We arrived on a Saturday and checked out the next day (as most people do..). Our group included my husband, myself and our three kids (7 - boy, 10-girl, 12-girl). I would suggest that you arrive earlier than the 1:00 water park opening for new guests and have lunch and start your "Magiquest". Our two youngest 'LOVED' the Magiquest as much or more than the water park. Check in can be a beast so do so earlier than later. The experience could have been more fun if the staff was as happy and pleasant as the decore was 'Disney'. They tended to look like bored small town teenagers (as they were..). The breakfast and dinner buffet was better and quicker than the sit down restaurant which should be avoided if possible (slightly dirty, very slow service, so-so food). We chose the "cabin" style room. It was clean and cute but the kid's TV didn't work too well and the beds were ridiculously uncomfortable for them. Next time we will get a cheaper regular room. There is a lot to do and we didn't get to everything. Upon returning home, my son was diagnosed with folliculitis (hot tub rash) and is on antibiotics. I called to let the water park manager know. He assured me that the hot tub is drained WEEKLY. With the thousands of people that pass through this place weekly (800 rooms of families, 88% capacity during our trip in Oct.08), I would suggest that the hot tub be drained daily. All in all, we had a good time and will be back.
