    I know I’m going to be accused of trolling but……….avoid the hot dog with the sweet chili sauce and Asian slaw. I tried it over the weekend and it was quite revolting.

    Was just at MK this morning 3/6/17 and the tarp for the train station has been removed. Train was in the station and headed to frontierland.

      How dare you contradict the great Crab Cakeless! If he says Sonny goes underground, than he goes underground! Videos of him raising are simply fake news perpetuated by the liberal Hollywood elite mascarding as home movies.

    Yeah for Mickey’s Star Traders. More and more of Mickey and Minnie merchandise!!!
    And why not do away w smoking all together????

    • Alex

      I think they keep them just to try to be accommodating with smoking since I feel if they did not have them they could possibly have problems with smoking around the park. Also on a trip a few months ago I over heard a group of smokers complaining about the lack of smoking areas so I think getting rid of them would just cause complaints
