    Has anyone done this :unsure: How many people can it hold. There will be 7 of us and I thought it would be something different to do.

    Well there was only two of us, but I'd say probably four adults and maybe a couple of kids.. not many more than that :/

    We did the fort wilderness one $35.00 for 25 minutes but there's one at the wilderness lodge too which is apparently $60 for 25mins.

    They also do it at saratoga and of course port orleans but I really think the wilderness ones would be the best :)

    Thanks, we might have to have a separate one then, the girls are 14, 12 and 5 so as far as Disney are concerned the older two are classed as adults.

    I have a feeling though that it will be Chris and I with the youngest, she is normally glued to Chris' side when we see them :lol:

    We wanted to do the WL one a year or two ago, but it was sold out. They go fast, so don't delay in booking if you want to do it. I think they have hot chocolate too?

    I know you and Chris will enjoy it and little Livvie should too! :yes:
