A section of Grand Avenue is behind construction walls as work begins on what looks like a new snack area.


The original snack kiosk in the area has been moved across the street, and the site has been walled off.

Access remains available alongside the walls to the area's Gonzo's Royal Flush restrooms.

The area is on the main walkway into Star Wars Galaxy's Edge and is an ideal location for a more substantial snack offering.

I think the pretzel is more insulting as those Mickey Pretzels are disgusting. Although I think I would pay about anything for an ice cold fountain Coke Zero during a long park day. I usually stick to free fountain water for the most part though

A 20 oz soda is small

A 20 oz soda is obnoxious

Food prices are getting obnoxious. $7+ dollars for a pretzel is insulting. $5+ dollars for a 20ounce soda is obnoxious.

I just got back from Studios. It doesn't look as jarring in person, as that area has kind of become a mishmash of general "city street" that references "California" somehow. It's not great, by any means. More forgettable. I will say, the wait time overposting was in full effect in Galaxy's Edge tonight. Smuggler's was posted at 30 minutes. Walked on... Rise was posted at 80 minutes (posted 40 minutes when we exited). Waited 10... Made for a more successful ride night than we anticipated.

With incredible seasoning! Easily the best churro at a Disney park

That was my initial reaction, it is well done, but just not for the area it sits in.

This feels out of place, like it was grabbed from one area and plopped down in another. The Rollercoaster Tycoon reference was spot on. Doesn't really mesh with it's Muppet surroundings.

Biden and Iger just left MCO after taking part in the ceremony.* This is a joke.

Will there be a ribbon cutting ceremony for such a major expansion?
