    I am interested in taking my kids and other family members to Kingdom of Dreams. It has been a while since it has been opened, but I never knew what exactly it was.
    It is a place which would appeal to all my family members, and I would like to make plans to visit Kingdom of Dream sometime this month.

    I need to know what the Kingdom of Dreams entry fee is and also as there as stage shows. I would like to know if the entry fee includes the stage shows as well. If the entry fee doesn't include the stage shows, please give information on the costs for those.
