We had dinner at WCC tonight. Here's a pic of the new platter and the included dessert sampler. Cost of the platter $32.99 per person. Our 3 meat choices were ribs, chicken and sausage. You can change your choices if you're ordering seconds, thirds etc.





We ate at Trail's End last nite and our bill was almost half of what it was tonight so for those not on the dining plan (which is us) you get better value at Trail's End (we particularly enjoyed the baked potato bar) although the WCC food was good.

I would agree based on the old menu as well, and even on the dining plan where the cost was equal we preferred Trail's End. I miss those ribs. .

I'm glad that you got to experience both and had a couple yummy meals. Thanks for sharing.

The food really doesn't look appetizing at all and certainly not worth anywhere near 32.99 WCC is a wonderful space just off a majestic lobby of WL and it is being wasted, IMHO

YUM! That looks great. We have not been to WCC yet. May have to make a trip over there during our next trip. Thanks for posting the pics.

Thank you for being the new platter beta tester, LuvGoldens! You've answered my question as to why it's no longer a skillet

Was that a portion for more than one person? I'm not a big eater, but that amount seems about right for one (vacationing) person. The desserts look much better than I imagined. Is that a strawberry shortcake in the glass? Did you try the strip loin or see what it looks like? Wondering if in any way it's an adequate substitute for the yummy brisket.

I love veggies, but those 'farm fresh veggies' look more Asian inspired than farm inspired. I agree that TE is a much better value, even without all the fun CM antics and I'm glad you tried both. What will you be reviewing tonight?

Sounds like I made the right choice booking TE for dinner in October!!!

Oh thank you, thank you!!!! I will note that room number for our stay in October, we have the woods view bunk beds booked and I was trying to figure what to request.

I'm back! Booked WL FD in a Woods view BB room! First time at WDW during the Christmas season, and probably last time until the kids are in college, so we are going all out! Got the high school to promise not to send us to truancy court for the kids to be out for 3 days. Doing one day at IOA for HP (I know, I know, but it has to be done), MVMCP on Dec 13, EMH every day. Can't wait!

They did!! And I believe they also ate their fair share of the skillet, too (Not that I would normally notice what another table was doing/ate, but they were a really fun table and made me laugh as much as the other things going on in the restaurant!)

So glad the PP showed us the new platter pic! Thank you!

Thanks everyone for the barbecue suggestions!! Flame Tree is already on my must do list for every trip to WDW...

I have also heard good things about the ribs at House of Blues. And I never thought about Big River Grill, somehow I alway forget about this restaurant. Oh, and if I manage to get a reservation at VWL, I already have plans for Hoop Dee Doo and Trails End, it just seems so convenient to do those when staying at WL as transportation appears to be much easier then.

It was good but not great, and yes, I agree not worth $32.99

Happy to have been the beta testers for the new platter Kook! That was a serving for two. Then they brought out our seconds in smaller crock like bowls. It was interesting that our server commented that her biggest problem with the change to the platter was that they were heavy to carry.

The strip loin was pretty fatty. I didn't care for it and would have much preferred brisket

In the glass was a jalapeno-lime cheesecake, it was kind of an odd combintion of tastes, wasn't really a fan.

Tonight's dinner is at 'Ohana

We'd pick TE over WCC no question after now having done both, much better value and selection. We loved the walk over from WL and came across a family of about 4 deer that had a young fawn.

Sounds like someone having a big joke on the guests. Or someone that Chef Ramsey would ask what were they thinking with that combination.

From the sounds of it, I'm glad we got to have WCC dinner before the change. That platter is of no interest to us: too much food/expense.

So we just landed back in Cali this am, and we're already on our way to DL. not really planned, but its a dinner celebration for DBFs father, grandmother, and sister!!

When is a girl supposed to plan her next trip?' Lol
