The People Mover - A similar attraction is expected to debut in the next few years, Tony Baxter is in Charge of Disneyland Park and Tomorrowland is expected and planned for a COMPLETE overhaul and re-make of the entire land in the next 5 years or so depending on cash flow from guests and how busy the parks are…could be sooner…could be later, thats the news/rumor anyway (it will be a good year re-make) and the People Mover is expected to return in some form, many ideas have gone around from bringing back something like the People Mover to something like the Pods you see in the movie “The Incredibles”.
As for Restaurants by Pirates, there is The Blue Bayou, Great Restaurant, High Prices, atmosphere that cant be beat - the restaurant is located in Pirates in the Bayou section of the attraction and is like nothing else you will find. Then there is Royal Street Veranda, located on the left side of The Blue Bayou, it is a walk-up eatery, serves soups in bread bowls, drinks and some desserts, good food at a reasonable price. There is Also Cafe Orleans across the way, which has food to die for, not to mention the best garlic fries and ratatouille in this world! Awesome patio seating with wonderful views of Rivers of America and lovely indoor seating as well. And then further on is The French Market, buffeteria style dining, pretty good choices in food options from Salads to Fried Southern Style Chicken to Sandwiches, often live music and entertainment is offered on the outdoor patio, its located near the New Orleans Square Train Station. All are great places!
