Somewhere I heard that the Magic was getting new menus...Does anyone know if this is true? I thought they were supposed to start either this past week, or next week. Am I making this up? :confused: Thanks

If I understand correctly, they already have started on the Wonder. But, no one has gotten off the boat yet, so no new menus to scan. I'd gues we'll see the new menus uploaded somewhere in a week if not sooner.

Please tell me they are not eliminating lobster from the menu! You have no idea how much I have been looking forward to lobster night!

A friend of mine got off the Wonder Sunday morning and she mentioned the re-workings of the menu. The only specifics she mentioned was an offering of tuna tartare as an appetizer and an ahi tuna dish for an entree (both of which made us very happy). :thumbsup2

The last time they had a major change was in 2008. They seemed to stay the same for a while before that.

Just got off...The new menus are wonderful. Definitely kicked up a notch. The new Sea Bass entree at Triton's was to die for. Don't remember specific items but I didn't have anything that wasn't "Wonder"ful. Of course, not all people will agree...:)

Those menus are from a few weeks ago and are virtually identical to what we had last summer, so I would say they aren't the new menus.

There are a few menus you can keep. There are others that are in exciting, very fancy folders. People take pictures of those, but you don't get to bring them home.


We were once given some of the nicer menus--our server explained that they were being replaced in a few weeks and the ones we were given wouldn't be used any more. They are nice souveniers, but not anything people would want to see as they show the old foods.

I have not done this, but I read on poster on a recent TR say that she got the menus by asking at guest services desk (I think she told them she wanted them for her scrapbook). They gave her photocopies of the menus which she posted.

I've not been on Disney yet, but on each of the other 7 cruises I've been on they had paper copies of all menus to give out. Otherwise I'll take pictures and post ASAP. I'm on the 3/29. Hopefully we'll get them sooner and I'll be off the hook! That would save me some money for internet anyway.

I just got off the Wonder on Sunday and this was my 3rd Disney cruise. I though the food this time was very disappointing with the exception of Palo. I did not have a single thing that I enjoyed. I let them know it on my survey too. The cutbacks are obvious.

I told you not everybody would like the new menus. The quality of the new menus, IMHO, is surpassing to the old. I enjoy good high quality restaurants. I guess I am a foodie. I love good food. If you enjoy good food, you will enjoy the new menus. If not, go get a hot dog or chix fingers with fries. I don't remember before, but in AP and Triton's, they now have a dessert sampler with 3 smaller versions of desserts for people who can't make up their mind, or want a taste of several.

What are some of the seafood selections?

<

I can tell you what I enjoyed.
The embarkation buffett was the same.
Parrott Cay- the rib-eye is still on the menu and that's what I got.
The chilled mango soup is still there and still very good.
Sorry I can't remember more about PC- I guess I was too excited to be on vacation.
Broiled salmon and grilled chicken is on the menu every night.

Triton's lunch is the same.

For dinner at Triton's-
Appetizer- a new Duck Confit- very good if you like duck
Salad- a new citrus salad with oranges and avacodo and a citrus dressing. Very light and very good
Entree- Sea Bass over mashed potatoes with small pieces of onionand zuchinni with a blackberry sauce- YUMMO!! Best dish of the cruise.
Dessert- sampler plate of choc mousse and 2 others I can't remember- all very good.

AP-
Butternut Squash soup is still there and still de-lish!!
Entree- A new dish that is a short rib over mash potatoes. Very good and fork tender. Men ask for 2 ribs. Very meaty but you need 2.
Dessert was again a sampler of 3 desserts that were wonderful.

Sorry I can't remember all the details, but like I said, if you like good food, you will enjoy the new menus.
This was our 5th cruise.

I just sailed on the Wonder this past weekend, and I have to say, I was also disappointed in the dining this time. It just didn't seem up to par as in past cruises I've done with Disney. Even our service team in the dining room was very poor - our drink glasses were empty most of the time and we were still waiting on our dessert in Triton's at 10:15pm. We almost missed the Pirate fireworks because they were so slow.

