Of course, this also hits a sore spot because as also mentioned in the article, Disney is going to take the opportunity to fill the area with more non-Disney dining vendors, meaning that the Disney Dining Experience (20% discount) won’t be accepted. This is a loophole that needs to be corrected because the number of restaurants that don’t accept it because they’re outside vendors seems to be growing quite rapidly. As far as I’m concerned, if they can take the dining plan, which I’m almost certain all do because it’s an easy $$$ source for Disney because people will line up 6 months in advance to drop the cash, then they should honor the discounts too.
Now I’m even madder having made that connection. 🙁
