Crab legs at Cape May thread-crab legs still going strong! :)

I could have sworn when I made my ADR a month ago, it listed crab legs on the menu. I just checked it today, no crab legs.
Am I losing it?
Disappointing...

EDIT TO ADD:
I emailed WDW:

Thank you for contacting the Walt Disney World® Resort.



It appears that crab legs are not offered at this time; however, the menu is subject to change without notice. We advise all guests to check the website before arrival to verify their information.

EDITED TITLE: since they are still there. Hopefully the menu gets updated soon!!
i hope they are still there for future ADRs!

Oh, that would be a problem for us. My kids LOVE crab legs! That was the whole reason we made that ADR.

I understand the menu at Cape May rotates. Perhaps the crab legs are only offered on certain nights?

I really hope not. We went last trip and loved it and were planning on eating there again next trip. If the crab legs have been removed we definitely won't be returning.

Noooooooo!!!!! That was a BIG reason for our September ADR here!!! That's like taking steak off the menu at Yachtsman!! I just looked at the menu, and it doesn't look like they even added anything in its place!!

Has anyone reported that they really don't have them? I would imagine there would be some pretty upset diners. Reading this has made me sick as it is the highlight of the trip for DH and my DS loves it as well.

Chances are that the CM who responded is just looking at the same online resource as you are - a CM portal version, rather than the external web site.

I would request that they specifically contact the restaurant management to confirm. Or I might call the WDW switchboard and ask to be connected to the kitchen at the restaurant yourself. I have had good luck in the past getting restaurant details this way, although admittedly it has been a few years since I've tried it.

1) New Cape May SEAFOOD Menu (no more crab legs, at least foreseeable future): *
. . . Seafood Selections
. . . Steamed Mussels with a side of Tomato Sambuca Broth
. . . Paella
. . . Steamed Clams
. . . Herb-marinated Salmon
. . . Batter-fried Shrimp (offered Sunday & Wednesday)
. . . Fried Clam Strips (offered Monday, Thursday, and Saturday)
. . . Batter-fried Calamari (offered Tuesday & Friday)

2) Captains Grille Menu:
. . . Snow Crab Legs New Potatoes and Corn on the Cob $29.99
. . . New York Strip Creme Fraîche Whipped Potatoes, Roasted Mushrooms, Oven-cured Tomatoes, and Cabernet Reduction $29.99
. . . Cabernet-braised Short Rib Corn Risotto, Pan Jus Reduction, and Corn Cream $24.99
. . . Rosemary-brined Pork Tenderloin Braised Pork Belly, White Bean Purée, Cherry Gastrique, Ham Jus, and Braised Greens $23.99
. . . Market Fish Seasonal Accompaniments (Market Price) Chef's Pasta Creation $19.99
. . . Chef's Vegetarian Inspiration Seasonal Accompaniments $14.99
. . . Pan-seared Chicken Roasted Carrot Purée, Green Onion, Glazed Radish, Artichokes, and Lemon-Thyme Butter $19.99
. . . Lump Crab Cakes Old Bay Gaufrette Chips, Stone-ground Mustard Cream, Lemon Emulsion, Succotash, and Greens $27.99

3) Yes, Cape May no longer has Crab Legs, but Captains Grille does.
4) However, crab legs at Capt Grille are ONE serving, not AYCTE.
5) Too many people "pigged out" on crab legs at Cape May.
6) They were no longer profitable.
7) Some people, I swear, ruin it for others !!!

* Fortunately, for many (including me), the crab legs at Cape May were small and not filled with much
meat. One had to really work to get enough. In our opinion, they were of lesser quality than the Lobster
Feast on Hwy-192. And, that is not not a glowing comment or endorsement.

I hope this is just temporary!

We're there in 3 weeks and the crab legs are a favorite of ours. Bummer!

Oh no!! I booked an ADR here for the first time for Sept. because the family loves crab legs... anyone eating there after menu change, please keep us posted if this holds true!! Now to search for another ADR (I was excited about Cape May) I know I am not the norm but I have a hard time with Epcot ADRs

I bet! We went to a buffet here a few years ago that offered crab legs, and there was a women there with MULTIPE plates of crab legs. I can only imagine what was happening in WDW....

Oh yes I've seen people pile their plates up so high with crab legs at the buffet that a few fell off their plates on the ground and they just kept walking yikes! I saw one lady at WDW wrap a few in napkins and stick them in her purse and it was summer ... Yuck who'd want to eat a crab leg later on after siting in her purse or actually to take them my goodness! Yeah I'm sure the crab legs get hit real hard by many people at the buffet so not cost effective any longer to keep them on the menu
