Memories Of Sesame Place!

Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

I havent been able to post about my vacation so I guess il start doing that now lol Our favorite place was definitely Sesame Place even though it was about a 2 hour drive from New York but the park brought alot of good child hood memories and I was able to give my children the same wonderful memories. We got on all the wet rides and a few roller coasters and we had lunch with Elmo and the sesame street crew! The only thing I didnt like about sesame street is that they try to get you for your money. For example the characters dressed up as sesame street would rush over to you insisting you take a picture with them and your kids and after you take a pic with your own camera or cell phone they charge you 15 dollars. Other than that, we had a blast and my kids are ready to go back next summer!

Oh! I didnt even know there was still a Sesame Place, (based on Sesame Street right?), my aunt took me to the one that used to be in Dallas when I was 2 or 3, it was SO much fun

Your children are adorable! I think it is a bit ridiculous to charge your $15 to take a picture with you own camera. They know when the characters are around that the children are going to want to get their pictures taken with them. It is all about the money. It does sound like a fun place to be and a great place to take your children. Sesame Street has been around a long time so we all can relate to it.

15 bucks? Even with your own camera? Only in America.

I'd take a pretty dim view of being charged to take pictures with my own camera.

That would be a wonderful place to visit with kids. Yep, you really have to be aware that it is all about the money at those places.

$15.00 for a picture? What a total rip off!

My kids would have loved that. It does sound hard on the pocketbook, but would be nice for once in awhile.

Yeah it was very expensive to go but worth it, Tickets alone are 60 dollars each, pluse food, drinks, and buying the kids each a toy. You need to go with 500 USD atleast

We are season ticket holders at Sesame Place and I have never been charged for taking money with my own camera. In fact you aren't charged as the pictures are taken at all. They give you a wristband and you can go later and pay for the pictures THEY took if you want too but you don't have to. We love Sesame Place.
