Some of these might have been last year, too. Or whenever, they are changes for us. We really don't bother coming that far for what is offered anymore. ☹
Some of these are the usual "WTF did they do this". Simply Southern in Aquitaine? Really? Painting a solid color over the stocks is just F'n laziness.
Verbroken photos out - 75% in. The aforementioned Aquitaine snack stand. I didn't think anything would make me appreciate Union Jax. Thank you Elmo. Metal detectors. They. Just. Suck. Nice fence where the trees fell at the entrance. Extra decorations to go with Bel Concertino? Poor plain stocks. Not sure when they where painted over. Eh. the new Grogan glasses are easier to see at least.

Oh, and next we'll be paying 10 cents for maps to put in our 10 cent bags. Don't get me wrong. The app is a good thing. Just thinking of the park's pettiness.

I have yet to pay for one, yet I get a bag every time. Not that I have tried to avoid paying but I just figure I will put whatever in my pocket after paying but generally they just drop it in a bag anyhow.I don't think I would label the park requiring a 10¢ donation to the conservation fund in order to get a bag as petty. It actually seems like a good idea to me and discourages people from getting bags just for the sake of getting bags and it all goes to a good cause.
I will say that in my experience they have been rather hit or miss when I purchase an item. Some cashiers ask me if I want one and then charge if I do and then others just give me a bag without charging.I have yet to pay for one, yet I get a bag every time.

Are you referring to the crosswalk between parking lots? And is that in the morning or in the evening?So apparently the park has installed a gate at the crosswalk and will now force you to use the tram.
Yes the one heading out of the Germany lot. It was closed and blocked by a gate this afternoon. I imagine that they do open it during peak times hence the gate instead of fence but in the past it's been open at all times.Are you referring to the crosswalk between parking lots?

I ask because just last night they were letting TONS of folks walk through there in the dark at park close, and had two employees stopping the cars at every opportunity.
