Went last night and spoke with the associate working the lounge. He told my wife and I that the word among the associates is that there are talks of having the lounge in a permanent building next year. He agreed that he was upset about the removal of the bottled drinks. He also said that the word is that there may be fountain drinks next year. Again, take this with a grain of salt.
Also, lounge issues aside, I do have to say that we have enjoyed the heck out of our prestige pass FOTL ticket for Haunt night rides on The Beast.
