    Yes, can split meals at all of them. And I will add that Confisco's Grill is also very good. I was there last weekend and had the Penne Puttenesca- Mild Italian Sausage, Kalamata Olives, Fried Pepperoncini, and Roasted Garlic, with Penne Pasta tossed in a Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce. $11.99

    For dessert I had 6 Mini Cream Puffs (3 Vanilla filled, 3 Chocolate filled):

    To go back to the OPs claim that Disney is stupid for passing on HP, lets see a show of hands of how many people think it would look as amazing if TDO did it.

    It would have been value engineered.

    You are right, we would have gotten the Reader's Digest version of the land.

    It would most likely look very similar since JK Rowling had very strict rules and guidelines and the buildings, castle, train etc are all modeled very closely after the movies.

    Disney didn't like the rules so they passed

    The point was that Disney would have just built less of it,

    Or that would and did happen. My point is that what you see at Universal, you would never have seen at WDW with the current management.

    I think any new WWoHP Phase 1 fixing (Forbidden Journey show building rock work, and Dragon Challenge refurbishment) in 2015 to coincide with Phase 2. Dragon Challenge will likely get refurbed along with the Hogwarts Express because they are in the same plot of land (The train station and Dragons will be right next to each other)

    If Disney had been smart enough to snap up the rights to the Harry Potter books, and then made Potter movies, and then built rides based on them, and they were as good as Universal's, then I'd be delighted that the Potter rides were in a Disney park.

    But frankly, I'd rather that Disney look to its own legacy and build rides based on Disney films like Fantasia (demons, unicorns, gods, sorcerers...it has it all to make a kickass ride). Or build Beastly Kingdomme. Disney could easily outdo Potter if it tried, with its own creations. But nooooooo, Iger has no faith in them, he had to buy Avatar. :mad:

    Yeah, I like the original school for learning magic, it was in that little old Disney movie with bedknobs and broomsticks... hmm... changing humans into animal forms, levitation spells, turning into armor to life to fight in a final battle, sounds familiar. Disney should build a Portabello Road with shops, restaurants, etc. and let it lead to a EuroLand with Big Ben, Notre Dame Cathedral, etc. Why isn't there a Mary Poppins or Hunchback ride?

    Good question. One of the most iconic Disney films is so unrepresented at the parks.

    Heck yeah, at least a Mary Poppins ride or attraction. That movie was Walt's shining jewel, it won all kinds of awards, but as far as TDO is concerned, it doesn't exist. :(
