Excellent. Half the fun of vacations is the dining experiences, and it's nice to give a nod to the underdogs of the entertainment industry - the serving staff.

I was also hoping that Universal would put some care into the fantastical food from the Harry Potter franchise. Some of my best theme park memories are from restaurants, so I hope it works out.

I wish that he had mentioned what upcoming projects (entrees, decor, etc.) Mythos will be undergoing in order to keep it the best around.

And finally, does anyone know if they have updated the sign outside Mythos yet to accommodate its six year reign?

I'll definitely make sure to pick up some pumpkin juice and butterbeer, just to see how it tastes. Interesting interview!

Nice interview, Robert! Thanks for taking the time to speak with the mastermind behind Mythos, and getting a bit of a scoop on HP.

Excellent read. These are very interesting and would love to see more of these types of interviews. Well done Robert!

Mythos is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere, not just in Orlando. I can't visit the Universal Resort without dining here at least once. Thanks for the interview. Really excited to hear about Harry Potter restaurants.

Hey, post or e-mail names of other people you'd like me to interview and I'll get going on them!

I am not really picky and would love to hear from anyone in the industry. But I'll see if I can think of some specific ones.

Thank You. That was a great interview. I so rarely get out of Southern California theme parks since most of my vacation time is spent either at county fairs showing my sheep or visiting family in the "off-season" in the northern states. I so hope that the local parks would step up on their food offerings/choices to include GOOD food that I feel is worth the money I spend there. The 2 places I haven't been disappointed with at DLR are Storyteller Cafe at Grand Californian and Rancho Zovala(? I probably didn't spell that right)in Frontierland. I don't know the names of the Chefs in either place but an interview from them would be interesting.
Off the subject of food Jay Thomas at SFMM seems to be very availiable for interviews and appears to realize that sites like this one can help and/or hinder (depending on the situation) an amusement park, maybe you could pick his brain a little.

LJ,

I talked with Jay Thomas back in May, actually. He was a pleasure to speak with.

And the restaurant in Frontierland is Rancho del Zocalo. Please click over, everyone, and give it a rating and review, if you've eaten there.

Thanks for the heads up on your interview with Jay Thomas (just read it), I spent most of May away from the computer and the internet so I just missed it. BTW have you had a chance to get back to Magic Mountain?
From Robert Niles on July 9, 2008 at 1:53 PM
Not yet. Soon, though.

It's great when your articles are read here and talked about so lively on competing sites. Robert, the Disney-philes at a certain magic site are up in arms about HP Island and the lack or appearance of new competition from Disney.
