    We almost lost our voices from all the "oohing" and "ahhing" at the dazzling lights of Times Square! Between snapping pics with costumed characters (we may or may not have slow-danced with Batman) and stumbling upon historic landmarks, this place was a whirlwind of unforgettable (and slightly overwhelming) experiences. 10/10, would recommend earplugs and comfortable shoes!!!!

    We had a couple of hours to spare on our last day in NYC and one attraction left on our Explorer Pass to headed off to Madame Tussauds. Itreally is prettyv cheesy, but there has been some effort put into grouping the celebrities and present them thematically. There is also a 10 minute Marvel Universe 4D movie which is entertaining enough.

    Saw Wicked and it was amazing! The seats are a little small if you are on the taller side. Everything else was great. Will definitely be back to see the show again!

    Incredible experience watching Aladin here. Awesome show and the place is just absolutely stunning, it is not cheap but worthwhile.

    We literally followed the music. We could hear the most amazing soulful and powerful music and we had to figure out where it was coming from. We only stayed for a short time due to time contraints, however was well worth a visit. The spiritual music was truly beautiful and awe-inspiring.

    The Broadway theater on Broadway is spacious and beautifully and ornately decorated. It is a wonderful setting to enjoy a show - I saw the Great Gatsby - superb!

    I just have to give a BIG Texas thank you to the gentleman at the ticket counter on July 11th! We had tickets for 1pm and I had it in my head it was at 2. We got there late and he did a miracle for us to be able to see it that night in a similar section! My mother would have been out so much money and he was so kind and only gave me a little bit of a hard time, haha. LOVED the show (we saw MJ), the theater was very nice with bathroom attendant and all. It was a highlight of our trip that we could have easily missed!

    What a great theatre!!!! Went to see Moulin Rouge....with guest star Boy George. The show was fantastic set in this amazing theatre. Seats were pretty comfy, not much leg room, but then again I have long legs. At intermission I walked up to the balcony and have to say the view from up there was spectacular...you could see the entire stage. The crew at the theatre did a great job getting everyone in and out...and help finding seats.

    We saw Hamilton at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. The show was fantastic! I cannot wait to go back and see another Broadway show. We had seats in the area of G 17- through 23 and the view was fine for us. The seating is tight.. just small seats and not a lot of legroom. So if you’re a tall person, you may want to get an aisle seat.

    Incredible show in a beautiful venue...for both kids (ages 6+) and adults. You won't be disappointed. The New Amsterdam Theatre is located at 214 West 42nd Street in NYC. Booster seats area available for the littles. The theatre staff is incredibly helpful. Get your snackies in advance of the show, because the lines can be long at intermission.

    I saw a matinee at the Winter Garden Theatre. The theatre itself is very good but the ladies rooms need to be renovated. Also the ladies rooms are on the same level as the entrance and consequently the line during intermission extends to inside the theatre!

    I've long wanted to visit Birdland and staying at the Intercontinental Hotel across the street, a smile crept across my face when I noted we were so close.

    We made a reservation online and arrived around 30 minutes prior to our showtime. We were shown to a great table on the rail, we ordered drinks and an appetizer, and settled in for exactly what we came for. The music, ambiance, service, and food and drink were all just right.

    We will definitely add a visit to Birdland to our future visits to New York...
