FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't, whether I got it free or NOT!

Take a Fat Wallet to Via Napoli Italy - World Showcase-Epcot

I know that another blog ranting about the overpriced under quality food at Disney World is hardly news. However after experiencing both the service and the food at the above restaurant, I need to vent.

First I would advise get the pizza. We didn’t have it but it looked good. Second grab your wallet and your heart when you look at the pizza prices. $16.00 is the price for a personal pizza. Wow! $28 is the price for an 8 slice large pizza. Again, WOW!

However I think the pizza is a better idea than the $28.00 veal parm which we had. The veal was ok; the sauce was insipid at best. The pasta was Spaghetti Torta. I googled Spaghetti Torta and discovered that it is “a good way to use left over spaghetti.” I was a bit dismayed to discover that my overprice meal was a good way for the restaurant to use the left over pasta from the rest of their menu. The recipe I saw called for baking but our server said it was fried. I prefer my eggs fried alone not with spaghetti.

Then there was the service. A delightful, attractive and inattentive young lady took our order. We had to ask for bread, then oil for the bread, then pepper, then grated cheese all of which was eventually delivered. Having spent some time in food service, those wants should or at least could have been anticipated.

The overall experience was dismal, at best. I expect more from Disney. I know they are going to take the Atilla the Hun approach to separating me from my money, particularly in the food category but still… I expect more and got far, far less. I suspect Walt would be as dismayed as I was.
