Default Southern Palace Lobby

I remember standing in the Southern Palace Lobby waiting for the doors to open. Did the lobby ever serve other purposes? Did they ever sell food and drinks to visitors waiting inside at any point in its history?

Nope, I haven't seen that stand open for years. Now they just have the vending guys standing there and/or walking around the theatre. Does anyone know if the whole "no drinks in line" will be extended to the theatres? That would stink not being able to take a corndog and a coke into CrazyHorse.

Default All aboard!

I know you can still eat and drink on the trains and you can take the 15 dollar drink bottles on the Cave.... at least we have been able to so far this year.

Well, that particular ride isn't exactly filled with thrills, unless you push someone overboard.

Default Did he say that?

OK, considering the ride in question, was that supposed to be a straight line, or were you just not thinking about it?

Default I'm always usually sort of serious.

Yup, I sure am... 15 bucks for the sports bottle, minus your seasons pass 20 percent, BUT you get free refills that day and 99 cent refills all year. So... not a bad deal at all considering $3.50 for a medium this year....

If it has the SFOT logo on it, you'll have a souvenir which might actually be worth something one day. I cry whenever I think about all those Star Wars figures I sold at the family garage sale for 50 cents each.

STILL take food and drink on the train?

What happened to the days of conductors standing at the depot gates yelling "PLEASE FINISH ALL EATS, DRINKS, AND SMOKES BEFORE BOARDING THE TRAIN!!"?
