    I've seen a couple of reports/photostreams here and there - the one that has stuck with me most is the $30 lobster roll. Now, I am FAR from a connoisseur of lobstahhhhh, but the amount of mayo included in said $30 lobster roll did NOT make me want to rush out and throw my wallet open -

    And there is no chance in HELL I'm getting in one of those cute little aquacars, NOPE, NU-UHHH, NO WAY. But I'd be tickled to watch one go across the water with someone else in them :D

    Reserving judgement, but pretty skeptical...

    There is not enough FANTASY in all of Disney World to bring make that happen.

    Shame, too, because the cars really *are* adorable.

    Ok, wait, I'll make you a deal...you go to 50's Prime Time Cafe with me, and I'll go aquacar driving with you ;)

    We are trying to decide whether to try this as our OOP restaurant this time. We love the look of it, and the food, though yes it is indeed pricey. One of the main things for us is that it has outdoor tables, and we can usually forgive many things for that, as for some reason the fact that tourists may want to eat outside in the beautiful weather on their holiday seems to have mostly passed Disney by. They aren't taking reservations for when we are there though, just walk-ups only, so that may stop us trying it, but maybe we will email the manager and ask if we can book anyway.

    Oh, and for the record, Becca you are a total wuss :rotfl: I would LOVE to try one of those cars! Just they are a tad pricey too.

    One of those amphicars was bought from Gas Monkey Garage. I saw it on an episode of Fast n' Loud - the buyer was buying vehicles for a forthcoming attraction in Orlando.

    I haven't Keith, as I had heard from someone who had been at the preview that Opentable bookings were only for after the 15th. Didn't check though :)

    Damn straight I am, and I'll be right here on dry land admitting it!!! LOL

    Seriously, though if we let Keith drive, I'll ride shotgun, then you and Mr. Deb can cuddle up in the backseat...that'll be the price split three ways...that's almost affordable!
