Licensed food trucks have to follow the same safety standards as restaurants (hand washing, proper food handling, temps, etc..) especially those run by Disney. Since they are "permanent" I assume Disney will be installing hook ups for these mobile kitchens. That being said, I'm careful about which ones I patronize in NYC. Those that are not licensed or have had several health infractions are hard to identify by just walking up to one.

You're really missing out, then. The food trucks in our city are serving gourmet quality food and have to adhere to the same regulations and inspections that a restaurant has to. These aren't hot dog stands or lunch trucks. I frequent the various food truck nights in my city.

I certainly agree with your sentiment, the food trucks here in Louisville are the same way and in reality the inspections or even stricter than that for B&M restaurants. I'm sure that Disney will also be very strict about sanitary conditions for their food trucks however I'm betting that like all the other restaurants in Disney these days the menu itself will be lackluster.

Call my slow but why food trucks? While there is a huge increase in the vogue factor of food trucks there are still a lot of people who think of them as the old roach coach.

Of course the reality is that these will be anything but that but reality is trumped by perception when it comes to sales.

It would seem to me that a fixed location would be much better.

Not my cup of tea at least for now. With two little kids I could not figure standing in line for 2-3 different trucks to get food to make everyone happy. Limited menu means we'll skip this. Tried it once at home and didn't work for us. Everyone wanted something different so DH stood in 1 line and me the other . Got kids food. Went to get kids started on eating and I sat with them . DH went to get his food then when he sat down I went. By the time I sat down everyone was done and the kids wanted to run around so I hardly ate. We'll stick to TS restaurants

Food trucks are huge here in NJ ...especially at Rutgers University. they are an icon. Food is fantastic
If the food at Disney food trucks are half as good as the ones here I am all in with my next trip

If I'm going to get a gourmet meal I want t eat it in a gourmet place, not outside.

I have no objections to food trucks, just don't think it's something to get real excited about. Just my opinion. Different stroke for different folks.

I like the whole idea. It's going right along with the times.

The menu looks ok, but I'd like to see one or two 'special' items that change every so often - just to keep it fresh.
