I have eaten at The Basement, er Cellar a few times and its good. I think its popularity is a product of the dining plan, especially the first incarnation of it. The Cellar offered great bang of the buck, as well as being the most “normal” meal in world showcase. During free dining, It was jammed. It seems to be full all the time now.
I remember a trip I took in 02 (I think) where I was trying to make a last minute PS from guest services in Epcot. The CM indicated that there was some availability at Nine Dragons, and plenty of room in the cellar. Now you can’t get near it.
Canada made a new territory recently right? You’ll need the name for the trivia. I couldn’t remember Prince Edward Island last time.
