1) Correct.
2) And, as a surprise to many, "free dining" is in the hotel room cost.
3) The restaurants nor the parks pay for free dining.
4) This is paid directly by the individual resort.
5) So, it is already built into your room fee.
6) And, it comes off the profit margin of the hotel General Manager.
7) This is also why there are different amounts of packages at each hotel.
8) And, some hotels may not even offer free dining for some room categories.

Hey there- Post # 863 has the menu pictured- http://www.disboards.com/showthread....4#post46199154

Sadly, I have just canceled my ADR for my last day staying at the property- we choose it so my husband could have the skillet for lunch. Hopefully they will see the trend for the cancellations and see that people wanted choices. They need to be careful about the "burn and turn" attitude that Disney appears to be adopting. For the price we are paying for the food/experience it should be about relaxing, enjoyment.

This is the correct lunch menu. The dinner menu appears to not have been posted yet.

Also, Disney is able to change their menus twice a year so there is a possibility that other restaurants could have changes too but WCC is probably the biggest menu change.

Take out the salad and add a dessert? Now THAT'S a surprise. How on earth did Disney let the green on this menu escape them for so long????

The pulled pork spring rolls made the menu... yay! DH will mourn the missing venison chili & I will miss the lunch skillet.

Everything we had there back in September was excellent (as was the service), it ended up being our favorite meal. Not sure we will do the skillet at night, but I do like the options they have for it. Was the new price posted? (If so I missed it.)

But the dinner platter (replaces skillet) description from AllEars is provided in post 862 of that thread.

Hey the lunch looks pretty good. And alcoholic shakes.

Haven't seen any lunch dessert menu posted, or any description of the dinner dessert sampler. Or anything about vegetarian/vegan alternatives at dinner, except for the vegetable sides. There's a mixed green salad on the lunch menu.

The lunch menu does mention only three flavors of milkshake - chocolate, vanilla and stawberry. Am I correct in thinking that they had more flavors available previously?

The dining plan is a symptom, not a cause. It is part of the streamlining of WDW restaurants, but didn't cause it.

They had a orange shake when we went a few years back

I'm sad to see the salad gone (loved it) but I'll console myself with Pa's Maple Shake, that sounds nice.

We love, love, love the WL. DH "won't let us" stay anywhere else

But, we've never been a huge fan of WCC and now with the platter only menu for dinner... No thank you. Not a fan of a bunch of food slapped on a plate. And really, how much does lettuce cost? Bad choice Disney.

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. After looking at the menu, I'm more disappointed! This will be our last TS meal at Disney, and I feel it will be a sad way to end. My DH LOVES WCC, and we were going just for the skillets. I plan on sharing the menu with him and letting him decide if we go or cancel. If we cancel, I just don't know what to replace it with. We will be staying at VWL and will be going into MK at 4:00. We really just wanted to hang out at the resort and enjoy it that morning and early afternoon. We will have a car though and could possibly drive somewhere. I was just wanting to avoid that, if possible.
