Portion size has never been an issues at WDW, but I get disappointed
when I look at what makes up that portion. Like most restaurants, it's
a huge pile of cheap, empty carbs with a tiny amount of protein. But it
is usually tasty.

I have always heard that this is a problem. And people complain about
the size and slow speeds of the WDW ECV's. I think the consensus is to
rent form an off-site company that will deliver.

Yeah, I have not experienced this yet. It remain to be seen if I will.
First of all, I'm not going to WDW until masks are no longer required,
and then if I have to pay extra to ride the popular attractions, then no!

They were free.

Unless people stop paying to visit the parks and stay at the resorts,
DIS will see this as hugely successful and probably even tweak it to

January will be four years since I've been. I had planned to take Katie
this fall to celebrate a big milestone for her, but with masks and park
reservations and all that crap, we've decided to wait.
