    I found out the hard way today that the taco truck is only open on weekends. :( Lame. I really wanted some tacos.

    Funny this should be mentioned here. On last Wednesday I was the only one eating in there as a member of UC (indicated by his jacket) was accompanied by a manager and seemingly discussed a repurposing/retheme of the room. I don't know how drastic (I blankly looked at them eating my burger to let them silently know, "Hi I'm a guest sitting here mayyyybe you shouldn't be discussing this" but they just ignored me) but it seemed to involve adding a service bar and shuffling around the seating and booths.


    Then they just left when a couple new people entered. It was very strange.

    Multiple new characters have been added throughout the area, with one including the dastardly Snake as he brakes out of the Springfield Police Station..

    I wonder if they'll finally give the Aztec marquee an rotating actual joke like it was originally intended instead of cheaping out.


    Here's a tweet by Parks and Cons showing the new signage:

    For all of you beer lovers, Dufftoberfest has made its way to our Springfield! Just had it today at Krusty Burger. It's quite delicious.

    But ours is much more compact. Its nice to have something different. But I like the Krusty Burger better in Orlando. Also, Our Waffle sandwich is too messy! I also like Moe's lighting in Orlando...Hollywood made it too dark!

    Just a quick observation from yesterday's trip: I ate dinner at Cletus Chicken Shack and ordered one of my favorites: the peep fried chicken platter. I noticed the price had gone up to $15.99. When the Springfield eateries first opened, this platter was $13.99--which I thought wasn't too bad, considering the decent portion size and having an AP discount.

    Raising food prices is normal practice and not surprising...just like ticket prices and parking go up. However, at $15.99, I probably won't be ordering this platter as much any more, as I think it's a poor value now. I didn't think to take note of the other menu items, but assume most of them have increased as well. Has anyone else noticed food price increases? And would it affect what you order or do you just chalk it up to dining in a theme park?

    I have noticed the price increases at restaurants in the parks. But I have also seen comprable price increases at restaurants well outside of parks.

    I have eaten at Cowfish at CityWalk and also in Atlanta. I was surprised to see that the prices were the same.

    $0.50 increase per year isn't that bad, only slightly higher than the rate of inflation.

    Also factor in operational cost have also gone up, I think its very modest increase.

    I believe Lard Lad Donuts are now $6.99. Wasn't it $5.99 not too long ago?
