Just got home from the Santa weekend today and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. We think it was grossly overpriced and was anything but magical.
On arriving we were greeted by an elf, that my kids thought was amazing. Kids posted their letter to Santa via Buddy

If you want a fun filled Christmas weekend. Look no further. Greeted by the Elves on arrival with mince pies and letters to Santa. The Panto had more Ad libs in it than script I'm sure. But was hilariously funny. You would normally pay lots of money to see something like that.

If you are a resident in the hotel do you have to pay for using the cinema? On of my boys will unlikely sit through an entire film so just checking.
We were here last year and didn’t but we had booked a package so don’t know if that’s different.

We arrive on Friday and have dinner included on our first night. Where is best to eat with kids? The Aspect looks a bit fine dining, what is the Italian and burger place like? Is there a carvery place also? Thanks
Found the Italian very poor in quality of food and service. The Aspect was expensive and the burger bar not our thing. We went into town and had a great time both food and entertainment was spot on.
