Nice, not a lot of things to do but a nice relaxing scenery. There are other good food options if you don't choose the ticket with the meal. The guide sounds like a pre recorded record, but it was informative. It was a little hard of hearing but it was pretty good.

Great experience for adults and children! Food was delicious and totally worth adding. Everyone was very friendly. Arrive prob an hour earlier than start time. Our trip was for 230pm with boarding starting at 2pm. We arrived exactly at 2pm and line was very long. Line moved quickly but we missed out on prime seat at top two levels.

Picking up the tickets was super easy. we didn't go for the for with the lunch because we were concerned about allergy issues, but we found they still serve snacks (alligator sausage, jambalaya with chicken and sausage, nachos, etc). Foods were all great. all in all very enjoyable and the jazz was really nice.
