My son doesn't overly express joy for much. He tends to express what he doesn't like more, and he didn't have any complaints. The other kids looked like they had a blast. Considering they get a 2 hour experience, some small toys (a bandana, sword, eye patch, candy, tatoos, pencil, tattoos, and a few other trinkets that I can't think of) and you get a couple of free hours to get things done (laundry? pack?) I think it's worth it. Coming from another resort you would need to think of something to waste a couple of hours on at the resort the kids were doing the adventure- unless you had your own vehicle.

I don't think you have to be staying there to take advantage of it.

That sounds like the perfect place for couples with a little boy to go spend a couple hours doing....casual drink at the pool bar and a nice little horsey drawn carriage ride for just the two of them.

Cmon on you romantics...its a win...win....win!

This past June my DH and I took 4 kids to DW- our two nephews (14 and 10), our niece (8) and their step sister (11). It was the first trip for all of them. Well, before the trip, the step-sisters uncle purchased them all a starter pin trading set. Well, we like to have never gotten anything else done at the parks because that's all they wanted to do was pin trading (DH included!). By the end of the week, they could spot a pin trader from across a crowded park and they would all descend on that poor person like a pack of vultures. They purchased almost no other souverniers. They all spent their shopping money on new pins. Your post above made me think about that.

Glad you had a good trip!
