    No clue how anyone can go on that thing. It litterally goes straight up.

    They don't have a Southern California pass for a 1 day deal. It's $76.00 for an adult and $68.00 for a child. They do have a Southern California annual pass which is $239.00 and thats with 215 days you can go. Everything is just so high..that we can never do anything as a family. I know...that's what I get for having so many kids and I wouldn't change a thing.


    That's just nuts. Mr Walt is turning over in his grave as he wanted this to be a family park. How can families enjoy it..if the price to get in are so high.

    well when we come in Feb, will be happy to hang out in DTD with you guys!!!
    maybe they will have a 2for sale come out! we don't care where we hang out, just want to spend sometime with you all!
    I know you wouldn't change a thing! your kids are your world!!!

    its sad that the prices keep going up, but I guess they figure they can since people keep going!

    hey are you going to get your DC day up this week?? I'm not going to until next week, so wanted to wait until you put yours up!

    We get all checked in and got our badges. We were told that the girls swim with the Dolphins would be at 12:20pm. Perfect timing.

    I can't wait to read yours. Unfortunately..the battery died in the camera and I didn't get all the pictures I wanted.
    Thank you Gail:hug:
    Michelle..It's so worth it. I highly recommend it.
    Thank you for following along. The girls had a blast picking their pearl.

    Kris, can I just say that you were brave to go into the sting ray pool? I think I would be like Megan - freaked out!:scared: The pictures of the sting rays came out nice and so did the fishes.

    Hope the Dis boards are working better for you next time!

    Those are awesome pictures, but no way could you get me in those waters!! I hate thinking about fish swimming under me in the lake or ocean, I can't imagine having my feet next to them on purpose!
