    Be Sure to Try: the chicken & beans were really good! And there’s nothing like fresh watermellon in the summer!

    General tips: Make sure to get there early and secure a seat at a table near the dancefloor. That way, you will be the closest to the characters when they arrive (if you want to dance or get autographs with them)

    MouseForLess tips: This is an all-you-can-eat buffet, and the price includes unlimited drinks, including beer & wine, as well as tax and gratuity. While $38 for an adult/$25 for a child may seem like a lot, when you take out tax/gratuity, it’s about $30/$20 per person (or $28/$18 if you take out the cost of a drink). Considering that, for adults, it includes unlimited alcohol as well as drinks, and it’s not a bad deal (if still a little pricey)… especially when throwing in the atmosphere: the characters, the band, the various little acts.

    Extra Comments: The all-you-can-eat buffet includes: BBQ pork ribs, baked chicken, hot dogs with all the fixin’s, corn-on-the-cob, baked beans, coleslaw, pasta salad, corn bread, watermelon, marble cake, Unlimited draft beer, wine, lemonade, and iced tea.

    This was a lot of fun, though very crowded. Food was plentiful, however, and the CMs were constantly refilling everything, so you never had to worry about not getting something to eat. The characters didn’t do much dancing with everyone, mainly because they were literally swamped by eager children wanting autographs every time they came out. The characters would come out for a half-hour and then leave for another half-hour before returning again, so if you miss them the first time, they’ll return again. The whole thing lasts for about three hours, if you stay from start to finish.

    The atmosphere was great, and the band really got everyone into the swing of things. Plenty of singing and dancing, and they got people onto the dancefloor and taught them dances, too. There were different rodeo-style acts throughout the evening, such as a guy doing stunts with a whip. They also honor people with birthdays and anniversaries by having a special song just for them, and getting people up on stage. Great way to celebrate a special occasion! Even though John and I were not yet married (we went 3 days before our wedding), we got a special dance all the same. :)

    The Backyard BBQ is only held on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and only offered seasonally.
