I really like the aquarium and the rainforest. I wish they would stay open as long as the other attractions during special hours.

The Festival of Lights is simply beautiful and worth the price of a ticket. The downside is Moody Gardens hasn't quite figured out how to manage the crowd side of things nor can you get in the endless entrance line and just use your Groupon as you can at other venues. First you have to redeem and print out tickets. If you don't do that at home, you will stand in long lines twice.

Lines were very long. I was not able to experience the market due to the 2 hour wait for ticket pick up.

Nice family atmosphere and we enjoyed walking along the water with the Christmas lights.

Parking was a nightmare and we got lucky and drove around back near pyramids (staff was directing us 10 blocks away to some overcrowded lot with shuttle service. Long lines for shuttles and actual festival of lights was overcrowded and with two kids under 4 years old was a mistake (luckily we had strollers, but felt like were in the middle of a stampede!), the only good thing were rest stops along the way with over priced beverages/food $3 hot chocolate, there was a Santa shop with photo shoot inside, however very crowded and kids could only see Santa through the window? Pretty sad this is Festival of Christmas lights and only appearance of Santa is through a window... Make sure you arrive much earlier than suggested time(6PM)festival of lights to avoid traffic jams and long wait times and don't forget to park towards back near Pyramids and it's only a 300ft-500ft walk to enter grounds. Next year we might give Moody gardens another chance, however if spending money and drive-time from Houston, I will probably venture out to another Festival to better please the family. Definitely a place for kids over 5 years old.
