  1. Essie says

    I love these What’s New Reports! I also love everything in them, the food, merchandise, and the park and resort updates. Thanks for being some Disney into my home!

  2. Julie Gray says

    Noooooo! I can’t believe that Sci-Fi eliminated their awesome Reuben sandwich from the menu!! That was my all time favorite Reuben sandwich anywhere I’ve ever been! We have reservations on our big vacation this
    Month and I was sooooo looking forward to that sandwich. Booo!

  3. Shelly says

    We just got back from Pop a couple weeks ago and I missed a lot of this but I did get to try that vegetable soup (alongside a very hearty and delicious quiche). It was so good! Reminded me very much of the vegetable soup my grandmother makes.

  4. Anthony says

    I love these reports as well and I’m slowly working my way through the over 500 pages of blog archives. I love this site, but it makes me hungry! Still, it helps me stay sane until my next Disney trip.

  5. Susan says

    Disney has Seagrams!?!? That’s one of the things I miss living overseas and last time I was home, I looked EVERYWHERE for Seagrams and couldn’t find it! Is this something that I will be able to find throughout the park, or only at the one resort? And do they have more flavors of it? Thank you for being my eyes and ears at Disney for great treats!

  6. DFB Sarah says

    Bummer, Julie! Keep an eye on the menu just in case it makes its way back. It happens sometimes!

  7. Sara says

    I hope they dump the BBQ platter and bring back just the ribs when I’m there in September. I don’t want all of that food. I also don’t want to pay $5 more than I would have last year. I didn’t get to go to Sci-Fi on my September trip last year because Irma decided to take a Jungle Cruise.