Palo's was excellent, as usual, and the service was phenominal!

those of you who are disappointed - are you telling those who can do something? i dont know who you would email or on the ship maybe the head server guy

i think if you aren't liking the new menu you have to tell someone or else how would they know

If you have an issue with anything on the ship, you can note it on your comment card (they specifically ask about each menu), you can write in comments, you can write a letter while you are sailing and either put it in the comment box or give it to guest services. When you get home, you can write to guest relations in Celebration, FL.

Yes, you can tell the head server, but you'd do better to talk with the dining room manager or food service manager.

We are getting on the Magic this Saturday. I will try to remember to take pictures of each of the menu's and post them when we get back. I tried asking for the menu's on our cruise in Oct, but our head server told me that they don't give those out. Maybe this time i'll ask guest services and see what they say. It would be great to have the actual menu's to scan in and post.

GS will give you copies of the menus if you ask or your head server can give you print outs of what they have in their folder that lists the ingredients. If you make this request the first night they will get it to you before the end of the cruise.

Do you remember who your servers were? We had a similar experience a couple of cruises ago and were very disappointed. Just wondering if if could be the same guy because every other cruise has been just about perfect!

The Lighter Fare item are now noted by a Mickey Head with a chef hat on the regular menu.
The cruise line logo is the new notation for "Guest's Favorites".
That's funny because the guest's favorites were the new dishes.:)

Wow I really thought someone would have posted the menus by now.
I just got off the Wonder this morning and assumed someone else would have posted by now. I took a few pics of the menus but nothing spectacular. Each restaurant now offers a 'Sweet Temptations' dessert trio which is really fun.

I really loved the s'mores cake at Parrot Cay


Here are the few pics I have:

I also wanted to mention that they didn't serve butter with any of the bread selections. They had different spreads at each restaurant. It was an olive spread at Triton's, garlic at Animator's and beans I think at Parrot Cay. I'm a huge butter fan so I didn't really like it. I asked for butter most nights, and got little containers a whipped spread which was ok, but not really butter.

I am on the ship right now on my iPhone. Menus look great! Here are some changes I noticed:

Animators:
Potato samosas
Asian short ribs
Salmon in phyllo
"Mulan" gazpacho
Tuna tar tar

Tritons:
Duck confit
Sea bass
Lobster mac n cheese

Parrot is not up yet. Buffet was amazing, do not miss the strawberry soup.

Hope I helped!

We thought the same thing on the first day until our breakfast server told us they still have the REAL butter.
Ask for the GOLD butter. THat's a high point of a disney cruise is the butter.

DD will be so disappointed. When we went over the previous menus together, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie was the one thing she has been talking about since.

I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it really, but on the Galley tour they told us they would not be using any peanut or peanut butter products until the shoreside team approved them after the whole recall thing a few months ago.

I am on the ship right now on my iPhone. Menus look great! Here are some changes I noticed:

Animators:
Potato samosas
Asian short ribs
Salmon in phyllo
"Mulan" gazpacho
Tuna tar tar

Tritons:
Duck confit
Sea bass
Lobster mac n cheese



Lobster mac n cheese? I'm intrigued. Was that an entree or an appetizer?

I also wanted to mention that they didn't serve butter with any of the bread selections. They had different spreads at each restaurant. It was an olive spread at Triton's, garlic at Animator's and beans I think at Parrot Cay. I'm a huge butter fan so I didn't really like it. I asked for butter most nights, and got little containers a whipped spread which was ok, but not really butter.


Yum...the olive spread and garlic sound so yummy. I am all about the bread....can't wait to check out the cruise and the new menus at the end of the year!

The Lighter Fare item are now noted by a Mickey Head with a chef hat on the regular menu.
The cruise line logo is the new notation for "Guest's Favorites".
That's funny because the guest's favorites were the new dishes.:)

These were probably items that were 'tested' on some of the special itineraries (Med and Panama Canal cruises). I'm hoping some of my 'new favorites' from the PC cruise are going to show up on the new menues.

They did the special breads with dipping sauces every night and some of them were great and some only OK (in my book anyway). We made sure to leat our servers know which we liked the most. :thumbsup2

When I was on the Wonder last week (the last sailing with the old menus), I really enjoyed an ahi-seared tuna appetizer in parrot Cay. I hope that they did not get rid of this.

ALL of the chilled soups were great.

Also, I enjoyed all of the bread spreads each night. I didn't realize this was new... or have they always had this?

