Thanks for sharing the visit, Adam.

as does the Gnocchi.. what kind of seafood is in there? I was expecting shrimp, but based on color looks like more salmon?

Raglan Road looks really great. There have been several reports from Disney Springs now that have been amazing. Seems like the renovations are a hit.

Who cares about the parking fees? Ive been to Disney probably 10-12 times in the past 20 yrs and have never stayed on resort and never once regretted the decision

For the price you pay at a Disney resort you can stay at MUCH nicer resorts in the Orlando area, this is especially nice if you're looking to escape the cultural sterilization of the Haus of Mouse and looking to find some adult nightlife, bars, restaurants, etc.

Disclaimer, I'm not a Disney freak or one of those "Disney Adults" but I do enjoy a couple days at the parks while in Orlando, and never saw the value of staying on property. Being cattle called is such a turn off and the resort transportation never appealed to myself as a value. I'm sure its a different story for those of you with kids or feel the need for mickey pancakes.

PS. The Ritz Carlton and Waldorf Astoria Orlando still offer free parking, and they're much more suited for an adult trip!

I would love to go point by point and explain how insanely stupid and obnoxious your entire post is, but I don't think you are intelligent enough to even understand, so instead I'll just go with one of my favorite GIFs...

Actually, no, I will say this...

What I find ironic about your post is how a couple of years ago you made a post about how you were bashed at Cedar Point for your likes, beliefs and way of life. Now you are doing the EXACT SAME THING and being super rude and obnoxious towards those who enjoy Disney and like to stay at the Disney resorts. Maybe next time before you go berating a group of people for how they choose to enjoy life, you'll think twice about being so rude towards them.

You could have made your same points without being such a complete rude condescending jerk towards Disney fans, but **YOU CHOSE** to go that route. And you remember how upset you were when other people chose to use words that bashed you? Yeah, you're doing the same as those people.

Raglan Road is my favorite place to eat (so far) at Disney Springs. I always get the Nom Nom Wings!
