Fries and drinks... here I go complaining.

Okay, I usually really look forward to the counter service fries at Disney World. My last trip was Aug. 2014. What the heck happened? This trip they were skinny and just... not the same.
Also, what is up with the fountain drinks at MK? Last year I even noticed something tasted off, like well water or something. All the other places at WDW the fountain drinks seem fine. My husband even noticed the drinks at MK this year though.

Yes, the fries at Cassey's last week were terrible in my opinion:


In contrast the fries at Trails End were a lot better:

As for the taste of the fountain drinks, sometimes the water isn't filtered all the way so you get that "Florida water" taste. Same thing happens at water fountains throughout the parks sometimes. Rest assured the water and taste isn't harmful, just not used to what you taste at home. For instance I live in Northern NJ. Water tastes fine at home but go up to the northwest of the state the water tastes like blood due to higher iron levels.

That's probably what I'm tasting. Thanks for shedding some light.

We just got back yesterday and they still had the skinny fries. I also agree with the well water taste in the pop. Whenever we had Sprite I could taste something off about it...like the well water taste. When we had Coke I couldn't taste it so much so I stuck with Coke the whole trip :)

I enjoyed MK fries in June. I don't know if there was something different or I was just hungry! My mom did get a bad Diet Coke at Pinocchio's (sp?), but they were fine at Cosmic Rays. There were no issues with drinks in any other parks.

Judging from the looks, they didn't have the grease hot enough and probably didn't cook them quite long enough... at least that's what it looks like in the top photo. Problem with fries is that the critical part of making them is cooking them and if they size of the fries changes and they don't have the friers and timers set up right you'll get crappy fries. In a perfect world they wouldn't change fries from one time to another because doing it risks throwing off the cooking process... Then again some bean counter probably thought he could save a penny and jumped at it.
