So sad πŸ˜”

Tagged in: NEWS  
That's a big bummer. Seems like they were making such great changes with dining for awhile, and now they're kinda back-pedaling to mediocre stuff.  The PGG page is still up on the DL website, but I guess people are saying it's been closed for a few days now.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  633.2 #338 8:45AM
It does seem like they are back-pedaling.  I was hoping it was a rumor, but I tweeted them and they confirmed it.  I look forward to that Greek salad every trip. - Thumper13  516.7 #431 8:48AM
Darn, that's pretty disappointing.  I wish it had been more visible--I bet people didn't even know it was back there.  That was our favorite spot, though: loved the chicken kabob with tzatziki.  I guess I will just go to Bengal BBQ and bring my own tzatziki, rice and Naan.  πŸ˜‚ - Spoonful_O_Sugar  633.2 #338 8:57AM
That's not a bad idea! - Thumper13  516.7 #431 9:32AM
Huge bummer because that was always one of the better choices, for me - misschurro  7467.3 #12 10:08AM
I never ate there but it had been on my list of places to try. My husband didn't even know it was  there, I guess we don't walk that way that often.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  288.1 #1031 10:32AM
Bummer! The chicken kabob was a favorite here too. Will be very much missed.  - supertracy  471.9 #479 7:53AM

They had the strawberry brownie skewer - UTDISNEYFAMILY  2016.3 #87 4:52PM
I'm not sure I've ever been there.  Strawberry brownie skewers sound delish though!  Where was/is it located? - AngiMouse  116.6 #3368 6:00AM
It was back by Goofy's Sky School--Mediterranean skewers with sauce, brown rice, veggies, and Naan, as well as some good salad options. Really tasty and very different from the regular theme park hamburger/hot dog/Mexican food fare.   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  633.2 #338 6:35AM
Agreed, Spoonful_O_Sugar. Zomething different and it never felt heavy or like you were eating junkyπŸ˜‚ - misschurro  7467.3 #12 8:18AM
Yes!  I shared this with my husband for lunch the day before we ran the half marathon a couple years ago and it was just right.  Protein and carbs, but not too heavy-feeling.    - Spoonful_O_Sugar  633.2 #338 8:24AM
Sounds like the perfect combo. ::lesigh:: - misschurro  7467.3 #12 8:29AM
I have never really explored back there much.  I usually end up at the beer stand, then I walk along the way towards the ice cream cart past the swings.  I'm pretty sad that I have missed it. - AngiMouse  116.6 #3368 4:47PM
Sadly, there was never a consistent line there for the Mediterranean food.   - BaseballMickey  7958.9 #11 12:40PM

same thing happened to me in January :( I tried city hall and was not treated well. Talked to a lead and there was no empathy. Then went to DCA two days later and still no luck. I was told the CMs have to see an visual issue with you. I'm so disappointed by this new system. I get some people Ruined it for the rest but at least don't take it away. Now there are rides I'll never be able to go on aga  More...

