How is the food court in general? When we stayed there in '11, we liked pretty much everything. Would love to know what you've had and what you think about it (besides the breakfast pizza, of course).

That, and where are you from in Ohio, fellow Buckeye?

We're here right now and I can answer the pool question. My kids went swimming this afternoon for about an hour. They said the water was warm but the air was cool. It was probably mid to high seventies, but a strong wind. My kids are the ones you have to drag out of the pool, but the cooler air just got to be too much for them.

I am from Columbus.

We have liked the food court overall.
Chicken penne alfredo----loved it
Mom's night out---loved it
Turkey Ciabatta Sandwich---Hubby said it was okay.
I had nuggets and he had a burger today. Both were good. The fries were great.
Breakfast pizza---not a fan
Bounty platter---hubby liked the potatoes and meat, but the eggs overcooked.
Breakfast burrito---hubby liked this better than the bounty platter
Pancakes with fruit----loved it
King cupcake----a little too odd for me
Tye dyed cheesecake----enjoying as I type this.

I didnt realize we had eaten at the food court so often.

thanks for the food court info...we find that we eat at the food court pretty often, especially for dinner after spending all day at the park (we do rope drop most days). Glad to hear that this one is good!

We were there in Sept and I was very impressed with the food selection at Pop.

I saw an update menu recently that did not include the Philly Cheeseteak?
I am hoping this is just a mistake.

For anyone there - is this true that it's gone from the grill menu?

Otherwise I could check it out Saturday when I arrive!

Thanks!,
John

I like the idea of being close to the action
I had to buy another piece of luggage today and shoes and a floppy hat

For transporation .... the 60s, 70s, the back of bldg 9 (that is close to busing). If you have a preference of one area over another, I would add that as a second request.
