Refurb..... you meant refurb right? Or has Cindy and her royal table fallen on hard times?
Everybody's a critic.
I'm surprised no Breakfast at Be Our Guest for the downtime.
BOG has enough problems without trying to cram breakfast into there. Its FP only, for now, absolutely destroying any vacation spontaneity - like so much of what WDW has become. Reservations to eat anywhere but generic counter service, FP days or months in advance.
Was just there for 8 days. Had a great time considering. But we're annual pass holders and know how to work the place, have our favorite things to do, etc. We're happy to sit in the shade at AK and drink tea while the masses rush by to Everest. (we'll get on, no worries)
I wouldn't be surprised that true first-time 'guests' are polling very negative on the whole experience that is today's WDW. WDW has become TMPR: Too much planning required.
