I got our tickets on Groupon and went for my daughter birthday. My 6 and 1 yr old loved it. We fed the animals but there were no giraffes to see. The worker were friendly. The walk around part of the park was nice too.

Yes, there are no restrictions on having your pet with you, as long as your dog can handle all the animals sticking their head in your car!
