There aren't any vendors in San Marco that aren't park run, so the park wouldn't be concerned about them losing potential foot traffic.That place would get more foot traffic were it not the case that every map-wielding guest can see it's plainly a dead-end section of the park.
Pantheon ought to drive traffic and business, at least for the next few years. A long-term solution (with no hope of occurring) would involve Festa no longer being a dead end. How lovely it would be to stroll through the Garden of the Gods and end up at the north end of the Oktoberfest bridge.
Park terrain is such a mixed blessing sometimes... certain San Marco vendors may have a strong opinion too.
Still. Nice to imagine.
Maybe the pizza will be better, now that people will be paying attention.
As it happens, the Tempesto Panini was not, in fact, food. It was sludge and garbage masquerading as a squished sandwich. We all would have been better off, if it had actually been a landscaping project.TemPesto Panini should have been tagged: Sure looks like food, but officially a landscaping project.
As for the renamed Pantheon Pizza... The world's fastest multi-launch meal. Some launches out forward, some launches out backward.
I agree. With (for the next few years, anyway) their 2 big guns coaster-wise are in the same area. I'd think they'd try to capitalize on the increased foot traffic by both the culinary and merchandising departments.Didn't realize that.
Though I imagine the park would still be concerned about losing foot traffic to those areas...
