Value of food is of a $10/per person buffet. It however costs $50 per adult and a mind blowing $25 per child. You are basically paying for the character encounter. Service was great.

Our waitress was wonderful. Characters came by twice. But loud and food ok. The price was astronomical had we not had a meal plan. Would recommend just to see the characters.

The characters come by one at a time to visit your table, sign autograph books and take pictures. The server will usually give you a heads up as to when the next character is on their way so you don’t miss them. But like I... More
