I travelled with 4 other people, and we all had differing options of it, I found it strange it's a mixture of like old Western America, 1950's america (think grease) and San Francisco.... My young child found it scary at night, my husband loved it
Be aware don't let younger children view the "dollar" man (a dummy) being electrocuted it was horrific!

Old Town is overpriced and overrated. The staff that works their are all rude. The go carts are $7 a person and the girl that works there is always yelling at the kids and making rude gestures. The zip line was out of order. The bumper cars are also overpriced and the girl there is extremely unfriendly. Very hard to find parking as well. Not worth the visit.

My husband and I visited Old Town with our 18 month old son and had a great time. It reminds me of a family-friendly, cleaner New Orleans. It was really clean, restaurants/taverns everywhere, lots of arcade games and stores. We enjoyed just strolling with our toddler, who really loved the rock shop. It was relaxing just walking along and not having to worry about traffic or anything. There were 3 rides that our son was tall enough to go on, but he's really not a thrill seeker so he didn't enjoy it! The one place I wanted to visit before we left was the popcorn factory. It had a sign on the door stating "Be Back Soon", so we stood at the door and waited to see if anyone would open up. We could staff in there. Finally, after about fifteen minutes, I saw a girl in the window sweeping the floor. I knocked and asked how long it would be. She gestured that she didn't know and then said it would be 20 minutes. We didn't want to wait so we left. Overall, a good time and would go back.

Every trip that I make to Orlando, I always make a stop at Old Town. It is fun and lots to do and see. Everyone that I bring there with me always has such a good time. Can't wait to come back!
