The 'World Showcase of Flavors' food truck from Downtown Disney will be visiting Epcot this weekend.

Look for the truck to be parked near World Showcase Plaza at the entrance to World Showcase, serving 11am to park close from April 18 through to Sunday April 20 2014.

I am trying to forget the 70s! :hungover:

Joni Mitchell said it all in 1970 in Big Yellow Taxi: They paved paradise to put up a parking lot.

Wonderful wonderful post! All that was once special about World Showcase is now being downconverted to a mall and food court. As themed environments get better in our local malls, the specialness of a trip to WDW goes away. It's not very different from what is happening to Las Vegas now that casinos are popping up across the country. Next step? You won't be able to see the lagoon without a reservation. Eventually? Pave over the lagoon so that the food trucks have more room.

It wasn't blocking anything. If you look at the map on MDE, it is right at the beginning of the WS, coming away from the ball down the center pathway. It is on the right side before you get to the Pineapple Promenade. If it is blocking anything, it might be infringing on seeing the flower displays across the pond by Capt EO- but that's stretching it.

Bring back the double decker as a food truck...Second level has seating and doubles as an Illuminations $35 a head for above crowd level viewing...

This is an American phenomenon? Certainly in the rapid growth and popularity. The reality is street stalls are a way of life in the rest of the world.

You got that right.. I didn't go to the Disney ones because it wasn't anything close to the ones at home but you have a great point.

Exactly. If they are used temporarily to meet guest demands at peak season I see no harm. Otherwise you could end up with a situation that the MK has where so many locations are shuttered most if not all the time. BTW, Wonder what is going on with the 'Veranda' location lately?

Isn't the genius of food trucks that they can move around as needed? And isn't this why the 4 trucks were each themed to different parks? I don't understand the issue here, this isn't permanent, it's being placed in a park during a busy weekend to relief some pressure and hopefully keep guests slightly happier. Maybe the location isn't fantastic, although I'd like to see pics before I pass judgment on what its "blocking".

And I say....what difference does it make? Are you implying that you can put lipstick on a pig? Make it All so magical? No matter how anyone slices it or dices it.....its bad. Plain and simple. No way to sugar coat this one. No way to spin it. Nope. Its a FOOD TRUCK!.......In WS! I am sure there will be those who can accept it and still have a very magical day. An effing food truck in WS! Anybody want to defend this? Anybody? Tell me how it isn't really that bad....that I am just spewing hyperbole.

I didn't report anything...I saw the original post and refreshed and it was gone. Maybe you should be a little less defensive...mate. Or maybe try and be more amusing in your attempts at humor. Either one.
