    Can someone give me details on the Chip and Dale Campfire? Are the s'mores first, or the singing? How long is the singing? Is the movie last? How does it all take place? I read that the campfire is actually to the side.

    Lighting the 2 fires on either side of the stage/screen comes first and goes on thru the whole time. Let the smores begin.Bring your own or buy the fixins there.
    Next is the singing.
    Then comes the movie or movies if double feature night.

    NOTE: We find this to be a really great activity for either the first night at

    nice to veg-out.

    They usually have someone w/ a guitar come out 1st and sing songs while they light the 2 campfires. Then Chip and Dale come out. You can roast marshmallows the entire time. Then they start the movie.

    I definately recommend running to Walmart or the grocery store and buying your stuff to make s'mores. It's pretty expensive to buy it from the chuckwagon there. Also we always bring chairs or a blanket to lay on the ground while watching the movie. They do have benches but they tend to get a little uncomfortable after awhile...and sometimes the benches are all full.
