    Oh well, at least we have the cheap, delicious costco hot dogs too (only 50 cents more expensive than in the US lol). We went to the blue jays game on Friday and spent $10.50 on hot dogs from the Rogers Center. Thats for ONE hot dog, no fries or drink. Take that Disney!

    lol I was being sarcastic. But ya, totally not fair. We were going to go to another jays game on Sunday but when we realized that both parking ($25!) and lunch would each be more than the tickets, we opted out. But compared to tourist attractions around here Disney really isn't all that badly priced.

    Well I get where you are coming from and now you get us I expect Disney to be overpriced but not ludacris. An $8.00 hotdog to me hits that ludacris level, now especially since they are a chicken blendy thing that is not getting wonderful reviews.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Oh ya compared to the food prices in your country its for sure way too much. I always just didn't get why I've never found it to be that bad, and then I realized its not that I'm crazy, its just my overpriced country making it seem normal priced. Now, don't even get me started on the cost of DVDs and Blurays ($40 for a stinkin bluray is why I pretty much only get Disney movies when they're presents).

    alrighty, so I'm gonna just show you a photo of the hotdogs from the Lunching Pad (which are the same size and price as the Caseys ones) so you can see how massive these things are. I couldn't finish mine for lunch, and I'm not a person who doesn't finish their meals! a Costco hotdog this isn't!

    Maybe still not worth $8 for it plus fries, but it was bigger than any burger I've had at Disney, and the burgers plus fries at Cosmic Rays are just under $9. Plus... this is meat topped with meat!

    Can't even see the hot dog in those pictures! It's looks like it's worth 8 dollars, but i rather stick with a regular hot dog with ketchup

    I just find it really funny how you can get soft drinks cheaper than water!

    Worst thing is, I read on a blog that Coke charges Disney NOTHING for it's products as part of an agreement to be the soft drink provider for all Disney Parks.

    It always boggles my mind that people buy bottled water instead of getting free ice water. Hey, each to their own I guess.

    See, I don't find the DP to be the great bargain it once was, unless it is free of course. We aren't big on desserts right after a meal, snack a different story. So we wouldn't normally order desserts for 2 meals a day and pay a tip on 4 desserts at our sit down.

    When the tip was included and an appetiser, it was great!
