I booked the family sight and sound, dinner and accommodation package. We had a great time. Pity the check in wasn't until 2pm but somehow the people that came after us got their rooms before us. It would have been nice to drop our stuff off. Also it would have been nice if the keycard they gave us opened all the doors. We had a stroller but our room was down stairs, so someone would have to go in and let me in via ramp by the back. Dinner was nothing special, you didn't really get a choice. Dry horrid Meat and 3 veg. First drink was free. I thought they meant first alcoholic drink was free hence I ended up having to pay for my wine cos I ordered soft drink first. Don't expect bacon and eggs for brekky. It's just do it yourself toast, cereal and OJ.
The light and sound show more than made up for the food. The kids loved it and would happily see it again. Some of my favourite attractions would be the mine tour, gold panning and the old family photos you can get taken where you dress up. The staff were very friendly and informative.
If you go as a family, definitely go for the weekend so your not rushing around and you have enough time to see everything.
