Not a bad seat in the house. Eat with your hands and the food was good too. The show was both fun and had great riding with horses.
We've been to DS a number of times. It is always fun and the good is always good. We were impressed with the new changes to the show, especially the beautiful new backdrop. It was our 2 yo first time, and he loved it! Great for all ages. Tip for parents with small children: if you ask to sit in the top row, you are in chairs instead of the bench, making it much easier to get your little ones to the potty!
The first thing that totally turned me off about this place was that you're asked to get there 45 minutes early for a saloon show that is nothing more than a warm up show. This could easily be skipped. Then you're herded into the arena and set up at bench style seating. The meal is served in a very quick fashion and you're left to eat this with your hands as there is no silverware. While your attempting to eat your food with your bare hands, it's dark in the arena and there are horses riding on a dirt floor arena kicking up dirt into the first several rows. I suggest sitting as far back as you can to keep dirt from getting in your food. The show is decent, but there are better shows to attend in the Pigeon Forge area.
Although they said the show has changed, it was pretty much the same except for the special effects, which were spectacular. The food was very good and the servers work really hard. Really enjoyed the new set.
