We went only for the shows and the Christmas decorations and we were not disappointed. We saw all the shows but we liked the Christmas Carol the best. There were many shops to look at Christmas trees beautifully decorated. The real treat is at night when the lights come on because it is the most amazing thing I have seen. Just breathtaking. Take the train ride as it is entertaining.
Food: We ate at Mollys Mill buffet and it was ok at best. The turkey was the rolled turkey and my wife actually thought we we eating pork. The sides were pretty good. They have many choices inside the park to eat at. I would select one of those next time because it is faster to be served and get on with the day.
TIP We bought our Silver dollar tickets at one of the tourism locations and got the second day free. Also if you book your hotel and shows you get a discount. We did not do that because we like the option of cancelling our trip if we need to without losing any money.
