"Worth the money"
December, 2017
Check out the menu. Everything they serve taste wonderful. The soup is the best. And you can buy some in the gift shop for $7-$8 a bag. You do eat with your hands. Get over it because its fun. They have moist towlets and give you a hot wet towel at end meal.
The dessert is Apple turnover, not my favorite but its ok.
The main show is at least 1.5 long. Plus theres a carriage room pre-show if you come early enough to catch it. You are kinda cramped together, but during the show there is often crowd participation(North Pole vs South Pole) is initiated and also fun.
Dont come if your a snob and people/crowds make you cranky... Do not bring kids that you cannot control and allow to cause problems for others since you are sharing space. Dont ruin someone elses Christmas show experience simply because your thanking baby Jesus hisself that for once your kid/kids are attacking someone else and not you.
The only weird thing is that the gift shop is only open during the times the estab has opened for its dinners and shows... So if your vacationing and need to leave you cant have access to the gift shop to buy your last minute fixing to leave town decisions.
Esp weird when it's Christmas season and people can go back in and buy more stuff as gifts!
Come on Dolly! Let's get the gift shop open for people on the go.

This is a very fun entertaining show and they feed you a great dinner that is more than you can eat. They also have a preshow featuring a juggler that is also very interesting to watch. You will not be disappointed. We have been several times and always go if we are in the area.

"Six year old granddaughter had a blast."
August, 2016
Great show, great food. Purchased tickets on-line for 4 adults, one granddaughter. Good family entertainment. Be sure and give yourself a few extra minutes for traffic, parking and getting in. Usually a sold out show. Recently moved to eastern Oklahoma. Branson is our new vacation destination.

The food is INCREDIBLE the chicken and potatoes and everything is great but now I am a vegetarian and the vegetarian option isn’t great. That’s the only reason I didn’t give the last star. It’s just pasta with some vegetables in it and it’s not bad just a bit bland. Although you also get the side dishes that come with the normal meal and they are delicious. The show itself is great and very entertaining. Iv gone with both my family and friends and everyone enjoys it.the servers are all very nice as well. Definitely reccomend.