The reason I said it was because it's not on the new Animator's Palate menu that was posted.

Here is the old menu, which, according to your post, you ordered from...

On the galley tour yesterday someone commented that they hadn't seen any peanut butter or peanut items and wanted to know if it was due to children and allergies. The chef responded by saying it was due to the recall. My DF commented that they had given him a container of peanuts with his margarita the day before :confused3 So who knows what's up with that?

The lobster mac and cheese is an entree. i had it last night. Here is a pic:

It was more like lobster on pene with Alfredo sauce and I can't say too much about it as the boat was rocking so much I lost my appetite real quick and didn't eat too much, but it was the dish recommended by our server.

The recall was concerned with processed peanut product, like paste, oil and butters. So any whole peanuts would not be part of the concern for DCL.

The strawberry shortcake was pretty high up on my list, as it looked like good old fashioned strawberry shortcake. I only hope that I will be able to get it elsewhere on the boat.

I was also surprised to see such a fan favorite (PB Pie) off the menu.

Meh. Give me good old-fashioned dessert over fancy schmancy stuff any day of the week.

That is part of what has me worried about the new menus. We are pretty simple people, and the menus are a little too fru fru for our liking. But, after going over the menus, I think we were able to find some things that would suit us pretty well.

Now, with all of it changing, I am afraid all of our choices will be gone, and that they will amp up the fru fruness, making it even harder for us to find something to eat. I mean I don't want to eat the lighter fare every single night.

Go on try the frou frou foods you might like them,
The best part of going on a cruise is trying foods you wouldn't try if you had to pay for each appetizer or entree. You can order it and if you don't like it you can order something else. Make it a point to try something new each night, you might be surprised at what you come to like. DH had never had lamb until we went on a cruise and he ordered it and found out he really likes it.

Yeah, it is not that I am afraid to try things. I do not like seafood, but I may be open to trying the lobster mac and cheese.

But there are certain things I do not like, and certain things I refuse to eat. Lamb is one of them. Duck is another.

I am remaining hopeful until I see the menus.

Well, if it is an animal I would see at a petting zoo or in a Disney movie, I generally steer clear.

And echoing the above poster's sentiments, it would break my heart if they do not have creme brulee.

Touche. My mom had chickens when she was growing up. To this day, she will not eat chicken.

If I saw cows and pigs wandering around my back yard, I probably would not eat that either. And it is not like we are eating adult sheep. We are eating poor, defenseless little baby sheep. Why do we eat the babies and not the adults?

Sorry for getting this topic waaaaaaaaaay :offtopic: I was just trying to explain why me and my family are not fans of the fru fru food that comprise a lot of the current menus, and I am afraid it will get worse on the new ones.

I guess we'll know in the next couple of days.

We sailed on the wonder March 15-19. Overall we were very happy with the food. PC was our least favorite (of course this could have something to do with our ds requesting to be picked up from flounder's during the entree!). Appetizers - crab martinique and seared ahi tuna for dh. My husband loves seafood and had the mixed grill...okay. I had a few bites of ribeye (also okay) before I was called away. The servers were nice enough to pack up dessert to take back to our cabin...it was delish! Triton's had the escargot (dh favorite appetizer). I think he also had a shrimp appetizer. I had the french onion soup...excellent. DH had some fish and I had the tenderloin which was to die for (and I am not a huge meat eater!) Creme Brulee was definitely on the menu that night. Pirate night was dh favorite. He had a crab cakes (which the server brought him a second) and conch chowder. I had pot stickers (which were my favorite of the cruise). For entree dh had pasta with scallops and shrimp and red snapper (his absolute favorite of the cruise). I had sirloin of beef (which was actually a prime rib...too fatty for me). Animator's Palate was also good. DH had wild mushroom risotto (another fave) and tuna tartare. He had a five spice fish for an entree (which he really enjoyed) and our waiter brought us the samasos(sp?) to try. He was from India and this is an Indian dish. I had the black bean chipolte cakes (to the horror of our server who thought I should eat something with meat), but really enjoyed them. As you can see...we had tremendous service and really got to try a varied menu. I have sailed a lot of different lines and found this food to be comparable to most (though I have to admit Celebrity is exceptional!) As with earlier posters...I agree the trio of desserts was a great idea! Loved them! For those of you who are disappointed in the chocolate pb pie (I can understand it is my favorite combination of flavors ever :lovestruc ) give the cranberry orange cheesecake a try...wonderful.

