    We will be at Old Town for an evening, can anyone recommend a place to eat for two adults.
    Are there any good shops there?

    We're going for the car parade but will be there from about 4pm.

    Have you been there before?

    I ask because it is a really iffy place after dark. We've gotten takeout from Flippers pizza. They were pretty good.

    The cars are awesome. The first time I went, I took Alysia and Jordan. It was packed with bikers and lots and lots of drunk people. It was no place for us to be. The next time we went, we made sure to take DH. I just safer with him there and I am not the kind to get scared easily.

    Issy, I honestly can't recommend eating there. :( I'd say go to Celebration for a meal and then there? Or go to Celebration after there? :unsure:

    The shops are numerous, but they are very touristy. Nothing you haven't seen before and nothing you are going to "have" to have.

    Not putting the place down, mind but the cars are the draw there. :yes:

    Luv, nope. I'd not stay there. We did years and years ago (at a suites place nearby) and I'd never do it again.

    Thank you Tink! I guess that explains why the rooms are so cheap...

    Yep. We fell for it too. $99 a WEEK. (Shows you how long ago). I think it was right across the road from Old Town, if I remember correctly.

    Very old suites, very shabby. Good that we didn't spend much time in it!
