          How many different buffets can you go to for dinner? Do separate dinner buffets operate at the same time at Esmeralda? Do you also have access to the other resorts dinner buffets? Thank you

          Hi, I would like to know if the guests of the esmeralda are allowed to use the waterpark at the fantasia? I read that if you pay 10$-15$ an adult and free for kids for the day than you are allowed. Is this true? Please answer honestly. Thank you
