Pre-price-hike, I wouldn't. I can understand people getting sick. Post-price-hike, the expectation is there.

WHAT?!?!? I am entertained by the Dinsey Lovers (or haters, I can't tell the difference) on this board, but what?!?!?! They replaced one group with another due to illness. You all would be rightly screaming bloody murder if they had simply canceled the shows this weekend because they couldn't (or wouldn't) find a replacement. I appreciate sarcasm, but it has to be part of the conversation to make sense.

I guess they're trying to make up for that mid-festival price hike.

Great addition, have fun for those able to make it.

Change to the Eat to the Beat performer line-up for this weekend

I was so bummed when they weren't on the list this year, already was going on Saturday, now I'm over the moon. Smashmouth's lead singer had to be hospitalized apparently.

Someone else's pic of the cutting board that you get for going 4 times: It's pretty small, but still a nice lil' thing. Kinda like it better than the glasses from years past. Don't expect a full-sized cutting board though.

To anyone who has already gone, are there any favorite food/drinks that should be sampled? And conversely, any that should be avoided at all costs?

http://blogmickey.com/2018/08/photos-permanent-ralph-breaks-the-internet-family-play-zone-debuts-at-epcot/ Haven't seen this "new" playground mentioned yet. Blog Mickey says it's a permanent addition, although festivals have added similar structures in the past that didn't outlive the event. I'm all for areas for kids to run around and play, but this looks pretty terrible to me and seems very undersized. Please tell me this isn't permanent.

Do they have a comprehensive allergen list? I've got party members with deadly nut allergies
