I read that, too. Makes the dining plan a lot less attractive.

It has been stated a couple of times that the Corondo Springs is an omisiosn and they will be participating. Nit sure how accurate that is though.

I think we will see more changes bewtween now and Jan 2007, maybe more will come back in.

The story that makes the most sense to me now is that the original contracts for the Dining Plan, which started mid-2005, were for 18 months, ending 12/31/2006. So it is now time for all the non-Disney restaurants to renegotiate their participation in the Dining Plan. Until contracts are signed, it wouldn't be appropriate to list the restaurant in the 2007 brochure. Contract negotiations for 2007 and beyond would, most likely, be aimed to be concluded in the November/December timeframe.

I don't see Bistro de Paris anywhere in the list! I know it is different than Chef de France.

But has Bistro de paris ever been on the regular ddp??? Not that I've ever seen. :confused3

...However, Bistro de paris is available on the 2006 premium dinining plan (but it's not listed on the 2007 one).

Nope. It wouldn't have been there either as I saved the brochure Disney gave me when I checked in last September. (I compared it to the 2006 one when I booked this year's trip and found very few changes).

Thanks for the info. Too bad, I wanted to try it with my DDP. I have heard it is really good.
