    TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE! We went early today, drove about 1.5 hrs and I have to say that we were really disappointed! The info said at 9:30 was feeding the reindeers, we got there before and they were already fed, plus they were about to take them away, there was nothing to do for the kids. If you want to advertise the Nursery, fine, just don’t trick the people saying there is a FESTIVAL!!! I was shock to see there was nothing!
