    Any tips, advice, etc? We've never been and are taking the girls (1 & 5) at the end of the month. We're all taking the Via and staying at the Westin Harbour. I work/have worked downtown so we know our way around well enough. We're staying 2 nights are are thinking of taking a GO bus to Vaughan Mills to check out Lego Land.
    I've heard we need to bring tons of drinks and food in a cooler if possible b/c of the prices (for the island that is).

    If they like rides get the bracelet. As you walk around the island it's great to be able to get into any line up for the rides and not worry about tickets. We love Centreville! Have fun!

    Yes, definitely bring your own food. Blanket would be great for a picnic (if you have wagon), and lots of drinks! I would make sure you have their bathing suits and towels as there is a little splash pad and a beach on the far side of the island. I would get to the ferry fairly early so you don't have a big wait! The ticket numbers for each ride are on their website and if you click the picture it tells you

    We did bracelets last year and we definitely got our money's worth and then some! We brought our own lunch and drinks with us. They do have picnic tables you can sit at but they can be pretty busy.

    Great advice, thanks everyone! I'm sure my 5yo will make use of a bracelet so that sounds like a good plan
