Loved it--totally got my retail therapy at the General Store, and improved my brain by touring the museum. I do wish the deli used trays, but the method of ordering our sandwiches--by machine!! --was kinda cool. The sandwiches were GREAT. Wish the tables in the deli had built-in USB or electric outlets. Everybody in the place was on an electrical device, so I think they would have appreciated it too.
Take your time here and talk to the rangers. They have lots of information. The movies were informative and the theater comfortable. Getting around the park was so easy with the free shuttle buses. We were there on labor day weekend so Friday and Saturday were ridiculously busy, but still doable, and the park employees were friendly and patient. By Sunday things had calmed down. If you want to take one of the many tours, book online ahead of time. They were sold out on Friday, but we were able to book a Sunday tour on Saturday.
