    It seems to be closed on every visit to MK. I was wondering if anyone knew if this would be open on June 2nd?

    Who the %$#@# knows! This upsets me so much, because I think it is a great CS place to get something different other than burgers and pizza, and chicken strips. We ate there once in July and I think then maybe only on certain days of the week it was open? If we could protest I would, because we really liked the taco salad and beans and rice. pirate: You can't know for sure on this place. It does not run on a set schedule!

    :rotfl2: I thought it was just me! Every trip I plan to eat here and everytime I go it is closed! I guess it's just used during the absolute busiest times? Maybe I'll get to try it during free dining.

    Same frustrations here as well. This is mine & my DH's favorite CS to eat at and it's never open. It's absolutely ridiculous. If they're never going to open it (even at the busiest times) maybe they should do something with it to stop teasing us.

    They were testing it out as a buffet (Sept-Oct '05) We didnt try it out, but it was basically everything at a barbeque.

    I too miss the old El Pirata y el Perico, I remember my sister and I were so excited to get there and eat, and it was closed, nothing else tasted good that day, I had my heart set on the food. :sad2:

    I have been to the MK at all times of the year, so many times I can't count and I have NEVER seen this place open! I had been beginning to wonder if it ever had been open! :teeth:

    last time we were there (back in december-january) we asked a CM since it was closed the day we had planned on eating there while the day before it was opened. it turns out that it's only open during the crowded weeks such as the holidays and the summer. no clue as to why though.::MinnieMo

    The only time I have every seen this restaurant open was in the last week of April 2004.
    It was open two days in a row, and I ate there the second day.
    This was the least crowded CS facility at MK that day. I don't think many people thought that it was open.

    I've been there the last 4 summers (and many more before those) and we have always been able to eat there. The hours have been limited the past few years, but we have always been able to eat lunch there at least once a trip during the summer. I think the place was only open 11-4 last summer. The food there has definitely declined since the old days.
