Tips for Families

I would plan a 5 day visit at least, unless you live near by. I would buy the all inclusive tickets. Also see City Park, the Art museum, WW2 (with older kids) and Mardi Gras World.

Tips for Families

Don't worry about lunch. There is a great little eatery right there onsite that offers anything a kid could want. Don't miss the gift shop. The products are not too pricey and there is a lot to choose from. Don't forget to turn off your camera flash. The pictures of glass tanks do NOT like the flash and you will not get a good picture.

If you are planning to visit the Audubon Zoo and Insectarium, consider purchasing a combo pass to save money. Plan to spend at least two hours exploring the aquarium.

Tips for Families

Go early for less crowd. If you want to feed the sting rays buy your tokens early, sometimes they sell out.
