Storybook Island is an absolute treasure!

We love to visit Storybook Island at least once a month during the summer. The kids love running and climbing their way through the park. A great and free attraction.

Good place to walk around with the kids -- fun in the sun. The annual Parade of Lights is a fun way to spend the cold weekends too. If you are in the area, stop by to check out Disney characters like Willie the Whale!

My grandson LOVES this place. I have yet to see the real value, except that he gets to run everywhere. We go for the grand finale, where there is special characters etc. Be prepared to get your wallet vacuumed before you leave to pay for all of the "fun". It is towards a good cause but yikes dont take a... More

This is a God's send. Kids absolutely love the activity and grown ups can relax in that watching kids enjoy so much fun. I would support this stop however I could so future generations can enjoy such a place. This was the topper for our grand daughter while her grand parents enjoyed watching her have so much fun! too!

If you have kids (or even if you don't) and are short on cash (or even if you are not), this is a really cool park to check out. The park consists of classic fairy tale characters, as well as many modern cartoon characters. Very eclectic theme and fun for all ages, and you can't beat the price... it's FREE... More

Storybook Island is a delightful place in a beautiful setting. It is designed for children but enjoyed by all ages. I take all of my out of town visitors here. My visiting teenage grandchildren still like to visit just for the great memories. It is totally free but please make a donation to keep this family park to keep it... More

I have a 7yo boy and a 2yo boy. They loved this attraction!! The enjoyed exploring and seeing all the characters. We spent about 2 or 3 hours at this park. I highly recommend it as it is free and lets the kids run off some energy.

My family loves Storybook Island. We go at least once a year. The park is free. My kids love to crawl around on the figures, play in the sand, and play the 3 little pigs game. My kids love to ride the train (that costs $1 per kid). It is a great place to relax and watch the kids have... More

My family took a road trip out west this summer and stopped here along the way. Well worth the time! Our children, ages 5 & 8, loved seeing all of the oversized fairytale figures and scenes. What a bonus that it was free with reasonably-priced concessions and toys in the gift shop. Made for great photo ops.
