Crossroads Village. I didn't like the tacked on fee, but honestly the price wasn't too bad. And while we were there they gave us information about their Halloween and Winter programs. And those tickets are even cheaper! It's a fee to get into Crossroads Village and then a little extra for a train and/or boat ride.
Well, back to the bear. Somewhere between that purchase and the car, he was lost. I called and messaged them to see if someone turned it into Lost and Found. They messaged me back and gave me a number to call. I called her and left a message. I really didn't think she was going to be able to help me. But she calls me back and says that no one turned one in, but after a hunt she did fine one final bear (a small miracle considering they were on clearance) and she mailed CW his bear! I mean, not asking anything of me, just got my address and CW's name and boom, right to our door! You'd have thought it was his birthday and Christmas all rolled into one. It's now his favorite doll.
We will be back. It's a great family day-venture. There are lots of hotels in the area, and even some camping. But it's less than a 2 hour drive for us, so it easy to make a day of it. I'm not sure how busy they get for the regular days, but if you want to go see Thomas, buy in advance.
And if you weren't sick of looking at my kids, I made a YouTube video of all the pictures and videos I captured with my phone.
