Does anybody know if they always run the special kids stay and eat and play for free each year or was it just this year?

They did it in the past, which is why we went in 2007 and we liked it so much, we returned twice, even when our older child had "aged out."

It was an INSANELY popular promotion and I was told that occupancy dropped like a stone when they altered the policy. I think rescinding that policy is like trying to unring a bell. Charging for kids created an enormous amount of ill-will and empty rooms--death to a resort.

My guess is that they'll keep it. But don't quote me!

They still have children free, but the age has changed. Previously it was up to age 17. If you think about it, teens will eat more than many adults, and have many frozen drinks which is probably why they changed it.

Thanks to both of you for your help. I was looking to go next year but it cost to much to bring the kids but with that it would help out.
