I am drawing a complete blank here, where is the refreshment port in Epcot?


#3

I have no idea! I checked the map too? :biggrin:

I glad buzz is getting a bit of a refurb, the last few times we were on that ride, it kept breaking down!


#4

I think that is the little area that has African Masks and drums over the bridge, between China and Germany-I think…


#5

I think you might be right . . . that is called the outpost or something?


#6

Oh ok, I was looking at the map too, and I couldn’t figure it out.

great info.!
you can always check the link above too.


#8

I think that is the refreshment port too-Good info thanks!


#9

I thought it was cool they were bringing back the surfing lessons. I know some mbers were disappointed when they were canceled on them.


#10

wait a sec! I think that is the Outpost or something. The refreshment port is near the entrance to FW from WS-past Canada-it’s mostly McDonald’s fries I think. I’m almost positive. Sorry I gave wrong info the first time:angel:


#11

Yes, I think that’s right. I wonder if that’s because McDonald’s is no longer a sponsor at WDW. We noticed when we were there in Feb. that it was the last place serving McDonalds.

As for Buzz Lightyear - that’s going to disappoint a lot of people.


#12

Refreshment Port is near Canada; right as you come into WS from FW on the right. You’re right in that it’s very McDonald-like.


#13

Just an FYI on this-I called today to try to book the surfing school for our trip in May, and I was told by the cast member that they aren’t doing bookings until “further notice”. I tried to press for more info and mentioned that I saw online that they would be taking bookings for classes after May 23 (with the hopes that she may “look up” the info-she just said “no, we aren’t booking that” without any hesitation-seemed to me like she answered without looking it up or checking or anything…she may have JUST answered the same question for another guest, but to me, it seemed like she wasn’t aware that they are supposedly now taking bookings…) but she really had no info-just “until further notice”…anyone else booked it yet since this info was released??


#14

Call back and try again . . . something CM are the last to know! :rolleyes:

And, per the Mc Donald’s thing . . . where we were there this weekend, the BIG McDonalds by the All Star resorts, the one that was all decked out in the big burger, fries and soda . . . all taken down, just a small white building, still McDonalds, but either being refurbed or redesigned for something to take it’s place.


#15

Hall of Presidents closing for re-furb. Is this to add President Obama to the stage?


#16

Yep! I believe it is reopening on July 4


#17

Anyone have pics of the Fort Wilderness pool refurb?