Considering there are 10 pages on this thread, I am finding it a bit amusing to find out that there were not new menus on the Magic. I also haven't caref for anything that I have seen posted regarding the changes...but they will probably be changed before the WB TA. Maybe the dining room menus are being tweaked and if they get positive feedback on the Wonder will be transferred to the Magic with the other 4 menus remaining the same.

I don't remember before, but in AP and Triton's, they now have a dessert sampler with 3 smaller versions of desserts for people who can't make up their mind, or want a taste of several.

Oh, I love this idea. I like several smaller desserts over one big one. Can't wait to try this.

LOL Exactly!! I have tried and enjoyed duck, and am even developing a taste for lamb. Whether or not an animal is in a petting zoo has no bearing on whether or not I will eat it. Our server on the Magic was great... on our Palo night, it was just the teens in the dining room, and he actually convinced them all to try the escargot. No idea how he managed that as our nephew is the pickiest eater ever... although he did try duck for the first time on the cruise.

In Animator's Palate, there were venison medallions on the menu and our server pointed to a picture of Bambi on the wall and said (out of earshot of the younger kids) "and this evening, Bambi is on the menu". And BTW, Bambi was delicious...;)

I am never afraid to try something new.... frufru food or not.

I am never afraid to try something new.... frufru food or not.

I'm not a picky eater, but mainly used to the meat and potato normal fare. I'm pretty leary of stuff outside my comfort zone. On the EB REPO - I tried rositto (cann't wait to have it again), beef wellington, and king crab legs.

I, too was worried about how my picky family would do for 15 nights, but we managed quite fine. DS tried chicken 9 different ways. At least, if you really hate something - you can order something else at no charge - which we didn't have to do - thank goodness. There are so many food options - that if something doesn't work in the dining room - order room service or something from DECK 9. We had some kids at our table, so benefited from ordering off of their menu some times as well. I loved the little chocolate mousse that was on their dessert menu. Perfectly fine, just to order appies, or salad and not main course.

Ok, I'll try this. Not sure if I'm using the right DPI, I've never uploaded a photo like this. :confused3

I just came off the Wonder on Sunday -3/22/09.

We had an unfortunate trip and ended up having to order room service for our meals. We didn't eat dinner in any of the restaurants but guest services gave us these menus to order from when we were selected Family of the cruise. (!!) Family of the cruise meant we could order room service from any of the restaurants and not just the normal room service menu. We also got special treats sent to our room every day.

So, these seem to be copies of copies and I apologize if they are hard to read. They are a bit fuzzy in real life. I cannot find my Triton menu and it may have been tossed by accident. Apologies also for the circles on the PC menu but it's what we ordered one nite. The rib-eye was good as was the cream of green asparagus. The bacon dressing on the PC salad was yummy-sweet and a bit tart with bacon in it. The PC Sweet temptations is just the right amount of sweets--good variety. The warm banana bread was dark banana bread-sweet.

We did not order from Animator's Palate. We choose instead Triton's. The only thing I really remember from Triton's is I did not care for the filet. I'm a TX girl and we know our beef. It was tender but had no flavor. Oh, and the shrimp cocktail was good. (although I prefer red sauce with my shrimp)

If these images are to large, please let me know.

Okay well so far, I am "okay" with the changes that have been made. There are a couple of things I am disappointed did not make the cut (strawberry shortcake, chicken cheddar fritters), but a lot of the menus did stay similar, so that is good. Look forward to seeing the rest.

Just a few questions. I noticed that the Light Fare just has a small mention. Is steak no longer offered? Only salmon or chicken? That may definitely be a problem with at least one of our party members.

On the dessert trios, do they have smaller portions of each item, or is it designed to be split between multiple people?

Finally, are they only changing the menus of the restaurant menus, and leaving the specialty menus the same, or are they changing all of them? For some reason, I was thinking they changed the Pirate Night menu not all that long ago.

Thanks for your help!

We were hoping steak would remain too, it's a good back up if there is nothing else we like, we love steak.

