I forgot this
The rootbeer float in a mug at Pacos Bills, they use to have an area where they just made the rootbeer floats.

I miss the old School bread in Norway and the beef and barley soup at Le Cellier.

I agree but, at least I found a new fav at Epcot, the Napoleon in France, YUM.

LOL, sad, but true. I just think they have cut so many corners to accomodate the masses that participate in the Dining Plan and "Free" Dining. The quality and variety in the food has definitely changed over the last few years.

I miss the thin, real onion rings they used to serve at 50's PT not the big ole frozen icky version they serve now. I miss the FRESHLY MADE caramel corn at Sleepy Hollow...that stuff was to die for! I also miss the strawberry swirl they served at the Enchanted Grove in Fantasyland.

Oh, how I miss that spot too. Concourse was beloved among long-time WDW guests as one the best kept secrets among the dining options.

That's because it looked unassuming and almost a bit dated, which kept the masses away. But those in the know appreciated the fact it was the top value on property for beef and a place you could still do walk ups to long after the ADR madness started. I had a ribeye there back in 2005 that absolutely blew away anything I've ever had at LeCellier or Yachtsman - and approached the same cut I had at Shulas.

Not bad for a piece of beef that cost three times less than the Shula's version.

There are two things that stick out for me that aren't around anymore:

At Jiko a few years back, I had these amazing braised lamb shanks served over cous cous. I can't remember if they were a special or just a seasonal item, but I've been back a couple times since, and they haven't been on the menu in any form. I tend to order different things depending on my mood (I'm not the kind of person who sticks to the same order in favorite restaurants), but I would definitely order that again.

The other, I know was a regular menu item, and quite a popular one from what I understand, and that's the catfish and cheese grits at Coral Reef. That was an amazing dish. I was told last time I was there that the chef pulled it because he wasn't able to get the same quality catfish he used to, so he didn't want to put out a dish not up to his standards. I can respect that. I just hope that he finds some good catfish again someday. I'd love to have it again, and I can't make it nearly as perfect as they can.
