    I feel that adding Dunkin Donuts is rather random. Does this mean that Dunkin' Donuts will use Hershey chocolate?

    Re: Hersheypark adds Dunkin' Donuts restaurants

    I really dislike having chain restaurants in theme parks.

    Personally, I look forward to experiencing things I can't find elsewhere within a theme park -- and that includes food. I refuse to go to a Subway, McDonald's or any place like that in a theme park.

    And with this Dunkin' Donuts nonsense, who would prefer donuts over the sweet Hershey goodies inside of Chocolate World which is also sitting right outside the gates? Not this guy.

    In true both the resteraunt and the kiosk are extremely limited. The "resteraunt" is nothing but a glorified kiosk itself with a few seats around it. The menue is not that big at all. The report makes it sound like it is better than it is. To anyone who has ever been to Hersheypark the new Dunkin Donuts is in the same spot that the old coffee house was right as you are coming to the park entrance. It's the the exact same building all they really did is add some outside seats outside. The kiosk at the new Boardwalk section serves mainly drinks with some donut holes and muffins.
