You Asked, We Listened! What's New And Different?

At the close of each Event, we ask for your feedback through the On-Site Guest Survey.   We genuinely want your opinion about what worked, what didn’t, what you want to see and do, and what we how can improve.  A few of the changes we made this year are below.  Please be sure to complete your On-Site Guest Survey at the end of the Event to make your voice heard!

This year, enjoy more flexibility to visit the Gift Shoppe!
