Can always learn something here on the Dis no matter how often we go thanks for telling me specifically where Tink/Pixie Hollow is I ALWAYS miss it ( & then remember I missed it when we get home )

Not sure I'd raise my arms in SM or RnRC but loved your post OP

Had to comment on this though:



Don't know how it works at WDW, but I worked at a buffet as a teen as well as a full-service restaurant. I worked equally hard at both because at the buffet, we bussed all our own tables and omg do people make a mess when they eat at a buffet. I also did everything else full-service including keeping drinks topped off, bringing anything extra needed, and handling checks/money.. really the only thing I did differently was NOT bring a plate of food (and that was offset but not having a busser!). Not to mention at the full-service place I worked at, we often had food runners so I didn't bring the food anyway. Most importantly, I still also made only $2.13/hr at the buffet and was dependent on my tips!

I hear people complain about tipping at buffets so often and I just hadta throw that out there!
Thank you so much for posting this! It definitely gives me a better appreciation for buffet waitstaff. I never really realized how much work was involved.

We are aware of this because of great posters like the OP. Also, they did mention Universal, never said Harry Potter was in WDW!

Believe it or not, many new people come on these boards every day. It's a great planning resource, especially for first timers. So posts like these are crucial for those people. Also, I'm pretty sure they knew they were at Universal. Many people here appreciate the Universal tips. I have been to Universal before but am not nearly familiar with it as WDW.
