  1. What is the age limit for kids? We have one 11 year old & one twelve year old. Is there a site for hotels & meal details?

  2. Do I send an address to BJS or where exactly? We have many friends & family in die BRD, but it would be lovely to take our 11 & 12 old boys to see these! I have only seen two!
