Any rumors on Typhoon Lagoon reopening in the near future?

Let's hope they empty the newly open trash cans before they are overflowing

The birds lose twice. No more trash can french fries, and no more bugs hanging around the open trash cans.

Will no one think of the birds? :(

We saw several birds flying into the trash cans at the Poly looking for food and coming back out with french fries. This should solve that problem.

Any other news about trash cans in their normal state? Asking for a friend.

This will certainly make trash-top dining a more lovely affair!

Little by little, logic and reason will prevail. Just like the CDC acknowledging that outdoors transmission chances of Covid is actually 1%, not 10% Maybe the mask mandate can be lifted before the heat of summer sets in.

I kind of like them how they were but your example is perfectly logical and reasonable as well.
