    Re: Bring Hollywood Brown Derby to DCA?

    Brown Derby is kinda fancy for a theme park, isn't it? The one in MGM Grand was fairly pricey, if memory serves.

    I don't care much about theme park food. I want it quick, free of pathogens and somewhat affordable. Award Wieners at DCA does fine by me (though more sidewalk cafe seating would be appreciated).

Here dinosaurs join you for dinner. That is the kind of experience that is pure disney-esque.
    I would agree w/ you on Wolfgang Puck and the Vineyard Room. They were only marginally immersive IMHO. They felt more like nice eateries that could have been anywhere.

    However, the ABC Soap Opera Bistro was quite immersive and unique.

    Immersive is definitely what DCA needs. That's why I like the idea of a Brown Derby, or a South Seas Club... completely decked out... themed to the hilt. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive, just completely 100% themed. You need to feel like you've gone back 70 - 80 years the moment you walk in.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    How about a "Coconut Grove" type place....or something like The Ambassador.....that would be cool!

    I think DCA definitely needs more restaurant options...........sorry, but Taste Pilots is not the be all end all, as far as I'm concerned.......

    If they go Asian, maybe they should make it really interesting and do HARRYHAUSEN'S like in Monsters, Inc. It could have some finer dining fare on the upper floor where the lower floor could be the quick food service areas.

    They need attractions but they also need more choices when it comes to places to eat.

    If there aren't enough attractions, guests won't be in the park long enough to need something to eat in the first place.

    When I visit DLR and I happen to be in DCA for lunch the choices are minimal and it is frustrating every time. When it is meal time in DL deciding where to eat is hard sometimes because there is alot of choices. In DCA finding someplace to eat is a chore instead of an enjoyable experience.

    A new DCA restaurant?

    How about "The Road Kill Cafe", just off Route 66 in downtown Cars Land?

    Fixed that for ya.

    Nah, but in all seriousness, I generally don't find DCA to be worth the steep price of admission, so I usually don't go at all. An influx of well-done, properly themed, entertaining attractions would go a long way toward bringing me into that park more frequently. They can add as many restaurants as they want, but no matter how amazing they are, I'm not gonna pay for a park ticket just so I can pay some more for lunch.