Thank you for sharing all of your experiences with this situation☺️. For me, I felt that it was quite embarrassing to have to stand there and explain my disability to the CM (which by the was was younger than my grown children) who has no medical background, therefore they wouldn't know what I was talking about....it then becomes a lengthy conversation about my medical history in a room full of strangers. Now I'm not a person who is easily embarrassed, but the fact that I look healthy makes everyone turn around and give their ear to my conversation at that time. If this is the way they want to do things that great! Have an MD/DO/NP/PA/RN  in a room to the side where you can go in and discuss your concern with someone who understands and can make that call. I think the fact that my MD felt it was necessary to give me disability placard due to my disability is enough. They made me feel like I was lying...the first CM at city hall actually told me "if you're in line and you need to sit down, let the CM know"😳 um, at what point during the 50 minute wait in HM am I supposed to encounter a CM to let them know that?  She also said "you can have your party wait in line for you" sure!!! I'll have my 11 year old stand in line alone for 45 minutes for me... This is a broken system currently with too many people abusing it. With my ASD son, I'm now not quite sure he will be able to go...and I'm supposed to stand there with him (13 years old) and embarrass him by listing all of his issues....this makes me sad.   - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1475.6 #121 9:40AM
I could not agree with you more! It has turned into a very embarrassing situation for my husband every time he has needed to go to city hall for this. I understand wanted a clear picture of concerns...but to be standing in the room where there is zero privacy discussing medical issues with people that truly do not understand most medical problems is difficult...especially when you feel their judgments.  My husband is a OIF/OEF veteran with PTSD making Disney trips already very stressful...it's frustrating to know that we have fewer and fewer trips because this system just makes it more difficult to manage his mentality before we even really get started in the park. I understand they are trying to weed out the abuse of the system....but it shouldn't be done by making those truly struggling embarrassed or uncomfortable discussing personal information. - ktkakes  331.6 #770 10:16AM
They could just have people fill out a form with their limitations, rather than having to explain everything verbally in front of others?  Or have people walk into a more private room/area with the CM?   - Spoonful_O_Sugar  633.2 #338 10:51AM
It would be great if there could be some type of medical personnel involved. I still cry when I have to explain why we need a DAS. Hubs' injuries can't be seen, and I feel like we are being traumatized over and over.  Unfortunately, it is this way because a few dishonest people were able to take advantage of a trusting system.  Now, everybody is questioned. I think the system tries to make one person one mold, and we all don't fit that idea.  People can have the same injury, disease, disorder, but it affect people differently.   - Sugarbuzz  280.5 #1101 3:09PM
Ktkakes- I understand how you feel. My husband (also has PTSD) for a few trips sucked it up but finally asked for a pass and things became a lot less stressful. One of the highlights of our last trip was that we were able to go on Peter Pan as a family. That line is probably the worse for him. After reading this post I am so worried about us going in May.  - MrsGrumpy2002  209.2 #1943 3:27PM
Oh my gosh yes Peter Pans line is horrible!!! So tightly confined and slow moving...and it does get quite noisy with all the people in the area. I hope that they can develop something more efficient that is less intrusive with the average Joe CM without any medical knowledge.  Good luck to everyone having to deal with this! - ktkakes  331.6 #770 3:36PM
Just know each situation is case by case. I'm sorry you felt the way you did and maybe that is something to address with guest relations, your experience with the DAS process. The point is not to "grill" you about your condition but rather determine the best course of action for you. No the guest relations cms are not medical professionals but they are trained for the positions they hold. It's unfortunate that people abusing the system has forced the hand to be more strict. With the queues being wider/larger to accommodate wheel chairs and ecv's they are directed to wait in the regular stand by lines.  - CM_tamstirr  560.2 #384 7:53PM
Aren't they not supposed to question or grill u in accordance to the ADA? But I can only imagine having to explain ur medic history in a room full of strangers who are younger than ur grown children who prob knows nothing about it. I'm sorry I hope they continue to work the kinks out.  - mickeyat78  2091.3 #79 8:08PM
I think ultimately the problem is that when people think disability they think wheelchair.  Unfortunately that leaves out a huge number of individuals who have to prove they have legitimate restrictions. But these disabilities end up being the ones faked the most because there us no visible sign of struggle.  - ktkakes  331.6 #770 2:18AM
Yes, they word it as "what are your concerns" but the only way you can explain your concerns is to tell them what's wrong with you. I agree that they should have a form or a private area where people can fill them in and not have to stand there like a criminal trying to prove they aren't lying. We go back again in July, and I don't relish having to deal with this againπŸ˜” - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1475.6 #121 5:23PM
Wow, the GAC/DAS system seems to get crazier every trip.  We always carry a letter from our son's doctor as well as my state issued disabled card plus we have our service dog.  I hope things get better for those who truly need this service  - BombFrogFormerCM  1062.7 #182 1:00AM
This happend to me last time at the parks as well. I got this response from a CM, then a lead and then another CM at DCA. I've used the DAS system for years & now my park expierence has changed dramatically. They tell you we aren't doctors, my mother is an RN/NP and for them to say it's not there place to know your condition but they seem to be judging and not believing is wrong. I get people abuse it but please don't let others suffer who need this pass  - the_wolff   363.4 #661 9:44PM
I'm a cast member and fully understand how the new DAS system works. My family went to the parks early December and my (then) 7 year old son was with us and has AD/HD. When I went to inquire about DAS for him I explained he has AD/HD and fidgets and fusses if confined in a "tight" space for extended periods of time. The CM asked me what he does and I told her he has fits and hits and makes a huge scene....she seems reluctant to give it to me but did. I only got return times for attractions with waits over 20 mins bec of his condition. (He's even on meds for it.) The point here is take your time explaining your situation to the CM. They need to know the reason you're not able to stand in the regular stand by line. It is up to City Hall and Chamber of Commerce to issue the DAS and its all done on your park ticket now and you're entire party must be there so all cards can be scanned initially.  - CM_tamstirr  560.2 #384 8:49AM

