    Just instruct Keith to breathe heavily, and tell them he's Darth Vadar's long lost brother, Darth Bagger.

    I can't get over the prices... My kids are considered adults so it would cost me 200 dollars for breakfast. That is insane .

    Absolutely agree Butterhead. Everyone has their own choices to make, but this is one of those times when even if I could do it, I'm not sure I would. The thought of paying that much for breakfast, without being a fundraiser for a worthy cause (and although I find Disney very worthy, that's not quite the type of cause I have in mind) I'm afraid we just couldn't justify that sort of use of our money. :unsure: One of those times were Disney's excess makes me uncomfortable.

    I think in some ways, you have to remove the "food" from the equation, and just focus on the "unique" experience. Yes, $50/pp is ridiculously expensive for breakfast (INSANELY so). But, look at it this way - is $50/pp for a "once-in-a-lifetime" experience too expensive? Maybe not, especially if Star Wars is your thing. I'll admit to spending 2-3 times more than that for a Broadway show - because that's my thing. It all comes down to the experience, and how much it means to you personally. For some, spending $50/pp to see a mash-up of their two favorite things (say, Star Wars and Disney) would be a no-brainer.

    Just my .02 cents.

    Having said that, Star Wars is NOT my thing, so I will NOT be spending my money on this - but I can think of other experiences where I wouldn't hesitate for a moment.

    The bigger question, and the one I do tend to struggle more with, are Disney prices in general (especially when it comes to park ticketing). When does supply and demand pricing become pure greed?

    I have to say, we dont see prices when going to Disney.

    If we start worrying about how much each thing costs, I dont think I would have such a good time, because Disney is super expensive. So we try to just pay and not analyze it too much

    I love the sound of this. I hope that they manage to improve the food as well.

    You know? I've never eaten at H&V! Why don't people typically find it good? Is it just blah buffet food, or is it something else?

    Sorry, I have been AWOL for quite a while. :sorry: I ate there in 99 0n our first visit. We went for breakfast and the choice was very very poor and the food bland to be honest. I have heard nothing great about it since from friends that have tried it. This is a great opportunity to make things better.

    Mags!! Welcome back!! It's quite good to see you, hope you're well xx

    Yes, hopefully this will turn things around for them. I'll be paying close attention to the reviews coming out of this new experience.

    Why thank you! You know how it is - you haven't a trip planned and you take a step back from forum life. Plans are afoot but I have no idea how it is going to pan out now that the kids are grown up. West coast and Orlando I am thinking.......

    Mags welcome back great to see you! We can talk about other stuff as well as Disney you know, feel free to chat away :D

    H&V is blah buffet generally but the experience may be good so I'm willing to try it. As Mari says, although I register Disney pricing before and after, whilst there, I can't think about it otherwise I just wouldn't enjoy it.

    Glad to hear that you've got some new plans in the works though, that's always fun!