Are the changes just a "test". I read that the Magic does not have new menus so I am wondering if these are permanent changes or just a trial. If they are a trial, how long will they leave the changes in the menu?

Thanks:stitch::goofy::mickeybar

Right now the menus have only changed on the Wonder so the menus on the Magic are the same as they have been.

I really hope that steak stays on the Lighter Fare for the Magic. My DD ate this at least 3 times and DH ordered it at least twice!!!

So if you're reading this Disney - KEEP THE STEAK ON THE LIGHTER FARE MENU!!!

Okay, I feel better now. :rotfl::rotfl:

I am sure there is more to the menu than what is shown.. DCL always takes care of vegetarians and light eaters.

There is actually not one complete thing I will eat on that menu, as written as each item has something I wont touch and no I wont experiment :) so I will just ask my server to mix and match. They did that on the Wonder for me with no problem at all.

I hope the steak stays on as well (if they change the menus on the magic before May 23rd). we are somewhat picky eaters and like this as a back up, as well as the chicken. And my ds has just discovered his love of steak (which we only eat if we eat out somewhere) and he is really looking forward to eating it on the cruise. Will keep my eye out on the menues on future cruisers posts.

DH will have a field day with these types of menus. He eats everything! Me, not so much. I am not a person that likes sauces and I don't eat seafood. I sure hope they have a good vegeratian selection and don't take out the lighter fare menus.

Are the menus on the Wonder and the Magic typically the same?

Thanks!

They were until the Wonder got these new ones last week. The Magic's menus are linked in the FAQ thread. Once we get a copy of Triton's menu posted I will do the same with these.

Hi,

The only one I can answer is the dessert trio is a very mini version of each of three desserts. Really enough for 1 person or 2 people if each takes only one bite.

We did not attend Pirates Nite so I have no idea about the menu.

Ya but we have pasta and chicken at home all the time so not really looking forward to them on vacation. Steak we only eat when we eat out and we were looking forward to it. I'm not sweating it though there is lots more to be eaten on the ship if we don't like the menu. I'm curious to find out if anyone on the wonder was still able to get the steak though since the vegetarian stuff isn't listed but is obviously still available.

I have no idea.:confused3 A lady in guest services (who was very nice) picked us--I think, I'm not sure how she came to choose us but we were very honored. The whole staff we dealt with were so very nice. To be honest, with all that was going on with us I never really took the time to go and talk with her to understand better how that happened. We just rolled with it.

Ok, I'll try this. Not sure if I'm using the right DPI, I've never uploaded a photo like this. :confused3

I just came off the Wonder on Sunday -3/22/09.

We had an unfortunate trip and ended up having to order room service for our meals. We didn't eat dinner in any of the restaurants but guest services gave us these menus to order from when we were selected Family of the cruise. (!!) Family of the cruise meant we could order room service from any of the restaurants and not just the normal room service menu. We also got special treats sent to our room every day.


Why did you have to order room service for your meals? Sorry if I'm being too nosy.:rolleyes1

Looks to me like the vegetarian stuff is put with the rest of the entrees, not being separated from the others and labeled as vegetarian like they were doing before. For example, on the AP menu, the samosas and the black bean cakes look like vegetarian entrees to me. So I wouldn't assume that steak is available. :( It might well be available, though.

also, I've been on several cruises (well OK 7 but who's counting!) and my experience is that they are VERY accomodating, and will make you just about anything reasonable. While I've not yet been on Disney, I would guess they are the same. I would wager that if you told the head waiter the first night that you wanted steak every night that you would have it.

DD10 is very picky with adult food but loves Mahi Mahi and likes a few other fish. She asked me the other day if she could have it every night and I told her to just tell the server how much she liked and perhaps they'd be able to accommodate her. If not, she'll probably just be eating chicken strips and mac'n'cheese the whole week. Oh, well, at least she won't go hungry.

On the Wonder, one of my favorite meals is the grouper with lemon/shrimp sauce on mashed potatoes/cauliflower -- you'd never know there was cauliflower in there. I think your DD may like that, too. Very mild fish.

I'm glad to see the butternut squash soup still on the menu, too, and very excited about the ahi tuna and tuna tartare - -though it'll probably be December before we cruise again!

You will need to fill out the medical form and fax it to DCL 14 days before your sailing. You can access the medical form from DCL's website.
There's no extra cost involved.