This is how it was at Thanksgiving for us and all went well. - BombFrogFormerCM  1062.7 #182 1:01AM
But, why was the CM reluctant to give it to you?  I'm sorry, but I see a real trend here of being rude and condescending to the guests. People who, if they didn't exist, these CMs would have no job!  They need to fix this system quickly before the lawsuits eat up all that Disney profit!  I have seen too many friends here on MW tell the story of being belittled and made to feel like trash!  That is just wrong, and there isn't anything magical about it!  πŸ˜‘😑😑 - MeridaFan  4244.2 #37 9:39PM
 Yeah what @meridafan said. I am a big disney fan but I am disappointed to hear such experiences lately.  - bearlove  150.2 #2780 10:31PM
City Hall and Chamber of Commerce asks questions to help determine what course is best for your particular need. They have been reluctant to give me the card bec on certain days my son could just utilize the regular FP system. What NONE of you seem to understand is, the CMs working those positions are TRAINED and trained well...it's the guests perspective that sometimes creates the issue. The guest isn't getting what they "want" or think they're "entitled" to. I'm sorry if that's too "honest" but as a cm I have seen guests get very angry over not getting something they feel they're entitled to bec "they paid a lot to be there" or "they're a pass holder" or "it's their last day in the parks" etc....the bottom line is, we as cast members know how much is paid to enter and we are trained to treat EVERY GUEST the same and make every moment a magical one for ALL.  - CM_tamstirr  560.2 #384 10:36PM
This must be one of the most difficult CM positions. Kudos to those who try to provide this type of customer service. I don't think I could. ❀️ - Darlingwendi  1228.1 #149 10:57PM
Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be the case.  Not all CMs are treating every guest with compassion and understanding.  It's a very uncomfortable position to have to be put in, and I've heard, seen and experienced CMs doing anything but making it a magical experience.  I understand that there are some who act elitist, rude and unkind, and I'm aware there are those that abuse it.  The problem is, those who are none of those things are routinely being made to feel horrible for their need of assistance.  I'm sorry, but this is a very flawed system and I do hope the Disney execs or whomever is in charge of this,  really start taking notice of how un-magical many feel in this situation.   - DisneyFanZoe  1249.3 #144 11:24PM
I have found it much better with my experience. I even got my pass re-printed (that changes the number). I went to one of the guest relations kiosks. They asked which person was the DAS. That's when it dawned on me the new pass. They associated it right then and there. Didn't even ask questions. It unfortunately does seem hit and miss.  They also give you a "green" bordered piece of paper to help you remember return times. I would ask for and keep that for next time. I also think once you have it, sometimes the way you ask helps. Just letting them know you need to "renew" your DAS helps. I've seen that work with many people at both locations.  Often the kiosks don't have a lot of people, so you could possibly pick a time where there isn't someone in line and they have two CMs. Hope a couple of those suggestions help. I think splitting the "DAS" into two categories has caused a lot of confusion (wheelchair and original "green" DAS). - DLKenCA  2862.2 #50 4:23PM
I had an unpleasant experience with renewing my DAS yesterday while at DCA. I'm a disabled vet with mobility issues. I don't use an assistive device (yet) but standing in one spot for an extended period of time will cause pain and swelling that ends my day at the parks. I also have PTSD that makes standing in a crowd difficult without having an anxiety attack. I went to the kiosk on Buena Vista to have my DAS renewed and the CM (a plaid, no less) made me explain my disability in public (HIPPA violation) and then denied me because I don't use a wheelchair or any other device. I was not going to discuss my PTSD in public so I left and went to the Chamber of Commerce office at the front of DCA. That CM was polite and understanding and even offered to take me to a private room to discuss my issues. She quickly and happily renewed my DAS based on this info and now all is well again. Oh- the wife was so mad she almost tossed the premium AP's in the trash and said we would never go back......glad a reasonable CM was working at the counter! - Firelt  238.6 #1544 9:05PM
I'm glad everything worked out for you. I've wondered that before, since I'm very familiar with HIPAA because of working with govt contracts. I don't think most people know that and maybe that's why they try to turn people away. Not sure. I hear in FL it's even worse... - MinnieMousewife  916.7 #210 9:14PM
My daughter had issues last night too she had use the pass several times in DLR, got a time for racers.  We went on the ride then to the kiosk....thefirst  kiosk said she did not even have one .. They said there wifi was down. Told us to go up to chamber of commerce We stopped by the one a BV Street and tried again took us 15 min to get here's renew... After being interrogated about here disability , even with me there telling about her issues and that she has had one for years.  I just wish The training was consistent with the plaids.. @firelt Thank you for your service!! Thank you for you sacrifice for us!  - Fantasmicfan1  4907.1 #28 9:21PM
