thank heavens. I think that is because the restaurants weren't making any money on the dining plan so the opted out of this years. I mean how can you make money on a meal that normally costs more than what you pay for an entire day? you can't. three of us ate at the italian restaurant in world showcase and the bill was 125.00 before the tip, and that was with two deserts. when you pay 37.00 a day for two meals and a snack how much of that do you think the sit down restaurants get? believe me they were coming up short.