She can have it at least every night that it is being served in any restaurant. For instance, if it is normally served as part of the Parrot Cay rotational menu, you will be able to get it on the 3 rotational nights. If you let them know ahead, they might be able to fix it on additional nights.

Hey, Viv, I thought I was the only one who brought menus back from our cruise! The Head Server thought I was nuts when I asked, but he gave me photocopies of all the menus.

Everything looks mostly the same. I am disappointed that they got rid of the pasta envelopes, but thrilled that the pineapple is still on the menu.

One thing I am really disappointed in is the replacement of the Black Pearl Tenderloin with the Sirloin. I never had it, so those who have would have to inform me on this, but it seems to me like they are cheapening the meat entree. I guess to me, going from tenderloin to sirloin seems like quite a bit of a "downgrade." Of course, I am not a fan of Dijon, so I am a bit biased in my assesment of the new entree. I don't have a problem with adding dishes or modifying recipes, but when you cheapen the menu, that is what makes me a little sad.

I was just really surprised to see the tenderloin replaced, as I was under the impression that it was a pretty popular dish. Kind of like the PB Pie, it is one of those things that is going to have us asking....."Huh?"

ITA! Of course for me it's a texture thing. Now that I'm an adult I try a lot of new things, but still have had to spit stuff out.:rotfl: If it's to mushy, stringy, etc I actually feel like I am going to hurl. So no, "just trying" anything doesn't always work.

And my husband was really looking foward to steak! He works at a high end steak house and loves steak.

Ok, I found another menu from Animator's and this is a bit clearer...Hope this all helps.

We were hoping steak would remain too, it's a good back up if there is nothing else we like, we love steak.

Thanks so much for posting this

I saw someone mention about the steak not being flavorful.

I think I know why...In December we ate at GF. We all ordered the steak.

We all noticed the steak, just didn't taste right. So we asked to speak to the chef. He informed us the steak was from Australia. They had just recently switched the supplier.

So when I got back, I asked my DSL about this, since he is from Australia.
He says the difference is they are free range, so they eat anything. Not like the US which are usually fed.

We just returned late last night from the 4 night Wonder and then two nights at DW. Not impressed with the food on the ship compared to our previous 3 Disney cruises. We thought maybe we had just been expecting too much but then after eating dinner at the Brown Derby and Cinderella's Castle we don't think so. Much better dinners, even if we had to pay!

We felt the selections had too many ingredients and flavors going on. Halibut entree also had clams and mussels. I just wanted halibut. The night I had salmon it was wrapped in spinach and phyllo and came on fava beans and green pea ragout and had 4 little potato cubes. It was very rich for a salmon entree. We were last on the Wonder in Oct of 07 so I compared the two menus from pirate's nights.

Example: Soups & Salads Course "Mr. Smee's Bib Lettuce"

07--with Baby Greens and Raspberry Vinaigrette
09--with Bibb Lettuce, Baby Greens, Chicory, Tomatoes, Toasted Pine Nuts, and Raspbeery Vinaigrette

Didn't like it, only took a few bites! I thought the portions were too large to enjoy all the courses. We were on a Holland America cruise last spring and I realized how much more I enjoyed the food. Missing are the "less is more" options.

DD18 is a bit of a picky eater and was looking forward to the steaks--not available. They made her feel kind of bad when she said all she wanted was a caeser salad--never available. DD22 is a vegetarian and she didn't have too bad of a time but had to be creative. At Palo's she ordered risotta but the server insisted she have the pasta and brought her a large dish of that and a side dish of the risotta (she liked it better) and a lot of food went to waste.

Missed having real butter on the table and didn't enjoy the bread choices. Never saw a baked potato option. On Pirates night it said the bread was "Johnny Cake" but we got the same bread from the night before.

The cream brulee was "passion fruit" flavored--just not right! Never saw a fresh strawberry. Servers were all great. And yes, I have already written a letter to DCL with our thoughts!

