Everyone involved with the panda experience was fantastic. Seeing behind the scenes, feeding Wang Wang and seeing them both up close was surreal. Worth every cent.

An early wakeup was so worth it to see the pandas in action searching for their breakfast and seeing them up close eating their bamboo! We were lucky enough to see both Wang Wang and Fu Ni climb trees, Fu Ni even went all the way up and sat there, I've attached a pic to show!
