    Can't wait! Although to be totally honest, the souvenir cone sippers don't seem worth getting...

    Not sure where the "fruit foam" idea came from, but it's an interesting concept... let's just say. I thought to myself, "So this is how Mater drinks his iced tea, huh?".

    Didn't take any pictures of anything, of course, as was requested.
    It's actually "Cars Land", not "Carsland".

    The only thing I ate was the Chicken Verde Cone. But it was freakin' delicious. But definitely snack sized. The bread cone/bowl it's in was definitely reminescent of a bagel dog batter. I only ate half the cone. I've never been a big fan of bagel dogs. But the chicken verde...I'd DEFINITELY eat that again.

    All that we tried from the Cozy Cones were the Popcone which were just ok and the Pomegranite Taste-in drink. It is offered with vodka, but don't go for it. You could get a better buzz off of Robitussin.
















    To me what really works here is how perfectly they captured the Route 66, novelty hotel feel. Everything from the outlandish cones to the adorable lawn ornaments and cone fountain. Then there is Sally's office. There are all sorts of little surprises there.

    I had the chili "cone" queso tonight, but wasn't a huge fan. The most annoying part was that there were probably about 20 people in front of me and I waited an hour. Yeah, I waited longer for some chili than to ride RSR! Plus they ran out of straws for the large cone cup.

    The rest of my group really enjoyed Flo's though, especially the apple-cheddar pie!

    Okay so I love the little buzz that lifts off the cone... what a great Toy Story reference... also I really wish they sold those alarm clocks shaped like a cone with the car popping out of the garage from the movie... that would be a great merch item!

    Ate at Flo's tonight....GREAT food! Definitely a favorite in the resort now. The music is wonderful and the inside is decorated beautifully. So 50's/60's diner, I loved it! The food was great and just so...comforting lol really great experience I would highly recommend.

    Didn't get to try any of the Cozy Cones but I LOVED the theming in the area. Definitely had that Route 66 kitsch.

    Ate at Flo's and loved it! Had the turkey dinner which had a roll and came with two sides. I chose pasta salad and a roasted corn medley, which was roasted corn, red bell peppers, onions, and was nicely seasoned. Very different from anything I've had at the resort, filling, and fairly priced. The desserts were great, especially the apple-cheddar pie, which is a pie crust lining a ramekin, with a slice of cheese pushed in on top of the crust, then filled with apple pie filling. Most unique, and very home-made tasting. Also sampled a friend's chocolate mud cake, which was very good, but a bit on the small side.

    We would have had a snack at the Cozy Cone Motel, but the lines were huge for most of the time we were there.

    I tried the sweet and spicy popcorn without knowing what to expect and it was rather tasty, I certainly would get that again.

    One thing I truly enjoyed was when the lights turn on in the Radiator Springs area. My sister and I were sitting outside of Flo's enjoying our popcorn when all of a sudden the song "Life Could Be A Dream" came on at the moment all the lights were going on. It almost seemed magical and was a great moment for me.

    When do the food service locations close? Seems like at least one should be open late since this will likely be a very busy part of the park at night.

    We ate at Flo's yesterday. My daughter had the Tater Tot dish which was vegetarian and she loved it. She had it with the pasta salad and she said that was good too. She got the special tea ($3.50!) and said it was too sweet, but she usually doesn't sweeten her tea. She didn't finish it. I had the BBQ pork with corn and mashed potatoes and it was delicious. We split the apple/cheddar pie and it was really good. Later on there no line at all for the pretzel cone and we had those and the frozen apple drink. We both liked the drink, we went back for another one since we didn't want to split it after tasting it.

    By the way, no pass discount at the cones.
