Magic Kingdom has the second best food options of any park I've ever been to, second to Epcot. Be Our Guest beats every Six Flags and Cedar Fair park ,combined, by itself.

As much as I am mostly bored by their rides and parades at this point, I would go there just to eat.
Remember: Get out there and RIDE!

Are you kidding??? Magic Kingdom used to get so much grief because quick-serve was pretty much ALL they had for the longest time...

- Casey's Corner
- Columbia Harbor House
- Cosmic Ray's
- Gaston's Tavern
- Pecos Bill
- Village Haus
- Sleepy Hollow
- Friar's Nook
- Lunching Pad
- Tortuga Tavern

And that doesn't even include many smaller kiosks or even Be Our Guest, which is also a quick-serve during the day, but harder to get into. I mean, with all that, Really??? You couldn't find quick-service food options in the park!?!??!


What I've found is that people that may be unfamiliar with Disney's park structure and are more familiar with the Six Flags/Cedar Fair methodology can be intimidated, for lack of a better word, by Disney's indoor quick service counters.

If someone finds the process of opening a door and entering a building too formal a step to procure chicken fingers, then all hope for them is lost. Disney ain't the problem.

Read somewhere that Big Thunder Mountain is down from April to July this year. Is this true? Gutted if it is.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I have seen this info on several different fan sites, but when we called to book our upcoming trip in July I asked about it and they said no refurbishment is planned.

Not sure what to believe, as sometimes the people on the other end of the phone are not necessarily the most informed.

All New “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” Show Brings Joyful Celebration to Walt Disney World Resort
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Joining the lineup of unparalleled Walt Disney World Resort entertainment, “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” will immerse guests in a royal musical celebration set to debut this summer on the Cinderella Castle stage at Magic Kingdom Park.

Mickey Mouse and his pals unite in a tale of friendship featuring songs and characters from Disney’s contemporary classics “Princess and the Frog,” “Tangled” and “Frozen.”

From the land of the bewitching bayous, Goofy has invited Princess Tiana, Naveen and Louis to add a little spice of New Orleans jazz to the party. Donald Duck brings some new friends he met in the land of the enchanted woods, where Daisy Duck introduces us to her special guests, Rapunzel and Flynn. Finally, Mickey Mouse shares a surprise with Minnie Mouse, as he has traveled to the land of the mystic mountains to invite Olaf, Princess Anna, and Queen Elsa, who swirls a blast of her icy magic.

The celebration culminates in a grand dance, marked by a magical fireworks finale. “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” will be presented multiple times daily.

Just read on another site (don't know whether appropriate to name) about Big Thunder closing April-July. Seems a very strange time to do a rehab. Not sure my 4 year old would have braved it and been on the Paris one more recently so not the end of the world I suppose. Although finding out Toy Story Mania closing in same article was more annoying.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Special mention to the Roy O. Disney (#4) locomotive on the Walt Disney World Railroad, which turns 100 years old this month. That effectively makes it the oldest ride in Walt Disney World (the only other ride close to that is the carousel, which was made in 1917).

I have to say, it's about time Tiana and Naveen get in a show. The Princess and the Frog is criminally under-rated. I hope they do a villain segment like in Dream Along with Mickey but include Facilier instead of Maleficent.

Keep it open for the spring break crowds, kill it for a big rehab for the end of the school year, open it back up in time for the majority of summer crowds. Seems smart to me.
