    Although we did not experience all the Resort had to offer, the Indoor park, restaurants, shops, and rooms were outstanding. Vehicle queuing both coming and going was a little bit of a pain, but overall it was an amazing stay!

    We normally check in around 3pm. If you're checking in earlier (e.g. the room isn't ready), they'll provide wrist bans to enjoy the park and will call you when room is ready.
