Anyone have experience with Minecraft Realms?

I'm considering purchasing Minecraft Realms for my sons and their friends, but I have a few reservations. Looking for tales from early adopters.

For background, I've been playing since early beta, and I've run servers for my son and his friends before (bukkit). Frankly, running a server really sucked. I have very little free time and just could not keep up with version control, whitelists, handling griefers etc.
It looks like Realms solves the complexity problem (albeit at the cost of texture or resource packs, but I'm fine with vanilla). I'm concerned, however, because no where does Mojang (or the wiki) delineate exactly what commands are available to Ops. For example, could I as Op work in Creative to build cool dungeons for the players working Survival? If everyone is tired of our world, can I just start up a new one or are you stuck with the first one out of the gate?
Anyway, all experiences, tales of woe or joy much appreciated!
