Thank you so much for your reply - I appreciate it. I did a bit more digging last night and have really found nothing but great reviews on the DCL - although any of the mediocre reviews involved the food, which don't bother me as much. Everyone's views on food can vastly differ.
We are pretty positive our daughter will love it regardless, like yours, she is very much into the dress-up and Disney princesses right now. Is it necessary to bring their own dresses or did they have quite a few in the clubs for the kids to use there? She has her own Merida dress, so I may bring that as a surprise for her to have in case they don't already have one.
