    Why is this only a temporary table service?

    I have yet to eat here because it is ALWAYS closed when I go.

    That's true...same with me! I think that I have seen it open once and we already had reservations for another restaurant!

    They are doing it as a test, if demand is high enough it will probably open full-time! I plan on telling as many guests as possible about it.

    Hey WDW, how about re-opening the Adventureland Veranda?

    Hopefully the change will help. The food there was terrible. Easily the worst place I have ever eaten at on Disney property. Consider yourselves lucky to have missed it.

    It is because they are using it to help feed people using the meal plan. I also have read that the convention food people are running the operation.
