That pepperoni pizza looks so yummy.
If you're not an AP, but on a once-a-year theme park visit, as many WDW visitors are, I'd think you'd be more likely to be okay with indulging in something decadent than a regular visitor would.
At DL, since the typical visitor comes to the park many times a year, they quickly get bored with the same old, same old, and want to see more variety. At the same time, they don't want it to be too decadent, since this isn't the once-a-year special occasion that the typical WDW visit is.
WDW offers an immense amount of variety in its food, but it's spread throughout that immense resort. DL has to pack it within two parks and Downtown Disney. That might help explain the perception, as well.
On a side note, I'm not a fan of eating inside Disneyland. I have found the food overpriced even for park food and the quality subpar. The only exception on the quality was at the Blue Bayou. I agree with you on the Monti Cristos. They are excellent.
Thanks for the Naples review. I've always wondered if it was worth the price. It sure sounds like it.
That's a lot of money you spent for food. Certainly, it is worth it if you enjoyed it. I was wondering why you didn't share as much as you recommend it.
