AOA had the wierd fish bread too...I wonder if all resorts have the fish bread to make some sort of nutritional goal?? but wheat buns wouldn't be any worse than the fish bread I'd think. not sure. I did see a family get the sloppy joe meal for their kids and it came on a regular bun. maybe they asked for a regular bun. don't know. they were in the cashier line.

I am not a fan of disney's homemade chips in the first place. too greasy and burnt tasting all the time. but to use those as the base of nachos? wierd and gross...

I have not calculated it yet. It is on my list of things to do though and I'll report back when I do!

I actually think the walk across the bridge to my room at POP was closer than the walk to the AOA food court to the LM rooms... I could be wrong, but it seemed that way!
You're basically right! The distance is pretty much equal!

I used a measurement feature on Google maps and the distance between the center of the LM section and Animation Hall, and the distance between the center of the 60's buildings and Animation Hall, is actually about the same. They are both around .23 to .24 of a mile.

We are planning to bring some bagels for breakfasts. We will be on the regular dining plan and would like to use our counter meals in the park.

I was hoping someone here would know if they sell cream cheese in the food court or convenience area of the shop? Or, if we're really lucky, do they have some single serve packs in the condiment station?

Yes, there are little condiment-sized packs of cream cheese and peanut butter available for sale in the cooler case area. Neither are provided for free in the condiment stations.

We bring bagels too and we like pb&j on them, so we pack a jar of peanut butter (travels well) and there are jam/jelly packs you can get in the condiment stations.

I think the "fish bread" must be Pepperidge Farm Goldfish brand bread? I think it's intended for kids.

I am kind of glad we did not even really use the food court last trip. So I know I can survive without it. We did eat a meal at our resort (AOA) food court on departure day and it was our worst CS meal of the trip. I only use the food court for our refillable mugs and to grab a smoothie or whatnot!! We like to eat at the parks

I am glad to hear that most stays were good despite the bad food court. How has busing been??

I think Smitch means she likes real bacon and sausage from a pig. Not the alternatives, turkey bacon and chicken sausage you know chickens and turkeys are birds LOL!
I to prefer my bacon and sausage to come from pigs!!!

Oh!! I forgot about turkey bacon! Eeww...I wouldn't like that either. Nothing against those of you that do, just not for me either. I like my piggy bacon! Never heard of chicken sausage! That one is new to me!!
