You can view the menu both at allears.net and Disney's web site. I just made reservations there for our December trip after it was highly recommended by DISers (and the CM I spoke with).

When I looked at allears earlier today it said it was updated in August, but the other day on here someone said they changed the menu last week and the ribeye was no longer on it along with some other changes.

I don't know about any changes. I guess the best thing to do would be to call Disney Dining to make sure, which I might do later. DS10 is looking forward to having the teriyaki-style New York strip steak and I was contemplating whether or not to go for the ribeye or coconut-almond chicken.

Okay, I know everyone hates when favorites disappear and I'll certainly miss the tuna oscar myself, but is anyone else excited about the changes? Kona fell off our must-do list a couple trips ago, not because the food wasn't good but because the menu was very static and we'd kind of gotten in a rut ordering the same things (tuna oscar for me, shrimp & scallops for DH & the kids) every time we visited. Now I'm feeling like it needs to go back on the list to give some of the new items a chance... The new tuna dish sounds good, though maybe a little too similar to the one I liked at Narcoosees a few years back, DH loves lamb, and I know my kids will have a hard time deciding between the duck and the clams.

I wanted to try the ribeye that they removed. I have a reservation there for Oct 1st that I will probably keep because I also think that the new tuna dish sounds really good.

I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

Thank you! One addition I know my DS10 will love is the duck. But I'm also disappointed that the rib-eye was taken off.

Yes, it's gone. We ate there last month and the server told us the menu was getting ready to change and that my dish (shrimp/scallops) was being dropped along with the rib-eye. I always seem to have a favorite here and it always gets deleted. I use to love their filet, then I loved their prime rib -- so watch out, everytime I like something here is gets dropped. I actually didn't get shrimp/scallops last month, they substituted shrimp for the scallops and I had all shrimp. It was yummy.

I think the chicken sounds great, but doesn't the salad with it make the whole meal too sweet?? I was going to sub the salad with mashed potatoes but it looks like they are gone

I have a reservation for Nov., and when I saw the shrimp and scallops were gone I was thinking of cancelling too, but then I noticed lamb chops-yummy! I'm happy again!

If you wanted the ribeye and haven't actually had it, I didn't think it was that great. The teriyaki steak was much better. I liked the tuna oscar, but I'll try the new one to compare.
