If you are a frequent Disney traveler then you definitely need to adjust your expectations before going to this park. We are a family of four with kids 5 and 7 and took them to Idlewild in August 2010. This park is one of those classic amusement parks of yesterday which boasts tons of historical value. The park featured older style rides, aging buildings (the restrooms need redone & kept clean as they were dirty), and lots of mature trees overhead. Our kids really enjoyed most of the rides & things to do in the park (especially the Wild Mouse) but were almost too big for the Raccoon Lagoon section. Storybook forest was neat & the Mr. Roger's neighborhood ride was fun. Overall, it's an fun little amusement park to take your young family to & is a decent value for the money. Dining inside the park is available but the food isn't that great except for the food served at the Mine Shaft Kitchen (which is good). You can also take your own food inside the park if you like.
