    Yeah, I think Ron Jon will be a really good fit overall.

    Maybe it’s just me, but Jose Andres has become quite famous in the past year. I think this restaurant is going to be crazy busy. Maybe even the busiest restaurant in Disney Springs.

    Eh, I think it will be really good, but the prices on the released menu are INSANE in some cases. $17-18 for a cocktail in some instances. Here's the menu: Full Menu for Jaleo at Disney Springs Has Been Released - WDW News Today

    Yeah, those cocktail prices are too much. I would not get a second one if I even make it here to have a first one.

    Going to be interesting seeing how service goes. The place was supposed to open before Christmas but has seen significant kitchen issues that caused delays.

    I might give it a try tomorrow. Glad to hear it's getting good reviews. With only a few exceptions (the Italian place near The Edison and of course Planet Hollywood), almost all of these restaurants seem to be of really high quality. Even some of the less popular ones (STK is a good example) are still a good meal.

    Has the third garage opened yet? I know it was supposed to be ready last month, but haven't found anything on it.

    This is getting out of control. From the picture you can see this is at Jaleo and the final total is $5.32 with tax. For a 20oz COKE. I've bought beers cheaper than this at the House of Blues next door in the not too distant past.


    Elsewhere...




    I swear this garage is never opening

    Anyone else feel like there are just too many restaurants and not enough shopping in Disney Springs? They were going for upscale shopping venue and forgot to add retailers...

    There’s plenty of retail, just a ton of dining, too. Problem is most of it is all the same stuff. Give me an electronics store, apple, comic book shop - ANYTHING.

    Just too many clothing stores and honestly Uniqlo and Zara are the only ones I care for.

    Absolutely! Really surprised Apple didn't come in. The stores at Millennia and Florida Mall are always packed, so adding a third wouldn't have hurt them.

    The thing is Apple doesn’t need Disney and at this point there’s no more unused plots of lands or building locations. Apple likes custom locations as well... the Coke store actually looks like it should’ve been an Apple store.

    Having sat in an empty Puck's Sunday afternoon, and seeing the sudden ride of happy hours around Springs--yes.
