Let me start with the positive. The Santa was the best ever. My children were so tired after standing in line for an hour that my baby was screaming and the Santa was lovely and looked amazing. On the negative we oozed money trying to entertain our children. We knew that going into it so no complaints, but anyone thinking that they are going to find a way not make it out of there without shelling out a ton of money...good luck. We paid over a hundred dollars for breakfast with Charlie Brown, saw Charlie Brown for two seconds and then the baby and toddler freaked out in fear of him. The eggs had to be powdered although there was a chocolate fondue that was wonderful. The breakfast was definitely not worth that kind of money. The ice was great...costly, but my kids had a great time. If your children are young it is a TON of work for you, but my 6 year old had a blast (he is very independent). You can go through as much as you want, but I would recommend going early before the crowds come then there are no lines. Our biggest problem at the Gaylord was actually at check in. We knew we were going to be getting in late and called to make sure there would be two cribs available. They said no problem. We checked in at 11pm with very tired children. The lady at they desk promised the beds were on their way up. At 12 still no beds. I called down and they said beds were on their way. Still nothing. 1am I was told that three people were ahead of me. Two hours after check in with young children and no beds and I had three people in front of me. I waited all night and kept checking outside to see if they were there, nothing. I called in the morning and complained and was told that they were afraid that someone would steal the crib and would not leave it. It is a crib...NOT A PACK AND PLAY. I personally think that they were holding out for a tip. I told them that I could not keep calling because everytime I moved or called the kids woke up. I was extremely sleep deprived. The next night there was a wedding under our window. In days past blaring music at 10pm would not bother me, but my kids go to sleep at 730, and it was way too loud to sleep. We called down and asked them if there was anything they could do. They said no, but they were required to bring the music down at 10pm. On the plus side there is a quieter area of the hotel, not as fun or cool to look at from your room, but evidently not as noisy.
