    Great new attractions but wait times are ridiculous with young children. You shouldn’t need to pay additional money to jump the queues just to go on the attractions without waiting over an hour even 2 at times. The made the trip very disappointing at times. Greed seems to be taking over the Disney dream.

    Trusted Customer reviewed Disney's Hollywood Studios 14 Jun, 2024

  • 4 stars:

    There seems to be an age bracket being missed out. The children’s area with small slides and features is great but has a height limit for most items. My son is 7 and was unable to play with his 5 year old sister. There were no other areas for him to enjoy with some freedom.

  • 4 stars:

    Great new attractions but the visit was tainted by ridiculous wait times. Greed is destroying the Disney dream and taking away the enjoyment for young children. Genie plus should not be a necessity to enjoy the attractions you have already paid to visit

    Trusted Customer reviewed Magic Kingdom Park 14 Jun, 2024

  • 4 stars:

    The flowers and topiary were amazing! Some great food booths around the world too. More attractions are needed around the world though. It is a long walk for children with little for them to do in some areas which means the queues for the few items there can be horrendous.

    Trusted Customer reviewed Epcot 14 Jun, 2024

  • 4 stars:

    Disappointing to find 90% of Dinoland closed. Refurb is coming but until this happens catering for guests should continue. Issues with queue times with young children and also ability for Children to see some shows when not at the front of the seating areas.
