Review:

We had breakfast (Play n Dine) here in early October 2012. We really enjoyed it, as did our 2-year-old daughter. There was plenty of choice for a fussy pre-schooler (she enjoyed cereals, yoghurt, fruit and eggs), a fussy vegetarian (I had cereals, eggs, potatoes, waffles, fruits, endless cakes and pastries) and my husband enjoyed the sausages and bacon. There was plenty of tea, coffee, juice, milk etc too and the servers were great at clearing and making sure you had everything you needed.
We were close to the action and Tink loved all the extra dancing and singing and the characters and Cast Members were great. She loved meeting all of them, she was especially smitten with Jake but it was June who really took her time with her, lots of kisses and she even got her to come over and dance with her. It was noisy and there was a lot going on but for us that only added to the experience. It was clean, friendly, well stocked with food and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. We will definitely return there again.
