  • Wow! So amazed by the beauty of this place! From the minute you walk in the theatre you will be transformed into a royal magical experience. But the best part is when you look up at the ceiling..that is what will have your attention..if you are not careful-you will miss the show because you will be looking up!
  • Never had a bad experience. They always have great shows and the theater is always clean with great people to help you out with anything you need during your visit. My only complaint is the size of the seats. I usually end up rubbing elbows with the person next to me but it's understandable in order to maximize seating.
