No! Just no! Or, wait until I can get there and walk out with the sign.  ;D

Thank you, Willow.  I wasn't arguing with you - I know it's not a park.  That was my public service announcement for those that need to know.  But, there is no extreme version of celiac - if you have it, you have it - same damage done regardless of how much you do or do not consume.  But, thanks for the reassurance about the Belle. I'll consider it during a non busy time of year, but I'm also sneaking in my own food in case I see something suspect.  ;D  I had a friend who tried it, and did not get a safe meal.

A coffee and tea shop would've been nice there.

Bringing no more food in the park will be the end of SDC for me and several family members with the same food issues.  We travel by necessity with a doctor's note needing to take our own food.  If I can't bring it in, I'm definitely done. There are under 3 things in the park that I can safely eat.

I don't know of ANY park that doesn't allow food into the park in the case of those with restricted diets because of allergies or illnesses.  Even those that generally ban food from being brought into the park will make exceptions for babies, small children, and those with illnesses.  I really don't think that's something you'll ever need to worry about happening at SDC.

Just an FYI for those that need to know - You are not allowed to take your own meal on the Branson Belle.  I went round and round with them about it.  They assured me a safe meal could be provided (gluten free for a celiac), and I highly doubt it knowing the care to prep work that must take place in a kitchen serving meals to hundred of others at the same time.  The kitchen manager personally called me a few days later to let me know they promised it would be safe and that all I needed to do was alert my server. In other words, not safe for a celiac.

Shave, the hubs is in a group with a gentlemen that worked at SDC for years and years. He retired from a prestigious park character position the year before the corporation took over.  I wish I could've heard the conversation they had.  Hubs came home talking about it.  He essentially talked about most of the things you said in the above post.

I want the sign!

It got stuck at one point today.  Not sure if it had riders on it as the trees have leafed out,and it's now hard to see from the Culinary School porch. Didn't seem to take too long to get it running.  I heard some joke about Harvey getting to ride alone, so I'm assuming that was a dummy test drive, but the others on the porch seemed to think it was a real person being really brave.  ;D

Today was as crowded as I've seen it this year, but I don't go on weekends (excluding today  ;D), and it was very manageable.  Vincent's shows were great as usual.  I only planned to attend the first one, but Hubs wanted to see it one more time.  The first show was mostly gospel, which might turn a few off, but it was fantastic.  I saw the last one of the day, completely different, and Barbara Fairchild came up on stage from the crowd and sang a couple numbers with her. What's the attendance today, Sand?

I saw Po Ramblin Boys there a couple days ago, and the sound was fine.

I saw the 11:30 Vincent show, and it was packed out! Seriously, not another person could fit in there, and people kept coming in after the show started. Opera House employees had their hands full today. I left right at 12:30, so not sure about afternoon crowd.  It did seem like there were far fewer kids there this morning than yesterday.

Sand, it was a great, but short, visit.  Watched opening ceremonies (they're back to honoring veterans), listened to the Homestead Pickers at the Gazebo, saw Rhonda Vincent at the Opera House, and left.  We planned to stay longer, but something came up (no emergency).  Here's a photo of today.  My guess is attendance was a bit higher than yesterday.

I have to go to Branson next Wednesday for "work" to meet up with one of my employees.  I am thinking I may go Wednesday for a while before I have to meet up with him.

Probably a good idea.  wed will be reasonable for the time being... Probably wont get busy during the week until after memorial day..

Today.  as of 4:00-  about 5500 people.. ;D

No way do I believe that! Shows were full, walkways were full, and we waited in a couple of lines to eat.  There were at least 6 different field trips going on based on the kids with matching shirts.  I waited in line at the bathroom.  I left sometime between 3:30 and 4.
