  • “Spring’s Street Taco’s”? Really, Disney? Maybe the apostrophe in Spring’s (though I doubt it). Get a friggin proofreader.

          • Yeah my preference for legible and correctly spelled articles is just trolling. I must be an emotionally stunted commenter to want the things I read to be intelligible.

            Thanks for the input Tom.

          • Wouldn’t this argument be more valid if Tom had called out the typo? In this case, a reader did, and he replied he saw it. The hostility is kind of confusing. He’s not charging anyone to read the site… if you don’t like it or think there are too many Ray Charles level typos, feel free to move on.

          • There’s no argument, I pointed out a hypocrisy. Also, no hostility. Anything else going on with you that you feel the need to project on to someone else?

    • I have to agree with Peter. These are not true food trucks, but merely food kiosks disguises as food trucks. They produce nothing but bland, boring, and over priced food offerings. Disney would only allow these type of trucks on property if each owner/operator forfeited a hefty cut of their profits in order to fill the Disney coffers.

  • Tom’s articles have more typos than a text message from Ray Charles.

    Take a minute and proof-read before posting.

    • *Looks over Mumbleshanks’s post desperately trying to find a typo. After none, thinks of some other “important” thing he was doing at the time that would warrant typos.*

      *Hits refresh 7 times and goes back to staring at his page counts.*

  • Do you guys know when most of the construction will be completed in Disney Springs? My family and I are going the end of September.

  • With all the new clothing designs and dresses coming out (wish I could own them all), I’m hoping the sizes don’t stop at size 12/14. I personally am a size 3X/24 (unfortunately due to medication). So on our next trip to WDW will I be able to purchase some of these new articles of clothing? Fingers crossed the answer will be of the positive persuation …..😆 Thank You.

  • Does anyone have an idea how much those plastic Disney castle plates cost? And if they are in multiple stores? We get to go in June (YAY!!! Its been over 2 years!!) and I really, really want some!!
