    Thanks Werner for another great article.

    Me and my family never ate their, but last year we tried the Paradise Garden Grill

    It was fantastic!!

    Better than a McDonalds Burger anytime!


    Thanks again Werner, and keep up the good work,

    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

      You forgot that there's no Oreo or M&M Toppings for your Mcflurry too ). Great article None the less.

          I would rather have the Captain Hook's Pirate Ship return serving tuna burgers out of it's galley as it did for over 25 years. That's very Dis-50's. Maybe Johnny Depp would come out and demonstrate his culinary skills with his scissorhands and slice celery once in a while when not walking the top deck as Captain Sparrow. PD

            Did anyone else see "In-n-Out" in the headline & think "Now that is what they should put in DCA"? I'm sure they couldn't afford the rent, but I'd love to have seen a classic In-n-Out drive thru in place of a McDonalds shaped like a giant Unidentified Flying Burger.

              Growing up I used to like Foster's Freeze which started in 1946 in Inglewood, California, and is considerd the first fast food chain still operating with "Food that's made to order". Dennis Wilson of the Beach Boys was sitting in a Hawthorne Fosters Freeze, when he saw the girl in the white T-Bird and Inspired their song Fun Fun Fun. Of course next to Tokyo Disneyland, in OLC's Expiari, you can get a real Kahuna Burger ( Pulp Fiction inspired) which is hard to beat in today's market with pineapple, bacon, avocado etc on it. PD

                Seeing the replies about the classic In-N-Out Burger drive-through and the original Foster's Freeze location reminds me of another reason why I didn't like Burger Invasion. The building with the giant cheeseburger on its roof failed to represent a particular place and time. It was neither convincing as "California Crazy" architecture nor as a flashback to the original McDonald's restaurants of the 1950s. It was just an amusement park food stand which failed to evoke any sense of charm, nostalgia, or California context.

                  I never did eat at Burger Invasion, as I didn't see the appeal of eating something I could have any day of the year inside a Disney park at a higher price. The giant sci-fi burger was just... weird. And tacky.
