    Please tell me that there will be an antique Mario arcade machine somewhere. That would be awesome

    Without spilling all the beans when you say "a lot more to do", do you mean like activities/meet and greets/shows/dining and interactive elements throughout the land? or are we thinking more than 3 rides?

    Meet and greets, shows, dining, shopping, interactive elements, play areas, the 3 rides, and more. (But not more rides.)

    An optional walkthrough would be nice....Maybe something like Knockturn Alley....I think of the secret levels with Boo in Super Mario 64

    As long as they have that terrifying piano :lol:

    Some of the play areas might be like that, exploratory. And hopefully an area or two will be nice and creepy.

    Generally nearly all the complaints at VB were inability to handle the crowds, lines way too long, couldn't get in if you didn't arrive before opening, etc. I really don't remember too many complaints about the unfinished minor features people didn't even know were there, or the theming (other then many not liking a certain side of the Volcano, but that was a design decision, not something unfinished)

    Will the play areas all be in one area, or spread throughout? It might get messy if they're all in one area.

    I think the main one is all one area, but spread out over a large space. And hopefully Donkey Kong gets another (more traditional) play area soon after the land opens.

    Food wise,

    They will probably do the japanese takes on American food. Like Asian style pizza with different and unique toppings like Steak, Shrimp and potatoes.

    Or if they decide to go the full japanese route, I can see Americanized bento boxes, traditional ramen, teriyaki.

    You may be more right than you know.
    I think, somehow, the main restaurant will try to balance both classic (Americanized) Italian dishes like pizza and pasta - along with fun Japanese inspired dishes like bento boxes with little rice shapes that look like characters or Toadstools. No reason they can't do both. (Especially if they plan to share the same menus in Japan and the US.)
