    Re: Tongaroa Terrace to open on May 25th.

    It's true that Walt didn't want alcohol in his park. It's also true, according to Bob Thomas's biography, that Walt enjoyed a scotch every afternoon. This does not make him hypocritical; I think it's because children would be in his park, but not at any of the bars at the Disneyland Hotel (and, yes, I know Walt didn't own the Hotel, but I don't think the Hotel would have had any bars if Walt didn't want them there). He had a different "audience" in these two places.

    Texan by birth, Californian by choice.

    There should be a sticky thread called "This Day in Disney History." The company has a long history and this would be a good way to acknowledge it. Walt was born 112 years ago; that's quite a chunk of American history and culture.

    Well, wisdom nowadays says that it's better to have a limited menu with truly fresh ingredients and delicious dishes than a huge menu that is poorly cooked. A chef cooking from a set menu puts out food much that is much better quality that the same chef cooking from a large and varied menu. I learned this watching Kitchen Nightmares on the BBC, perfect a few dishes instead of winging tons of dishes and spreading yourself too thin in the kitchen!

    Plus there is so much variety within the resort; you can get anything you want inside, just at various locations because each location has a limited menu and a specialty.

    Agreed. Give me a handful of very well done items. I like what they have teased about the menu options. Will be anxious to check it out when I am down for the D23 Expo!

    I wonder with Tangaroa Terrace serving breakfast they'll stop serving breakfast at Steakhouse 55?

    not likely, as this will be a casual option and steakhouse 55 is pretty nice
