Our FREE parking lot is directly across the street from the restaurants' parking lots—a quick and easy stroll to the DCM.

Please help us be good neighbors and do not park in front of the nearby restaurants.




Snacks, water, juice, and coffee are available for purchase in our Fun in Store gift shop. Outside food and beverage is also permitted into the DCM; seating is limited.


We can't say enough good things about our friends and neighbors: Joe's Crab Shack, Iron Hill, and Big Fish Grill. All are family-friendly and delicious!
