>>>>You can sample food from different cultures and the cost (i read) is like $2-$5? Or you can purchase a gift card that you can put money on and use like cash as you walk around the marketplace?<<
The CM’s at the booths have a portable credit card machine that looks like a Palm pilot or you can pay cash.
>>Do you need a ticket for this or can you just roam around the park with your normal hopper?<<
You’ll need park admission, but nothing special to sample at the booths. They are there and you walk up to it like any other food kiosk.
