FOTL was great. Although it wasn't crowded, some of the more popular rides had wait times of up to 45 minutes. We used FOTL for almost every ride. It was terrific.
I was surprised to find that even with FOTL we had about a 15 minute wait for dueling dragons. Our line just seemed to merge with the regular line.
Overall, we were very impressed with FOTL and wouldn't dream of staying offsite.
The pool was wonderful. The slide was excellent -a very smooth ride. There are pool floats everywhere. My son loved playing basketball in the pool as well. I enjoyed drinks by the pool (only $4.50 plus tip for a pina coloda to be delivered to your beach chair) and the jacuzzi at night. There are also loads of games near the pool: ping pong, shuffle board, chess, and table pool. There is also a small game room near the pool with 2 air hockey tables (my favorite).
Unlike others who have posted, I didn't find the music to be loud at all. In fact, it was not as loud as I would have liked. The underwater sound is okay, but again not as loud as I expected.
I'm still feeling kinda crummy, but thanks for the good wishes. Have a grea time!
