see a washroom it’s best to go visit. Nothing like standing in line for Peter Pan for 30 minutes only to have to leave with a little one who has TO GO! 🙂

    Arrive early, leave a little after noon for naps and come back in the evening when it’s cooler and less crowded.

      Absolutely. That’s the best way to really enjoy.
