    Its rumored that WDW is planning a pirate themed restuarant in the Adventureland section of the Magic Kingdom. Rumors are that the restuarant will be named "Tortuga" and will be located at the site of the Veranda Resturant near the Swiss Family Treehouse.

    Well, it's about time they're putting something in there. It has been vacant for years and only used during special events.

    I don't want to spoil the surprise but the menu has already leaked out...sounds pretty unique.

    Pizza Combo Meals - Individual pizza with tossed salad: Vegetable, Cheese or Pepperoni

    Individual Pizza: Vegetable, Cheese or Pepperoni

    Fried Chicken Strips - served with fries or carrots

    Smoked Emu Legs

    Beef Hot Dog - served with your choice of French fries or carrots


    Of course Mates with Eye Patchs and Wenchs are doing the selling and every thing listed will have an ARRRGGGHHHH in front or on the end of it. Look at me I can work for Disney too...and I didn't even need Powerpoint or to fire a divison of the company to come up with this great idea.

    While this menu sounds sooooooooo MK, what do pirates eat? It would be as limited as the pirate alphabet (ARRR and AYE). The only thing I could think of in POTC is 6 bottles of rum and the Red Head serving it.

    Looks like at least one person got what I was going for...Thanks DiRTyBuNNy

    Planning stages....bwhahahahahahahahahah. The only plan they are working on is how many chicken fingers you will get for 8 bucks (2 or 3) and when they can raise the price of a coke to 3 bucks. I can't wait to see how they work the gift shop into place. pirate: pirate: pirate:

    Do the Wenches slap you when they give you your food?

    Are their smelly drunk people in the corner? What about fights? Or drunken fights? And pigs, don't forget the pigs.

    No shirt, no shoes - no problems.

    They are pirates, after all. (Or Kenny Chesney.)

    The real question is will it be included on the dining plan.

    Anyone remember the 'Sound Stage Restaurant' when the Disney/MGM Studios first opened? It's where the "Playhouse Disney Brainwashes Your Childern" show is now.

    The original restaurant was designed to be a driect tie-in with big, franchise Disney movies. While the service counters and the overhead bar were fixed, all the rest of the place was left bear so the place could easily be redecorated to match the newest flick. When it opened, the restaurant used the giant hotel set from Big Business - it made it seem like you were at the film's wrap party.

    Zone forward in time and now Disney is spending big bucks to remake something they already had, then trashed in yet another short sighted management greed-grab for a quick buck.

    1) Unfortunately, with the DDP reimbursement, unique food is tough.
    2) There just isn't enough money to afford such.
    3) I wonder if this counter service eatery will be any different.

    Let's see:
    . . . near-beer-grog (no booze inside of MK)
    . . . peg-leg-turkey-thighs
    . . . hooked french fries
    . . . sail-cloth-tortilla chips
    . . . walk-the-planksteak
    . . . pirate-medallion-coin hamburg patties (White Castle size)

    So is everyone thinking counter-service? Or is this going to be a character breakfast geared toward boys? :scratchin

    Somewhat off topic - but I worked at this restaurant on the College Program in 1993. At the time it was Alladin-themed. Counter-service during for lunch and dinner, and we had an Alladin character breakfast. There also was a good bar ("Catwalk") above the restaurant.
