It is what it is.

My wife and the girls enjoyed this attraction. I didn't, as expected. There isn't really much to it but luckily its attached to the mall so we were able to accomplish some things.

I visited the Barbie Dreamhouse in Fort Lauderdale in March 2014 and had a blast! To be honest, I'm 44 and have loved Barbie all my life. I firmly believe that you get out of something, what you put into it. I went here with total joy and excitement. Yes, it was a little more less glamorous than I was... More

We went here thinking it would the ultimate experience! It was very overpriced, and the dream house was dirty and very disorganized. Save your money.

Paid for a VIP pass and was expecting a lot more. Entrance is not cheap and staff aren't too bothered. You'd expect staff to be a little more enthusiastic when making up the girls for the fashion show. My 5 year old daughter was made to wear a dress for a 10 year old which she kept tripping over.

My 4yr old grandaughter and neice enjoyed every minute of the barbie dreamhouse experience! We did the vip and it was a memorable keepsake for us to take pictures and record them walking down the catwalk. There little faces light up every time they look at pics.

We visited Fort Lauderdale MAINLY because of this attraction. We promised our girls to come over and let them "see" where Barbie "lives". They were just thrilled to go there. The presenter, however, seemed to be rushing us a bit from one room to another. That was the one and only con we can think of, in relation to this... More

My girls absolutely loved it here. Ages 3 & 7. We bought the VIP experience which was worth the money. They loved getting their make up done and going backstage to dress up for the mini fashion show so they could perform for the parents.

I went with my sister and niece. It was a really neat experience, I don't think we'd do it again though. There wasn't a whole lot to do, but it was an experience I enjoyed, seeing a totally pink room, a blue room... Etc.. I thought it was all cute. We got a living social coupon so that's why we...
