    I didn't even know Toothsome had food, thought it was just a chocolate/sweets shop.

    You know...Disney has a refill mug too - that lasts for the entire length of visit. Sure it isn't in the park, but it's a lot cheaper than $8.99 a day.

    Blaze does a great job with quick service pizza. If they stuck to 4 types, no customization, the line would move real quick.

    Except the reason they're successful is because of their customization sooooo

    Therefore, Blaze needs to install additional capacity to support the expected crowd levels as not to lose revenue to nearby competition..

    I doubt they're losing revenue. Who are they competing against? D-Lux? I don't think so.

    They're already the best bargain in the Springs and they aren't going to uproot their business model when they're already doing immense volume.

    Anyway, this is off-topic.

    But we are talking about the in park beverage pricing where a single soft drink is nearly 4.00 so 8.99 for all one can drink seems pretty good to me.


    Their resorts also have a mug system where a lengh of stay was $13.99

    Oh and neither has a 'refill timer'

    I'm sure Spirit will care about mugs and pizza (and I was guilty of contributing to the pizza discussion so I apologize ...) ...

    We're definitely not on topic anymore which @WDW1974 and @The Mom asked us to do.

    Honesty I don't drink sodas and my children don't either. I think they are very unhealthy. Only reason for a soda is in your crown and ginger or jack and coke. Captain and sprite is good as well.

    Also no way I'm a carrying around a bunch of cups in a theme park.

    So you view soda as unhealthy, but you have no problem with alcohol? ;)

    Think the BGM has been changed for the summer promotion. It's usually music from Fantasia and a few other Disney tunes mixed in.

    No they need to install a capacity management system which manages staffing and consumables purchasing based on pre-order data.

    Interesting thought how much of the profit crisis at WDW is caused by TS venues turning customers away from half full eateries???

    While the ADR and fine system gives you cost predictability it also caps potential profit.

    Since Disney apparently wants the 'one and done' crowd how many of those understand that ADR is a requirement??? And how many of those end up stuck using TS credits for QS

    I'd say having a cocktail here and there is much more healthy than chugging big gulps every day.
    Especially say, on your flight to Shanghai or Tokyo. #OnTopic

    And the $8.99 a day is if you buy like 5 of them... If you only want one its $14.99 a day
