  1. ANOTHER great episode! Keep em’ coming! Even though Pizza Planet isn’t the BEST pizza around- not even close!- it is special to US because we have had lunch there every trip as a family. It’s just convenient as it seems we are always in that area of HS near lunch. It brings back alot of memories with my kids begging to go play the arcade games after we eat even though we are in freaking Walt Disney World! LOL

  2. Unfortunately of all the parks DHS is the worst and so it makes it one of the better options. 🙂
