    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    Being in EPCOT is not an everyday occurrence. Therefore, anyplace that I have a sit down dinner, and that charges me $400 for a group of three to have said sit down dinner better be the best food I have ever had. Le Cellier at $240 for 3 WITH a bottle of wine is high, but fine. $400 for what...

    And I want Barbarella as my waitress. And something to make me forget I dropped $320 on dinner for 3 people... but not their booze, because that is going to push me over the $400 mark.

    News Space 220 Restaurant dining experience at Epcot's Future World

    ??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? Having just seen the prices I am curious how $55 for an appetizer and an entre for 1 person seems "reasonable"? If I got a Cesar Salad and a burger for $55, +$7 tax, +$10 tip, (no booze, just...

    They don't "break down", 90% of stops are due to disabled boarding at the exit. Also disabled exiting as well.

    Because the public has voiced their frustration with having to know what restaurants 6 months out and what rides 90 days out. To non Disney folks that was just insane. As a WDW veteran I thought the FP that far out was insane as well. This puts it much more in the moment. It matches up your...

    I agree. I imagine Genie will be all over your butt if you are approaching a reservation and are nowhere near the location you need to be. I'd like if they had app based nags that reached out into the real world. Like say you are on Haunted Mansion, they could have the Ghost Host speak to you...

    Time, quality, and the desire for you to have an overall positive experience. If your room at Days Inn has a problem they are not as motivated to fix it as All Star Movies is going to be. Same as when I had a problem with my dining plan, the resort person I spoke with was happy to fix it. It...

    In the last year or so of FP+ they had cut that grace period down to like 10-15min (unless you had a verifiable reason, like stuck on a ride or monorail, etc.

    I've been doing spreadsheets for over 20yrs. Mainly to make sure we balanced our time at the different parks, but also to keep track of FP times, dinner reservations, etc. This change means I don't need to plan out FPs 3 months out, back to the old FP process of same day. I hope they keep the...

    From what I read and heard you would not lose it. The only limit is in the number of LLs you can get in a day. They said "1 or 2 per day."

    Back in the day you MIGHT have been able to score a FP for FOP. It took us 3yrs to ride Midway Mania. Line was always hours long within 10 min of opening and the FPs were out to the end of the day. The good old days were nasty, brutish, and short.

    It is more than that from a scheduling point of view. They are trying to provide the best to the most. If there is an "unlimited" option that messes with the scheduling. One tour group with a Space Mountain obsession could nix the experience for hundreds of other guests.

    Yes, and the look of a 5hr line snaking through the park was bad show.

    From your lips to Bob's ears. I'd like 1/3 the attention that goes into cupcakes to be directed at rum drinks. Bring back El Pirate y el Perico and make it 21+ rum bar.
