Wow I had no idea that was happening!! Hopefully next year.

It was surprisingly good with a nice dose of spice. And is also a great base for the forthcoming drinks.

The L'Orange cotton candy is kinda disappointing. It just tastes like regular cotton candy with a vague citrus aftertaste. Maybe the batch mine came from didn't have enough flavoring, I dunno. Still a lot of cotton candy though. The loaded mac n cheese is killer and pretty filling.

I'm hopeful they will! I'd expect mostly more creative drinks to fit the theme.

For place where glowing illuminated things was the draw, it actually wasn't dark enough... there's a better way to pull that off, but I'm not quite sure what it is... they needed it to be more intimate and romantic, not just a room with some displays and a bar. For the amount of space they had, it should have been a place where you wanted to hang out and enjoy your drink... of course, also having better food and drink options would have helped. BUT, it's the first year for this... perhaps they can make improvements for next year.

It wasn’t necessarily a bad idea, just not well executed.

Light lab was a total waste of space.

I was underwhelmed by the LightLab. Food at all the kiosks was excellent. Wine selections were so so. We found better beer choices, which is okay if I’m going to a beer festival. We were able to eat/drink at 8 kiosks. We go back on the last day and I have a few more kiosks I definitely want to try.

Do you know when the taping is/was?

disneygeek90Sep 25, 2017

I went last night and had the same thoughts. No idea what it's for.

Anyone have an idea what the giant stage set up at the entrance to World Showcase this weekend was for? It was pretty unsightly, I'll be glad to see it gone...

Tony the TiggerSep 24, 2017

Or it was a Saturday night, so...

Bob HarlemSep 24, 2017

We went last night, the amount of drunks there this go around was quite noticeable, whoever said it wasn't a problem isn't really looking hard.
