    Since Universal has been putting their own restaurants in at CitiWalk, we've changed our dinner habits. We used to get a lot of quick service meals in the parks. But the prices of the new table service restaurants are almost the same as the in park QS locations, and, of course, the food and selection are better at CitiWalk. Being adjacent to the park entrances, CitiWalk is, for all intents and purposes, part of the parks. It's become a no brainer to take the very short walk and eat at a good CitiWalk restaurant. And a BIG PLUS, no reservations.......But at WDW, due to the ridiculous reservation system, we rarely ever eat at a table service restaurant. It's QS for us at WDW, 95% of the time

    Pretty decent food at good prices. We like Bubba Gumps.

    Just what we need on these 90 degree days is a fire pit :lol: Looks good, but such an odd thing to add to a restaurant in Orlando.

    That was my response when Universal starting putting fire pits next to their new hotel's pools. But the funny thing about it, we actually try to stop by and enjoy the ambiance of the fire pit in the evening, but the seating is 'always' completely filled, and we've never been able to get a chair. Wildly popular it seems. Who would have thought, it is hot humid Florida after all. :doh:

    S’mores at the resorts are definitely something I like.

    I enjoy the ambiance too, oddly though, people start to leave when I start playing the Illuminations beginning narration

    Real talk though, people may sit here for a while after they eat...I know I tend to get cold after sitting in a restaurant...the fire may be welcomed