Sadly, I'm REALLY picky about food....and absolutely nothing on the main menu for Animators sounds good now. :(

I agree with this. The new Animator's menu looks... uck... to me. Certainly nothing that would inspire me to go to a 2 hour dinner for it. Unfortunately, our next cruise will likely be with my in-laws.. their first DCL cruise. So we'd have to do Animator's for the show. :sad2:

Well, we are sailing next week and our friends who are vegetarians are sailing with us (first timers) so, I'm glad to see that there are some new vegetarian dishes on the menu ...... not that I'd ever try "spicy potato and pea samosas" :confused3

Oh noooooooooo. I pray that this was a fluke, because it sounds pretty disappointing.

Did you guys ask about the steak, and were told it was no longer available? And they won't get you just a plain Caesar salad or baked potato or white rice like in the past? Those dishes were gonna be our saving grace. I am definitely concerned now.

Why would there be no butter on the table?

Well, hopefully nothing is set in stone yet, and if they receive enough feedback, they'll make changes. I myself am considering writing a letter.

I haven't read everything, but from what I've read I'm disappointed. I don't consider myself an extremely picky eater, but I don't eat seafood, mushrooms, duck, or veal. I don't look forward to chicken very often. Maybe once on the cruise. It looks like they're cheaping out with their new menus. I don't think it's a good move with DCL being so much more expensive than other cruise lines. Food is one of the main attractions of the cruise.

I agree with the above post. I like almost any food, but it is evident that DCL has "cheapened" the menu. It doesn't take a chef to compare the old and new menus and see where they have cut costs. Time will tell if this was a wise decision.....my guess is that it will not be.

Anyone who does not like the looks of the new menu and the fact that DCL has left steak off as an option each night needs to email DCL. They have listened to guests in the past from email campaigns...reversed the added charge to go through the PC, returned the CB to the format where the characters come around to the tables and do pictures and autographs, and even the type of music that was playing in the halls outside the staterooms at one point.

Lisa...thank you for the excellent job you continue to do on the boards. I'm sure it is hard work, and you certainly should be recognized for your efforts.

I agree 100% that those who are concerned about the menu changes should voice their opinions to DCL. Having just e-mailed them with my opinions, I encourage others to follow suit.

The current Lumiere's menu on the Magic has been said to be similar to the Triton's menu before the change. They are linked in the FAQ under menus if there is a specific dish that you are looking for. :)

This will be my first Disney cruise so I won't have a previous one to compare it to. Without checking to see what the previous menus were like however, these menus all sound pretty delicious to me. Samosas, orange cranberry cheesecake, bring it all on! :) Hopefully the food quality won't fall short of the descriptions. I'm trying not to build the cruise up too much in my mind so I'm still blown away by the actual experience!

I actually thought about maybe starting some sort of petition or petitionary thread, but I do not want to be labeled an alarmist or whiner. I was just thinking those kinds of things may get more participation from people that don't have the time/motivation to contact DCL but are still upset with the changes.

Don't get me wrong. When it comes to the changes on the menus, I see some positive things and some negative things. There are dishes that I am disappointed did not make it onto the new menus, and there are also some dishes that I am excited to try.

My concern is really just for my family, who are ten times pickier than I am. I assured them that basic options would be available to them, and I am afraid, I will not be able to make good on it. I could easily see them choosing to eat at the buffet every night, and leaving myself and my sister to eat in the dining room. And, it makes me sad to think that we would not all be eating together.

I don't know if you saw one of the earlier poster's posts, but she mentioned that getting the basic sides that have always been available, like simple salad and baked potato, is no longer an option. I don't know if white rice and french fries, etc etc are included in this change. I really hope that her unfortunate experience was an isolated incident, and hope to hear from people in the coming weeks, whether getting a basic side has been a problem or not.

Also, I noticed the dessert part of the menu was not posted. Anyone have that?

The Magic's menus are the same as they were last summer and the menus are posted from August 2008. Rumor is that they will changed in June 2009.

The Wonder's menus have all changed as of 3/2/2009.

If the Magic's menus change to there being nothing I will eat, I will just go to the DR with my family, greet our server as always, let my family order and then go to the buffet and bring back a plate of what I will eat and eat with my family.. I shouldn't have to do that, but for what I am paying I will not be forced to eat food I don't like

I am hoping that they will change again before the TA. There isn't a buffet for dinner at DCL. You can hit the fast food places on deck 9 or order off the menu at Topsider's. I am interested to know if they are offering steak on the menu still there. ????
