Wow, what a great Event you guys got to attend!

And I wish they had those mini chicken pot pies and pizzas
available for sale in the park, regularly. They look perfect for
an awesome snack. Do they? Or will they? Just curious.

Thanks for all the reporting! You definitely covered everything
possible in it.

To my knowledge, the mini foods were just for the party. When the Food and Wine Festival rolls around they offer small food tastings, but that's only for a limited time. I agree with you that some year-round mini food options might be an interesting idea. :nina:

^ And if they sold this stuff in ToonTown in DL, as well as maybe Flo's in DCA,
the kids would love it! ;)

I absolutely hated the look of the tower in the first rendering but now that I see the actual tower, it looks really good. I'm looking forward to trying this version someday.

Yeah, the tower actually looks a lot better than the renderings made it out to be. I like how it changes to different colors at night. It doesn't fit the Hollywoodland theme at all though.

^I imagine "Hollywoodland" is going to be "Marvel Land" someday.

I like it that each version of ToT is unique--the Guardians of the Galaxy makeover looks like a lot of fun.
